It's just an excuse to have another storyline full of gormless Mick duff-duffs.

I mean, in their defence the failmy that lives in The Vic are usually the shows leading players. But I know what you mean. The show is literally just mulling over until the new producer starts but this Mel storyline with her ex has supposedly been building up since she returned - indeed, it was the storyline pitched to Tamzin when they asked her back. So we might see some form of improvement now it’s started.

I have every faith that Kate Oates will get me watching this again. She's great at "event" television and story climaxes.

It’s episodes like Friday’s. Surely Linda being arrested would’ve made more sense as the final scene as opposed to Dyer’s mug.

Spoiler:
Ruby Allen back next week. Back to do a rape storyline exploring the issue of consent. The rape will not play out on screen like Linda’s.


Interesting choice of character... someone we know but don’t really know, leaving the audience free to not get emotionally involved based on existing character knowledge - but to have enough history with so that the story lands.

I have no idea how this ties into the story but Mick...

Spoiler:
Danny Dyer on the west end for a few weeks:

Maybe he’s inside until trial? Or a break once the storyline is all over? I hate the idea of anything dragging out that long...

Let me summarise what you’ve missed:

The Carters have drama with Stuart.

Seriously, if I wasn’t ocd with shows and not missing an episode, I’d give up.
