Trivia

Playwright and creator Kevin Laffan approached the task of penning the first three months of the series "as a 26-episode play [leaving] the end open so that it could continue." He had initially worried over tackling the project, fearing it may damage his career. See more »

User Reviews

Fantastic acting and varietive storylines in each episode
24 February 2001 | by (Wales) – See all my reviews

Emmerdale, shown by the UK viewing figures, is extremely popular, and rightly so. It perfectly creates the right atmosphere existing in country villages to this day (I should know). The highlight of it all is Samantha Giles, who plays the colourful and quite humorous Bernice Thomas, the landlady of the village's boozer, the Woolpack. Where you want humour, a scene springs up with the antics of the Dingle family. Where you want some drama, there are scenes on the Emmerdale Farm and in the nearby Home Farm: It gives a wide special spectrum, entertaining all in the process.

Don't miss it!
