EastEnders always pulls out the stops at Halloween. Remember the macabre murder of menacing Michael Moon? Abi stalking Lauren while wearing a Doctor Who Weeping Angel mask? Or how about Nick Cotton’s spooky return from the dead?
Well, 2015 looks sets to up the stakes even further when the Mitchells find themselves trapped in a terrifying situation from which there is no escape.
As to what horrors viewers can expect to see, actor Harry Reid – who plays Ben Mitchell – says: “It’s bad, it’s really bad! It’s potentially life-changing for the Square and the Mitchell family – you will be shocked!”
And executive producer Dominic Treadwell-Collins adds: “Our Halloween episode kicks off a lot of big things. There’s lots of stuff for Sharon, for Phil, for Stacey and Martin. A lot of things are kickstarted in this episode.
“What you’ll see is that Kathy and Phil have both been given panic buttons and everyone thinks that Gavin has gone. But of course not!”
