Christmas 2014 looks set to be truly dramatic in Walford with a car smash through the Square and Mick Carter losing his temper as he trashes the Queen Vic.
Secrets will be spilled as the Carter family implodes, while Emma Summerhayes reckons that she’s at last identified Lucy Beale’s killer. And that’s not forgetting the intrigue at the Cotton house as Ronnie and Nick go head to head.
Star Danny Dyer has spoken recently to Radio Times about justice being served this Christmas when his character Mick Carter finds about wife Linda’s rape.
Says the actor: “The audience will know that the bomb is going to go off – but they’ll be asking themselves: ‘How big is that bomb going to be?’ And let me tell you, it’s nuclear.
“I’ll put the question out there: how would you react if someone you loved was raped in your home by a person you’d been looking in the eye for the past three months? Whether you’re a violent man or avoid violence at all costs, you are going to go insane. And I take insanity to a new level. Justice is served. Beautifully. And I get to show every bit of range I’ve got as an actor.”
