"When the pensioner reveals that she’s about to emigrate to Madeira, a lovestruck Charlie decides to take her hint and follow his heart by heading to the Portuguese shores, much to mother-in-law Mo’s dismay" What garbage … but some people like it EASTENDERS

Slightly less sad, this for the bird spotters RED-BILLED TROPICBIRD

But even more sad, the church postcard spotters found IGREJA – PORTO DA CRUZ Can you believe that somebody actually has a website dedicated to postcards of churches …

  1. If they film here we could accommodate some of the cast…..sometimes we get a “rouge” cable signal and it appears on our TV! Tobi, e-mail the BBC and offer your services …… bom dom bom bom dom bom …….

  2. Oh Dear – I gave up Eastenders years ago – now I shall have to watch and see what happens – hey we might all get a visit from the Stars … or should be call them has beens – whatever I am sure they get paid well!

  3. If he most miserable programe on TV is having its likewise actors on Madeira it can only be for the Fado.
    Look out poor old Madeira, downhill from now on I’m afraid

  4. They wont be coming here to film i dont think , it just sounds like the character Brenda Boyle is leaving the show , and the story line will be that she is off to Madeira, at least millions watch the show and will put Madeira in their minds for a holiday , so can only be good for tourism.

  5. Andres:

    a. We are not all from London, FAR from it.
    b. We are not all ageing.
    c. We are not stereotype.

    We are permanent residents fully integrated in our local community.
    And happy.
