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.

    I want to congratulate the Eastenders cast and crew on a fantastic live episode. We were gripped by the whole thing and did not leave the settee. I did not want Bradders to die but I guessed Stacey this morning! So I am very happy. The whole thing was amazing, thank you.

    Absolutely fantastic but I hope Lacey doesn't leave anytime soon. Don't know if I'm embarrassed to admit or not but tonight was the second time she has reduced me to tears with her performance - and I've only ever cried at TV/Movies twice! The first time was the episode when she got sectioned. Not a lot breaks me down but she really is a brilliant, very talented actress and seeing how she has grown and improved since she joined the cast is lovely. I'm 20 and have being stuck in a dead end job since I left school, despite achieving excellent exam results, seeing Lacey's performances over the last year has motivated me to take up acting. Keep it up and try not to kill her off!

    OMG!!!!! i loved it!!!!! i was waiting for the 19th february.. and there is come... i didnt miss a second!!!! i was scotching at my screen!!!!
    I m french and i live here since 2002... i always love eastenders since i began to watch it!!!
    i didnt saw the " archie's murder" on christas day because i was in france to celebrate it .. but when i got back i tried to catch it... and i had my suspects....
    i always thought that it will be someone not easy to think... archie' family was the easy option for me... but hey who knows...
    my primes suspects was : bradley, jack, stacey... and peggy
    i wasnt sure who did??
    the writers did everything they could to keep the suspense and well done to you!!!!!
    i cried and i cried like bradley was someone from my family... seeing him falling down just broke my heart... and seeing everyone acting shock make this scene much horrible... too sad
    i love eatenders!!!!! i watched it every night and still watching the omnibus on sunday.... i am an addict!!!! lol
    you know what??? i love when i go back to my country but it make me a bit sad... euh a lot lol.. because when i am abroad i cant watch the episodes.. what a shame...
    well done to everyone on eastenders.. keep going.. well done!!!

    Thought everyone did really well 2nite in the live show although im totally devastated that Bradley has been killed.I cried for a while after it, i dont think Bradley should have been killed, personally i would have killed off Janine, She is a hateful girl.

Great Acting By All The Cast Especially Lacey Turner & Charlie Clements! Can't Believe She Fessed To Max!! = O Is He Gonna Understand, Or Hold A Grudge Against Her Now?! And Will She Tell The Police?! Still In Shock!! Congrats on 25 years EE though!!

    what en episode, well done 2 all the cast and crew, the work the main characters put into that was amazing, very nerve wrecking im sure but what an amazing episode, didnt see that one coming, altho i heard charlie clements was to be killed off and im gutted i must say. he's an amazing character and i wish him all the best with whatever his career brings him. lacey turner played an amazing role as well along side max's character, very emotional and very well done. brought a tear to my eye hahaha im a huge fan of the soap and 2 script such an imense episode for a 25th anniversary was seriously worth the wait. congratz on getting this far, cant wait to see wat other story lines are to come. xxxx susan frm belfast

    Where have all the Bradleys gone! Long time passing! Where have all the Bradleys gone! :P lol! Awesome Show I loved it! They did an excellent job & I bet they cant wait to get home & put there feet up! Bradley was an ace Character! I feel like I've been thrown in a Black Hole now Bradleys gone! He was such a good Character! If you think about it! Stacey has just KILLED BRADLEY! (Without Physical Force Though) The way Bradley put his face in the last few weeks he looked Guilty! But all he did was Smack Archie one! Its never gonna be the same without Bradley now & I think Bradleys Dad well was Dad! Well he still is the Dad! Nevermind I'll just end up confusing myself! Now........ back to the Point! I think Max will Grass Stacey Up & I HOPE HE DOES! HE WILL AVENGE BRADLEYS DEATH! Poor Bradley! He Died In Vain! I cant get the song from the beginning out of my head! I watch Eastenders because it helps me understand normal people! (I'am Autistic Its a Form Of Disability To Do With The Brain) So Yeah thats why I watch it & Its also a Habbit! Once you watch one you have to watch another & so on! Now I'm gonna be excited all Weekend now! :( ALSO I WANNA KNOW WHEN GOW & DAWN COME BACK! I MISS GOOD OLD GARRY TO! I think Garry is funny! lol I cant wait to see Garry's & Dawns Face if THEY do come back & find out Bradleys Dead & Stacey In Prison! (I Hope Anyway!) I Always thought she really did love him! No Secrets! Like at there Marriage! Which was Short Lived For Bradley! This is gonna punch my brain all over the Place! Why would Bradley do such an Insane & Stupid thing! I wouldnt Jump off the top off the top of a Building EVEN if there was a Cop Behind me! I have done in games but then again thats just games! :P Man! All those Memories of our Ex-Bradley but WILL ALWAYS BE OUR BRADLEY! Even though he Sleeps in the Grave! Funny if he dragged the Cop down with him! Bradley Killed Him From The Grave! :D But then he would of been a Murderer! I feel like I could go on for Days! I didnt think it was A Mitchell! BUT THAT BECCA!!!! MAN I WANTED HER TO NEVER APPEAR IN THE FIRST PLACE! SHE KILLED BRADLEY KINDA AS WELL! IF SHE NEVER BECAME SO JEALOUS & GRASSED HIM UP! BRADLEY WOULD OF BEEN ALIVE & WELL! :( Marsden was jumping on the Gun abit to soon there! Abit Impaitent she was! She could be Blamed over his Death to but she just went with the Info so she has 5% of Bradleys Destiny to the end of a long Road! You know what! I'm gonna Shut up! lol! I'm saying to much! To much curiosity!
