Max hit in hit and run whodunnit
EastEnders' Max Branning is left fighting for his life at the end of the month when he is dramatically mown down in a hit-and-run.
Max, played by 36-year-old Jake Wood, plots revenge against his brother Jack (Scott Maslen) when he has him arrested for attempted murder, but in a sensational Halloween twist, Max is knocked over by Darren Miller's (Charlie G. Hawkins) speeding car and left for dead.
An Albert Square source told DS: "It's definitely a shocker. Max finally realises the trauma he's caused his family over the last number of months and goes to resolve his differences with Tanya. He doesn't make it across the Square, though. Before he gets across the road, an unidentified driver knocks him down."
They added: "Max has made enough enemies over the last year to last him a lifetime. So the big question will be - who tried to kill Max? Was it Bradley? Stacey? Tanya? Callum? Peter? The list could go on!"
Last week, it was announced that former Footballers' Wives actress Alison Newman is to make an appearance as DI Keeble, one of the detectives who heads up the investigation.
Earlier this year, Max's wife Tanya (Jo Joyner) tried to kill her husband by burying him alive in a coffin.
The hit-and-run will transmit in an hour-long Halloween special on Thursday, October 30 at 7.30pm on BBC One.
