Don't think they should be killing anybody's baby off ,especially at Christmas.I know there's no Peggy this year so they can't do the big Mitchell family Christmas drama but this is right up there with the Emmerdale plane crash in distasteful.It's like gawping at a road accident as you drive by on the motorway,smeone else's upset,only they're not real people.I'm sure nobody who has suffered such a loss will be needing a reminder at Christmas or any other time.It's not about raising awareness of an issue,it's the greatest fear of any new Mum.A soap is cheap entertianment,much as we love them,give us something to look forward to.
Swaping the babies though,,any parent knows their own child,now that's just silly.Didn't one of the cheap and nasty soaps do that story many years ago,might have been Eldorado.I was not a regular viewer,honest.
I'm sure I can manage to find other things to do with my time over Christmas.Two weeks after Christmas the story line will be forgotten and they'll be on to something new,that's about how sensitive it'll be.
I respect the fact that EastEnders covers controversial, important and distressing storylines, but I really think this is too much - and I think the fact that this will be the third child that Ronnie (Samantha Janus Womack) has lost in the space of 18 months or so (Danielle, the miscarriage and now the cot death infant) is just unbelievably cruel. I will watch, because I love the show and I'm sure the acting and writing will be top-notch, but I'm disappointed that the writers chose this as a Christmas storyline.
