EastEnders: Discussion Thread

Newman's era just seemed deathly boring with a series of really terrible new characters. I don't know what it will be remembered for in the long-run, or if it will be a completely forgotten era of the show.

It's a shame she never worked out given her long history with the show. I didn't want her stuff consistently, I think she made an effort, she just didn't know how to properly execute some of her ideas. I did notice that Kat was more like her 2000-2005 self in the episodes I recently watched (and Jessie is back to her 2005 hairdo), and there seemed to be more of an effort made for diversity (even if not well realized).

This could either be a good thing, or it could be another Eddie Royale situation. If this couple has no chemistry with each other, or with the wider community, the whole thing would be a gigantic flop. Other the other hand, if it works, it could be the kick on the arse the show needs.

I don't mind Shirley, but she's always squarely a supporting character, I really don't see the point in tying her to the new owners. They seem to be casting loads of family around her, I don't think she works as a front and center type character, but will have to see to judge.

David's return is pretty decent so far, he's seemed to fit back in almost seamlessly. I did like that little scene with Sharon and Carol in yesterday's episode, it was the most in-character I've seen Sharon from the stuff I've seen of her return too.

I don't know if they're going to attempt David/Carol again. I don't know if I could ever see those two long-term given their history, and they're not really in the Pat/Frank vein.

I know a lot of people felt that way about her and Jamie. (I thought Martin was cute but not sure if other fans did).

I don't see a point in Sonia returning long-term but I wouldn't mind a visit, especially to see more of her with Carol.

Natalie Cassidy is one of those people who screwed themselves over by believing they were a "celebrity." She became way too known for her personal life and her personal feuds, and I think it hurt her career a lot.

I hate her (both actress and character). A lot of my least favorite storylines during periods where I loved the show involved her.

While her relationship with Carol is relatively unexplored, I think Sonia was burnt out by the time she left and there's nothing left to explore with her at this point.

I guess the upside is that we have someone with the Fowler last name on the show again...
