They're Whitney Dean's first three episodes, broadcast at the start of April that year.

Final episode tonight ended with ‘To Be Continued...’ on the end board.

Are those credits normal, or special longer ones? 'Social Media', 'Archivist'?

About a couple of times a week they sometimes run longer credits featuring the names of those positions. It's presumably to fill out episodes which run a bit shorter.

Back to the golden days of EE next week. The show's first ever two hander episode featuring the iconic Den & Angie Watts.

How I miss those days of EE - when the show was truly class. Unlike the endless carousel of sensationalised deaths, murders, affairs, 'secrets' and 'reveals' that it is today.

Even the repeat run on Drama, currently at May 1994 - highlights how bad the show is nowadays.
London Lite and DJ Dave gave kudos

The actor who plays Peter Beale has posted a photo of some scripts, one of which has a production date beginning on the 29th June and a TX date of the 8th September, presumably the show will be back in production and on air on these dates. Might not be the first episode to air though (being a Tuesday, especially). Can't see the date on the other scripts to see what they say, there's 4 of them so possibly they're the scripts for the first week and it might be back on the 7th?

Interesting that production's apparently spread out over a month, but I guess with the current situation and only so many people being allowed on set at a time it's probably neccesary.

September makes more sense than rushing them out in August, especially if we have to go into lockdown again. I highly suspect one of the shows biggest priorities now is getting something in place for Christmas Day, so the less episodes they have to make before that means the less risk of them being without EastEnders on a day of the year they usually get one of their biggest audiences.

The scene used in this trailer advertising the end of UK Gold's first run was on today's first Drama episode (9/5/94):



I had always assumed the first UK Gold run ended at the end of the Jazzy/two episodes a week era, but presumably they must have shown the first month of the post-jazzy era too. Would be interesting to know exactly what the last episode they showed was.

BBC Four are rerunning 2008 episodes, beginning from April, starting this Sunday night. Seems a bit random.

They’re promoting the 2008 episodes as being on “iPlayer every week” in the EastEnders trails.

Does seem very random

Wasn't this around the time the iPlayer launched? Maybe it's one of the earliest points they can easily upload episodes on there with the contracts they already have and no re-negotiation?

Then again, UKTV don't seem to have any of the issues getting the episodes they show on UKTV Play, so I don't know...

1st April 2008 is Whitney Dean’s first episode, and a few news articles seem to indicate it’s been chosen as a starting point because of that.
