  1. I love EastEnders! I watch on my local PBS station in NY, so we are in Fall of 2005, (Sam just left the Square to escape going to prison for her part in Den's death). Good to know Jane and Ian are still together...I guess, Ian being such a putz. And Nick Cotton is back?! Hope Dot's alright...LOL!
