I was trying to work out who British TV's most prolific soap scriptwriter is and I have to say it must be Emmerdale's Bill Lyons, whose track record for scripts includes: 357 episodes of Emmerdale Farm/Emmerdale (1984-date). 1 episode of Crossroads (1973). 10 episodes of Z-Cars (1972-1976). 13 episodes of Angels (1979-1983). 4 episodes of Gems (1985) 30 episodes of EastEnders (1985-1988). 1 episode of Eldorado (1992). Can anybody beat that?
