Chris Clenshaw has gone to great pains to say it's something EastEnders specifically has not done before, he openly admits it's been done before by other soaps

Yes, seems a soap journo wrote it up as a soap first when EE said nothing of the sort.

How far ahead did Hollyoaks flashforward? 10 months seems long and drawn out.

A full year iirc

Well at least we have an idea of what's happening this Christmas instead of them dragging out a storyline for 10 months as they usually do on EE before we get to the climax.

The whole episode in general had a quite different look to usual as well, or at least that's how it felt to me.

Also the thing with the flash forward is going to be awkward if something happens with one or more of the actresses who appear in it and they aren't able to appear in the Christmas episode. Unless they've already filmed enough to work around any potential absences.

Lets hope someone remembers what Christmas Decorations they used to film this flash forward when December comes around! Wink

It looks like planning permission for new sets on part of the old lot have been submitted.  Unfortunately the link is not working at the moment.  It looks like the remain parts of the original set in that photo will form part of the new sets.  The albert (green building) will be some form of Café.  In front of it will connect with the old park to make a new bigger park.  The allotments will also be made bigger staying at the side of the current park.  Looks like part of the old community centre will be come a hospital entrance.  Yes the hospital is here to stay continuing to make use of the old Holby interior sets.  Looks like there going to be a row of 4 shops and a new police station.

It definitely looks a lot better with EastEnders making use of the old Holby sets for the hospital, before then we always only ever seemed to see the exact same stretch of corridor which had been painted to look like a hospital (which I seem to remember reading where someone pointed out had some old ATV studio lights still visible above a doorway).
