Britain's best-known TV critic has a love/hate relationship with our most loved, and most ridiculed soap opera. Having never missed an episode, Garry Bushell now brings devotees and detractors alike this hilarious guide to the cock-ups, continuity errors, character re-writes and ludicrous plot-lines that make up BBC TV's biggest show. This book is the perfect way to cheer up those who hate the soap - and to bring a smile to the lips of those who love it. It's guaranteed to deliver something even the Christmas Day "EastEnders" episode won't supply: laughs! 'A rollicking good read...it shines a light on the metaphorical castration of working class soap characters by BBC bigwigs who have never set foot in the East End' - SpikedOnLine 'Hilarious, spot on and brilliantly observed' - the Daily Star 'Really funny and genuinely insightful' - Brendan O'Neill
