EastEnders (UK)

Set in the East End of London, the show focuses on the tensions between love and family with stories ranging from hard-hitting social issues, to personal, human tragedies. And there's plenty of funny moments too. Classic characters old and new across thousands of episodes have shared a drink in The Queen Vic, shed tears of despair or joy, sat on Arthur's bench in the Square... and at some point or other they probably crossed paths with Ian Beale.

Character Bio

Dot Branning photo
Dot has a psalm for every occasion, and has certainly needed her faith to cope with good-for-nothing son Nick Cotton. Like the perennial bad penny, her villainous offspring resurfaces again and again, and despite herself Dot always forgives him.
[ul][li]Health issues: Although Dot is a hypochondriac, she was treated for kidney cancer in 2004[/li][li]Vices: Dot smokes menthol cigarettes and drinks sweet sherry on special occasions[/li][li]Dislikes: She's not partial to foreign food and quizzes[/li][li]Likes: Baking, knitting and going to the church[/li][li]Favourite films: Casablanca is one she likes to play again...[/li][/ul] We see a man who'd poison his own mother to steal her bingo winnings - an ex-heroin addict and murderer. But to Dot he's the black sheep, sent to be guided back to the flock.
The other man in her life is a different kettle of fish entirely. Jim Branning was an unlikely match for Dot, but he's proven to be both her soulmate and her salvation. His love brought out her more tender side, especially following his stroke in 2008.
With Jim in care, Dot has found support from an unlikely source - Fatboy - and is fully versed in London street slang as a result.
As timeless as the Queen Vic, Dot's seen hundreds of Walford residents come and go, and good friends pass away – Ethel, Pauline, Pat. Life hasn't been easy for Dot, but she's still standing.
