Now that Mick and Linda Carter are no longer in Stuart Highway’s sights, he’s turned his evil attention elsewhere in EastEnders.

It’s the vulnerable Dr Legg who could be in danger from him, and the doctor has already cottoned on to the fact something is off with him. Harold realises that a photograph of his wife is missing, and he believes Stuart is the one who’s taken it. He desperately tries to tell Dot Branning what’s happened, but there’s no stopping Stuart, he’s got his feet firmly under Dot’s table and has no intention of going anywhere.

Dr Legg eventually plucks up the courage to tell his host what’s happened and Dot is furious. She confronts Stuart and demands he leave immediately, but Stuart has another ace up his sleeve. He knows exactly how to manipulate Dot, and will stop at nothing to protect the new little life he’s made for himself.

Dot later finds him looking for the photo and has no idea he’s only pretending, and she’s won over by his apparent attempt at making things right. The two have a heart to heart and he’s allowed to stay.

But why has he stolen the photo in the first place? Last week we saw Stuart take his wallet and return it with a thinly veiled threat to watch his back. Is the physician in danger from Stuart’s evil ways?
