Deano Loses The Plot!

Hello and welcome to a slice of soap. Is it me or is EastEnders getting more depressing with every passing episode? So far this week we’ve seen the sad break up of Minty and Hazel, Gary on the receiving end of his best mate’s fists and, of course, we saw the return – for one episode only – of Deano Wicks. He’d just been released from prison but he’s understandably not jumping for joy…depressing, depressing depressing!

I really feel sorry for the Wicks family cos they’ve had a raw deal on EastEnders lately, haven’t they? 
Not content with killing off poor old ‘Parklife’ Phil on New Year’s Eve, the scriptwriters have turned Deano into a mentally disturbed, vodka swigging ex con.

Prison life isn’t easy – OK EastEnders writers, we get it. However anyone would’ve thought he’d just done a twenty-year stint in Alcatraz the way they had him carrying on. Every time I watch The Wright Stuff when they chat about the penal service, someone rings in to say that prison is easier than the army! Oh well, I suppose he’s feeling guilty about his dad etc. 

But my biggest criticism of Enders at the moment is the depressing storylines. It’s almost got to the point where I find myself turning over to the Ten O’clock news to get cheered up.

Dot Branning’s 30-minute monologue to ill husband Jim was seen by 8.7m people. That was down compared to the 9.4m that had tuned in the week before. It was EastEnders’ worst Thursday viewing share since November 2007. Where did the million viewers go? 

Anyway, if you’re hoping EastEnders will be more upbeat, maybe the return of much-loved characters Rickaaaaaay and Biancaaaaaaaa will fit the bill. It could be a sign of better things to come from Albert Square if Sid Owen and Patsy Palmer stick around. You get the impression that Sid Owen will – he’s already been in out and out of the soap a couple of times. 

Gus Watch.
Just in case you didn’t know, Gus Smith makes a special appearance on EastEnders this evening. You remember Gus, don’t you? Watch and enjoy as Dot Branning sets our hero up with new girl Clare. I hate to say it, but Dot is clearly losing her marbles. Clare is obviously waaaaay out of Gus’ league. Still, who knows…he may even treat us to some poetry. If you don’t see him tonight – catch the omnibus.

    Eastenders is pretty crap at the moment. Give Linda Henry a bigger story line she is such a good actress, she is wasted on the one or two scenes she get\’s.
