Emmerdale future

I am one of the people who ditched Emmerdale around 2004, during the deadly dull Steve Frost producership period. I returned to the show when the brilliant Gavin Blyth undertook a complete and highly...

Well, hey, judging by the decline in overall EE quality since they set foot back there, I can only deduce that they do indeed have a 'driving' role to forfill...driving the reputation of EE's writers...

Kat and Alfie

It makes me laugh when people on here accuse CS of having one-dimensional cartoon characters.
Do me a favour. Washed-up Kat and 'I have the right to walk back into EE when I choose to' Alfie are...

Gavin Blyth

I have said this on another thread, but I just wish to echo a few others on this poll thread, in regard to Gavin Blyth. He is a sad loss and died so young, just 41, my own age. It was apparently a...

Well I would still site BRIAN PARK as the best Corrie producer of ALL time, as he took the show on at it's lowest ebb ever (end of 1996), when it had a shrinking audience of (as Brian aptly said)...

It was Claire.

She will own up, when she realises that her mate Becky (who is a cracking character, btw) could get banged up for it, when Tracey tells the cops it was Becky who battered her.

Kate Ford

Kate is a very good actress and is a welcome CS returnee.

I tend to think that EE has just become the 'favoured' soap of the 'cool' Indie kid' gang and the Beeb ruthlessly play on this.

Matthew Vaughn's Emmerdale Return

I haven't been a regular EMMERDALE viewer for over ten years, as the pantomime-esque, soap-and-hot-water deprived Dingle clan always put me off my supper! However, I decided to tune back in to see...

Stacey is a sad loss

Stacey has been EE's best character for ages, now.

I am so sad to see her departing the show. EE is going downhill, generally, just now and I feel that losing a quality actress like Lacey will only...

Absurd scripting.

What is Kirkwood thinking off? First he drags back the washed up Kat and smarmy Alfie...then he tries to tell the fans that Roxy has managed to munch her way through 3 MILLION QUID...

I am sure that Lucy was sacked, as she was only in charge for a year. Normally, producers do a two-three year stint, unless they are axed because of poor ratings. As HollyOaks has had a bad spell, I...
