The central focus of EastEnders is the fictional Victorian square Albert Square in the fictional London Borough of Walford. In the show’s narrative, Albert Square is a 19th-century street, named after Prince Albert (1819–61), the husband of Queen Victoria (1819–1901, reigned 1837–1901). Thus, central to Albert Square is The Queen Victoria Public House.
It’s one of the longest running soaps in the UK.
There are 18 queer characters listed for this show; none are dead.
