Episode 4459

Radio Times
Review by:
Jane Rackham

Ben Mitchell has literally got away with murder over the past months (while, to be brutal, actor Joshua Pascoe who now plays him has got away with it metaphorically). But with Pascoe leaving the series when his contract ends, it means Ben must soon get his just deserts and we won’t have to put up with the unpleasant mini-Mitchell any more.

That moment gets a little closer when Jay takes a look under Ben’s bed (always a risky thing to do - teenagers can be shockingly unhygienic). What he finds there horrifies him - and proves once and for all that Ben is not only vengeful, disturbed and violent, but also a bit dim.

About this programme

Jay lifts Ben's spirits by racing the stock car with him - only to discover he has been hiding a secret that could have devastating consequences for both of them. Kat tries to reinvigorate her relationship with Alfie, while AJ scrapes together the money he owes Derek - but has a new problem to deal with when Zainab discovers he is in Walford.
