Soaps copy storylines from each other (and even themselves) and now they are copying cars, pathetic!

Bring back Brookside, at least it had some originality.

Why tax it in advance for a year and then torch it! Presumably it was a substitute car they torched.

They didn’t show any car going up in flames. You just saw some flames in the distance.
