What. an. episode. It was live! It was revelatory! Take a look at the rehearsal and backstage pictures to witness the glory and see what the cast got up to behind the scenes... *Sniff* RIP Bradley

Bradley's fall
Bradley nooooooooooo!!!! OH there's a massive cushion underneath it. In that case... that looks like fun... can we have a go?

Lacey Turner (Stacey)

Poor old Stacey. Bradley's gone. At first we felt sorry for her. Now we're all like, HANG ON A MINUTE. HOW COULD SHE DO THAT TO BRADDERS? Must be the second stage of grief.

Charlie Clements (Bradley) and Scott Maslen (Jack)

Bradley Branning RIP. Come on, Jack! Will him back to life with the power of your manly eyes!

Charlie Clements (Bradley)

Charlie gets ready for the big episode... "Just don't touch the suit, alright?"

Sid Owen (Ricky) and Patsy Palmer (Bianca)

Patsy Palmer (Bianca) mucks around in reception

Emer Kenny (Zsa Zsa) and Rita Simons (Roxy)

Mmmmm.... food! Emer (Zsa Zsa) and Rita (Roxy) decide they'll need an extra bit of energy for the liveness of the episode. Note: fruit totally ignored.

Lindsey Coulson (Carol), Himesh Patel (Tamwar), Nitin Ganatra (Masood), Nina Wadia (Zainab)

Lindsey Coulson (Carol) chats to the Himesh (Tamwar), Nitin (Masood) and Nina (Zainab) in all of their wedding finery.

Charlie G Hawkins (Darren)

"Pssst.... think I just found out who killed Archie..." texts Charlie G Hawkins (Darren). Yeah, you and the rest of us, Hawkins

Melissa Suffield (Lucy) and Thomas Law (Peter)

An extremely glamorous looking Melissa (Lucy) and Thomas (Peter) rest their legs before getting shouted at (in the case of Lucy) by Phil Mitchell in the live episode.

Gillian Wright (Jean)

Gillian Wright (Jean) wears her EastEnders padded jacket with pride as she peruses the snacks on offer in the sandwich shop.

    RE Bianca- housing is difficult to get if you are not on the streets (beacuse you are not classed as priority unless for another reason) and even then its hard, and once you are living somewhere you are not priority to be housed. Also I think its nice that Pat's got company, but it was daft moving Sam in.
    RE Stacy- agree with the holes, but I don't think she would want to get caught...if she had been the killer, and she thought Bradley was implicated, realistically she may have done a runner earlier without the daft actions of Jack.

    The live episode was excellent, I was on the edge of my seat throughout.

    The only thing I found irratating about the show was the fact that Bradley died. Are the writers of the show capable of allowing a character to exit the show with a big story line without dieing? Obviously they're not!

    One thing I would really like to see is Becca brutally murdered, she is one nasty piece of work! Perhaps Janine could be too!

    The live episode was excellent! My compliments for both cast and crew!
    Eastenders has not only been watched in the UK, but here in the Netherlands there are lots of people watching the show too! Which is not surprising because Eastenders is brilliant with both its excellent storylines and actors!

    I was sure that Sam killed Archie. Stacey crossed my mind for a moment because of the motive, her fear for Archie. But then I thought;"impossible". To me it was clear that Sam did it, in my opion she had both motive and opportunity. So I was really surprised that it turned out to be Stacey.

    It's a shame that Bradley died. Wouldn't it be wonderfull to see them as a happy family? That is, a happy family with a secret! Who's the father of baby Branning? Is it Ryan? Or didn't Archie shoot blanks at that particulair moment after all? A dna-test reveals it all!

    I am still wondering when Owens body will be discovered.

    i was very upset to see Bradley killed off. I never thought of Stacey as the killer. No dramatic arrest though just stacey meekly admitting killing stacey

    I think the the producers of Eastenders must be sadists.
    Firstly- why is the message of this programme always that people who commit crimes getaway with it and people who are decent always are killed or die off?
    Why after so much heartache, are characters simply not allowed to be happy? Why is the message constantly through this programme, that what ever you go through, that there is no hope, that bad things will keep on happening, that there is no light at the end of the tunnel?
    Everything in this programme is extreme and not real life. Total reliance on sensationalism, and not on good script writing and dialogue.
    After Mr Santer decided to kill off Danielle I thought that the makers of this programme would not pull another stunt like this. Then followed the awful caricatures that are supposed to be a Muslim family in Eastenders. The charcter of Saeed who was so obviously in his behaviour a heterosexual suddenly decides to play at being gay? He, when he was away from his family and community, free to do what ever he wanted, chose to be with Amira, suddenly decides he is gay? I don't think so. No matter how much you retrospectively put it into the script now- doesn't match up with how you portrayed him in the past. Which leads me to the conclusion that again this was for sensationalism, and to pander to the current climate of Islamophobia. No Mr Santer- you couldn't even get the prayers right, you couldn't even find someone who could recite the Quran at the Nikah (sorry do you know what that is??) properly, and who advised you that this wedding was a typical Muslim wedding? Micky Mouse?
    What about Denise's family- yet another black guy who is a murderer. In fact, I can safely say that there is not one single family that has been on Eastenders, that is from an ethnic minority that is a positive role model- each one has had a murderer/gangster/ thief etc except the character who used to clean the streets- cant remember his name, sorry. But, oh yes true to form, wasn't his brother a drug dealer???
    Then after all the character of Bradley had gone through, and Stacy- why an ending like that? Why kill him off- yet again reinforcing to the youth negative stereotypes and doom and gloom is all anyone has to look forward to?
    In all the hysteria of the live episode and all the birthday celebrations- you forget one thing- your storyline will not stand up to scrutiny. The dialogue of Peggy Mitchel- when she said "I'll tell you the truth" in the Ronnie's bedroom- sorry but if she was innocent she wouldn't have spoken like that, especially being distressed at Ronnie and Roxy fighting with eachother, totally wrong and inappropriate to the situation!
    Would a character like Bradley be running around on a roof when he cared so much about Stacy, his pregnant, bipolar wife? I dont think so- very silly. You have ill used your actors. THEY did a superb job tonight especially Samantha Womack, Rita Simons, and of course Charlie Clements and Lacy Turner. But who were you kidding? This story line was appalling- oh yes sensational but appalling. What a let down.
    Lastly, if Mr Clements was so emotional when he knew he was leaving, I think the real reason why the superb MS Lacy didn't appear is she is upset at the prospect of being bumped off the show- after all how much notice did she get- half an hour?
