The worst characters in the show under Sean O'Connor...































































Coming in JOINT 72ND PLACE....
























































=72. ALEXANDRA D'COSTA AND MADISON DRAKE
Posted Image

Average: 0.57

Alex's Highest Score: 5 (x2: Shut It Tariq, Watts going on?
Alex's Lowest Score: -1 (x4: See You Slater, Derek H, BrightEyes, Kevin's American Cousin)


Commentary
Jamie Fowler – Still not sure which one she is.
See You Slater – I always found her the more despicable of the two. The characters were written like characters from a Catherine Tate sketch and it would usually be Alexandra who started off being mean and then Madison would just add an “innit though”. Cringe.
Cam – Which one is she?
Planck – Uch.
Blokeoptimistic – Lasted six months too long.
Zachary – Do I even have to say?
Shamelessness - The storyline could have worked if the bullies were played by people who could act, and written by writers who knew how London teens speak.
Daniel68 - Far better acted than Madison, but still the character was so vile that I won't remember her positively. How she and Madison made so many appearances I'll never know.
The Local Butcher - Gets a single point for showing that girls can be awful to other girls and that it's not always/just bad men who hurt women.
Stan - THANK GOD THING 1 & 2 ARE OFF OUR SCREENS. I think she was a little better than Madison, but still utterly rubbish. Goodbye!

Madison's Highest Score: 5 (x1: Watts going on?)
Madison's Lowest Score: 0 (x25: Jamie Fowler, Sarah Hills, Jill-Sandwich, Cam, The Discarded Avacado, Amber, Leon, Blokeoptimistic, Derek H, James-Slayer, BrightEyes, Kevin's American Cousin, PrincessSharon, Zachary, Angie's Den, MrJames, Shamelessness, Kelly Minige, McFudd, Daniel68, TellyAddict, Get Outta My Pub, PaulineFowler, Sue Osman, Stan)

Commentary
Jamie Fowler – Still not sure which one she is.
See You Slater – Terrible actress but I found her slightly more bearable than Alex, probably due to the BBC refusing to make a black person totally evil.
Cam – Which one is she?
Planck – Uch.
Blokeoptimistic – Lasted six months too long.
Zachary – No.
Shamelessness - I have written before how they chickened out of making Madison as evil as Alex because of her race. That's the only interesting thing I can think to write about her.
Daniel68 - Horrendous. Not even vaguely well acted and as there was no exploration into why she was the way she was, I never was invested. Another one I'll always associate with the worst ever era.
The Local Butcher - Gets a single point for showing that girls can be awful to other girls and that it's not always/just bad men who hurt women.
Stan - THANK GOD THING 1 & 2 ARE OFF OUR SCREENS. Worse than Alex, just. Eurgh. Good riddance to the both of them.

It's quite fitting they went out together, if I do say so myself. Fun fact: These two were always at the bottom two of the vote.

Aw #TOGETHER4EVER Shame THEY couldn't have drowned in a pool together instead of R&R.

Dammit I wish I added commentary now.

I still can't believe that after months of dominating the screentime they got their comeuppance off screen.

I'm going to boot someone else out now, because I can. Give me a minute.

Massively deflating, yes. But SOC was never one for showing, was he?

Alexandra D’Costa and Madison Drake – Not only the absolute worst characters of the “dark age” known as Sean O’Connor’s era, these two gobshites are potentially the worst EastEnders characters of all-time. It’s a stretch to even call them “characters”, they were simply plot devices that existed to be vile. It says a lot for their lack of characterisation that people on the forum and presumably the general public are still unable to differentiate between them. I’m sure these two are rotting together on the “never going to be seen, mentioned or heard from again” junkpile.

Coming in 70th place, just missing out on the bottom spot thanks to Thing 1 and Thing 2 is...































*tumbleweed*
















70. Kyle Slater

Posted Image

Average: 1.43

Highest Score: 6 (x1: Watts going on?)
Lowest Score: 0 (x14: See You Slater, Jamie Fowler, Jill-Sandwich, Leon, Blokeoptimistic, Derek H, BrightEyes, Zachary, Angie's Den, Kelly Minige, McFudd, Get Outta My Pub, PaulineFowler, Stan)

Commentary
Jamie Fowler
– Duck Lasagne.
See You Slater – He had ONE decent episode in the entire of his time on the show. He was utterly pointless and I’m embarrassed that someone thought he was a good idea.
Cam - Still laugh my ass off that KYLE was the 18 month key secret of Icon Stacey Slater. Oh dear.
Planck – So unbelievably bland.
Blokeoptimistic - Took blandness to a whole new level.
Zachary – No thank you.
Shamelessness - Along with Babe and Claudette, another good axing decision by SOC. The fact he was brought in to tick a box and then they made a point of making him so dull and ordinary, coupled with the actor's obvious lack of talent, meant that the character was not worthy. I wouldn't be against a recast in the future and I'd like to meet Stacey's sisters at some point, but I'm glad boring Kyle got axed.
Daniel68 - I wouldn't have even said he appeared under SOC if I was pressed for an answer. I would've guessed he left maybe May 2016, turns out he was in it til late November. Some of his scenes with Steven were good I think? Hence the one, rather than zero.
Get Outta My Pub - That whole secret key storyline for THIS?!
The Local Butcher – Meh.
Stan - Who? Oh yeah, Stacey’s brother. Dull. Dull. Dull.

This plank of wood was not worthy of Stacey Fowler's heritage. I'm surprised he was THIS low but I'm not surprised nobody cared about him.

Kyle Slater - Kyle was the perfect antidote to the "screaming" Slaters. However, unfortunately for Kyle I prefer my Slaters like I like my curries: fiery and with plenty of substance. He was dull. He was inoffensive to such an extreme that it was almost offensive, mainly as the production team were too scared to characterise him as being anything other than beige so that they could show positive representation of the transgender community. His best episode was with Denise Welch and it was Alison Slater I wanted to see more of afterwards, rather than Kyle.

I'm going to power my way through the first few eliminations because there's still so many characters who are totally dull it hardly makes for a riveting rate when it's obvious they'll be going sooner rather than later. :D

Who 1 and Who 2. How I'll always remember them. I think they actually were an attempt at social commentary for today, which says a lot about how some in touch some in media are...or not. I will mostly remember them for Madison wearing kooky sunglasses on her head and Jay hitting on her, for that bizarre Linzi/Star return which told us Jay is fated to hit on underage girls for all eternity, I guess.

A few days ago I was trying to remember if anyone ever on EE had been named Kyle and I finally remembered him. Beyond that my main memory is him being the valet for the Slater home (that always made me laugh) and that bizarre episode where he started shaking Andy's ladder (and not in the fun way). The late DTC era was some weird shit.

It's hard to predict who could be next. There are so many dull or useless characters SOC wasted time on.

In 69th place...



























OOH CHEEKY! Stop giggling at the back.




































69. PRESTON COOPER
Posted Image

Average:1.66

Highest Score: 10 (x1, PaulineFowler) (I doubt the real Pauline would have been so generous)
Lowest Score: -1 (x3, Kelly Minige, JRT, Stan)


Commentary
Jamie Fowler - Shitty character, shitty person, shitty actor, perfect hair
Jill-Sandwich – Who?
See You Slater – To say he was supposed to be the victim I found him incredibly disturbing and wanted to punch him most of the time. The misogynistic way the women surrounding him were written was appalling.
Cam – 1 point for being hot.
Blokeoptimistic - I didn’t think he was that bad to be honest. I thought the actor was decent enough.
Zachary – Who?
Shamelessness - The storyline was horrible, made even cheaper when he slept with Bex, and the casting of a 23 year old man as a 16 year old boy was a poor decision. At least they got him to attempt the accent though, which is more than could be said about Mark Jr.
Daniel68 - For me, I'll always remember Preston/Michelle as the ultimate worst point of EastEnders. It was painful to watch and I definitely had a few weeks off at that point. Badly acted and barely believable, I hope we never see or hear of Preston again.
The Local Butcher - Worst storyline ever.
Stan - My -1 goes to this mess of a character. I don’t even have the patience to go into why I hate this character and the mess he turned Michelle into. Why did you do SOC? Why?
