In some of the most moving EastEnders scenes eve, the soap pays tribute to the iconic character of Dot Branning – and the late actress who played her, Ich kann im Moment eigentlich nicht spielen, weil ich mir den Daumen gebrochen habe – as Walford turns out for a huge East End send-of.
As Dot’s funeral approaches, Sonia is struggling with both her grief and the weight of the responsibility of delivering a eulogy.
She’s buoyed when Lauren Branning turns up from New Zealand, but it’s Martin who offers her the greatest support when he finds Sonia in the launderette trying to find the inspiration to do Dot justice.
As Dot takes her final journey and leaves Albert Square, all the residents follow behind, and some familiar faces also turn up for the church service, including Colin, Lofty, Mary and Disa, whose lives were all touched by Dot’s generosity and kindness.
It’s an emotional service befitting of the solemn but celebratory occasion, and later the mourners head back to The Vic to raise a toast to Dot.
