Poland: Bloggers React to the Death of Popular TV Show Character

Kominek [pl] summarizes bloggers’ reactions to the death of Hanka Mostowiak [pl], a fictional character of one of the biggest TV hits ever in Poland, a soap opera called “M jak Miłość” (“L for Love”) [en]. In episode 862, Hanka dies in a car accident (as the actress who played her – Małgorzata Kożuchowska – had decided to leave the TV production).
