Trivia

In 1993, the show's theme tune was updated to a Jazzy version, first heard on 11 May 1993. However, it proved very unpopular with the viewers and was replaced with a remix of the original theme tune only 11 months later, from 11 April 1994. See more »

S***-awful tripe.
8 May 2004 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

How on earth can the BBC actually suggest that EastEnders is the best programme on TV!?! It is the most badly acted, overrated and quite frankly dreadful load of crap on our screens. No wonder it's been cancelled in America. Nothing but misery, deaths and depression acted out by a group of talentless Londoners who could not act for love nor money. What sort of programme is it that has violence and death taking place at Christmas time? I really don't know what the rest of the world must think of the UK when they watch this. They must think that Britain are all depressed lay-abouts. It is also particularly disturbing to see a programme this bad nominated for every award possible. A big waste of time on a weekday night. If you have any sense you'll agree.
