Pauline quits Eastenders

After 21 years on our screen, Pauline Fowler played by Wendy Richard has called it a day. She has always been a bit of a winger in the soap and never my favourite character, but I have to admit Wendy Richard as an actress has a record second to none.

Over the years the Fowler/Beale family have moved from a prominent position in the soap and have been eclipsed by the Mitchell’s and Slater’s. In terms of leaving, it was the right decision as her character had more and more a peripheral role and it was difficult to develop storylines on Pauline.

With her departure it will leave only Ian Beale played by Adam Woodyatt as the only original character left. I have to say as a fan for many years of Eastenders, in recent years I have not really watched too many episodes and felt that many characters were sub-standard coupled with very poor storylines. I would not be surprised if it will be gone from our screens within the next decade.
