EastEnders announce big new storyline

by | Jun 18, 2014 | All, TV News

EastEnders character Patrick Trueman is to face the biggest challenge of his life when he has a major stroke. The plot will follow Patrick’s journey from the initial signs that something is wrong to the stroke, and its severe consequences. The outcome, and the effect it has on both Patrick and those closest to him, will be explored throughout the rest of the year. 

Rudolph Walker, who plays Patrick, said:“This is a truly important storyline as strokes affect so many different people, in so many different ways. We are all working very hard on this and I really hope Patrick’s story can help raise awareness.”

Dominic Treadwell-Collins, Executive Producer on EastEnders said:“This is an important storyline in so many ways. Not only does it give the wonderful Rudolph Walker the chance to shine, but we also hope it will raise awareness of the warning signs that come before a stroke and the difficulties of caring for the elderly in 21st century Britain”.

EastEnders continues Tonight at 7.00pm on BBC ONE.
