Eastenders pervert storyline

As much as I cannot watch the Eastenders storyline for too long without covering my eyes, I think they are handling a really sensitive issue very well.
The lovely Whitney Dean, played by Shona McGarty is really capturing the essence of a child who has been completely and utterly taken in by her pervert stepdad.
Reading around, there have been a number of complaints about the pre-watershed show
and although people are more than welcome to have their say, I ask: why watch it?
They know it is going to be a sensitive subject - they know how difficult it must have been for the script writers, producers and actors to capture and tackle such an awful subject - so why oh why keep watching and then complain?
Eastenders are well known for tackling these hard-hitting and topical debates and have featured such a wide range of issues, this one was bound to pop up sooner or later.
The BBC received 163 complaints and Ofcom 41.
If you don't like the subject matter and aren't brave enough to face up to what is going on in the world, then close your eyes and don't bloody watch.
Failing that - visit the NSPCC website and take a long, hard look at the reality of today's society.
