EAS­TEN­DERS

ABOUT TO BE SHOPPED?

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

It’s one thing to go off the rails, quite an­other to have a train wreck of a life. Hav­ing played Mother Teresa to all and sundry for months, it’s the mo­ment for Whit­ney (pic­tured) to en­joy a bit of me time. Af­ter re­ceiv­ing a let­ter from Lee’s lawyer about a di­vorce, she needs a dis­trac­tion and tells Johnny she’s go­ing shop­ping. But when she for­gets her purse and Woody sets off to find her, he’s un­pre­pared for what he sees at the shop­ping cen­tre. Me­thinks she won’t be at the Ap­ple Ge­nius bar dis­cussing the mer­its of the MacBook Air.

I’m un­con­vinced by Denise’s con­tin­u­ing fi­nan­cial woes, and now she’s forced to visit the food bank. You can’t tell me that in Al­bert Square, where ev­ery­one is fairm-ly, that some­one can’t throw her a pizza slice.

Kim, mean­while, holds a meet­ing about the com­mu­nity cen­tre be­ing closed down. Hoo-flamin’-ray, I say; com­mu­nity cen­tres are the kiss of death in soa­p­land. The one in Wal­ford is es­pe­cially bad, giv­ing lo­cals the chance to drone on even more than they nor­mally do.
