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)
