And I think the actor who plays Debbie has been brilliant over the last 2 weeks. There are some really great storylines around Carl's murder. I haven't enjoyed it this much since I first started watching it about 2 years ago.

usualsuspect3 Fri 26-Oct-12 11:42:31

I'm enjoying it too. I wonder what will happen to Chaz.

Emmerdale is my favourite soap! If it doesn't win awards this year I will be cross. Cameron is a nasty piece of work but I think I'm in love with Cain ( swooooon)

usualsuspect3 Fri 26-Oct-12 11:58:07

Cain is my crush too, Emmerdale is the only soap I watch. Cameron just skulks about looking all mean and moody .

Cain is gorgeous! As is his real life wife, she's my new female crush.

Emmerdale's the only soap I watch

Olbasoil Fri 26-Oct-12 12:11:19

Ah now I do have a problem with Rhona , she was / is very nasty to Marlon!!

Yeah Rhona is quite nasty to Marlon at the moment. But Zoe who plays her is luffley grin

Cain and Charity seem to be getting on well of recent

Also loving Emmerdale at the moment.

Cameron and his 'squinty eye' acting makes me laugh, he squints to portray every emotion.

Think the little girl who plays Sarah does a fantastic job and Cain must be the hottest grandad out there surely!

Another one here that's really hooked on the Emmerdale storyline just now.

It's driving me nuts that the police have arrested and charged Chas with murder, but they haven't actually realised that her story is she only hit him once then ran, whereas his head was bashed in with many blows from the brick. She would then realise she didn't kill him.

Or am I taking this too seriously? blush

Chas does go to court for it <<taps nose knowingly>>

jessiegee Fri 26-Oct-12 17:23:48

Mynameis I'm glad I'm not the only one who winces at the guy who plays Cameron's 'eye acting'! He sort of opens them a bit too wide and then goes stare-y in a sort of cold, shark-eyed, slightly surprised way. He does it for EVERYTHING doesn't he? To show passion, anger, shock, disappointment. And he does a sort of gulp too when he's shocked! It's very irritating. I know what you mean about Cain. And when he's interviewed he comes across well in RL. I can't believe poor Chas is going to get sent down for this. Surely the law of all soaps can't/won't let her?!

I don't know yet the outcome jessie, she may get orf grin

jessiegee Fri 26-Oct-12 17:28:42

I hope so. She CAN'T take the rap MissKeith

Whooooosualsuspect Fri 26-Oct-12 17:30:58

Maybe shes doing panto or summat so needs some time off from Emmerdale?

They often disappear around Christmas for a bit.

jessiegee Fri 26-Oct-12 17:48:24

That's true Whooo. She's remanded on bail till the court case which they could drag out for a fair while - just long enough for her to don her thigh boots and shout 'Oh no it isn't' etc till at least February.

griphook Fri 26-Oct-12 20:01:25

Emmerdale is great the mo, I think it picked up with the Jackson story line and been great since then.

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

Anyone else really not like Katie?

Hmm you could be right there actually Usual & Jessie wink I think the court scenes are due to air just after christmas so maybe Chas and her boobies have blagged a panto slot somewhere. She's not leaving Emmers though, that much I do know.

Whooooosualsuspect Fri 26-Oct-12 20:08:21

Katie is a bit whiney

She definately does some visiting in prison scenes <taps nose knowingly> But that could just be when she's on remand

borninnotts Fri 26-Oct-12 20:51:44

gonna miss Carl though ~ he was a fitty :'(

jessiegee Sat 27-Oct-12 11:09:06

Feel ambivalent about Katie. She's not got much of a personality on show. There are going to be 4 new characters soon I read in the paper. A mechanic and his daughter and Bernice and her lover. I hope they're more interesting than Ali and Ruby & co. Though I'm starting to quite warm to them and they're not annoying me as much these days. Anyone else finding them a bit less irkome? Oh gosh if/when Charity finds out about Jai and Rachel - I dread to think what will happen to poor old Jai? You don't mess with the Dingle's!

mynameis Sat 27-Oct-12 11:18:35

I was hoping Bernice would be back to get it on with Ashley and develop her relationship with Gabby. That would hack Laurel right off grin

<not a Laurel fan>

There's also a new fit vet coming but I think he's only in for a few episodes

mynameis Mon 29-Oct-12 19:20:39

Blimey how old are Thomas and Anya supposed to be now?

Olbasoil Mon 29-Oct-12 20:20:48

I'm not sure, I think they were last on about 3 years ago for Carl's wedding to Chas. They have certainly grown up.
I'm trying not to think about Lizzy & Dan .... old enough to be his Granny !

tiggyfours Tue 30-Oct-12 13:06:21

Think they got it wrong with Thomas and Anya, could of sworn they only looked 8 and ten last time they were on! They looked nearer 20! But loving everything else, even Edna's Mr james usage!

jessiegee Tue 30-Oct-12 15:15:26

I was v shocked at Thomas and Anya. I've only been watching Emmerdale for 2 or 3 years and last time they were on they looked about 10? I know kids have huge growing spurts but this is ridiculous. What about Debbie setting fire to Cameron's stuff and busting his van windows then?! Eeek And Charity and Cain getting back into Bonnie & Clyde mode to plan revenge on Cameron. The guy is going to be mince meat soon with all those Dingle's baying at his heels.

Olbasoil Tue 30-Oct-12 17:11:16

Hmmm don't know about that, has Cain lost.his edge since Zac beat him half to death. The body is willingly but his mind isn't . I want Marlon & Paddy to kiss & make up .... Maybe get rid moany old Rhonda. Little Leo can stay , I love the way he face lights up when the camera is on him .

Just catching up on the episodes i've missed. Agree that I don't know if Cain could do anything, he seems a bit calmer almost.

Leo is the best character in Emmerdale grin

jessiegee Tue 30-Oct-12 17:36:21

Cain does seem a little less of a devil since Zak beat seven bells out of him but I still think he's capable of taking on Cameron. I don't want Marlon and Paddy to make up. I think Paddy is a knob and Marlon deserved much better from his friend. I hate Paddy and Rhona. Pair of whingy pests. Leo is a cutie. He's possibly the only child on Emmerdale who isn't a PITA. Oh actually I forgot about Arthur. He's not a PITA.

Olbasoil Tue 30-Oct-12 17:49:54

Arthur is lovely , unlike his sister, isn't Bernice suppose to be coming to sort her out. Agree Paddy is a knob but he redeemed himself when Arron came. Cain could easily sort Cameron out, but I don't think his mindset is up to it. To think I use to have a life !!!

I don't mind Paddy and Rhona too much, Laurel bores me. I may have a vested interest in them though wink
Gabby is awful, wonder when Bernice will arrive? And that Anya girl is horrible too

Olbasoil Tue 30-Oct-12 17:56:03

Your not related to them are you ??

mynameis Tue 30-Oct-12 18:02:31

<saddo> looked up Thomas and Anya apparently she was supposed to be 4 when first appearing in 2004, so would now be 12. She's looking way older than that!

I do love Charity and Cain plotting together, evil but entertaining to watch grin

Gingefringe Wed 31-Oct-12 18:08:24

I love Emmerdale and have been following it for about 2 years now. Still don't understand the family connections though? Could someone enlighten me about the Dingle family tree? Also who are Gabbie's grandparents?

Thanks

Slatternismymiddlename Wed 31-Oct-12 20:03:09

Gabby's parents are Ashley and Bernice. Bernice's parents are Rodney and Diane. I don't think Ashley's mother is alive and his dad is Sandy.

The Dingles are a lot more complicated.

Cain and Chas are brother and sister and their dad was Shadrach but it later came out that Zach was actually Cain's dad. Shadrach was also the biological father of Gennie which makes her Chas's sister.

Charity and Cain are direct cousins and have been on and off as a couple.

Marlon is also a cousin (and has copped off with both Charity and Chas in the past when drunk).

Lisa is Zach's second wife and their only child is Belle (born at Christmas).

Zach also had a son Butch who died and I think a daughter Tina who also died but that was before I started watching so not sure.

Sam is also Zach's son and he was married to Alice, they had a son, Sampson, but Alice later died.

When did Cain and Moira Barton get so friendly again? He ripped her off over the car and split Moira and John up over their dodgy affair. confused

And Gabby- can't stand her muleish little face. (I know it's not king to think ill of a child though)

Olbasoil Thu 01-Nov-12 08:10:26

Zak's. sons Ben & Butch died. Tina is still alive.
Cain & Moira have this love / hate thing going on
Gabby is horrible ( I'm sure she's lovely in rl)

mynameis Thu 01-Nov-12 10:35:58

Didn't relations thaw a bit between them when he helped Holly after her overdose?

Think they are going to get it on again.
Lucky Moira envy

jessiegee Thu 01-Nov-12 14:59:02

Thanks for the family tree slattern. I only started watching about 2 years ago as well, and couldn't work out what Rodney and Diane were to do with Gabbie. Is Rodney Nicola's Father? I get so confused with this bunch.

Rodney is Bernice and Nicola's dad. Bernice's mum is Diane and Nicola's mum is someone called Maureen. Rodney also has a son called Paul that he had with Val (Diane's sister)

jessiegee Thu 01-Nov-12 19:34:15

Ah ok. Complicated! Thanks Fatima smile

Slatternismymiddlename Thu 01-Nov-12 23:22:47

There have been more various Dingles over the years. Does anyone remember Delilah, she and Paddy nearly got it on? and of course who could forget Mandy Dingle. Another cousin and cousin coupling when she was with Butch before she got together with Paddy.

deleted203 Thu 01-Nov-12 23:26:47

Anyone else reckon Cain and Charity are heading back together? Possibly when news of Rachel's baby dad finally gets out?

I think they're definitely heading closer.
He told her he still loved her when he was going off the rails before Zak nearly killed him didn't he?

usualsuspect3 Thu 01-Nov-12 23:30:29

I think Cain and Moria are on for a bit of shagging, lucky her.

My emmerdale source is back from their holiday, goin to have to try find out some more gossip smile

Olbasoil Sat 10-Nov-12 11:44:02

YESSSSSSSSSSSSSS! Marlon and paddy love each again grin
Bet sour puss Rhona is going to love that

Oh no! Marlon's poor doggy sad

Olbasoil Sat 10-Nov-12 11:49:56

She will live, super vet is on to it, it would have died if Rhona got her mitts on it. Do you have any more gossip from your source Fatima?

zeeboo Sat 10-Nov-12 11:53:31

Fatima, are you maybe the mother of an Emmerdale littlie?

WhatTheFookIsGangnamStyle Sun 18-Nov-12 00:08:47

Carl King's kids Tom and Anya what was that age jump about? 1, 2 skip a few 99, 100. Hope Jimmys little sister buggers off soon. What a bore. Wonder if Nicola will continue to work for Katie and Declan now her hubby owns the business. Priya is a crap actress hope she buggers off soon as well.

I adore Cameron, he is the reason i watch Emmerdale. Dominic Power who plays him used to be in The Bill which is where i developed my "pash"!!! grin
I even follow him on Twitter.............[stalkerish]

jessiegeesusinamanger Sun 18-Nov-12 17:35:39

I think Cain's about to take a pop at Cameron for not leaving Debbie alone! I agree whatTheFook that the actress playing Priya is dire. And the guy playing Dad Sharma is atrocious too imo. Both characters seem utterly pointless. I wonder if Nicola will continue at 'The Big House' too. If not how are her and Jimmy going to put food on the table. There are some really great stories at the moment for sure.
