EastEnders viewers are in for a treat this year as BBC iPlayer continue to expand the catalogue of the show’s classic episodes. 

BBC iPlayer is already home to a great offering of classic EastEnders episodes from 2008 – 2011, and this is set to get bigger as the entire EastEnders collection for 2012 will be made available to stream on Tuesday 25th March.

Subsequent monthly uploads will follow for the duration of the year so that by Christmas Day 2024, viewers will be able to stream over 2,000 episodes with the entire EastEnders collection from 2008 to the present day available.  


During those 16 years, iconic EastEnders families such as The Mitchells, The Beales, The Carters, The Fox-Truemans, The Brannings and The Slaters delivered big drama week in, week out. This archive is packed full of beloved characters, huge storylines and unmissable moments, so there’s plenty for new and regular viewers to explore.  


Chris Clenshaw, Executive Producer, says: “We’re thrilled that BBC iPlayer are expanding their collection of EastEnders episodes so that our viewers can enjoy a look back at some of the show’s most iconic storylines as we honour its rich history and its gripping characters...

"Viewers will be able to rewatch their favourite characters and relive their favourite moments, such as Who Killed Lucy Beale?, Peggy’s heart-breaking death, Stacey’s post-partum psychosis and Kathy’s jaw-dropping return from the dead.”  


Dan McGolpin, Director of BBC iPlayer and Channels, said: “It’s fantastic to see EastEnders in such great form for 2024 and this is generating strong demand from viewers to enjoy earlier episodes on BBC iPlayer.  I’m delighted that we’re able to add all of 2012 by the end of the month and we’ll have more than 2,000 episodes available by Christmas.” 

EastEnders is available on BBC iPlayer.
