    The episode in which Jason psychologically tortured Aaron in Gordon's old cell and then Aaron met the hilarious Father Aidan was phenomenal. Top notch soap opera, and should be up for at the very least directing awards. The whole thing was wonderfully shot.

    Ross' 'gay' advice and playing matchmaker for Finn was hilarious!

    Yes, totally! I'm loving Ross with every scene, well almost every scene, the ones with Debbie bore me.

    I hope Ross and Debbie don't get together this time around, Ross is better on his own or with someone who is as cheery and cheeky as he is.

    Apparently John Middleton filmed his final scenes earlier this month.


    21 years and it's nearly all over for Ashley

    I felt sick at the end of last night's episode with all that pig muck throwing between Zac & Lisa

    Yes, it was great. Such a sweet and lovely scene. You could almost smell the sh*t. Zak & Lisa remain Emmerdale's most authentic characters.

    It was also nice to see the real Robert Sugden emerge, instead of the drippy, overly concerned character he'd become in recent months.

    Ha! I felt like I could smell it and even when Lisa was half-heartedly wiping Zak's jacket, there was a lump to the top right that was making me feel sick.


    Surprisingly I'm really enjoying Liv, I think the actress playing her is great and well cast.

    Emmerdale is in the clear with Ofcom following complaints over Aaron Dingle's prison bullying storyline.

    The ITV soap provoked 269 complaints to Ofcom when Aaron's ordeal in jail took a dark turn, as he was taunted in the same cell where his paedophile father Gordon Livesy ended his life last year.

    The intense scenes saw Jason violently force Aaron into the cell and cruelly mock his traumatic history of child abuse, which some viewers felt was unsuitable for the show's pre-watershed 7pm timeslot.

    However, Ofcom has confirmed its decision over the complaints today (March 20), ruling that the violence "was appropriately limited" – and no further action will be taken.

    A spokesperson for Ofcom said:"We assessed complaints that a prison storyline, with strong and violent themes, was not suitable for broadcast before the watershed.

    "However, the violence was appropriately limited, and clear warnings were provided at the start of the programmes.

    "We also took into account Emmerdale's established role in presenting sometimes challenging or distressing social issues".

    Ofcom also ruled that the drug use in the episode was editorially justified following six further complaints, after Aaron took a joint in a bid to get through his ordeal.

    Yeah, just as I was admiring the actress, she goes on leave.

    I'm expecting them to fill her gap in with Sarah Sugden...

    Faith is a fantastic character and I love how she's now in the middle of Emma's nightmare.

    Can't wait for Laurel to be single again. Hope she starts drinking again.

    The soon-departing John Middleton (Ashley Thomas) in a previous Emmerdale life as Police Constable John Jarvis in June 1994.

    Two years before landing his more familiar role.

    Ashley is going to be missed, an end of an era.

    The current storyline involving the vicar finding themselves involved with the village bad-boy takes me back 31 years.

    That was quite a shocking ending to tonight's show.

    One thing I'm not following @Canon



    Chas cannot forgive her mum for abandoning her with the drunk father Shadrack. That I get, but where I'm struggling is my memory of the show had Shadrack in it for a long time and yet I cannot recall any real problems he had with Chas, I always thought they got along with each other.

    It was and I think it was a wise move to give Faith such a story so soon after arrival, given that she's a larger-than-life character she could have quickly become a bit one-note.

    They did for the most part, Chas was certainly more forgiving of Shadrach than Cain ever was but she wouldn't have let him forget what he was like as a father either. I think it's funny how Shadrach crops up in serious moments like this, or like how they tied him to Cain's reaction to Holly's addiction, it makes Shadrach seem like a far more interesting character now than he ever was when he was alive.
