3'of those questions have been answered. They are discussed on other thread but I won't post specifically in case you didn't read until you've watched!

Blondes, the only one at Steven 's funeral was Abi.
It was a disaster.

EnidButton Sat 23-Sep-17 17:57:55

Marking my place in anticipation of things improving soon.

The80sweregreat Sat 23-Sep-17 18:05:29

Enid, they might improve soon - the new producer must have taken over by now.
i have a feeling that once they have used Max for their own ends, the WB crowd will soon get rid of him.

EnidButton Sat 23-Sep-17 18:20:14

80's I think he took over straight away but filming is 12 weeks ish ahead of the episodes on screen so I think we're very close to seeing them.

dingdongdigeridoo Sat 23-Sep-17 18:20:34

Was Billy at the funeral when Abi gave her 'he was my everything' speech? If so, won't he mention to Lauren about the weird shit she's been saying?

youarenotkiddingme Sat 23-Sep-17 18:24:49

Yes filming is 2-3 months in advance. But don't forget they will have to change the scripts and re write the material he produced so some of his storylines will have to be played on - whilst trying to salvage what they can from them and rewrite where he was going!
Hopefully to make up for it Halloween and Christmas specials will be extra amazing!

EnidButton Sat 23-Sep-17 18:33:01

You True. There's an awful lot of debris to clear up. Literally and figuratively. But hopefully the dialogue and editing will quickly improve. I've no idea if he'll be any good but surely he can't be worse.

The80sweregreat Sat 23-Sep-17 18:35:38

No, billy was scoffing the sausage rolls in the vic. two colleagues were at the funeral with the priest with Abi. One person at your funeral. Sad really.

Iโ€™m loving the return of W-B. We needed a credible baddie and Iโ€™m looking forward to seeing what unfolds over the coming weeks.

BadHairDay0 Sat 23-Sep-17 19:04:36

Love the idea of Clark Kent saving the day which someone mentioned previously. I now have visions of him spinning in a phone booth and emerging with a cape!

The80sweregreat Sat 23-Sep-17 19:09:06

I am predicting a Carter homeless christmas special. Lindas frown will grow by the day.

Blondeshavemorefun Sat 23-Sep-17 20:46:44

Oh. Have missed lots ๐Ÿ™€

Only about at funeral

Bloody holidays ๐Ÿ˜‰

Look forward to catching up

dingdongdigeridoo Sat 23-Sep-17 20:49:21

Linda will be living on the street like a Victorian urchin, yet still have her giant bun hair.

HateSummer Sat 23-Sep-17 20:51:27

Marking my place. EE needs some new gangsters. Will look forward to WB and hopefully no more mention of bins once new prod takes over.

iknowimcoming Sat 23-Sep-17 21:08:36

Will Jane survive and does anyone care - we don't see her at the hospital anymore so maybe holby have asked for their set back before eastenders wear out the hospital bed?

HateSummer Sat 23-Sep-17 21:27:00

I think Jane will recover but this will coincide with Bobby's return and then she can get ready for some kind trauma again.

The80sweregreat Sat 23-Sep-17 21:28:08

The WB crowd wont give a shit about the bins or food banks or the community centre shutting down.
They just want the carters out on their ear.

youarenotkiddingme Sat 23-Sep-17 21:37:44

Maybe Holby have asked for their set back grin

The80sweregreat Sat 23-Sep-17 21:40:33

Nobody seems to care about jane do they? Its true.

Evening all! So you want me to try and explain the carter/weyland lease hold fiasco.

Pft. That's about all I can say on that.

Ok so in real life yes actually the tenant is responsible for repairs to the building. I've had one lease hold. It kind of went like this.

We paid something like ยฃ25k to take the lease. There are courses and application fees and many other pointless things to go through before that which were a couple of thousands each. Then we paid rent, ours was ยฃ550 a week. And you are tied on your beer prices. (Free trade means you can buy any beer from any one and negotiate discounts) a tied lease means they set the price which is always vastly more than free trade. Which has a knock on affect on your selling price and profit and also control which brands you sell.

You also have to use their accountants and their stock takers, again at higher than normal price. And they got special equipment to the cellar to track what you put through so no fiddling. You also take the building as is, and are responsible for any and all repairs and improvements. When we took ours we did loads. Initially about ยฃ75k on decorating, new toilets and sound and Dj stuff. Then after a while we put in a kitchen and upgraded the second floor.

We did a structural survey as you would if you were buying the building because we knew we were also liable to any big jobs such as roof etc.

When we gave back the lease we sold the kitchen and sound stuff but the money spent on the decorating and building etc was gone. It's all part of the maintaining the building thingamybob.

So that's real life. Oh I should also point out that other than the above stipulations we were left to run it as we wanted. No Fi popping in to criticise the rota or any promotions etc (as long as they fall within the approved products etc).

I have no idea how they are reckoning the carter situation. I have no idea how you can sell an existing free trade pub into a lease business. I don't even know if you can.

Well I suppose you can. There's a local fella who's a big shot, who has been asking to buy my free pub for years and he would lease it back to me. But for that he would pay going market rate for the business. So we are taking big money. He would buy the property and the 'business'. Then I suppose set me up on a lease deal similar to as I described above.

So if that is what the carters did, they should have received hundreds of thousands if not over a million for a building that size in London plus whatever the business is worth. Which they don't appear to have done. They appear to have sold the lot for a few thousand? Maybe a few tens of thousands? ....... but certainly no where near a realistic amount! And then we are back to the pft! It makes no sense!!!

And the near permanent residence of Fi is unexplainable. Once you're all set up and the deal is done, the paperwork goes out to the accountant, the stock taker comes once a month and you see the 'Fi' person every couple of Months to touch base and discuss new products etc. That's it.

The80sweregreat Sat 23-Sep-17 21:58:21

Oreo, thank you. The pub trade sounds very complicated.

MyGuideJools Sat 23-Sep-17 22:30:29
