I'm doing one for all of these. Please list up things that the soap has done that seemed like a big mistake to you.

1. Killing off various members of the Fowler and Beale families.

On paper the storyline made sense, addicts often switch one addiction for another, however the execution of the storyline on screen was a disaster IMO and some of the things we had to see on screen were totally unacceptable for that time slot. What EE should have done is cover this in a late night series, perhaps shown on BBC3, in the style of what Hollyoaks used to do.

Bringing Danny Dire in, and he has not even made his screen debut yet.

Relying too much on bringing back old characters. Corrie and Emmerdale are nowhere near as guilty as this. Ronnie, Shazza, Stacey, etc.

with you on the returning characters emmerdalefan , Eastenders seem to do that far more than others ... I'd also like to add bringing in any gangster type characters it just doesn't work does it ?
Killing off Ronnie's daughter Danielle ,imo just seemed an easy option producers / writers are were just too hung up on the whole tragic thing with Ronnie, which is unfortunate
The whole Roxie / Alfie pairing really ...just didn't buy it , in fact Roxie's whole queen of Ibiza speech summed it up well for me it was too rushed anyway

Killing Den off.

At least they took back the decision to kill Kathy off and she was alive all the time.

It is going to have to be a helluva good storyline to explain what her backstory is.

Ian went to South Africa and brought Ben back, presumably he identified their bodies? Is her hubby still dead? Where does Phil fit in? They weren't exactly on speaking terms when she left!
