Talking about Steve's on-screen role comeback, Sean, a fellow cast mate of Steve from EastEnders, mentioned in an interview,

Phil returns in a moment of crisis for the Mitchells. But he is a changed Phil from the exhausted lion that left the square. Steve McFadden is a mesmerising actor. Every scene he does with absolute commitment and conviction. It’s amazing to watch how he does it. He’s great at rage and pent up aggression, but he was at his most moving after the death of Peggy. And when he told Sharon that he loved her just before he was taken away for his liver transplant on Christmas Day was so touching.

Steve attended 2011's National Television Awards where he talked about his on-screen role, Phil Mitchell's heart attack.

“Within 10 minutes it was like I had never been away and it was lovely to be working with Steve, Tish and Natalie Cassidy again. It was like being with old mates. I didn’t have to think about me and Steve in the old days. To be honest, it was about the history between Lisa and Phil and there is so much water under the bridge with those two people that I kinda just resort back to those storylines."
