I don't watch Eastenders.
But some of the characters do fit into the BBC white middle class playbook. Basically, these are the brown people for the white people.
Some of these type of characters have been shown on the BBC and Channel 4 since the 80's.
You have the gay and the taboo relationship with someone from a different religion/colour/culture.
I guess some of these goreh have "curry fever", lol
So thier is Sikh Family in Eastenders who are badly portrayed in very Indian stereotypical manner. the father of the family is in Jail. the Eldest son has Dastar(kheerat) the other 2 sons are mona's . The daughter is a doctor who is bi-sexual and in relationship with a muslim girl. The mother is just pure evil who faked having cancer so her kids would not leave her.
The family run 3 business which are
1) call centre
3)landlords renting houses
amongst this the youngest son is know for doing insurance jobs.
The latest scandal saw Jags go to jail as he was framed (Robbery )insurance job which went wrong which was undertaken by the youngest son. jags was framed and reported to the police by his own mother as he was in love with a Muslim girl.
is too far fetched and does not portray UK Sikhs Punjabis in the right manner. BBC
