In episode four of 'Gavin & Stacey', Smithie coaxed Gavin and his parents into a game of "Marry, Cruise, or Shag" in which you're given the names of three people and you have to decide which one you would marry, which one you'd take on a cruise (but with no sex), and which one you'd just shag.

Smithie said Sonia of 'EastEnders' would be his choice to shag.

The prime-time soap from the UK is not something I haven't seen before as a Zonk, and I know I've brought it up here at "Inner Toob" in the past.

Here's just a partial list of all the TV shows that mentioned 'EastEnders' when they should be sharing the same TV dimension:

"Inspector Morse"



"Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Deadly Bees"

"Spaced: Beginnings"

"Little Britain"

"Only Human"


"Red Dwarf: The Tank"

"Gimme Gimme Gimme"

"Hot Metal"

"Doctor Who"

And I'm not just talking about that Children in Need story in which many of the former Doctors met charactes from 'EastEnders', either. In the story "The Impossible Planet", the Doctor said, "This'll be the best Christmas Walford has ever had".

I'm thinking the Toobworld TV show of 'EastEnders' is a docudrama about the real life residents of that neighborhood, since specific actors - like Ross Kemp in 'Extras' - are linked to particular roles. It's probably the only way to disable the Zonks.
