Just an idea ive had for maybe one of the landmark Eastenders episodes of the future

WALFORD EAST TERRORIST BOMB
http://i54.tinypic.com/k9xlki.jpg

A Bomb explodes at the Tube Station killing several locals.

It could be the 'tram crash' style stunt and give Eastenders a proper disaster on an epic scale!

A bomb attack in a London tube station, many watchers these days will have a great day with Ofcom.

Though I would love it

Terrible idea, and something that would surely attract thousands of complaints.

EastEnders doesn't do 'disasters' and never has.

The Bill did a really good terrorist attack, but it's a show that reflects crime rather than everyday society (with a bit of added drama).

They attempted this in 1992 with a bomb attack storyline, but it was soon shelved when newspapers revealed it and viewers phoned in to protest against it.

Especially with the London Bombing's, I really don't see it happening.

It's like having an American soap, for example General Hospital which I believe is based in New York or a fictional location modeled on New York and having a terrorist attack. It just wouldn't be acceptable.

1. It would only get ratings high for a few episodes.

2. Yes it would be controversial.

and

3. People would switch off.

and EE can't not afford to loose anymore viewers.

Lots of reasons why this would never happen, there are some subjects that even soaps, baby swapping or not, cant handle.

I'd quite enjoy a big stunt disaster but a terrorist attack is too serious and has too many repercussions to be attempted by EE.
