EastEnders is back where it should be. It’s the subject of much exciting chat with storylines that viewers have really got their teeth into. Tuesday night saw soap veteran Adam Woodyatt put in a stunning performance as Ian Beale discovered Daughter Lucy had been found dead on Walford common. In a storyline that showrunner Dominic Treadwell-Collins has promised will shock and keep viewers guessing, the whodunnit story is expected to run till the soap’s 30th anniversary in February next year.
I spoke to writer of last night’s ratings winning episode James Payne about tackling such a difficult story and why the story is important to the future of the soap.
EastEnders continues Thursday at 7.30pm on BBC ONE.
