Following the last few episodes, you may have realised that there’s a controversial storyline featuring one of the soaps most popular couples – Kat and Alfie Moon – and Ronnie ‘baby swap’ Branning.
The soap has, in the past, told extremely well documented issues relating to very difficult and sensitive situations. For some viewers the SID (Sudden Infant Death) Syndrome lines will bring real anguish.
Twitter has already seen hundreds of comments full of uproar from angry viewers and despite the shows bosses and writers approaching experts at The Foundation for the Study of Infant Deaths, some Parents are outraged and ‘disturbed’ at such a ‘ridiculous’ storyline which is ‘a step too far’.
We are finding it very uncomfortable watching and it seems many others may not tune in to follow the plot as it, hopefully, unravels.
Whilst both parties struggle to cope with their grief of losing their baby boys, and Ronnie coming to terms with stealing someone else’s baby, could the writers have taken this cot death story too far?
