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 »

Nobody's talking about it
13 February 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Eastenders used to claim that it was the soap that everyone was talking about but in recent times they're only talking about how bad it's decline has been. Poor characters, wooden dialogue and ridiculous plots have seen it's rivals overtake it in terms of the public's affections...and awards.

To be fair to the new executive producer, changes seem to be being made and some of the weaker characters are being pointed towards the door (or black cab) with some a bit unfairly. Old faces are being re-introduced and some shock value being pushed more. Even Danny Dyer has made a positive impact so who knows, soon the soap may reclaim it's place at the top. For me though there is still a long way to go.
