EASTEN­DERS

The Irish Mail on Sunday - TV Week - - SEVEN DAYS -

I have no idea if Kim is go­ing to continue mak­ing those ridicu­lous tiger noises ev­ery time she is within a yard of Ray, be­cause I hit the mute but­ton on my re­mote when she ap­pears. This is no criticism of Tameka Emp­son, who plays her – if any­thing, it’s a com­pli­ment that she con­veys Kim so con­vinc­ingly – there are just some char­ac­ters I can’t bear. It can be a hair­cut, a way of speak­ing – it’s just how we re­act to the telly some­times.

On Tues­day, Kim be­comes sus­pi­cious of Ray and his dis­hon­est be­hav­iour – more calls from an un­known fe­male, shifty re­gard­ing his where­abouts. She de­cides to give it to him with both bar­rels in front of Sasha, who has been en­joy­ing her first day in the funeral par­lour. But alas, she hasn’t been busy pre­par­ing Kim on the slab.

So, is Ray Kat’s mys­tery man? I doubt it. He has to bend al­most dou­ble when he kisses Kim – un­less he’s look­ing to be in trac­tion for the rest of his life, he’s not go­ing to pick an­other small woman.

One of the eas­i­est ways to in­tro­duce some new char­ac­ters is to spirit up long-lost rel­a­tives, and now, it tran­spires, Tanya has a sis­ter that Cora kept from her. On Mon­day, she is des­per­ate to find out more, but Cora is re­luc­tant to im­part any in­for­ma­tion. Max also tries to mine Cora for de­tails. I’ll bet he does. A sis­ter of his wife who he hasn’t man­aged to bed? How could he have let his stan­dards slip?

There is some po­ten­tial com­edy (don’t get too ex­cited – I only said po­ten­tial) on Mon­day, when Roxy con­vinces Chris­tian that he should en­ter Yas­min in the Wal­ford’s Top Tots com­pe­ti­tion. On Tues­day, when she hears about the prize money, Zainab de­cides it would be a good idea if Kamil took part as well. That should be some bat­tle.
