EAS­TEN­DERS

The Irish Mail on Sunday - TV Week - - YOUR MOVIE PLANNER -

Af­ter sev­eral months away, Dot re­turns to the Square and finds her­self on the re­ceiv­ing end of a tra­di­tional Wal­ford wel­come – she walks in on grand­chil­dren Lau­ren and Joey (be­low) get­ting steamy.

By the end of the week, when she re­alises that her step­son Max has a se­cret wife and her other step­son Jack is about to shack up with Sharon, Dot ques­tions whether it was such a good idea to re­turn af­ter all. The real ques­tion should be why on earth any­body would ever think it a good idea.

On Tues­day, the Bran­nings de­cide to host a fam­ily meal at the Vic to wel­come back Dot. Given that their last at­tempt at one ended in a fist­fight, it’s fair to as­sume that this one won’t go to plan ei­ther.

Over at the Queen Vic, Roxy is lord­ing it over new char­lady Kat, who promptly re­signs when Al­fie backs Roxy and not her in an ar­gu­ment. Oh, who are they kid­ding? We all know that Al­fie is go­ing to be back with Kat be­fore the Easter Bunny vis­its, just as we all know that there’s no way thhat Sharon is go­ing to walk to the al­tar with Jack with­out one last hur­rah with Phil first.

I’m not sure whether it’s all those e riv­et­ing lec­tures on the Royal Mail or his way with rice but Aye­sha’s s baf­fling crush on Ma­sood con­tin­ues s this week. You can’t blame him for en­joy­ing the at­ten­tion of a beau­ti­ful woman, es­pe­cially since his own wife Zainab seems to have be­come sur­gi­cally at­tached to her r vac­uum cleaner of late.

Else­where, Dex­ter is charm­ing his s way into the hearts and homes of ev­ery­one in Al­bert Square. That’s the great thing about long lost rel­a­tives – you find one, three oth­ers are bound to fol­low. Be­fore long he is mak­ing a play for Lola, un­til Phil steps in and tells her she can do bet­ter. For an al­co­holic , ex crack- ad­dict jailb i rd, Phil cer­tainly seems to have pretty high stan­dards.
