Is it just me or was the acting, especially during the cage siege dreadful? I almost switched off.

Yip, completely agree! Whoever thought bringing Nick back was a good idea - his acting is appalling! But then, so was everyone else's especially Abi!

John Altman is the worst actor in the history of the world. Fact.

Dotty is crap too - and I realise this is probably tantamount to blasphemy, but I think Dot Cotton is highly overrated at the best of times.

I agree. Nick, little dotty, Abi (Dawn is pretty bad too I think). I cringed.

why were they all so scared in the cafe - he only had a stick, hardly the type of weapon that can main and kill ten people all at once! and why did nobody out side think to break the window? not exactly rocket science.

LadyOfWaffle Wed 03-Jun-09 12:23:32

Oh jeez, whoever plays Nick is just the worst actor ever - seriously. I can never work out if he is supposed to be like that, because it's so bad it cannot be allowed!

McDreamy Wed 03-Jun-09 12:24:12

It was appalling acting! Just dreadful.

LadyOfWaffle Wed 03-Jun-09 12:24:48

And they were so slow getting out! I was like "run!" Argh

Turbomouth Wed 03-Jun-09 12:25:38

I missed it, and it sounds like it was a good move!

Trikken Wed 03-Jun-09 12:29:45

Is bradley dead or hurt? I hope he isnt dead cos Bradders is one of the best.

MumtoCharlieandLola Wed 03-Jun-09 12:35:17

Quick hijack

<<Spots LOWs name and stops to wave>>

To everyone else, sorry don't watch it, its too nasty shock


Fimbo Wed 03-Jun-09 12:36:48

Oh good not just me then that thought "the siege" was crap.

Bradders survives but has glass in his eyes.

ginnny Wed 03-Jun-09 12:39:16

I wish Abi had been in the cafe when it went up. Can't stand her - horrible brat!
I'm pretty sure they have already run the storyline where Nick tries to poison Dot / make out she's senile / pretend she has a grand-daughter - or is it deja vu???
Its crap and I'm usually a big fan.

Trikken Wed 03-Jun-09 12:39:45

thanks, I did think he looked like he had done something nasty to the right one.

PuppyMonkey Wed 03-Jun-09 12:40:11

Fimbo, he got off quite lightly then, considering he was at the centre of a huge gas explosion. Lucky or what? grin

nancy75 Wed 03-Jun-09 12:42:12

ginny, they have done the nick poisons mad dot story before, i remember it too! i think he also turned up with a baby that he said was his but wasn't?

Fimbo Wed 03-Jun-09 12:46:07

What's Ian going to say????? grin

The scene with Shirley, having the drinking party was mad and unbelievable too.

nancy75 Wed 03-Jun-09 12:50:09

i think they redo the cafe in the style of a 50's american diner - just rubbish!

Fimbo Wed 03-Jun-09 13:34:46

Oh no, they will put Jane on rollerskates with fake boobs next.

Wasn't it awful, almost pantomime, can't understand why Eastenders wins all the TV awards year after year, it's gone so downhill IMO

princessmel Thu 04-Jun-09 10:26:03

Dh and I were shouting at the tv
'he's only got a stick, not a gun!'

Why didn't the people outside call 999 earlier? Why didn't they smash the window?

I thought Dotty was ok though. I was pleased she told the truth.

Blondeshavemorefun Thu 04-Jun-09 17:18:31

complete waste of 30mins tv time imho

bigchris Thu 04-Jun-09 17:20:24


read in a mag that Bradley is in hospital with his dad by his bedside willing him to make it through

Blondeshavemorefun Thu 04-Jun-09 17:33:03
