A Cracking Time...
Ah Easter! A time of bunnies, bonnets and boxes of chocolates. All of which sounds like an episode of 'Cranford' only set in the Playboy mansion with a guest appearance by the Milk Tray Man. Sorry - I've obviously had too much chocolate already, the sugar has rushed to my head! Anyway, with a nice long weekend and a thriller of an EastEnders story in motion, I thought I'd indulge in a tabloid style holiday barometer:
UP Heather Trott - finally some kind of explanation as to why she acts like an eight year old
DOWN Heather Trott - please, no more Trotts; don't say the Alice band story is a cue for Father Trott to appear
UP Adam Woodyatt - I've banged on about this before, but the man deserves a Soap Award. He makes Ian creepily egotistic one minute and heartbreakingly vulnerable the next
DOWN Where are Billy and Honey? Give them a storyline and put Hinty/Hefty on a semi-permanent backburner; I think we've all had enough
UP Tanya/Max/Sean: craziest story in years, but thrilling all the same. The acting has been superb
DOWN Queenie Trott - the pits, in so many ways
UP EastEnders' writers; we've had some very sharp and witty dialogue lately, juxtaposed with some heavyweight stories
DOWN Ben Mitchell - the creepiest Cupid ever. 'You two are going to do it'!? Yuk and double yuk; the hills are alive with the sound of puking
UP Phil and Shirley (Phirley?) The best match since Den and Angie. They should run the Vic together. Incredible chemistry between the actors and it gets better with every episode
DOWN Minty and Garry's St. Patricks Day 'riverdance'. No more line/river/dirty dancing, ever. You are grown men, allegedly.
UP Rob Kasinsky - need I explain?
DOWN Rob Kasinsky is leaving - again, need I explain?
Until next time, Happy East(er)Enders!
