In Walford, E20, a legend they tell
Of a cruel and villainous man, name of Del.
A man who was vile, a man who was mean
A more loathsome creature, there never had been.
Ruthless, vindictive, his victims were many
But friends or supporters? He hardly had any.
His browbeaten fam'ly, obliged to stand by him.
Were growing fed up of his cheatin' and lyin'
An unwanted present you'd love to give back,
If only you could give a big brother the sack.

So, as Bridge Street market twinkled its lights
And Wintery days turned to Wintery nights,
This ill wind that blew through old Walford town
That huffed and puffed, tried to blow houses down
Til now uncontested... Until forecasts showed
That all of a sudden a  counter wind blowed
Along Turpin Road, through the Arches, the Vic
Round Arthurs Bench it was gaining speed quick
Now what could this mean? Could we be right?
That this wind was a-turning and holding on tight
To the prospect of stopping this scurrilous foe?
And if this was true, does anyone know
Who it could be?
Well we have made it clear
It really could be anyone around here. 

Phil Mitchell, the guvnor, his status contested.
Michael who Derek had always detested.
Lucy he blackmailed - vindictive and callous,
And what of the way that he's treated his Alice?
Anthony Moon who he drove out of town.
Alfie a good man, who won't be kept down.
Joey and Lauren, now sadly parted. Del stamped on their love
Leaving both broken hearted.
He made Tanya lie. Pinned her up 'gainst a wall.
Threatened her, made her cry, and worst of all -
Keep a secret from Max, who - let's face it - is king,
Of deceptions and lies. Del's been blackmailing him.
Or could it be how, to stir controversy,
He let slip about Sharon's drug dependency?
And revealed to her son that his father was knifed
A shock that he'll carry the rest of his life.
Jack's patience frayed, was this the last straw?
He should have been Max's best man after all.
Then there's David, still searching, there's Carol alone,
A letter intercepted, never to be shown?
But it’s not just the living, who could be seeing red
What of Pat Evans, taunted 'pon on her death bed?
The ghost of Heather Trott? There are yet hundreds more...
But what force of fate will come settle the score?
You'll have to keep watching to find out what's in store...

    What I don't get is why Alice is saying "I have no one" now that Derek is dead? She does have her mother, doesn't she? I wonder why Joey is all protective towards their mother and Alice just doesn't want to know her and keeps forgiving Derek for all the horrible things he does like he is the best Dad in the world? Is their mother even worse than Derek? Also, Max is ridiculous. He started having problems with Tanya because he felt the need to cheat on her with some tart (who was his son's girlfriend and then wife as well!), and then he thought that the only way to get together with his wife was to marry another tart?

    Sorry but the writers should be sacked! Firstly we have this pathetic love affair showing that Derek whisks Kat away and she has a cosey dinner with him feeling guilt as Alfie moves on. What right human being would think Derek and Kat can be a cosey happy couple directly after the affair? Secondly what is this rubbish about oh who has it in for Derek? Will someone kill him? He has a heart attack in the middle of the street so nobody killed him? What a pathetic waste of time. Clearly the writers were wanting home for xmas dinner and after the choice of anvil on his head,eating earthquake pills, heart attack or fell of a cliff like Cayote they clearly went with heart attack. Ohh just want to make viewers tense and watch show...oh rating love us. PATHETIC!

    Streuth, I'd forgotten how Derek has really fouled on everyone. Well reported and wonderfully depicted - thanks! :-)

    Well I watched in dis-belief as DEREK was uncovered as Kat's secret lover, are the Eastenders writers having a joke? I can't imagine Kat going near Derek with someone else's let alone her own, it's farcical. He came into the programme and we were supposed to believe everyone was frightened of him, what a joke, he's about as frightening as a blob of jelly. He's really spoilt the programme for me and the sooner someone kills him the sooner we can get back to a more believable story line and I can start watching it properly again. I never used to miss an episode
