    Aw, I thought they were good. They’d have been better if the girl who plays Amy could actually act though.

    I liked that it highlighted a need for Amy to have a mother figure, and a need for Mel to have someone to look after. Maybe there’s hope for her and Jack after all.

    Corrie has been pretty dire lately but Emmerdale has largely been consistent. Emmerdale wasn’t even nominated though!

    I agree. It was nice to see Mel soften a bit.

    Emmerdale I agree has been most consistent

    So is that Kathy selling her necklace to buy a gay bar?

    Icon Kathy.

    Though I’m enjoying the actor, I’m not enjoying the character of Ben this time round (yet).

    Me either. Harry Reid’s Ben was the perfect combination of a Mitchell with a conscience.

    Where did Ben get that necklace for Kathy? Can’t remember.

    Cringing hard at “Taylorball”. Is there any scene that takes place in that part that isn’t embarrassing?

    Not Jack and Denise? It amazes me how EE throws people together who’ve lived next to each other for ten years and only then suddenly realise they’re attracted to each other.

    Ben is very Del-Boy-trying-to-be-gangster. He can’t even pull off the Del Boy part, never mind gangster

    I like the intention of trying to make him ‘more Mitchell’ - but he doesn’t have the brains to be Phil or the brawn to be Grant. He’s a bit of a one trick pony at the moment so let’s see what happens... it’s early days.

    I like Kat and Kush as characters and their scenes have been fun... but I don’t think it works. I know he likes an older woman but there no future in it is there.

    I think it’s a shame they’ve killed of Dinah so soon - there’s not much of an impact when it’s a character we don’t really know. I think it would have been interesting to have had her in it for a year and leading towards the same end. But in terms of story I think they missed a trick here.

    So Max is plotting to get Mel. Is this revenge on Jack for sleeping with Rainie?

    I’m here for anything that gives Denise screen time, Diane and Scott played off each other great in The Bill. But Jack and Chelsea were dating for a while back in the day so I’m sure it’s a bit weird. Haven’t watched the episode yet though.

    It was the other way around, about 8 years ago.

    Compared to Denise, no one has aged well.

    I think Jack still looks good personally.

    It's weird to think how long some of the characters have been on the show. These are all the characters that have been onscreen for 10 years or longer (without taking any extensive breaks):

    Ian Beale (1985-)
    Billy Mitchell (1998- )
    Patrick Trueman (2001-)
    Denise Fox (2006-)
    Max Branning (2006-)
    Shirley Carter (2006-)
    Jay Brown (2006-)
    Whitney Dean (2008- )
    Kim Fox (2009-)

    Amended, you're right - she only appeared in 15 episodes between 2014 and 2017, before becoming a regular again in early 2018.

    And most of these are underused and sidelined! Kim is one dimensional, Whitney is a bit-part, Jay is one of the most likeable characters in the show yet they don’t let him take front and centre.

    Technically Ian’s on an extensive break now...?

    My version of extensive break is a year or more. Kim and Denise have both had time off for maternity leave, and Shona was suspended for a few months.

    Out of all those characters, Max is the most tiresome IMO. Jake Wood just looks bored all the time.

    Max should’ve been killed off in the roof fall instead of Abi.

    Abi had SO much potential to be the next Janine. I’d have loved to have her around now as single mother, especially as Ben’s back - could totally imagine her being involved in his dodgy dealings.

    I'd take Abi over Lexi, plus Abi's darkside was hilarious. I'm still pissed they killed her off.
