Christmas moments: Someone's killed off!

This Christmas moment takes us back to last year's Text Santa appeal. Mince pie overload, food comas and the dreaded choccie chugging spells the end of a healthy diet and well-fitting clothes. But in the world of soap, Christmas is much more fatal. The holiday season means the inevitable character kill-off. Is anyone safe?

Christmas moments: 2007 in Emmerdale!

This Christmas moment takes us back to 2007 and sums up a dramatic year in the Village: Diane’s almost-affair with Billy and her split from Jack, Rosemary's murder, Matthew's release from prison and Perdy's leaving of Grayson (but not without consequences later on...)

Christmas moments: 1977 in Emmerdale!

This Christmas moment takes us back to 1977 with a very vintage clip of Steven (played by Tim Healy no doubt!) rehearsing his lines for the parish Christmas play. We don't think Steven would be cracking the West End nowadays with that memory (or that jacket).

Christmas moments: Who killed Tom King?

This Christmas moment goes back to 2006 to the highly controversial and much talked about murder of Tom King on Christmas Day. The poor sod was getting ready for his wedding to Rosemary Oakwell when he was hit over the head and pushed from a window - but who did it? (Not-so-spoiler alert: It was his own son, Carl King).
