    Comment number 1.

    Last year, when Norman told Jean he'd had five wives, she said, "I'm like that with cardigans. Have to try a lot on before I decide." Jean is probably right, people are like cardigans.

    Derek is a god awful character, unrealistic and just plain cringeworthy to watch. why do the writers pull in every 5 years a gangster type characrter that doesn work, and then pullin a few cronies to back the chacter up when its not working and then they get killed off only to start the cycle again a few years down the line, give it up and put some more real characters in, as the great ones are leaving, has a feel of a singking ship and rats sometimes. a shame as tehre are real glimmers of excellent storylines sometimes.

    Jason - I couldn't agree more. I have never written a comment like this before, and please Eastenders production team, don't think It must be a good thing that I have now. I have watched the show for years, and the character of Derek seriously puts me off the show. He's just such a badly realised caricature of a gangster, but in such a sad way. It really feels like lazy development, the Branning brother could have been a more real person, rather than a panto villain, and not even one you can love to have. Read the forums people, people don't like him.

    Here, Here I couldn't agree more, I always looked forward to watching eastenders on TiVo after a long shift, glass of wine and eastenders, not its beastenders, I hate Derek in eastenders, Jack and Max were better characters without him, Just plain sad now.

    I like Derek as a character. He's been in the show for just over 4 months so I think Eastenders can start to develop the character. He has the potential to be a very interesting character, but whether the scriptwriters deliver is a different matter...

    Why are producers / publicity department still pushing the rubbish that Derek is loved by viewers. When you read this site and also the Digital Spy site you see how much the character is loathed and viewers are switching off BECAUSE OF HIM. He is just a joke and the comments all seem to back up this opinion. I have switched off now and i hope that producers take the advice of many and get rid before all the love is lost ... If heather is to die ... use it as an opportunity to get rid of Derek by making him the culprit and you get rid without egg on face. Producers can change storylines very quickly when things are not liked by viewers- the baby swap plot is the prime example ... DO SOMETHING before more viewers leave like I have after 20 years ... I am eager to come back but will stick with Emmerdale until its sorted as that is so much stronger at the moment.

    I loathe Derek! Such an awful guy. I hate the way he sets Jake up against Roxy. Eastenders used to be my favourite show of all but now...... A little more love in the show would be a good thing, I think.

    If there is any program most contributing to the demise of this county, it will eastenders. Character of Derek is not portraying any reflection of the real life in this country but it portrays what does not happen.
    Drama that fills my living room 4 nights a week at prime time of TV, should be uplifting, hope raising, encouraging, motivating and heartwarming.
    Would it not be better if we portray those who are successful, inteligent, innovative, honest, just, hardworking, charitable and kind in this program. We have them in abundance in our society, why don't we promote the good?

    You guys have issues.. Saying all of this stuff about Derek is ridiculous. I think he's a great character, I dont get why hes hated by many, If you wanna switch off because of him, then do so please, you ain't a proper fan.. There are people like Derek out there, what gives you the idea there "Isn't"? *His character is unrealistic* No. You do realise, it's just TV and not reality? It's for entertainment purposes, which I enjoy a lot. You people dont like baddies in Eastenders so you switch off, you ain't a proper fan.. I think you should stick to chick flicks, Eastenders obviously isn't for you.
    I feel sorry for Jamie who plays his character, he plays him well and his character is getting hated by many for silly reason.
    As I said, if you switch off because of something like that, you aint a proper fan. I'll never switch off Eastenders no matter what.
