Sharon's return: 10 things that struck me
Sharon's back! The original Princess of Walford has returned for her fourth stint in EastEnders in typically dramatic style; she showed up in a bridal gown - and floods of tears - on the doorstep of her ex, Phil Mitchell. Here are 10 things that struck me most about her comeback.
The runaway bride - When Phil flung open his front door to find Sharon on the run from her wedding day, there were shades of Friends. Remember Rachel in the opening scene after she'd fled tying the knot with Barry and turned up pleading for help from old best friend Monica?
Or, for the sci-fi geeks, there were shades of Donna Noble's first Doctor Who appearance when she'd been plucked from the altar and dropped into the Tardis. And to think, some said Sharon returning to Walford was a sign the show's bosses had run out of unoriginal ideas.
