One of the real issues with it, that's the case with far too many soap storylines, is that it's gone on for too long. Far too long. And it's not even over yet, and god knows how much is left to run.
Far too long in soapworld seems to be about three weeks, and guess it's really not helped by airing six times a week. In the real world such events have been known to unfold over years, even decades.
Shouldn't that have been posted in the "John Logie Baird has Invented Television"
