Ex- Eastenders

OK you lot.
Of all those thousands of former somebodies - the cast of eastnders has lost people to murders, car crashes and tiffs ( no pun intended - Tiff being killed in a car crash)
How many can we name?

Here are some starters
Debs and Andy
Angie Watts - what a Queen!!!
Michelle Fowler
Roly the dog
LOfty - the sex god
Sue and Ali
Mark - remember him??

Extra marks for obscure names for characters we remember vaguely like Tiff's brother.


  • I can't help as I haven't watched Eastenders since 1986, just wanted to say it's a good job somebody's around doing the twilight shift on the Forum while everyone else is out enjoying themselves.
  • Eddie Royle, the ex-policeman who took over at the Vic for a bit before supposedly being stabbed by Nick Cotton, which of course brigns me to Nick and his father Charlie.

    Then there was Caff and Donna, the child she had when she was about 14, who died of an overdose or something. Then there was a tall black girl who I think used to be on Grange Hill who was a stripper or something - I can't remember her name though.

  • Sanjay

    Laura what happened in 1986 to make you never watch Eastenders again. It must have been fairly traumatic. Was it Den getting shot!
  • Ali from the caff and his mad wife who had post natal depression. The gay couple, Dr Legg, the Scottish bloke who knocked over and his blonde wife...Barkles, this could go on forever
  • Yup certainly could.
    They're kicking 'em out all the time.

    Frank Butcher -that counts twice, at least.
  • Who could forget Nigel?
  • Mary the punk and her daughter Annie.
  • Didnt Nigels wife get knocked over by a truck or something, and what about Marks dad who ran the barra before him......
  • How do like the picture, BK kindly re-sized it for me, what a star......
  • A touch of the Graham Taylors about it!
  • Oh and Ethel, does that count, didnt Dot help her to go ?
  • Reg Cox must have the shortest Eastenders career ever - he didn't have any lines to say and was found dead in the first ever episode.

    Then there was that geezer asleep in a car on the car lot when Phil Mitchell torched it.

    Marks first wife Gill who died of an AIDS related ilness, then his second wife Ruth went back home to Glasgow (can't really blame her for that though), now his third wife has just left him. He's a bit of a jinx really.

    Pete Beal ran the fruit and veg stall before Mark and came to a sticky end with some of the local gangsters, and his wife Kathy married Phil Mitchell before leaving for south Africa.

    Who could forget the gormless Nigel? And Dot left once but then returned and helped Ethel commit Hari-Kari.

    Wicksy left the Queen Vic and became a copper in North Yorkshire (Heartbeat), and his girlfriend Mags, who I think was giving Dirty Den a seeing to as well.

    Alan and Carol Jackson (Robbie and Sonia's Mum and Step-dad).

    Oh and Melanie Healy/Owen - never been the same since she left.

    Saskia, who Steve Owen bashed with an ashtray before Phil Mitchell assisted in Steve's own come uppance.

    Binnie and Della the two lesbians. Binnie worked in the Vic and Della was a hairdresser who Steve (forgotten his surname) was a bit keen on, but obviously didn't have any luck.

    Hattie and Clyde and their parents.

    And James Wilmott-Brown who owned the Dagmar, but Dirty Den burned it down after he (Wilmott-Brown) had raped Kathy Beale. It was later refurbished as the meal machine owned by Ian Beale.

    Peggy's sister made a few appearances, but I can't recall her name. Anyway, she was really Olive from "On the Buses".

    Well I could think of loads more, but I have to go out now, so part 2 will have to follow.

    I realise that I am now the sddaest person on the forum.

    I'll get my coat!!!
  • Do you work for the BBC Wakey ?.........

    You must have access to the scripts......
  • What about Tony and Kelvin Carpenter. Don't know what happened to Kelvin but his dad went on to drive the Lilt float on a carribean island.
  • Ashley Cotton - Dot's grandson
    Lou Beale (not sure if anyone has already mentioned her)
  • How about the wonderful Oz who ran Ozcabs from the cafe?
  • LauraL did you get a life in 1986.
  • Tim theyre auctioning specially comissioned ironing boards onwww.qxl.com/goto/braun
    Thought you'd like to know
  • Yeah, but if you took your stuff to a service wash at Paulines you wouldn't need to iron it.
  • Has anyone ever seen Mr opodopolous?
  • He has appeared a few times but because of his enormous fee as a grade A actor, the BBC cannot afford to keep him on as a regular
  • Drs Legg & Fonsecka (sp)
    Michael Aspel's wife who Arthur had an affair with
    Big Ron - I think that was his name, he was always on his stall or at the bar of the Vic and I don't think he said a word in about 12 years!!
  • ...the curly haired woman and her son who went loopy and the lad who was with Steve Owen when he ashtrayed the woman, somebody's daughter who went religious and is now the daughter in My family .. sorry, the names escape me!
  • Saddly, I think the actor who played Big Ron died, but I could be wrong as I haven't had a telly for 7 years! Isn't Fonsecka a maker of some rather fine Port?
  • The curly haired mum of the nutter was gorgeous.
  • Fear not if the names escape you - there is always a sad git who will assist on that front.

    The lad who went loopy was Joe (or jaw as his mother pronounced it). His mother was called Lorraine and she used to be married to David Wicks who was Joe's (jaws) dad. She also had a fling with Grant Mitchell whilst he was still married to Tiffany.

    The daughter who went religious was Ted Hills daughter Sarah and her brother Tony was having a gay affair with Tiffany's brother Simon. Just to complicate matters, Simon's father Terry was living with Tony's mother Irene.

    I'm going out for a run!!
  • Anyone mentioned Gwarnt Mitchell (as peggy pronouncesit)
  • Oh ans what about the irish footballer who stayed with ARFUR and also the cool Coloured lass who became a singer?
    The vicar who was trendy.

    Willie the dog - not an instruction.
