One of the biggest whodunits in EastEnders‘ history kicked off tonight, focusing on the death of Lucy Beale, and a new trailer has been released to mark the occasion.
In tonight’s episode, Lucy (Hetti Bywater) was shown heading out of the Square alone after receiving an email, with her lifeless body later seen on Walford Common.
The circumstances of Lucy’s death are to be shrouded in mystery with the police initially believing that she has been the victim of a random mugging. However, it soon transpires that Lucy is likely to have known the person responsible for her death.
The trailer features most of the BBC One soap’s cast and has the tagline ‘There’s a killer amongst them’.
Watch it below:
Lucy’s demise was first announced by the BBC in February who stated that the storyline won’t play out as ‘typical whodunit’ and instead will be rooted in a ‘raw and emotional’ reality.
The identity of the killer is to remain a closely guarded secret until the soap’s 30th anniversary next February.
EastEnders airs Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday on BBC One
