We return to an Albert Square in the grips of tragedy this evening following the not-so-shocking events of last week’s double bill.
Viewers were treated to some heart-wrenching scenes in the long-running series’ last episode as Leonard Fenton’s Doctor Legg – one of the show’s few remaining original characters from the 1980s – succumbed to his illness with June Brown’s fellow veteran character, Dot Branning, at his side.
This evening – given that Monday’s episode was postponed due to the high-profile FA Cup match between Chelsea and Manchester United – sees the residents of Walford pay their final respects to Doctor Legg. Masood’s nieces Iqra and Habiba quickly make an impact while Sharon feels the pressure to get information from Phil.
EastEnders – Tuesday 7:30pm on BBC One.
