Emmerdale: Discussion Thread

I agree they shouldn't do a funeral but Diane, who often visits Annie in Spain, should mention her death. Same for Betty : Victoria could.

 

Mentioning it would be ok, although I do think that Laurel would be more appropriate for Betty. They were almost like mother and daughter.

 

 

It's funny, once upon a time I had a dream that when Annie passed away it would be a perfect time to re-introduce some characters from the past and give the show a new lease on life. Now I just want all my favourites from the past to stay as far away from Emmerdale as possible.

I'm glad Paula spoke up about the show's decay as she was leaving. 

 

 

 

Did she?! That passed me by - tell me more! 🍿

“I did ask Kate Oates, our producer, to not have me murdered,” Tilbrook says. “I was fed up of murders. It’s a very dangerous place to be. You’re better off in the Bronx than Emmerdale village. And she said to me, ‘oh no, of course I won’t’. And she hasn’t. It’s a proper happy ending. Who doesn’t like a happy ending?”

That's brilliant! Thank you.

I don't think Kate Oates would have been stupid enough to even entertain the idea of having Betty murdered.

But then again, if Paula felt it necessary to specifically ask her not to....  :ph34r:

Emmerdale won the BAFTA TV award in the category "soap and continuing drama" last night. The other contenders were: Casualty, Coronation Street and Holby City.

@I Am A Swede thought you'd want to know (or anyone else who wants to read the spoiler) that

per the Eastieoaks blogger that spoils weeks in advance, Annie is going to be killed off. I am really disappointed they are doing this right now with only Victoria on the canvas, and with COVID meaning that not even Kim can be there as Claire King can't return to work. Even the spoiler says basically "Marlon is concerned about Victoria."

I wish I could say that I'm surprised, but I'm not. The Sugden family have been treated like an afterthought for years.

It breaks my heart though to think about the kind of send-off Annie will get compared to the one she deserves..... :(

I wonder if Ryan Hawley (or maybe Karl Davies) will appear as Robert at least? 

But naturally Elizabeth Estensen won't be able to appear,  or Christopher Chittell. And even if they wanted to neither Frederick Pyne nor Jean Rogers will be able to either. (Not that I think that anyone in charge at Emmerdale nowadays would even entertain the idea to include Matt and/or Dolly. It's doubtful they even know how important they were in Annie's life)

 

I will honour Annie in my own way, by watching old episodes on Youtube.

I'm hoping Ryan, Karl, or Kelvin (who seems to still be friendly with people at Emmerdale) will cameo in some way, but the timing is just about the worst. I guess this shows just how little they care - not that we should have expected more.

I knew that realistically this is pretty much what could be expected, but..... there was this part of me that still held out hope for something better. I mean, we're talking about saying farewell to Annie Sugden here. The very heart and soul of Emmerdale.  That is what she is, and will always be, at least to me.
