Storyline

Set in the East End of London, the show focuses on the tensions between love and family with stories ranging from hard-hitting social issues, to personal, human tragedies. And there's plenty of funny moments too. Classic characters old and new across thousands of episodes have shared a drink in The Queen Vic, shed tears of despair or joy, sat on Arthur's bench in the Square - and at some point or other they probably crossed paths with Ian Beale.

Trivia

On the day of broadcast of the 2010 live episode, it was reported that EastEnders producers may have had to re-write the episode or run a pre-recorded rehearsal tape rather than go ahead with the live transmission, as Lacey Turner, who played Stacey Slater, was suffering from the flu and was unable to speak. In the event, Turner recovered enough to appear, though was given permission to whisper her lines if necessary. In the episode though she was able to deliver her dialogue as planned. See more »

Quotes

Dot: So they killed him then, because he didn't fit in?
Wake Guest: Dot, I'm not saying that.
Dot: Yes you are, you've said it very well. He was always a help to me. If you had no respect for him while he was alive, the least you can do is have respect for him now he's dead!

The best and most realistic soap you're not watching
7 January 2003 | by Shazzer30See all my reviews

BBC America runs an omnibus once a week of this popular British soap opera. If you don't get BBC America, call your cable company and ask about digital cable- it's generally only about 10 bucks more a month than regular cable, and you get more channels. That said, I was hooked from the first time I watched "EastEnders" a little over a year ago. It took a few episodes and a book ("EastEnders Who's Who", available from amazon.com)for me to catch on, but it was worth it. These characters, although sometimes predictable (cheating exes, guy gets fatal brain tumor, etc,)are more realistic than any lame-o American soap- maybe because they don't sport red sequinned dresses and 5 pounds of make-up at 10:30 a.m. on a Tuesday. There's a chock full of good stuff happening in Albert Square- call you cable operator and get the Beeb if, for nothing else, this fabulous show!
