BBC producers have defended Friday’s episode of EastEnders in which Bobby Beale attacked Jane and she was left unconscious.
The terror teen, who has already killed his sister, Lucy, brutally attacked Jane with a hockey stick, leaving her unconscious with blood smeared across Stacey and Martin’s wedding cake.
Many viewers were shocked at the level of violence and the way it played out before the watershed on BBC One.
@BBC I think the writers/producers of Eastenders have lost their marbles. The recent events before the watershed are disgraceful. Get a grip

A BBC spokesperson told the Mirror: “EastEnders is a fictional drama and our millions of regular fans who tunie in each week know and expect dramatic storylines.
“However, we are always mindful of our time slot in which we are shown and we ensure all scenes are editorially justified.
“The scenes in question were the crescendo of a long running storyline that has shown Bobby to have previous violent tendencies.”
The Bobby storyline is looking to reach a end with furious Bobby tipped over the edge when he found out that he wouldn’t be returning to boarding school.
EastEnders airs weekdays on BBC One.
