EastEnders

Episode 4829

Radio Times
Review by:
Jane Rackham

The plan to “reinvigorate” EastEnders’ older generation by introducing nuanced actors such as Timothy West and Annette Badland to bring “a real touch of Dickensian magic” to the place really gets under way this week. Tina insists that Stan (West) comes to live with the whole Carter clan at the Vic. But, as we’ve already seen, the curmudgeonly former Billingsgate fishmonger is no cardigan-wearing softie and it takes no time at all before he’s manipulating the family from the comfort of his armchair.

Elsewhere, Shabnam hatches a plan to keep Jane away from Masood and Lauren is persuaded to celebrate her birthday even though she’s suspicious about Lucy’s relationship with Jake.

About this programme

Mick's family quiz him about his attack and while he manages to convince them it was just kids, he still wants answers himself and goes to visit his dad Stan in hospital. Denise isn't sure whether she can trust Ian and Jane, so to put her mind at rest she arranges a family dinner, with help from Shabnam - unaware the latter is plotting against her. Lauren's suspicions about Lucy and Jake get the better of her when she is found searching through her friend's phone, while Linda's plan to make Johnny a mole begins to take shape, only for him to have second thoughts when he bonds with Sharon.
