And it’s Gwen Taylor too. She’s a much better actress than this, but isn’t at all convincing.
She was superb on Corrie a decade back
This Aaron far-right/extremist storyline is pretty tough to watch. But I can see that it's raising awareness about a real problem that's on the rise and the damage it can cause. Hopefully they continue to handle it in a sensitive way.
i agree, I’m just catching up on the last month or so and it’s really uncomfortable viewing. I hope it can raise awareness and I hope it isn’t dragged out until next Christmas.
Plus Hollyoaks did it a couple of years ago, and that was equally uncomfortable viewing (and I think they dragged it out for a year).
Following on from my last post, I do think most soaps get it completely wrong these days on how long storylines go on for. Take the Gray thing. Murdered his wife a year and three months ago and we’re still waiting for it to be resolved. I think it might be coming up at Christmas, but even so, I’m bored with it. There’s a very fine line between keeping people watching and boring them to death waiting.
And often, when it is finally resolved, it’s a huge anti-climax and over with too quickly with not much aftermath.
I used to love Neighbours in the late 80s (when everyone else did). A storyline would last a few days and then get sorted, and if you didn’t like one, it would be over soon and another would come along. Soaps these days rely on too many slow-burners.
Love Whitney's redone red hair for taking centre stage this week. There seems to be a lot going on, and I'm spoiler free (always for the best).
I feel like the producers have really kept their cards close to their chest this year, I have no idea where anything is going. Hope there’ll be lots of surprises and twists & turns over Christmas and New Year.
Neighbours is still pretty much like that sometimes except for the big “dramatic” storylines.
Next month looks lit for it ddd
The spoilers are very thin on the ground this year.
But pictures from location filming do seem to suggest that:
Chelsea is nowhere to be seen at either wedding
Not them cutting away from a Stacy Vs Janine argument in The Vic!!!
If we don't finally get another round of BUSH PUSH next year then I'm writing to Ofcom!
Also I loved how Whitney was channelling the spirit of Emma Summerhayes tonight.
OK, the last five minutes of tonights was fucking Camp
I cannot wait to see how it all turns out
I had to rewind. Iconic.
I’m dizzy from the head movements.
I'm living for Whitney's scheming.
That should have been an hour, it felt so rushed! And all engineered so *that* could be the final line.
Loved the wedding twist, Janine and Mick shouldn't have so much chemistry, poor Sonia.
We should have known the Dotty twist was coming...
Really hoping Whitney and Chelsea join forces, ala Zoe, Sam and Chrissie with Dirty Den..
Can’t believe how low the overnights are for a Christmas Day episode - 2.92m
Extra spoilers are out for tomorrow’s episode.
EastEnders' Chelsea Fox to be rushed to hospital after killer Christmas discovery
Her escape plan is ruined… for now.
