I dropped EE when Alice Branning showed up and Alfie and Roxy were starting something...

Looks like it got boring after that anyway... But good to know Derek's gone.. I hated him.. and not in a good way. He annoyed me so much.
Sad to hear that I missed both Christian and Zainab's exit. :( I loved both of them.

Yeah she is :( I think her last episode is this week or next. The whole show is mostly about Lauren's crap, and Max's new wife who sucks (Kirsty), and some Sharon/Phil stuff. 2011/early 2012 for me was the last time the show was any good.

HA Lauren's alcoholism is the most dragged out plot in the history of soaps. It's been going on FOREVER! I like a realistic storyline, but it's time to move on writers.. And yeah Max has a new wife who has huge lips and likes to wear ugly hats sometimes :tounge: She's awful.. just dreadful. They should have just brought back Vanessa (Max's girlfriend who wore all white all the time). At least she had some funny moments.

Yeah, I stopped watching somewhere in January. I can almost burn through a month in a shift on continuous play. Nearly finished march tonight.

Truthfully, I actually didn't find it bad. It was an interesting what-if before she leaves.

'EastEnders' executive producer Lorraine Newman leaving soap


EastEnders' executive producer Lorraine Newman has announced that she is leaving the soap after 16 months in charge.

Newman has been part of the BBC show since joining as a script secretary 23 years ago, rising through the ranks to take on the top job in 2012.



Lorraine Newman - EastEnders executive producer

Lorraine Newman


EastEnders' former series story producer Dominic Treadwell-Collins will be taking over as executive producer.

Revealing her decision, Newman said today (July 29): "I have loved every moment of my time at EastEnders, but it is finally time to leave Walford.

"Over the past 23 years, I have been involved in some of the best moments on British television, from 'Who Shot Phil?', to 'You Ain't My Mother!', to the 25th live anniversary episode and in the past year, the Olympic Torch episode has also been a proud highlight.

"Over the past year, I have also had the pleasure of planning and implementing the revival of many of the EastEnders clans who should always be at the heart of the show. I am confident that I am leaving the show in a stronger place and am sure that Dominic will continue to build upon this, taking the show to a new level.

"I am delighted to be joining BBC Drama Production as an executive producer and look forward to the new opportunities and projects this will bring."

I don't know about the replacement. 2007-2010 weren't really standout years.

Hopefully it's an improvement over what they've been doing this year.

She never did anything bad per se, but did she even have one must see storyline? Hopefully DTC will put some fire back into the show.

That's my thoughts. I've liked all of the characters she's brought in, I liked the new focus on the Butchers and Beales and that she was bringing Michael French back, but everything ultimately was very dry and bland.

Who's Kat Fucking, Max's secret wife were attempts at the big stories but they both basically sucked. Sharon/Phil/Jack has been snoozeville. Liam's gang story was OK but they never explained why he suddenly hated Bianca or why he was then over that hatrid. I liked Joey and Lauren. I don't like Denise and Ian. And she gets major props from me for everything related to Lola.

The show was a snoozeville under her. I tried getting back into it several times (there are other reasons too, like laziness lol). I'm kind of missing it at the moment for some reason.

I think with time she would have gotten better. She was left alot of problems by Kirkwood. His bad stories, abrupt departure, and letting most of the A-list take 6 months to a year off. She refocused back to the core families it needed to be focused on but the stories were soft. The sounds of her upcoming new characters and the car crash stunt sound more like old-EastEnders.

Kinda OT but I generally find Bryan Kirkwood to be very overrated, and while he had a great first year he did alot of damage by the time he was out. He's hailed as the second coming for Hollyoaks, and fair enough his first stint was great, but so much of what he's been given the credit for now is work mostly done by Emma Smithwick.

So who here is still watching the show? I'm contemplating watching again for David's return.

i'm planning to get back in with the producer change and David's return. I figured I'd start around June since that's where a number of new characters began and Tanya left.
