Who was the father of Vic’s baby in EastEnders?

Conception and childhood characterisation – The conception of Vicki Fowler in 1985 was one of the first controversial storylines featured in EastEnders since its inception that February, as it involved the pregnancy of a schoolgirl, Michelle Fowler ( Susan Tully ).

Exploiting a Whodunit angle, viewers were not initially told who was the father, and press interest in the fledgling show escalated as journalists attempted to guess. The audience finally discovered his identity in October 1985 on episode 66. Written by series co-creator/script-editor Tony Holland and directed by co-creator/producer Julia Smith, it was considered a landmark episode in the show’s history.

Four possible suspects were seen leaving the Square early in the episode: Tony Carpenter ( Oscar James ), Ali Osman ( Nejdet Salih ), Andy O’Brien ( Ross Davidson ), and Den Watts ( Leslie Grantham ). As Michelle waited by their rendezvous point, a car pulled up and the fluffy white legs of the soap landlord’s poodle Roly leapt out of a car and gave it all away: Den Watts had fathered Michelle’s baby.

After this storyline the programme started to appear in newspaper cartoons as it moved more and more into the public mainstream. Baby Emma Henry originated the role and played Vicki until 1988, when her parents moved to Scotland. The role was recast to Samantha Leigh Martin, who learned to call Susan Tully “Mummy Shell” and referred to Letitia Dean who played her mum’s best friend, “Daddy Sharon “.

Tully has commented, “What’s lovely about working with Samantha is that she’s always happy. When it comes to work, she knows it’s playing a pretend game, she knows my real name but she knows to call me ‘Mummy Shell’ when the cameras are running. If she isn’t involved for a couple of weeks, I like to visit her at home, so she’s always relaxed with me.” Tully worried about this when it came to filming scenes in 1989 where Vicki contracted meningitis and was hospitalised and placed in an incubator with tubes attached to her body.

Tully said, ” has seen me in all kinds of situations but I didn’t know how she’d cope if I cried over her”. At Tully’s suggestion, the BBC built a hospital room with minimal equipment and a consultant was present to make sure the BBC had the details correct and that neither the viewers or Samantha would be too distressed.

Tully insisted that the child was not present when she had to film scenes of Michelle sobbing over the incubator. In 1995, after 9 years onscreen being featured in various plot lines such as kidnapping, Vicki was written out of EastEnders, moving to America with Michelle.

Who killed Beale

Who killed Lucy Beale in EastEnders? – Lucy Beale was killed by her half-brother Bobby Beale, In a storyline that gripped the nation, the whodunnit ‘Who Killed Lucy Beale?’ from 2014 to 2015 saw most residents of Albert Square become potential suspects in the mysterious murder of Lucy, whose body was found on Walford Common by passersby.

Ian BealeJane BealePeter BealeCindy Williams, Jr.Max BranningLauren BranningAbi BranningJay BrownLes CokerPam CokerWhitney DeanDenise FoxBen MitchellLee Carter

However, it was clear that the only character who was absent from the Square at the time – as she was incarcerated – was Stacey Slater (Lacey Turner). In 2015, Ian discovered that his wife Jane Beale was involved in Lucy’s death and she soon confessed the truth – that she had moved Lucy’s body, and the real culprit was Lucy’s child half-brother Bobby.

  1. A flashback episode explored the final day in Lucy’s life as she had a series of confrontations with loved ones and enemies before finally returning home.
  2. Jane then returned to the house at Bobby’s request and found Lucy’s dead body.
  3. A panicked Bobby appeared and admitted that he had hit her over the head with her jewellery box in anger but didn’t mean to kill her.

In the aftermath of the confession, the Beale family – including Peter and Cindy Williams, Jr. – agreed to keep Bobby and Jane’s secret. However, this eventually led to Peter and Cindy Jr. leaving Walford. In 2015, Lucy’s former lover Max Branning was wrongfully arrested and sentenced for killing Lucy and was only released once the truth came out the following year.

  • “To Gemma, this was largely as a result of the defendant’s habitual use of cannabis – and its most toxic form, skunk.

“Gemma told a friend ‘He’s permanently stoned. He puts a spliff in his mouth first thing in the morning and doesn’t know what he’s doing’.” He said Miss McCluskie had discovered her brother had left taps on in the sink on Thursday, March 1 of last year and was “exasperated”. Her friends later heard her arguing on the phone with her brother.

  1. Mr Aylett said: “It is clear that Gemma regarded this incident as the last straw and that she wanted the defendant to move out.”
  2. The next day, McCluskie sent his sister a text pretending she was still alive and ending “Love ya xx”, the court heard.

Who killed his sister in EastEnders?

Lucy Beale’s death on EastEnders – what happened and why Bobby killed her EastEnders’ Bobby Beale will recall his sister Lucy’s murder in upcoming scenes, but what happened to Lucy and how did she die? Eastenders revelation: Jane finds out who killed Lucy Beale ‘ Bobby Beale is once again forced to face his past in new scenes on the soap, and there will no doubt be more of this to come.

  1. Cindy Beale was recently confirmed to be returning to the show, so will she confront her daughter’s killer? Bobby has feelings for newcomer Anna Knight on the show, and he decides to tell her what he did to his sister back in 2014.
  2. Of course, they have no idea that Anna is the sister of Lucy, as they share the same mother.

Anna doesn’t know that her mother Rose Knight is in fact Cindy and that Bobby, while they aren’t related, shares a sister with her. So will she think differently about Bobby’s actions once she realises it was her half-sister who was killed? What actually happened to Lucy in 2014? Viewers who watched back then will know there was a massive whodunnit when Lucy was found dead in the woods.

It was confirmed she was murdered, and a list of suspects were formed. The story actually ran on for around two years, while fans learned the killer’s identity in a huge episode in 2015. The shocking revelation saw flashbacks to the moments Lucy faced her killer and was murdered, before her body was discovered by another family member.

Bobby, who was around 11 years old at the time, was announced as Lucy’s killer. EastEnders’ Bobby Beale will recall his sister Lucy’s murder ( BBC/Jack Barnes) He killed his sister by accident, and actually somehow didn’t realise what he had done. Flashbacks confirmed that Lucy was sitting in the living room writing a note to her dad Ian Beale when Bobby disturbed her.

  1. Lucy had been struggling recently and had turned to drugs, while she also made an enemy of a number of residents.
  2. Lucy was trying to make amends, but when she told young Bobby to go back to sleep he got angry, believing she was being mean to him again.
  3. Bobby picked up her jewellery box which she stored her drugs in, and he struck her over the head, killing her instantly.

Lucy fell to the floor, only to be discovered by her stepmother Jane Beale shortly after. As she found the body, Bobby eerily stepped out from the shadows still holding the weapon, claiming Lucy “had started it” in terms of their row. Following this he seemed to have no idea Lucy was dead, while Jane moved the body to the woods and covered her stepson’s tracks.

The next day Lucy was found and a murder investigation was launched, and Bobby had no clue he was the killer they were looking for. A year after fans found out Bobby was the killer, he too realised what he’d done after Dennis Rickman Jr overheard a conversation about it and spilled the beans. Bobby began lashing out, violently attacking both Dennis and Jane before he confessed to Lucy’s murder and handed himself in to the police.

Since then, Bobby has been released and he moved back to Walford in 2019. He has been haunted by his crime ever since and shows remorse for his actions, devastated that he killed his sister. He confesses to Anna in upcoming scenes that he struggles to talk about his sister – but he may well have to soon when Lucy’s mother rocks up in Walford.
