BBC1 has given EastEnders fans its first proper look at this year’s Christmas episodes. As ever, there’s light and darkness in Walford this festive season as Mick and Linda celebrate a renewal of their vows, while Max plots revenge while standing out in the rain.
Then there’s newcomer Aidan Maguire who’s staring intently as his plan starts to take shape. Are events about to take a fresh twist?
Speaking recently to Radio Times about this year’s festive drama, EastEnders’s executive consultant John Yorke said: “There’s a lot of big drama, a lot of big heart and quite a few laughs besides.
“This Christmas is going to be a classic EastEnders Christmas – the time of year when EastEnders should be at its very best – and we can’t wait for people to see it.”
Watch the promo below. Beneath that, there’s a 60-second rundown of all next week’s drama on EastEnders, as well as our exclusive Week in Walford review show.
