Eastenders Background

Eastenders is one of the most popular television soaps in the United Kingdom. It’s run for decades and has managed to create dozens of memorable characters while also establishing itself in the modern-day pop culture. 

Eastenders is a soap set in the fictional borough of Walford in East London. The borough, which is home to the famous Queen Vic pub and a small high street, is loosely based on Walthamstow’s high street market (One of the longest markets in Europe) and the London borough of Stratford; Walford is a combination of Walthamstow and Stratford. 

The show follows several families who all live in Walford as they go about their daily lives. When the show first debuted back in 1985 on BBC One, it consisted of families the Fowlers, Beales, Watts and Mitchells. 

One of the reasons the show is still so popular today is because it revolves around tight relationships and family, with each character having their own role in the tightly-knit community. 

However, that isn’t to say the show isn’t filled with drama, shocks and scandals. In fact, Eastenders is packed full of them! Since its launch, the show has had storylines on murder and affairs. It’s also tackled more sensitive topics including kidnapping, rape, mental health and abuse. 

Most people in the UK can look back at famous storylines from the show and recall exactly what happened. And most can also name off all of the classic characters from the Mitchells to the Beales.
