Trivia

In the episode broadcast on July 24, 2006, Val Lambert visits Noreen Bell's house for the first time since Noreen was killed in the blast. She picks up a television magazine turned to the day of the disaster. While most of the schedule is as would normally be expected on a Thursday night, the 7pm slot on ITV shows a program called Castle Bridge rather than Emmerdale. The magazine also schedules The Bill (1984) at 8pm, where it would normally be broadcast, however, for this week only, it was actually replaced with PokerFace. See more »

Brilliant Soap. The only one there is
1 September 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Emmerdale is by far the best soap on TV. The story lines are not far fetched and ridiculous but not weak and boring. All the characters have their own uniqueness and the whole show oozes charm and cosiness. The recent storyline of Katey and Grays baby had me captivated all the time it was running.

I think this show is often pushed aside when bigger soaps operas like Eastenders and Coronation Street are thrown into the picture. But really Eastenders has dried up and is pity full to watch, And Coronation Street never really captured my attention.

Emmerdale is a cheerful, sweet, easy going soap opera and should be around for a long time to come. God willing.
