Eastenders

Trivia: The EastEnders set is built on the same spot that the "German" building site used in the first series of Auf Weidersen Pet, was located. If you look carefully you'll notice that the flats in the background are the same ones in both programmes.

Trivia: There is a shop in the square called Barratt's Bargain Corner, cleverly incorporating the BBC's initials.

Trivia: As of March 2010, Adam Woodyatt remains the only cast member still in the show from its inception in Feb 85. Still a bit behind Bill Roache, who has played Ken Barlow in Corrie since it began in 1960.

Trivia: 23 July 2009: In this episode, Ruth Gemmell plays Debra, the mother of Ryan (Neil McDermott). In real life, Gemmell is only thirteen years older than McDermott.

Factual error: When Cindy wanted a hitman to kill Ian she looks in the yellow pages to find one. Surely the police and the makers of the yellow pages would have been alerted if a hitman agency wants to advertise itself in the yellow pages?

Show generally

Question: Why in the kitchen at the Masoods' house do they have a 4 gang light switch? 1 would be for the main light. There are no under cabinet lights, the outside lights wouldn't be switched from here either. I'm an electrician and every time I see the switch it annoys me.

Answer: Most likely a mistake by the set designers or it's a recycled set which already had the switch on (they just repaint and add other fittings).
