Richard Blackwood is long term I believe because he's skint (plenty of recent interviews on Google he mentions this in).

Abi who happens to be the youngest Branning was the most professional of the family in live scenes with Lauren not there due to real life birth last sunday, Tanya calling someone by their real name and Max mumbling at the end of tuesdays episode.

Bobby makes perfect sense as the murderer because.......

1) Not long after Lucy died Jane took him away from Albert Square.

2) When he made his own return back to London he was found by where the dead body of Lucy was found. Too much of a coincidence to know the exact place if he wasn't involved.

3) Collected alot of newspaper cuttings about the death which was put down to a school project.

Blackwood I hope turns out to be a nasty villain as the show has lacked a decent one since Derek Branning who was killed off after only a very short run in the show despite being the most entertaining character in years. Prior to him you have to go back as far as Steve Owen and Dan Sullivan for a really effective baddy.

Peggy's one episode return seemed pointless as it was never explained why she was there and she didn't do anything of note.

Same can be said of Tanya, at least her brief return made sense as a wedding guest of her best mate Jane but more could have been made of her appearance like her announcing she was getting re-married or was pregnant or was moving abroad with a new fella etc. All we got was some very lame attempt to rekindle things with her ex Max.

Really hoping that Mick hasn't killed Dean as that would be complete overkill for deaths.

Martin Fowler seems to be hinting at coming back full-time, not exactly thrilled about that as the new guy is a inferior actor to the original.

A lot of the stuff in the flashback episode was confusing, what were Ben and Jay up to with Lucy? Did Billy have some weird crush on Lucy?

The live episode tonight went well with no mess ups from the cast involved, they wisely kept things simple with only a select few of the cast participating and most of the episode was filmed in the Beale house.

Large praise is deservedly going to Adam Woodyatt and Laurie Brett who had the most dialogue and had to display a lot of emotion, Ben Hardy playing Peter Beale was also involved a lot and did well.

Danny Dyer nailed his hardman strut perfectly in his live scenes
It was a good call to keep Bobby Beales lines simple and his scenes brief as it's asking a lot of a 11-12 year old to do live scenes.

Adam Woodyatt was excellent and will win awards for the week he's had.

Laurie Brett I thought was poor. She was naff at trying to cry on the spot to look sad.

Eliott who plays Bobby the producer has said he asked his dad on monday if he minded his son being the killer, then told Eliott who said it made sense and went on to tell the producer why it did LOL

Nice exit for Peter Beale where someone leaving the square actually made sense for once, you can understand him not wanting to be around the place where his sister was killed and having to see his brother who killed her all the time as well as Jane who covered the killing up. He also headed out to New Zealand where he has his step brother Stephen to put him up for a while so it was a completely feasible exit strategy rather than the usual departing into the sunset with nothing more than a ruck-sack with no money or any idea where they're going leaving behind a job, business, family etc.

Not sure what the situation with Lauren is, it's never been announced she's leaving the show but she will be taking a extended break for maternity leave that's for sure, so not sure if she's coming back or not.

Ben Hardy has landed an Hollywood role in the new X Men movie so won't be coming back.

Jaqueline Jossa will hopefully be back in Eastenders after her maternity leave and not make an easy decision of joining TOWIE.

As you say the way Peter left made sense. You wouldn't want to carry on living in that house and watching TV in the living room where your brother killed your twin.

I could even buy into Lauren leaving with him as she's carrying his baby and wanted a fresh start to try and be happy leaving behind her alcoholism and a ton of family issues.

I called it ages ago when she started dating Dan from TOWIE and then got preggers that it would only be a matter of time before she quit Eastenders. Young actors rarely last long in Enders anyway as its long gruelling hours and most have little interest in being a longterm soap star simply seeing it as a foot in the door to Hollywood.

I guess she could join TOWIE but it would be considerably less money than she earns in Enders and I think they like to keep the cast as authentic Essex folk.

She's a serious and well liked actress in one of the top shows in the country, so hopefully she's just enjoying her maternity leave.

It would be career suicide for her to join TOWIE. Less money, nowhere near as many watch it and it would ruin the image she's built up within the career she has. Massive backward step.

Right now though with all the Dan Osbourne shit going on with the two recorded rants at his ex who he had his son with I don't think Dan will ever be back on TOWIE nevermind Jacqueline joining him. She will probably be a single mum before the year is done.

The Ronnie/Roxy deaths storyline was typically far fetched and tragic but I guess it could happen?? Not sure what happened to Roxy to cause her to drown??

The reappearance of Danny Mitchell only really served as a reminder as to why they axed the character to begin with.

The Lee Carter story is building to his exit which is a shame as he's proved to be a decent actor recently.

Good to see Max back who obviously has some sort of big revenge plan that he's not revealed yet.

What I would like to see in 2017.....

Some decent new cast members who actually stick around rather than being cut or quitting before they have any chance to make a impact.

The square to be modernised, scrapping the launderette is a start I guess.

More people like Lee to have jobs off the square, it's ridiculous that all the residents only seek employment within the confines of Albert Square.

Glenda to appear more although it's hard to see what part she will play without her daughters. The Danny Mitchell character could be decent as part of the new generation of Mitchells(Ben, Jay, Louise etc) but he should have been re-cast.

This new Eastenders producer is getting shut of too many people too fast. In just recent months they have lost Ronnie and Roxy. Grant which couldn't be helped so much but recast Courtney with someone who looked like her screen mum and got shut of her after about a month. Three of the Coker family and Claudette. Lee and Babe are both leaving soon. Masood and Kemil. Mark Junior was in it for all of two minutes. I've probably forgot some too.

As a producer i'd never insult viewers by recasting iconic characters so we have to play dumb to them not being the same person like with Michelle being back.

On the plus side as long as Tilly Keeper is in the show.........
