Looks like the new set is making the headlines for the wrong reason....

EastEnders set rebuild goes £27m over budget
The BBC's project to build a brand new, HD-ready Albert Square and expand the external EastEnders set will now cost £27m more than originally planned.

The original 2015 forecast for the scheme was £59.7m, but the revised budget is now £86.7m, the National Audit Office (NAO) has revealed.

The new set was originally due to open in 2018, but won't be ready until 2023.

Seems to be a lot of confusion about this.

I remember the Vic being cited as a particular problem for HD, and I seem to remember there was a plan to go HD once it had been on fire (again) and done up. But I'm pretty sure they ended up going HD before that anyway.

Not quite if I remember rightly. The Queen Vic burned down in September 2010 and Hd Broadcasts started on Christmas Day (with it being upscaled from the launch of BBC One Hd.)
