EastEnders’ Dot Branning in danger of Stuart Highway’s evil scheming

EastEnders bully Stuart Highway steps up his evil scheming next week as Dot Branning begins to catch wind of his unsettling behaviour.

While Doctor Legg – played by actor Leonard Fenton – has been suspicious of Stuart for a while now, things hit boiling point after he discovered that the villain had stolen a picture of his late wife.

In upcoming scenes, as he tells his close friend Dorothy about Stuart’s actions, she confronts him immediately and demands he packs his bags and leaves her house, where he has been lodging.

However, it isn’t long before Stuart is manipulating the elderly Walford resident again, as he later pretends to search for the photograph as Dot arrives home.

Doctor Legg has also been staying at Dot’s due to his ill health, returning to Walford with the tragic news that he had pancreatic cancer and had opted to refuse further treatment.

When Stuart discovered that the former GP would also be lodging alongside him, he was less than impressed, leading some viewers to speculate that he had a darker plan for Dot.
