I've found a couple of threads about particular characters but was wondering if there was one just for general observations <geek> and if we could have a hands up to see if anyone else cried at Brenda's hair thing. I thought all those tears and smiles looked real <sniff>

Do I need to get a life? blush

Not seen a general emmerdale thread, shall we start one!

Brenda's scenes were very sad, has she really shaved her hair off in real life.

Cameron - does he want Debbie back or is he just playing a game. I think gennie will be his next victim.

And pollard, are they really off. I remember Eric when he was a antique dealer and an and all round shit. Stopped watching for a few years and he come back and he's a pillar of the community

Hello, I'm in ladies, I had a thread about Vanessa but it didn't get many replies, lets make this a general Emmerdale thread, Brenda had her head shaved in real life as far as I know, ye the ceremony was lovely wasn't it.

Cameron is just unbelievable at the moment, I hope Debbie tells Chas and she kicks him out, Gennie is on to them though.

Anyone else finding Laurel a total PITA at the moment, I understand her trauma but it's a bit over acted and she is a brilliant actress but I have gone off her since she got with Marlon.

And back to Vanessa, she is a control freak, and Rhona knows it but needs her for drugs, where is she getting them by the way

Thanks for the thread Exmum

grin Glad you like it, Ellenora <takes a bit of a bow>

Footface, it's annoying when they completely change a character's personality but sometimes a relief if they're a PITA. I hope the Pollard lot aren't all going - there are others I'd rather see the back of first.

Keep an eye on the Cameron story line. wink <taps side of nose>

Wow, that's dedication to your job to have your hair shaved off for it. I know lots of actors do things like that but it's unusual to see it on a soap, is it not? I used to hate Lesley Dunlop because she was in that programme Smuggler with Oliver Tobias (blush I was very young blush) - I wanted to be her. She's grown on me as Brenda and I forgive her now (have you seen him lately grin?). Wee Gennie's got a nice voice. smile

Agree re Laurel.

I'm getting a bit bored with Vanessa/Rhona. I like Paddy, he makes me laugh - could do with a bit more of that.

Ellenora5 Fri 19-Jul-13 18:55:05

Aww I love Paddy aswell, him and Marlon used to make a great double act, and poor Paddy always seem to get left heartbroken.

I'm really hoping Val and Eric aren't leaving, Val is so funny, her one liners are brill.

I only remember Lesley Dunlop from that series May to December, she was also in numerous Kleenex adds. Her and Eric are a couple in real life smile

Ellenora5 Fri 19-Jul-13 18:56:33

Oops meant to say Footface, Eric used to be a corrupt councillor aswell, he really was horrible for years, but I do quite like him now

I`m here grin

I loved the wedding, it was exactly what I would have wanted although perhaps not to Bob, and it was nice that his children managed to get out of their front room, where they seem to reside 100% of the time!

Am I on my own having a secret little thing for Nickil? probably!

Camerons getting right on my nerves now, I wish they would bring the whole storyline to a head, hes going to do Gennie isnt he, which is a shame as I like her, shame it wasnt Laurel or Debbie.

And, will David and Preya actually stay together?

Aha, thats what I remember Lesley Dunlop in, May to December!!!

Footface Fri 19-Jul-13 19:14:30

Wow what a flash back, may to December I was just thinking of that today when I was watching birds of a feather. ( I really don't have a life at the mo)

I really like Amy and Eric's relationship. Very kind and calming.

Can't wait for charity to find out about Archie's baby.

Footface Fri 19-Jul-13 19:15:46

[onestepcloser] no your not on your own there. Although I don't get the whole andy sugden thing

Ellenora5 Fri 19-Jul-13 19:36:45

I don't get the Andy thing either, I really don't think he's that good looking and he always looks like he is sulking, agree about Amy and Eric, he really looks out for her, Footface my life is like yours, I won't say what old repeats I was watching earlier but they were very old....I can't wait for Cameron to be caught and then they can get rid of him altogether, with a bit of luck he'll take the dreadful Debbie with him, I would love to get a scissors to her hair

MissTriangle Fri 19-Jul-13 20:03:26

Can I join? It's utter trash but I have a slight addiction to Emmerdale.
I have heard Gennie is leaving so am presuming that she will be Cameron's next victim. Surely he can't get away with it for much longer though- he must get caught. It is wierd though as it gets forgotten about then randomly dragged up - ie. Alex's Grandma turning up a while back, then bones found etc. He gets on my nerves, all that sulking around.

Definitely agree with the brush to Debbie's hair. It is hideous!

SlatternismyMiddlename Fri 19-Jul-13 20:08:28

I'm in with a vengeance. I love Emmerdale.

I have been on holidays and am currently getting caught up with my sky plus.

Ugh do people really have a thing for Andy? I`d rather Eric in that case!

Now, see I always watch Emmerdale Farm (hee hee) but I`m struggling with Characters I like so:- (spreadsheet, and I`m willing to be swayed)

LIKE
Eric
Amy and Mother
Amys Mothers love interest (whats his name again)
Nickel (mmm)
Val
Paddy
Marlon
Ashley, possibly in small doses
Dingles, all of them apart from....

HATE
Debbie
Andy
Victoria
Vals sister, her bobbing hair does me
Use to like rhona when she was with Marlon, but shes changed
David and Preya

grin

Oooh I'll join. Haven't watched much recently but my friend keeps me up to date.

Lesley Dunlop used to love down the road from My mum and drank in the pub I worked in grin

I think Gennie will be next.

Nikhil is lovely looking onestep but I have it on v good authority that he's a prick

SlatternismyMiddlename Fri 19-Jul-13 20:33:25

Okay - I've just watched the wedding - please tell me that I wasn't the only one with a tear in my eye?

The drugs/Rhona storyline is tedious beyond belief. And, yes I know it's not real life, but how can Paddy as her husband not realise that something is up? He's married to her, she has turned into a complete bitch with unbelievable mood swings and comes out with a string of bizarre excuses for all sorts - and he hasn't noticed anything is up. Or he did ages ago and was satisfied with 'I'm an alcoholic' even though she had shown no previous penchant for hard drinking until 5 minutes ago. And breathe......

yamsareyammy Fri 19-Jul-13 20:36:45

Can I join? Though I am sometimes several episodes behind.
From the list of likes and dislikes, I am hesitant to say,as would' nt like to get anyone fired. I blow hot and cold about Victoria But like val's sister. I am so old that I just remember her in the Liver Birds[no one heard of them I suppose!grin].

Ellenora5 Fri 19-Jul-13 20:53:23

Oh yes the Liver Birds, forgot about that [grins] many moons ago yamsareyammy, (my older sister watched it you understand, not me blush

Ellenora5 Fri 19-Jul-13 20:54:16

Eh what happened to my smileys, they don't look right

yamsareyammy Fri 19-Jul-13 20:57:43

[grins]. And cant see what is wrong with your [grins]

yamsareyammy Fri 19-Jul-13 20:58:47

eh!!! Mine aren't working now. <mutters> Something is wrong at MNHQ!

Ellenora5 Fri 19-Jul-13 21:09:04

Bet they were watching Corrie!!

Sleepyfergus Sat 20-Jul-13 06:54:42

I watch occasionally - watch it ITV2 with subtitles when drying my hair in the morning!

Really fancy Nikhil and love his OCDness. My DH could do with a bit of that! Sad to learn that Gennie is leaving though, I like their little family.

lovelychops Sat 20-Jul-13 09:08:00

Hooray for this thread! I love Emmerdale grin

Really hope Val and Eric aren't leaving, they're my favourites. Love their relationship with Amy. Think Amy's mum is a great character, and think the actor who plays her is great.

Another one finding the Rhona story line boring. Never really warmed to her that much. And that Vanessa, urgh!

I may have had a little tear in my eye at the wedding. What a gorgeous voice Gennie has. I love Gennie and Nikhil, has anyone noticed their cd's are in colour order? Thinking of doing that myself grin

Sleepyfergus Sat 20-Jul-13 11:09:56

I noticed the CDs!! That's why I need Nikhil in my life, to organise me and do lots of other stuff I'd better not admit I fantasise about!

Yes, Rhona story becoming a bit much now. Shame because i quite like her character. Did tou know she and Cain are together (married?) in real life! Don't like Vanessa much, she's crafty.

And Debbie is just awful. Wouldn't miss her. She's been tanning with Tina from Corrie obviously!
