A month from now, EastEnders will be celebrating its 30th anniversary. What an accomplishment!
Also celebrating this joyous occasion will be the Charlotte (North Carolina) EastEnders Fan Club on Feb. 14 at El Toro Mexican Grill and Bar 20930 Torrence Chapel Rd, Cornelius, North Carolina 28031.
The theme apparently is Alfie & Kat (maybe because it’s Valentine’s Day). See them on Facebook for all the details.
I’m sure a fun time will be have by all.
Stateside fans might not have been able to order the recent Children In Need 2015 EastEnders calendar, but we can vote in Britain’s annual National Television Awards, for which online voting closes on mid-day (UK Time) January 21.
Here’s the link: http://www.nationaltvawards.com/vote
There are three categories in which EastEnders is nominated:
Serial Drama: EastEnders
Best Newcomer: Maddy Hill (Nancy Carter)
Serial Drama Performance: Danny Dyer (Mick Carter)
You can skip the categories that with which you might not be familiar.
You can vote for Sherlock and Downton Abbey. It was kind of weird to see Big Bang Theory nominated in the comedy category.
If you’re planning to be in London, you can buy tickets to attend the live event, which is televised on ITV at 7:30 pm on 21 January 2015.
Also, I just wanted to let everyone know about a great new website devoted to John Altman (Nasty Nick Cotton) put up by my mate Rachel at http://www.johnaltman.info
