EastEnders

w/c 7th March looks to be a pretty major week with the new schedule coming into force and some pretty significant Gray developments. Also the return of Simon Ashdown as a writer who has pretty much every brilliant episode of EastEnders you can think of:

Monday 7th March
The Carters struggle to cope in the wake of some devastating news. Bailey has one last shot at reuniting Karen and Mitch, and Vinny tries to prove himself to Suki.

Tuesday 8th March
The pieces of the puzzle fall into place for Shirley. Chelsea is willing to do anything to protect Jordan, and Rocky turns to Rainie for help.

Wednesday 9th March
The walls are starting to close in on Gray, forcing him to go to desperate lengths. Chelsea has to think on her feet, and Mitch is left sick to his stomach by recent developments.

Thursday 10th March
With the truth about his dark past finally coming to light and numerous people with their sights on revenge, Gray realises his options are quickly running out. How far will he go to escape justice, and will someone else take matters into their own hands?[/spoilers]
I read about this today. They are moving EastEnders to 7:30pm Mon to Thurs. As ITV is also changing its schedule, I’m assuming this will mean it’s going directly up against Emmerdale? Unless ITV are moving Emmerdale to 8pm on Tues and Thurs (when Coronation Street isn’t on).

Yeah it's going head to head with Emmerdale. The BBC are doing it in response to ITV's major schedule changes which will see an hour long news from 6:30-7:30 followed by Emmerdale and then Coronation Street is changing to an hour long format from 8-9 Monday, Wednesday, Friday.

I assume the BBC think EastEnders stands a better chance having a lead-in from The One Show rather than Emmerdale does following an hour of news.
 
When are they going to cart Phil away? He keeps reminding us at least six times an episode that he isn’t going to be there. I wish they’d get on with it.
 
What a tense episode.

I think given the circumstances I'd probably have closed that bloody dishwasher at some point though.
The first time we saw it I just turned to my mum and said, “Why is that dishwasher always open?!”

But yeah, a great week of episodes so far. The slow build of it all has been so good and shows that when EastEnders gets it right, they really get it right.

It’s also been nice seeing Linda Henry have something to get her teeth into after months of just milling about.
 
I think someone already mentioned this a bit ago (I can’t find the post to quote), but I hope Kush isn’t forgotten about in this. Whitney seems to have worked everything else out so hopefully it won’t be too long before the penny drops. How will they prove it though? Unless Gray confesses (which seems unlikely), he may only go down for two murders.
 
No, 5 if that. I was disappointed. How many times was he going to get away, and how many times weren’t the police there? It got silly. I was willing Shirley to finish him off, Mick not to stop her, Karen not to miss and Whitney to let go. Each time he got away with it. Where were the police?

Yes, he faces a life in prison, but he took three lives away.

But thank goodness it’s finally over.

The new set looks nice but too new. Huge parts we’ve never seen before.
