They don't make a very good point at all. Eastenders is filmed about 6-8 weeks in advance.

Aren't they 6 weeks in advance with shooting?

And surely Phil Mitchell is a riot on his own anyway? :rofl:

Yes they do make a very good point. In the past, EastEnders has edited episodes and made reference to events. The Queen Mother's death in 2002, 7/7 in 2005 and the Royal Wedding back in April (even showing footage of it).

It can be done. EastEnders should've made reference to the recent riots, even more so as the soap is London-based.

why should it though ? EE is depressing enough as it is :)

I remember a documentary a few years ago which featured people who really though they were real. Amazing. ..... but funny. :D

It'd help if they filmed the episodes live and reflect real life. Unfortunately, they're mostly shit actors and the continuity is all over the place; a mate of mine mentioned the live Coronation Street episode where most of the cast forgot their lines, and a disabled character actually got out of her wheelchair for a stretch while they were still filming :rofl:

Joke TV. Really ought to shelve the lot of em.

Sounds like a usual days work on the set.

It happens with live drama, I salute them for taking the risk and trying.

Yup! personally I think performances are better live. It's all too sterile and robotic after being edited to perfection
