    What's the betting Patrick will turn out to be the father of Tanya's long lost sister?  Do you not think Cora would have recognised him by now ?

    Oh well, this is EE.......

    As nightmusic said: "this is EE".

    Doubtless the Crayon Crew are readying themselves to unleash the retconned history of Patrick and Cora as the Romeo and Juliet of the post-war Walford era and if we're really lucky, we'll get a one-off special drama with younger actors that recreates this history that's just emerged. smiley - winkeye

    Plus if you play the music at theme music at the start and end, it has about the same emotional impact! Although, for the full experience you should probably have a clip of someone saying "FAAAAAAAAMMMMMMLLLLEEEEEEEEEEE!" and maybe Max trying to communicate but that can easily be simulated by trying to talk with marbles in your mouth.

    If the young Cora wore those Pontefract cakes on her eyes, I doubt she'd be able to tell the difference between Patrick and Boris Johnson.

    Yeah, in the real world if you've got money troubles at best they'll stay the same and most likely, they'll get worse... not so in Walford! They just evaporate if you ignore them!

    And yes, Walford has the ultimate in transferable skills - anyone can do pretty much any job without any training! Incredible, really. Actually, it's funny you mention market traders - it seems to me as if they've almost entirely phased them out now. Once upon a time that was maybe 1/4 to 1/3 of the Squares employment covered but I suppose with the Crayon Crew no longer even vaguely interested in having people appear to have jobs, there's no real point to the market.

    Re the suggestion that Patrick is Cora's former love - if no one on Eastenders can see that the actress playing Ava can not possibly be her daughter - anything else is possible! It really annoys me that a supposed mixed race character can be played by someone who so obviously isn't. Casting a mediterranean European with dark olive skin and black hair and very dark eyes as the biological offspring of white-blond ,blue-eyed, very pale skin Nordic parents would never happen.

    Interesting post but as we haven't (yet) seen Ava's father we can't comment. I've always thought that Syed was far too light to pass as Masood offspring, him and Tam as brothers is ridiculous. And how about the Branning brothers, only the crayon crew could try to pass them off as siblings.

    Yes Straw Donkey, I have mentioned this in the past. The three of them bear absolutely no resemblance to each other or to Jim.

    It makes me wonder if they are all the genuine offspring of Jim and his wife, or did she play away?? Was she ever in EE? If we could see what she looked like, would she display a mixture of the best/worst facial features of the Branning Bros?smiley - yikes

    Eh, I'm not one to get overly hung up on the resemblance (or lack thereof) when it comes to soaps - there are sufficient problems with Eastenders without having to worry about whether there is a familial similarity between those that are related.

    I think that Jim's wife was long dead by the time he came to Square and of course, Jim is now long forgotten because when your father is elderly and infirm you don't even talk about him - let alone go to visit him, especially when his wife has disappeared off to wherever Dorothy has gone on indefinite hiatus.

    Correct on both counts. The long lost daughter scenario was foreshadowed some time ago when Cora mentioned having another daughter but she neglected to mention to Tanya that said daughter hadn't actually died but rather had been adopted and she hadn't seen her.

    The Phantom Shagger has been unmentioned for some time because... this is Eastenders and the Crayon Crew knows the best way to build tension in a storyline is to regularly drop it for weeks at a time so people can lose interest and any momentum can be lost!

    I've come to a conclusion, when something bad happens at Emmerdale, such as Katie falling down the mine shaft, the emergency services in London are called out. And the same thing in Eastenders, it seems that the emergency services from Yorkshire are going to be attending the latest car crash.

    I predict Cora will become the latest in a long line of gazers into the middle distance with a blank expression. Perfected recently by Ronnie over a very long period of time, this expression, or lack of it, can be said by some to resemble acting without actually acting. With Cora's attempt at this 'method' acting, I suspect we shall have a lot of wide-eyed concerned looks coupled with pursed lips from everyone else.

    This was appalling. I cannot believe how bad it was. No one called 999 and they emerged with barely a scratch between them. However, my OH did see a guy in a doorway watching what was going on. Just a fraction of a second before he was obviously ushered off of the sceene.

    There was no suspense and was very poorly done as per usual.

    It is not like we didn’t have Ronnie’s long lost daughter storyline not that long ago, who her father forced her to give up and ended up being adopted. We need another one now. smiley - erm Yes it may be slightly different but still the general idea is similar.

    They've crashed into the pound shop in what must be the most deserted street in London, no one even looks out of a window and the emergency services are coming from Leeds.Even when the place explodes there isn't a soul comes out to see what the big bang was and to top it all Hoggy rides to the rescue.
    A dog in the road? It must have been the only animate thing around. 


    This was appalling. I cannot believe how bad it was. No one called 999 and they emerged with barely a scratch between them. However, my OH did see a guy in a doorway watching what was going on. Just a fraction of a second before he was obviously ushered off of the sceene.

    There was no suspense and was very poorly done as per usual. 


    Heartily agree with all this, looked more like a deserted industrial estate, no one running out to see what the racket was. No airbag on the car? A crash like that would've given Lauren traumatic chest and abdomen injuries, surely. Yes, she did double up a few times but then started throwing obstacles around the place like a trainee wonder woman. Joey stopping his rescue to answer the phone, that really made me laugh, I wouldn't have been surprised if he had tweeted his mates to ask how to put a fire out. And does Half Day Alice (or should that be Half Brain) call anybody right away? Of course she doesn't, that creates tension, dunnit? No it doesn't. What a waste of an expensive pyrotechnic stunt. Worse still, I do not understand how they survived, wood burns easily doesn't it?

    Cora is such a hard old battleaxe, it would be good to see her crumble. She refused to see Tanya's sife of things. Tanya was going to let it all alone, only because she left her purse that Ava reappeared.
