Gone Down Hill
15 June 2015 | by (England) – See all my reviews

Eastenders really is in a bad state since Dominic Treadwell-Collins took over, although I do admit he did fine for a little while bringing the show back from a low state, but at this moment I feel it's the worst it's ever been.

Poor castings who cannot act and are solely based on their looks and are usually male and topless within a week, a lot of the better actors and actresses underused and then axed which is disgusting and those who can't act given more scenes.

Terrible and overrun stories in where we are forced to feel sympathetic to characters such as rapists who get no comeuppance whilst also being shoved down our throats by their overbearing family the "Carters" in this case, which brings me to screen hogging, we get episodes even weeks of the same characters going over and over the same subject there is no variety anymore.

Big changes are needed, DTC out and bring back the older iconic characters to the forefront and make better use of the younger cast who are capable of acting.
