It started on New Year’s Day with an hour-long special devoted to Aidan Maguire’s farcical armed robbery. Well he was armed. The rest of his ragbag gang had wooden guns.
The first week of January also saw Albert Square coming to terms with the aftermath of the ill-conceived ‘Project Dagmar’ storyline.
Months - James - Willmott-Brown - Excruciating - Yuppie
Months of James Willmott-Brown’s excruciating 1980 Yuppie boardroom clichés and villainous moustache twiddling, plus the tenuous sub-plots involving his children Luke, Fi, and Josh, came to… nothing basically.
The market and the Queen Vic were saved (again) and Max Branning returned all the deeds to the properties to their former owners.

Eyewitness - Masood - Uncle - Forensics - Mick
This was despite having an eyewitness (Masood’s uncle) and forensics from Mick Carter’s blood (after he was shot but before Masood’s auntie had, inexplicably, patched him up).
The protagonists had mysteriously vanished too.
Aidan - Phil - Keanu - Mick - Vincent
Aidan, Phil, Keanu, Mick, and Vincent had all left Walford at the same...
