    I mean both have been way more prominent and needed than Shirley for example, who is so redundant now it hurts.

  2. Lorraine Stanley’s inability to act is the main sticking point for me.

  3. I don't have a real opinion either way about Karen or Dorothy Jr, but if Dreary Dana is there, then they should be too.

    Anyway, I've always wanted Kim Medcalf back just because she was a great character and I love the mess of the role going back and forth, so this is great news.

  4. Yes, it’s good news. Much better than re-casting again and have a third actress play her. Danniella Westbrook (or Danniella Morgan as she was known at this point) has just reappeared in the 1999 episodes on the Drama channel, after a gap of three years. Her acting is not good. They have to film her at angles so that her nostrils can’t be seen.
  5. But you want to include Dana the most Alice Branning character/actor since Alice Branning?
  6. Dana has a lot of potential.

    It’s a cute little montage. Let’s not overthink it.

  7. The only potential Dana has is to be axed before Easter.

    Hopefully Janine frames her for a murder.
  8. The Argee Bhajee is apparently exploding in February :)

  9. Zaraah was absolutely phenomenal in this scene, and in the one where she was removing her makeup. Her and Shona work so well together. I really hope the show is able to hold onto her.

    Also, not sure if anyone saw this! "Danniella Westbrook plans to sue BBC over EastEnders character replacement" https://www.mirror.co.uk/tv/tv-news...r.com&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=sharebar

  10. Danniella having a meltdown on Twitter about the recast is sending me, god love The Westbrook.

  11. Didn't she do this in 2005 as well
  12. She has no grounds to sue unless it was somehow stated in her contract that she has an exclusive right to play the character. How bizarre.

    Really they should hire both of them and just use them in alternate weeks. Or episodes. Or scenes! It wouldn't make any less sense than what they've done with the character up to this point.
  13. The sexual chemistry in that police van
  14. Exactly. It's not as if she has any kind of current contract - she was last on the show in 2016. The only way I can think she'd have any sort of case is if the person in charge at the time (was it still Treadwell-Collins) made some kind of verbal, or even written, agreement that she could come back again.

    I definitely was expecting a kiss!

  15. So Stacey had opened a Sandwich Van... yet Keegan already sells sandwiches on the square?
    GodsAndMonsters and iveivan like this.
  16. Isn't Stacey's just breakfast rolls though?

    Also, it was a little frustrating that the "promo" for the past week's episodes were saying that Tina's body was going to be found, only for the complete opposite to happen. I know they're slowly drip dripping things at the moment - such as the nurse who spoke to Chelsea, and Whitney going to the police - but I really want them to start wrapping things up now. I was hoping it would all be done by birthday week, but that doesn't seem to be the case.

  17. I feel like it's going to be an Easter thing. And Lent doesn't even begin until March.

  18. Gray isn’t dead is he? That would be a terrible way to deal with him. Much too quick and easy. Life-changing injuries perhaps? Or full recovery?

    Hopefully Kheerat won’t be done for murder, manslaughter or attempted murder, assault etc. It’s Gray that needs to suffer, it’s been much too long coming.

    Why did Whitney not come in the house?? Surely she would have heard the commotion.
  20. Don’t you just think that Lacey Turner add such gravitas and prestige to everything she touches? What a gem.
