    Well, it was never going to last was it?

    John Yorke will step in on a temporary basis.

    I know you can't believe everything you read in the red tops, but a lot must be true. I thought the BBC didn't give a S**T about the show, perhaps they do? Not getting axed just yet, but the wheels need to be put back on the cart, if things aren't good by this time next year it will be ........... Eldorado. [​IMG]

    Perhaps that would be a good thing? Do the Beeb need soap? The soap has had far too many ups and downs in recent years.

    Aww, that's a shame, I really like what he's done. And yet at the same time I'm like, ooh, what'll happen next?? I guess, ultimately, Enders is bigger than whoever produces it. I feel the same way about Who -- I don't really mind who's in charge, I'm just fascinated to see what happens.

    I can genuinely see the BBC pulling the plug within the next 5 years. 'Enders just isn't sexy enough in an era of Netflix, box sets, international sales, etc.

    He is crazy. He killed off Ronnie and Roxy ffs. Now his terrible vision hasn't worked out and he's off so what a waste. Enders cannot be run on next to no storylines.

    But on a serious note, even last night when EastEnders rated the lowest out of the big 3, it was still the most watched show on BBC1 and while EE is in crisis, i think it isn't going any where anytime soon.

    I was being a bit dramatic when I described EE as Eldorado and said it could be curtains in a year. It isn't going any where. A new producer will be drafted in eventually and no doubt things will turn themselves around. These things happen in cycles. Look at CS under Stuart Blackburn.

    If I had to say which soap may take a downward turn, my money would be on Emmerdale, I don't think Ian McLeod has any vision or direction for the show, apart form keeping the RobRon fan base happy. Interesting times if nothing else and what is happening off screen is as entertaining as what is happening on screen. :)

    People have been been predicting the end of Enders since it began.

    God I wish they would just kill RobRon off already! They're not the
    John Paul/Craig of the 2010s, its nauseatingly patronising how they've handled this relationship unlike JP & Craig or even
    Saeed & Christian, Ian McLeod needs to go, and Emmerdale needs a massive revamp.

    And as for EastEnders, hopefully it can go back on track now and stop the meandering of its plots, the Max vengeance storyline does not need to go on any longer than this year, the fact that McLeod planned for this to run until the new decade is staggering.

    I thought this week's Enders was juicy as! All those slow burn plots bubbling along very nicely. I really like the unpredictable pacing of the plots.

    True. I just don't think it's a given that the BBC will keep it around indefinitely.

    Oh well - if it ends, it ends. But what a final episode that will be!

    I've never bought into this depressing thing people keep say. Believe it or not there is humour in the show, its just not slapstick end of the pier pantomime humour like Coronation Street. I have watched EE since it began in 1985 through good and not so good times and what EE does so well is the kitchen sink drama, something CS was very good at in the 1960's.

    For me the acting is alot better in EE than CS, but that's just a personal thing for me. EE will bounce back, I don't think the Beeb will pull the plug, in the official Barb ratings EE is the top rated show on BBC One pulling in over 6 million viewers.
