Episode 4841

Radio Times
Review by:
David Brown

We’re currently in the privileged yet horrible position of knowing full well what happened to Lucy while her nearest and dearest remain unaware. So an oblivious Ian is seen trying to get hold of his daughter, while Jane is trying to organise a get-together at the restaurant. Of course, soaps being soaps, there has to be as much melodrama wrung from a situation as possible. So don’t expect the police to come knocking until a good way into the episode.

The Beales, though, aren’t the only family getting a share of the action – the brilliant Carters (not a weak link in that line-up) are hosting a pool competition at the Vic and it’s all hands on deck.

About this programme

Ian is desperate to make amends with Peter for his comments, so Jane persuades him to arrange a family get-together at the restaurant - oblivious to what has happened to Lucy. The police eventually do come calling though, and Ian hears the words no parent ever wants to be told. Meanwhile, Bianca encourages Whitney to be more confident and stand up to Lee - although the stall-holder fails to follow her own advice when Terry's ex Nikki arrives in the Vic - and Aunt Babe has a warning for Stan after learning of his arrest.
