EastEnders are playing with fire by putting the life of Dot Branning at risk again – just what are they trying to do to us!? It wasn’t long ago that they had her involved in a car crash and now the beloved Walford icon is about to take a nasty fall in her kitchen.
But let’s not panic – it seems like everything will be okay but her neighbours and friends will be left facing an important lesson as Sonia Fowler has it out with them all for not checking in on Dot more often.
With Dot preparing for Patrick Trueman’s birthday, she is busy and in her hurry she trips over Dave the cat and is sent crashing to the ground. In too much pain to move, Dot has no choice to wait for help but when Patrick calls round and fails to hear her calls, she is left wondering how long she is going to be left alone with an injury.
Later, when Sonia arrives back in Walford, she is horrified to walk in and find Dot on the floor in pain and calls an ambulance as Patrick and the other residents watch her rushed to hospital. Sonia is furious that no-one has been keeping an eye on Dot and news soon reaches everyone that Dot will need a hip operation.
As Patrick smarts with guilt over not being there for Dot when he needed her, can he make it up to his friend?
One to watch: Monday 26th June at 8pm on BBC One.
