BBC broadcast the first episode of the hotly anticipated drama, Redwood on Thursday night and viewers were wholly positive about the Kat and Alfie spin-off.

The BBC1 drama solved its central mystery in its opening hour as Father Dermott Dolan (Oisin Stack) was shown bumping off fellow villager Lance Byrne (Ian McElhinney). Dermott had just been informed by Lance that he was Kat’s biological son, only for the priest to then attack and drown the respected Redwater resident.

Details of the identity of Kat’s son had been kept back from viewers prior to transmission – and fans have yet to see whether Kat herself will find out who her offspring really is.

However viewers watching Thursday nights first edition of Redwater were left a little confused by the timeline of when events took place. Jonathan Cheetham took to Twitter to expose the production error, which allegedly couldn’t have possibly happened as Kat and Alfie were still residents of Walford during the events in Redwater. He dissected the timeline and wrote:

Wait. First scene was 1994. Then we jump 21 years later. That would be 2015. But Kat and Alfie left the Sqaure in January 2016?”

He then followed up his tweet with a second, writing: “1994 + 21 years = 2015 not May 2017 when Stacey remarked Kat just moved to Ireland. Something Back to the Future has happened. #redwater.” The social media user certainly wasn’t the only one who spotted the error.

Mikee Pickles questioned the timeline by saying: “so is #Eastenders set in 2015 then as #Redwater just went from 1994 to 21 years later so 2015 yet kat only told stacey on tuesday.”

Kat and Alfie: Redwater continues next Thursday on BBC1 at 8:00pm
