The Better it Gets
14 March 2015 | by See all my reviews

EastEnders from 2010 (when Kirkwood arrived) to 2013 (when Newman departed) was abysmal. A show which I knew if I missed an episode it wouldn't matter, as I probably wouldn't have missed much. The story lines were unrealistic, and the drama was horrific. No serious issues were covered whatsoever.

Now, the latest executive producer (Treadwell-Collins (2013 - )) has completely transformed the show. EastEnders thrives in the ratings at the moment, touches on serious, touching topical issues and portrays them as realistically as possible and provides an excellent balance of drama and laughter, of which the drama is unmissable. Every cliffhanger leaves you wanting more. The only downside is EastEnders is usually replaced with football, so you may have to wait an extra day to watch the programme, but nevertheless it's most certainly worth the wait for the quality episodes. If you ever consider watching EastEnders, then now's the time to tune in peeps!
