Apologies if another thread has already been started I can't find it
I have some questions about Michelle,s pregnancy ,she's adament it's Grants baby ,but didn't she have a thing with her Boss ? And didn't Geoff stay over how can she be certain ???
iamtheoneandonlyyy · 28/11/2020 16:13
And she got went from shags to tests very quickly.
I'm also understanding why cindy cheats on Ian so much
x2boys · 28/11/2020 16:51
Yes even allowing for the fact we go through weeks and months quickly ,it did seem very quick to find out she was pregnant
And yes you can't blame Cindy!

Proper end of an era with Michelle gone

Had to google what happened with Kathy's pregnancy. My memory is really that rubbish 🤣🤣
Tunnocksmallow · 29/11/2020 23:33
Pauline was just vile really Christ.
And I’m sure I can’t remember Ian being so awful, no wonder cindy hired the hitman!
x2boys · 29/11/2020 23:43
I think Pauline got worse as she got older ,yes you really can't blame Cindy ,Ian,s self importance would drive anyone to murder 😂

Ha! I had to look it up too, despite the fact the result of the pregnancy is literally at the centre of current Eastenders plots.
I wonder if Kathy knows she's pregnant with a shapeshifter who changes heads every 3-5 years?
Tunnocksmallow · 01/12/2020 14:35
Tbh I’m surprised Martin never ended up doing a ‘Bobby’ on Pauline, the way she treated him and Arthur
And poor Nigel, one of life’s good guys, who constantly got shit on
x2boys · 02/12/2020 12:26
Poor Nigel,but if I was Clare's Grandmother I'm not sure I would be wanting him to be bringing her up ,he's not exactly a great role model spending all of his time in the pub!

When I was a kid I always thought Sam had a cold...she looks really young
Limer · 04/12/2020 20:33
Just caught up! All this is definitely new to me! I'm actually really enjoying the new stuff, I got a bit bored with knowing more or less what was going to happen.
OMG Ian's moustache!!!
Had to laugh at the interest rates on the wall in the bank - loans at 18.9% those were the days
And it'll be Christmas again next week
Serendipity26 · 12/12/2020 19:22
Cindy literally spends her whole life sighing on every sentence. Mind you, married to Ian can’t blame her!
Limer · 13/12/2020 09:55
I feel sorry for Ian - he does work very hard and desperately tries to please Cindy, but nothing he does is good enough for her. That moustache is probably the final nail in the coffin though
RIP Barbara Windsor I saw Daniella Westbrook interviewed on the news - OMG I can't believe it's the same woman as fresh-faced young Sam

I started watching catch up from 07/12 but DH started whittering about something so I got distracted ..
This week on Eastenders Classic will be Christmas (again) , I think on Wednesday .
I can vaguely remember the Arthur /Missing Money Plot from back in the day .
Limer · 14/12/2020 19:39
Wow – Pauline talking to a very young Lord Grantham from Downton Abbey (Hugh Bonneville) as Martin’s headteacher!
Limer · 15/12/2020 18:34
And today a young Linda Bassett (Nurse Crane in Call the Midwife) as Frank’s mental health nurse talking to Pat!
iamtheoneandonlyyy · 15/12/2020 20:47
I felt so bad for felix!
x2boys · 17/12/2020 18:08
Yes poor Felix ,Well Xmas was,nt exactly Jolly was it?
iamtheoneandonlyyy · 18/12/2020 17:07
Franks a tosser but Mike Reid was so amazing playing him.
SevenTiers · 18/12/2020 19:48
I know he's a total player, but my word how much do I fancy David Wicks!
I remember the total pisstakes re Ian's moustache, it is so funny seeing it again
And so sad knowing it is the beginning of the end for poor Arthur
Limer · 18/12/2020 20:56
I love watching the Christmas episodes when it really is Christmas!
I thought Alan & Carol Jackson were already married, because they're both called Jackson, and so are all of the children?
Rolf Harris record playing at Stephen's birthday party
Kathy's over 5 months pregnant and she still hasn't stuffed the cushion up her jumper!
x2boys · 18/12/2020 21:38
I know I look more pregnant than Kathy and my youngest is ten years old 🤣
x2boys · 18/12/2020 21:40
All the kids and carol took Alan's name when they got together and cute little Billie is Alan's biological son anyway .
iamtheoneandonlyyy · 20/12/2020 18:40
I can't remember what happens with Arthur but it's a very frustrating storyline
And yes to pp, David wicks is a bit of alright .
Limer · 21/12/2020 12:55
I guess it was probably done to make it easier for the viewers to follow who's related to who!
When I was at primary school in the 1970s there was a family with 4 children, all with different fathers, and their surnames were repeatedly changed to match the mum's current boyfriend. The mum would just phone up the school and ask that her children's names were changed on the register. Very confusing for all!
