Where do you see soaps in the upcoming decade and beyond? For me I can see Emmerdale becoming Britian's number one soap usurping Corrie and EE off the top spot for a long time to come and they're both in weird modes at the moment, more so EE which seems either too caught up in the past (mainly the 00s) or just lost in the present. Hollyoaks can carry on what it does best as far as I'm concerned, its a true underdog, yet it keeps moving forward and not too focused on some "Glory Era" even though the 2000-2007 era of the the show really was the best in my opinion Someone posted about Brookside returning, I don't think it ever will, even as a "soap bubble" focusing on certain characters, it ended fifteen years ago and it was starting to become dated even back then, I dong think it has a place in the 2020s As for Eastenders, it needs to get back to basics, not too boring and not too OTT, stop repeating storylines (ie The Mitchell sisters dying in the Xmas period, a year later the Branning sisters face certain death, with one dying this time, which set of sisters next? The Fox sisters? The Carter sisters??) and put to rest the Hardman story for a while.
