EASTEN­DERS

The Irish Mail on Sunday - TV Week - - SOAP WATCH -

Sim Si­mon Ash­down’s bril­liantly writ­ten epi episode on Fri­day, as the show said goo good­bye to Tanya, was a real tear-jerker. With sim­ple yet force­ful dia­logue – and never for a mo­ment laps­ing into maw mawk­ish­ness or sen­ti­men­tal­ity – Jake Wo Wood ( Max) and Jo Joyner ( Tanya) del de­liv­ered faultless per­for­mances that wer were to­tally con­vinc­ing. The week also saw a tremen­dous per­for­mance from Jacq Jac­que­line Jossa, as the phys­i­cal ef­fects of Lau­ren’s al­co­holism took their toll.

On Mon­day, we hear that Lau­ren is doin do­ing OK but, hav­ing lost ev­ery­thing, Max breaks down in front of Abi (right). Mi Mind d you, it hasn’t been a great time for Abi, ei­ther, hav­ing to wear that over-ripe plum to her birth­day party. She’s a pretty girl, but with the dress, hair and ex­ces­sive make-up, she could have passed for Norma Des­mond.
