» I brought you some breakfast! Don’t say I don’t do anything for ya.
» Well, that is very thoughtful, Steven. There is something else you can do for me.
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.

Reblogging myself as it’s now four years since Brendan’s arrival in Hollyoaks, back in 2010
Thank you to itsstendanbaby for letting me know 3 October 2012 had disappeared from DM. I’ve reuploaded it. It’s a good one so worth a rewatch! If you spot any others that have disappeared let me know.
Seriously who doesn’t love this episode? It’s Brendan at his best - scheming, funny, manipulative, sexy, devilishly charming and a layer of vulnerability underneath it all. Brendan does everything in his power to convince Ste to stay in Hollyoaks including making him seethe with jealousy, convincing him not to leave his kids and setting up Noah for a huge failure. Can’t believe this aired over three years ago.
There’s a link to these playlist on the homepage incase you lose this link.
Ah, I can only help you to watch on DailyMotion and suggest something you might be able to download with. I can’t offer you any higher download quality - sorry. There are a few users who have some HD episodes (brendanbradys, winthisbattle, memorieswarm (me!)) and some have already been uploaded if you check the ‘stendan’ tag.
The Channel 4 date is 1st November 2013 but I’m afraid I don’t have a link to watch it. Hope that helps.
When a fandom spans a long period and you jump aboard a ship mid-way through or when it’s finished you can sometimes miss little nuggets of behind-the-scenes facts which make the story so much better. And if you’ve been on the ship from the start, clutching your OTP and whispering “my babies” into the night you will hold these snippets of information to your chest with adoration.
So for the new Stendan fans, the veterans, the curious and the virgins I present The Ultimate Guide to Stendan offering as much information on the two and a half year phenomenon. I hope you enjoy.
I have tried to include a ‘source’ where possible, however sometimes you’ll just have to take my word for it. Information comes from my big ol’ memory, articles and interviews, old tweets or from conversations with Emmett.
Part One: Early Beginnings & Secret Sexuality
The closest episode I could get to a summer holiday one! Brendan even wears his blue summer shirt! Although like most of Brendan’s life, it’s not the happy summer day it could be. Brendan’s made a promise to join Ste and the kids, with estranged son Declan, to a trip to Disneyworld Florida. But he’s torn between his heart and his fears and can’t go through with it. The scene in the car is such a powerful moment - it always gets to me seeing Brendan’s struggle.
Why won’t you leave me alone?
Then I’d be alone too.
When you starve I will feed you, when you are sick I will tend you. Forever is cold and hard and final.
With lots of new fans discovering Brendan Brady for the first time I thought I’d choose an episode that was one of the first that grabbed my attention way back in 2010. A personal favourite of mine! It’s not a hugely remarkable episode but for me it made me think “Ooh hang on, am I sensing some sort of sexual tension?”* (pleased to find out it wasn’t just in my mind!) and immediately Brendan and Ste had an interesting dynamic. It sets up the foundations of their relationship well - from manipulation, dodgy dealings and mutual understanding about fatherhood.
