Revealing mistake: Episode Aired 12th December. In the laundrette a shelf had fallen off the wall and Dot Cotton needed someone to fix it. You could see the wall was false, as every time Dot touched the shelf, the wall was wobbling. Later same episode Martin Fowler fixed the shelf he said something like "the wall will fall down before the shelf does" - very true.

Revealing mistake: In the legendary episode where Steve Owen dies, the car somehow manages to get flipped over onto its roof. Only a bomb going off would create such an effect, not just the tank going up.

Revealing mistake: In the episode where the "young" group of characters leaves for Scotland on New Years Eve, they're supposedly leaving at 7 in the morning, yet the sun is shining high in the sky during a deep winter's day.

Revealing mistake: Episode aired 06/05/2016. Steve (Ronnie's stalker) pulls out a folder of newspaper clippings concerning Ronnie's baby-swap case. It shows up close an "article" which is seemingly legit when reading the first few lines...only to show the same sentence repeatedly, merely the information having been rephrased. Either the Eastenders-verse bears some rather incompetent and careless journalists, or the writers of the soap were simply too much too bone-idle to write up even the most mediocre of articles.

Question: Has Joe (Pauline's husband) been a narrator for a children's program in the past? I recognize his voice and am sure its something to do with kids TV.

Answer: Yes he was the narrater for the kids TV show Mr Benn. This was the program where Mr Benn would go into a costume shop each episode and try on a different outfit. He would then "be" the character he dressed up as.
