If you're having Walter withdrawal, salvation lies in the most unlikely of places.

Hollyoaks Later is back and this year it's a kind of tribute to Breaking Bad.

The annual week-long festival of post-watershed sex and swearing is on E4 all this week. And this year, the story focuses on Oaks veteran Tony's cancer battle. But let's look at things a little more closely.

The annual week-long festival of post-watershed sex and swearing is on E4 all this week. And this year, the story focuses on Oaks veteran Tony's cancer battle. But let's look at things a little more closely.

The story of Breaking Bad:

Formerly boring family man (Walter White) gets cancer, thinking he's going to die takes life by the horns. In a desperate bid to provide for his family after he's gone, throws caution to the wind, gets involved with gangsters. All hell breaks loose.

The story of Hollyoaks Later 2013:

Formerly boring family man (Tony Hutchinson) gets cancer, thinking he's going to die takes life by the horns. In a desperate bid to provide for his family after he's gone, throws caution to the wind, gets involved with gangsters. All hell breaks loose. But with added Danny Dyer. Uncanny, isn't it?

It's unlikely that Tony will go as far as cooking meth.

Although, this being late night Hollyoaks, there is nothing to stop Ste, Doug, John Paul, Danny, Vincent and George getting a load in and having an after-hours party at the Deli. And actually, we should probably stop giving them ideas.
