|~ Ritchie gives his associate Phil Mitchell a tip-off in the latter's plan to incriminate on his own shooting against their mutual acquaintance Dan Sullivan.|
Ritchie Stringer is a fictional character and minor antagonist from the famous British BBC soap opera drama EastEnders. He was played by the late actor Gareth Hunt who made two appearances in the show from April 10th 2001 to April 12th 2001.
After getting straight answers from his ex-girlfriend Lisa Fowler admitting that he shot him just 5 days ago, Phil Mitchell wants help from Ritchie Stringer, a wealthy big-time mob boss by conspiring against his archnemesis Dan Sullivan for shooting him. Ritchie agrees to help Phil, noting that Dan used to work for him and that he isn't really impressed with Dan.
They both have a brief conversation in his limousine and start preparing for their strategic plan to get Dan incriminated for the shooting. Ritchie has one of his henchmen meet up with Phil to collect the gun that Lisa used to shoot him; the gun had in fact belonged to Phil and Dan's common enemy Steve Owen.
Then Ritchie gets Dan to meet up with him and tricks him into taking the gun under the pretense that he wants Phil to be dealt with. Dan confronts Phil with the gun that Ritchie gave him, but it turns out to be a trap when the police arrive and arrest Dan for shooting Phil. Later on, Dan gets questioned and claims that he was with Ritchie - who along with his unseen girlfriend tell the police otherwise. This results in Dan getting charged for shooting Phil, who in the meantime had also planned to get Steve to conspire against Dan to rid themselves of their shared archenemy.
Months later, Ritchie has another of his goons meet up with Phil over Dan's court appeal. This makes it his last appearance in the show. Being mentioned about Dan appearing in court for his verdict, the judge delivers a "not guilty" verdict on Dan for shooting Phil. Thus making Dan planning to get revenge on Phil and Steve once and for all.
Ritchie tells Phil to not mention his name to authorities about his involvement with the conspiracy. He is later driven away out of Walford and is never seen again afterwards.
