Product Description

Amazon Review

Who's Who In EastEnders is a timely companion volume to the much loved BBC soap currently celebrating 15 years on our screens. Ostensibly a reference book, albeit a bright and colourful one, Who's Who is aimed at fans of Albert Square who have followed a variety of characters over the years. Within a chunky 9" square paperback format, chapters trace the history of the East End dynasties of Beales and Fowlers, Mitchells, Butchers, Di Marcos and more. The lives of all major characters--within the square and onto fictional futures beyond--are condensed into biographies of just a few easy-to-read paragraphs. Sheer volume of information coupled with limited space prevents the author from delving deep into the psyches of her fictional subjects as she did in previous books Tiffany's Secret Diary, Bianca's Secret Diary and EastEnders--Blood Ties: the Life and Loves of Grant Mitchell, but her wide brush strokes nevertheless reveal a plethora of inter-family relationships, loves and grudges long held over the years. A map of Albert Square, complete with current residents' house numbers, and a section devoted to the pets of E20 complete the volume, so if you are brushing up your Eastenders trivia--for fun or for pub quiz prizes--you need never be lost for an answer again. --Helen Lamont

Format: Paperback
I give great praise to Kate Lock for not only keeping track of all the family lines (i.e. who married/slept with who) and there is an absolute wealth of photographic material on the cast. However, though the map is nice, some photographs of the buildings would have been helpful. An episode guide and a background on the creation of the show is a huge oversight in this book, espceially for those of us who haven't seen the pre-1990 episodes. Even some bvehind the scenes shots or stories would have been great. Let's hope that for the 20th Anniversary, a much more in depth book can be written.

This book is very helpful if you want to know who's who in the square. It shows colour pictures of everyone since the 19th of February 1985 to the present day. This book even shows who lives where on the illustrated map. So go and buy it now!
