EastEnders: Phil’s stalker mystery to be solved over Christmas!

by Lynn Connolly

As fans of EastEnders of course know, the Who’s Stalking Phil plotline has been running for some weeks now, with everybody wondering who it is that’s so close to the Mitchell family, they’re taunting them right under their noses but escaping detection…

There are lots of suspects, from Mandy Salter (Nicola Stapleton) to Jack Branning (Scott Maslen) and Phil’s son Ben (Joshua Pascoe), but the wait to find out who the tormentor is is nearly over.

The BBC have released a brief synopsis for the episode that airs on the 27th December, which reads…

It’s the morning after the night before and the residents of Albert Square are all still trying to comprehend the events of Christmas night and the damage that’s been done.

Meanwhile, Shirley [Linda Henry] confronts Phil’s stalker, but with all the other commotion happening on the Square, how long will it take her to reveal their identity to Phil?

Elsewhere, Derek finds himself an unexpected new apprentice in Liam, but how will Pat react when she sees the two of them working together in the Square?

And as rumour has it that Phil (Steve McFadden) is to be injured in the B&B blaze that’s to claim the life of Yusef Khan (Ace Bhatti) and disfigure Tamwar Masood (Himesh Patel) it may be some time before he’s well enough to deal with whoever the tormentor is.

Do you have any idea who it is yet? I’m completely baffled – my theory on who it could be changes on a daily basis, but I guess if I was forced to guess, I’d still go for it being Ben.

Anyway, let’s take a look at the moment the fire rips through the B&B…
