DEADLY BORING..

Byline: Kevin O'Sullivan

DESPITE widespread apathy, Albert Square's Cockney rabble trundle on with the life-sapping saga of Who Killed Archie? Who gives a toss? While potential murderers Phil, Ian, Bradley and the gang hint furtively at their guilt, the absurd DCI Marple - sorry Marsden - keeps arresting bunny-boiler Ronnie (right) without a shred of evidence.

"I've spent 20 years building a career on hunches," bragged Miss Marsden. Yeah, and you've made it all the way to Walford nick. A real high flyer!

With the all-singing all-dancing EastEnders live 25th anniversary episode looming, the Beeb's overhyped Archie-bargy dirge is too inanely implausible to be even remotely compelling. It's the ungripping whodunnit the whole nation isn't talking about.

For infinitely superior soap nonsense, tune into Coronation Street where cobblestones alky Peter Barlow has hit the bottle again. With hilarious results.

And good to see cash-strapped ITV tightening the purse strings for crazy Joe McIntyre's alarmingly cheap-looking Lake District drowning drama... which must have cost at least 35 quid to shoot.

Another water-based death for another of gormless Gail's loser husbands. Marry this woman at your peril.
