Well two are minor characters whose departure won't cause too much of an impact.
As for Ash - a month or so I'd agree with axing him, but in the last couple of weeks the character has started to develop. Trouble is the character has more potential than the actor. I wish they'd take Anita with them though.

Agree with what you've said about the latter character there, but I'm glad that at least the former is going.

Well the Abi/Daniel storyline finally reached a conclusion tonight (on E4) - some fantastic performances from Keiron Richardson, playing Ste, this week. Would have been good though for the climax of the story to coincide with the return of Amy, but that's still a couple of months off.

Still a few problems though with Hollyoaks - tonight's episode worked well enough with the Darren/Jack storyline alongside the main Lucas story, but yesterday the contrast with Zak/Michaela just didn't work, with a bad mix of very emotional scenes from Ste and then supposedly humorous scenes with the rest.

Totally agree with you - Keiron Richardson was fab. Hollyoaks deserves far more credit than it gets ( at times ), although I'd wish they'd drop the pseudo comedy / Grange Hillesque type stuff.

Time Zak was written out IMO...

They do seem afraid of axing people at the moment once their natural soap cycle has ended. However, I do like the Call Centre storyline, but it would have been better for just one or two to go and work there and then introduce the people they work with as new regular characters.

So Hollyoaks Later - as usual with these late night specials the first couple of episodes were just the build up, but the climax of the stories themselves worked well - especially loved the wedding stuff this week.

Back to the main show and judging on tonight's E4 episode next week should be a cracker with the return of Eli and Jake - hopefully a sign of things to come after a rather poor summer.

Best of all though was tonight's special Hollyoaks: The Good, The Bad and The Gorgeous. For a clip show they put in more effort than your average telethon with four spoof movies featuring characters past and present throughout, including the return of Mr C. It's divided opinion elsewhere, but I thought it was brilliant myself - harmless fun only Hollyoaks can get away with, combined with well selected clips which show when Hollyoaks get it right, they really do get it right.

Agreed, Zak and Michaela scenes just get on my nerves. It's the same thing all the time. Michaela throws a wobbly and Zak moans about it. Not good tv.

The best week of Hollyoaks in a long time with three strong storylines running throughout and only a limited number of the cast used throughout the entire week.

Interesting tonight's E4 episode ended with a disclaimer saying any similarities to recent events are purely coincidence and Hollyoaks is filmed eight weeks in advance. Can't say though I've noticed a major story with such similarities in recent weeks.

They were referring to the two teenage girls that jumped off the Erskine bridge near Glasgow earlier this week.

It seems Hollyoaks have returned to its past ways and leaving characters who have left in the opening titles. Leila, Hannah and Zoe are still featured and a lot of them need updating.

Also I read on another site that
Josh and his parents are to be written out with Rhys remaining. It seems a shame as there are very few actual families left in Hollyoaks.


And judging by the last post prior to this one, interest in the Oaks must be waning. IMO the new student characters haven't worked at all, and it's time to get rid of Zak, Chris, Malachy, Hayley and Sasha.

New blood in a big way needed!

But praised for Ashley Taylor Dawson who's played a blinder in the last couple of weeks as usual!
