In the world of soapland. What has been the worst soap storyline that you've seen and why? Have there been any storylines which has been plain dull, crap.

Also who is the worst soap character that has been cast in any soap and why?

The Gavin storyline has to be up there with one of the worst. It had so much potential but he turned out to be a complete flop at resembling anything even remotely menacing; he'd just turn up out of the shadows and say or do something cartoony and just disappear. The sabotaging of the show's history to make it seem like he hang around with the Watts and the Mitchells and was in fact Sharon's father was the final straw though. Completely unnecessary and so contradictory - contradictory to not only things that were set in stone theoretically but also to stuff we actually saw on screen (e.g. we know that the Mitchells and Watts never crossed paths until Den returned from the dead, we know that Kathy didn't know Gavin before leaving for South Africa). Just a total disaster and the biggest thing to ruin what was otherwise a decent run from exc. producer Dominic Treadwell-Collins.

I actually love that line, it's such a Tracey thing to say (and don't say that's because she's shit too x).

I don't like soaps, they have become too extreme and silly and they can't allow characters to just be happy, they have to make them have affairs, or kill someone, or do something crazy.

Some of my least favourite storylines would be

- Bring Ronnie's long lost daughter in, only to have her be killed after Ronnie find out who she is + then a few years later, Ronnie STEALS a baby after hers dies.

- Ben killing Heather + Heather having a baby with Darren Miller, while he was still with Libby

- A Lady Gaga and Girls Aloud loving sweet Ben being turned into a killer, similar with Abi turning from a sweet girl into a gobby bitch

- Kathy Beale coming back from the dead


A storyline that actually excited me is the Lucy Beale murder and I actually tuned back in to the soap for that but then quickly got sick of all the tomfoolery and went off the soap again.

The two most unrealistic ones that I have seen are Marlon from Emmerdale and Dev from Coronation Street, Two completely over the top characters with few people like that all the time in real life.

I like Dev he is funny but Marlon and his mannerisms are just annoying most of the time imo

The Gavin storyline is definitely the one that sticks out to me from recent storylines, a total damp squib and a complete misfire. To cast a well known name, have him tied to Kathy Beale's massive return from the dead, for it to only be that, was just so stupid. He wasn't remotely scary or menacing and never really did anything apart from a threat every few weeks. They sort of tried way too hard (having him conveniently be Sharon's real dad too) but equally just shoved any old shit on screen laugh.gif

I'd also say Nico in Hollyoaks with her whole murderous run. Will's murder, fair enough, that was basically self defence and he was a murderer himself. But to have her whack Carly's head in too, and then murder Patrick and Trevor in cold blood and thinking attemtped murder on Tom was right to get Peri back from him was just ridiculous. It would have been good if after Will they sort of explored the guilt and how that affected her, but they just decided that she killed one person accidentally so why not have her turn into Lindsey Butterfield II...

Steve's depression in Corrie. Simon Gregson is an appalling actor so it was extremely awkward to watch.
