Where to watch classic EastEnders as soap drops to two episodes a week

The coronavirus pandemic has had a big impact on the soap world, with EastEnders, Coronation Street, Hollyoaks and Emmerdale all having temporarily suspended filming.

The lack of new episodes being made has also led to scheduling changes – with EastEnders fans now getting just two episodes a week instead of their usual four.

Of course if you’re missing your usual dose of Albert Square action on Thursdays and Fridays then why not make up for it by reliving some of the soap’s classic episodes instead?

Here’s where you can tune in to classic EastEnders…

How can you watch classic episodes of EastEnders?

The good news is that if you do want to take a fond look back at EastEnders of days gone by you can do so, courtesy of Drama.

The UKTV-owned channel airs classic episodes of the soap every weekday at 1pm and at 1.40pm.

If you miss those you can also catch up with them via the UKTV Play website – where you can stream episodes that have been recently shown (you’ll need to register but that only takes a minute).


Currently the channel is airing episodes from the 90s, meaning you’ve got the perfect chance to see vintage characters such as Michelle Fowler (Susan Tully), Pat Butcher (Pam St Clement) and the Tavernier family – not to mention getting the chance to see a very young Ian Beale (Adam Woodyatt) and Sharon Mitchell (Letitia Dean), and Phil and Grant Mitchell (Steve McFadden and Ross Kemp) back in the days when they had hair.

Alternatively, if you want to check out any particular classic scenes rather than episodes, there’s a whole load of memorable moments over at EastEnders’ YouTube channel – from that Den and Angie divorce scene (recently recreated with Mick and Linda) right through to the moment when Bobby confessed to killing his sister Lucy.

When is EastEnders back on BBC One?

The next episode of EastEnders is on BBC One on Monday night at 8pm.
