: EastEnders

Sharon confronts Dennis, with an outcome that shocks Den. Patrick has a proposal on his mind.
Cast on Thursday Repeated at 10pm on BBC3
(AD) [web address removed]

EastEnders 7.30pm BBC1
Crikey, when did Tennessee Williams rise from the dead and start writing for EastEnders? Tonight's episode is seething with sexual tension, guilt, betrayal, torment and the shadow of a sudden, violent death. And if Dennis Rickman ever strips down to his vest a la Marlon Brando, the picture will be complete.
Most of the episode is taken up with Sharon and Dennis - Sharon doing what she does best, looking all mournful, as Dennis is given a spectacularly lengthy monologue about what it feels like to kill someone. Well, you have to get these things out of the way at the start of any relationship, don't you?
Dennis, even more tortured than usual, spills the beans because Big Daddy himself, Den Watts, has let Sharon in on a little secret in an attempt to split up the young lovers - that Dennis murdered Dalton. Cue lots of angst and melodrama as Sharon goes round to speak to Dennis to hear his side of the story. Will she dump him for being a killer, or will she be overwhelmed by his musky animal magnetism?
It's all tremendously overheated, but by the end you might find yourself wishing that they'd all just shut up. That goes double for the irritating Vicki, who has a few little moments of her own, shouting at her dad and demanding that he recognise Dennis as part of their "family". Will someone please give her a clip around the ear? (AG)

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
