This 2013 episode sees Brendan out for revenge when Brendan finds out that Joel didn’t kill Seamus like Brendan had asked. It features some excruciatingly tense but excellent scenes between Brendan and Seamus where it seems like Seamus has a pretty good idea Brendan was behind his attack. There’s a great scene too where Brendan is pained about being Seamus Brady Mark 2 when Ste works out the real reason behind Seamus’s disappearance.

Today’s jaunt to the past finds us with Hollyoaks late-night spin off King of Hearts. While this didn’t give us dark or sweary adventures for Mr Brady, we did get to see him drive around and cackle brilliantly in a taxi, wear an eye mask, call the Rhys/Jacqui coupling ‘adorable’ (it was) and sniff his money. Plus it was the first time he wore the infamous leather coat (which was raffled in 2013 and raised an amazing £5,000 for the NSPCC). Besides all this, who can resist a reminder of cockney gangster Danny Houston who just a few weeks later got hammered to death by our Brendan. Enjoy!

Rediscovered an episode I’d not watched in a while the other day and it’s a good one so I thought I’d pick it. It’s one of the first times viewers saw some genuine vulnerability from Brendan (although they liked keeping the audience guessing who the arsonist was hence the evil grimace near the end!). Interesting to see this at a time when Brendan’s killing slate was clean. Other Brendan trademarks to look out for: entering a room without a key and casual littering. Enjoy!

I had a slight panic this morning as it seemed as if 400+ videos had been removed from DailyMotion (as you’ll know the frozenstrawberries account and playlist contains Brendan’s entire storyline) but good and bad news:
Good news: the videos are still there
Bad news: the videos are now “age restricted” so you will have to TURN off age gate (click here)
Sorry for the inconvenience. It’s a simple step but a pain. Unfortunately I can’t do anything about it. I don’t understand why you now have to be a certain age to watch, but I’m relieved at least that they haven’t gone completely.
Another convention date for your diaries: Wigan Comic Con, 7th December 2014, Emmett will be attending as a guest.

I guess I’m done????
Emmett Scanlan appearing as a guest at Scream Con
Held 1st November 2014 in Tynemouth. All the details about Scream Con can be found here:
It’s just over 4 years since Brendan first rocked up onto screens and to this very day people are loving and discovering him! With firsts in mind I thought I’d go for this absolute classic episode: Brendan playing Ste until he makes a move. King of manipulation Brendan sets the scene perfectly and how Ste is oblivious to the old arm-around-the-sofa-just-the-two-of-them trick I’ll never know. This is the perfect example of just how good Emmett and Kieron’s onscreen chemistry is. A must-watch.
I hear you, anon! It’s been 17 months for me and I’m still not over it.
I’m thrilled that so many new people are discovering the story, especially ITF fans. There are loads of Brendan fans on tumblr that will happily welcome you - just check out the tags!
