It was and I think it was a wise move to give Faith such a story so soon after arrival
Honestly, I'm finding the Dingles too much right now, especially Debbie who I've always struggled with as a character, but Faith...? Faith is like a breath of fresh air to the Dingle clan. Right from her first episode I've loved everything about her and now with this new revelation, she's quickly becoming a favourite.

I only hope Chas finds out before she the actress goes on maternity leave.

Chas was certainly more forgiving of Shadrach
So this rage and unforgiveness is in part all about the drama between the two women to fit in with Faith's situation. I don't mind that as much and there has been a long gap between the characters last encounters.

I often wonder about Belle whenever she refers to her Granny Clegg. Why would she think of her mother's ex-husband's mother as her granny?

Affectionately? Like how Charity refers to Zak as 'Uncle Zak'.

Debbie, also has always bothered me, I thinks because she always looks like shes in a bad mood, too icy and nothing really redeeming about her either, she makes the same mistakes over and over,
Aaron is the same, I've never warmed to his character, except when he was a cheeky scally lad, its like he's in some permanent drama, I'm not sure if its supposed to keep the characters relevant but Debbie and Aaron do my head in.

Yes, she makes a lot of scrunched up bitter expressions, I can't recall seeing her laugh or even smile. She needs to get drunk and let her hair down, something that doesn't involve scowling at everyone.

I've loved the scenes with Moira & Faith, I really hope they develop a great partnership between these two.

Monday & Tuesday's episodes are two of the best episodes I've seen in a British soap for many, many years.

I was on the edge of my seat thinking Rhona was going to run out during the examination, I'm also really thrilled that she acted so quickly.

Adam was a lad.
Emmerdale has been poor for most of the week. Damn right silly, however I did think tonight's double bill was an improvement. I did enjoy the RobRon scenes. And now Aunty Moira has a bun in the oven. :)

It's been pretty poor for the last several weeks. I think the Ashley story was covering up for a lot. For the first time in years there's little that interests me.

I've really struggled with it too and I haven't been watching that long. It's such a shame because I was really enjoying so much a few months ago.

It is as though the two northern soaps have swapped over with Corrie back on form and on top.
And that swap (and Emmerdale's down hill slide) seems to have coincided with Kate Oates leaving Emmerdale and joining Corrie. Is that a coincidence, or do producers really have that much influence over show quality?

Fortunately Lydia is on hand to save this show. A deeply sexual woman.

Tim sounded very familiar, I wonder who the actor is.

I only just found out today that Nigel Mercier, son of Sheila Mercier, passed away on January 6th this year, at the age of 62, following a battle with cancer.

He worked for many years behind-the-scenes in the TV industry in various jobs, and spent the last few years of his life running a yachting club. RIP!!!

I'm struggling with Emmerdale lately, it's become the RobRon Show and its getting tiring.

Cain and Harriet, meh this pairing seems random, he'll go back to Moira by Xmas.

The show needs to clear house and reinvent itself again or better still bring Kate Oates back.

Really enjoying Evil Emma serving it up to Arthur. He needs to learn a bit of discipline. Also, wasting the time of the ambulance crew was very poor form from the brat. That should come out of his pocket money.

On the up side, Laurel continues to look like the smouldering Sex Goddess Of The Dales that she is.
