    Well said William Parker like you soap is one thing I never, never watch. I remember when my parents were alive we had to sit around the box and watch Christmas eastenders. It has to be one of the most depressing things we had to do, pass the Prozac please. Christmas is a time for goodwill lets have real comedy and interesting programs and no soap for the whole of the Christmas period. Remember when Neighbours was on the BBC it was dumped for Christmas so if it can be done for one it can be done for all. End of rant.
