    "In the episode of Eastenders which aired on 30th December 2010, there is a scene where Ronnie Mitchell and Heather Trott are on a train. This train is (supposedly) a District Line train which is shown to pull in to Barking Station. There are many innacuracies with this.

    For starters, it has previously been established that the fictional location of Walford and it's Walford East train station exist in the location Bromley by Bow inhabits on the real-world tube map. Barking is 5 stops on the district line from this location, but all of these stops are over ground. Why, then, does the train spend a lot of it's time underground, only to emerge from the darkness just before pulling in to Barking station?

    Then there is the matter of pulling in to the station. The train comes in to Barking station as if it were coming in from the Upminster end of the line (as if it were going towards London) which would mean it was going towards Walford. There are a few problems with this. For one, Ronnie would have stepped out on to the tracks had she exited the way she did. Secondly, it makes no sense for the train to be going this way as she has just come from Walford (/Bromley by Bow).

    The train also, mysteriously, ends up right near the end of the platform. This is strange given the interior of the carriage, which seems to indicate that Ronnie and Heather are sitting at the rear of the train, as there would be a window in the door behind them which looks in to the next carriage had they been at the end indicated. Instead there is a normal door, which would go through to the drivers compartment.

    Finally, the question of why Ronnie was even going to Barking in the first place? Our hospital is far closer to Upney station, which is one stop further down the line, but even so our hospital doesn't have a maternity ward! So she must have been going to a different hospital, and as such could have taken the train to any number of other locations which are closer."

    Good enough?

    I don't think I'll be able to watch Eastenders for like a week or two. I just don't feel comfortable with the storyline tbh. :unsure:

    Actually I do want to see Whitney find out Connor is banging Carol. :rofl2: I hope Tiffany spills the beans soon. :mmm:

    :rofl: at the tube scene.

    Connor is almost always topless, I think the producer must have taken a fancy to him and his tits. My sister read somewhere in a magazine that:

    Exactly. Carol, that was your son's best friend :sigh:

    What is she thinking? At first it was because she was grieving but now it's going a little bit too far. Whitney should have just stuck with Peter Beale.

    I actually thought Peter Beale was quite fit.

    What were the EE producers, writers smoking when they did that train scene with Ronnie/Heather? Just shocking. Looked so out of place. There was no reason for it, I mean, we as the audience always know that a pregnant character's water breaks, then is rushed off to the hospital in the car and next scene is she's in the hospital!

    Spoiler:

    The baby swap storyline - the inconsistencies in it are just shocking. The audience will watch and say "WTF!". The iffy areas have already been mentioned by posters, this angle could backfire on EE writers. I hope it does tbh

    That's good to hear. With their script writers, I thought they would drag it till Christmas where the reveal would be done on Xmas/New Year's Day. I think Kat will end being angry then sympathizing with Ronnie rather than waging full out war on the Mitchells which would be more better IMO

    No doubt, come next christmas it'll all be forgotten about. With the reveal, I think they should do two hander with Ronnie & Kat. Alfie & Jack can find out off screen, no need for their 'acting' to ruin it

    I can't make up my mind about Connor. Is he a genuine guy who is actually interested in Carol or is he just as sleazy and Bianca thinks he is? :dontknow:

    Good news about the Ronnie/Kat storyline. I had a horrible feeling they were going to drag it out for God knows how long.

    I agree, and hopefully Ronnie doesn't end up in jail or something. It can't possibly get any worse for her than this.
