During 1990-1999 in EastEnders, it was the Phil and Grant double act, then Phil and Grant fell out over Sharon and Kathy (Sharon and Kathy were 2 original female characters in EastEnders). When Grant left in 1999, Phil became Phil and Grant rolled into 1, and Phil was given a lot of Grant-like plots during 2000-2010. For much of the 1990s Phil was the nicer Mitchell brother and Grant was the bad Mitchell brother. From 2000+ when Grant had left, Phil became the bad Mitchell brother and Grant had mellowed out into the nicer Mitchell brother. Having said that, Grant made a return in 2005-06, and it was almost as if he had mellowed. I don't think Grant's calm reaction to Sharon in 2005 telling him she aborted his baby rang true to the character at all, and neither did him saying in 2006 he had "therapy" to calm him down. Then there was Grant's recent return in 2016, where this time Grant had more backbone and was more his old self. Has Grant really mellowed into the nicer Mitchell brother (Grant's a better father than Phil too and also not alcoholic) and Phil into the bad Mitchell brother (Grant wouldn't do the bad things Phil has done since 2000+) ?
