I wish to complain about tuesday nights episode of emmerdale (13th november) between paul & jonny. I was physically sick after the show & during the night ended up with nightmares. I have always been a big fan of emmerdale & have visited esholt when it was being filmed their, but the story lines have gone downhill in the last few years, i don't know if i want to watch it anymore.

I would have thought this episode would've been shown after the 21:00pm watershed with warnings about it's content. I intend to take this further & want to know what you intend to do about it. The program was sick.

I want a response.

After reading about a forthcoming episode of Emmerdale where Debbie will burn the bag of money which Cain extorted from the "Kings" I find repulsive. In this disastrous credit crunch year, surely the writers could have thought of a better way to deal with this rather boring predictable line. The character could have stuffed the money into envelopes and posted it to various small charities, or to people in desperate need.
Perhaps more believable the writers could have taken into account the "victims " of the crime...i e the Kings themselves...and a form of justice given to them with the return of the remaining money.

If Debbie is trying to bring her parents together there must be many other ways of doing it and not through this method. Perhaps you can come up with a second scenario...that it was only a top layer of money and the bag was filled with paper rubbish...But to burn it is an abhorrent way of getting rid of it.
Not well Done.., scriptwriters.
Your rubbish plots are becoming too bizarre...i.e Is Aaron struggling with homosexual tendencies, another worn out plot... which the viewers do not need to be put through again. Leave the character alone...obnoxious... loudmouthed...yes - slightly troubled...but definitely very attractive to some females.
Try dealing with deeper issues... Colostomy for example...when Diane had hers it was literally swept under the table...this operation affects patients in ways you cannot imagine.
Contact the... Colostomy Assoc. for further info.

One last point I have watched Emmerdale from the first episode.

Yours sincerely,
Isabel Reid. ( Mrs)

I have watched Emmerdale for the last 30 years, and have hardly missed an episode. I am complaining about the episodes shown on February 25th, in which you have shown BLACK PEOPLE in a negative light yet again. Yes, a robber, kidnapper, crook. I have longed so much to see blacks in my favourite show, even though it would be rear to see a black family in those parts; but there are some that do live in villages and remote areas who are not dysfunctional, bent coppers, fiesty barmaid, factory workers and Rodney's helper.
It is quite unrealistic to have sharma and sharma sweet factory in a quiet quaint village. Hotten would be a better location.

There are many black christians; you have a village church!? Black people can sing/entertain; you have a pub!? Many blacks are highly educated.

I hope to see better storylines for blacks or maybe you should just pretend that we do'nt exist.

I am very disappointed and may stop watching soaps completely, rather than resort to eastenders or corry.

I am not happy with Friday 12ths episode to do with Tootsie, I am an animal lover and have two dogs off my own, but this episode made me so angry, if it was crackpot, neurotic sally that took wee tootsi that was thrown from the car, it really upset me and made me feel sick as you should know that these type of situations happen in real life and with you showing that it made it look as if you were saying it is okay to do this, I found it so upsetting and I was disgusted.
I personnally think you have lost the plot with your story lines, please get the dog situation sorted out because if I watch it tonight and Tootsi is dead, I will totally do my nut withyou.
I love Emmerdale and have been watching it from the very start but I am getting sick off some of the horrible storylines, it was the same with Eastenders when poor Willard was locked in a cupboard, I lost the plot with that as well.
Stop using children and animals for your storylines.

The episode of the thugs dog covered in blood getting in the car has physically made me vomit all night. How could you show such things on a family show?

Let me explain further... I am a dog owner of a small puppy, also suffering with high anxiety. I fear walking my dog in the park on a daily basis, for the very concern of my pup being attack by another dog! Are you trying to make me agoraphobic? A show like Emmerdale is a FAMILY show and has basically put the idea out there to real life thugs and bullies to get a big intimidating dog, encouraging such acts! That show has left me sick to the stomach and unable to sleep. I am 30 years old and reduced to tears so god knows how many child viewers have reacted to that scene! It doesn't have to be graphic to leave people with nightmares.

I am beyond furious that such a disturbing storyline has been aired and will no longer be watching the programme.

I just watched the episode where Camerons van got burned out. His van is a volswagon the van that was burned out was an iveco. Why is this if ye are going to burn out a van. Why don`t ye burn out his proper van not an old cheap second hand van. I`m very unhappy about this whole situation.

I enjoy watching Emmerdale but the ongoing clergy story is beyond belief and does not even come anywhere close to reality. It is utter nonsense and shows that someone has not even bothered to ask some very basic questions. For example a new vicar is never appointed by a previous one. The closest this could come to be reasonable would be if the Church was an Independent Chapel, but then we wouldn’t have a bishop involved.

I am upset at the story line that is going on at the moment with poor old Sam and Rachael, being set up by Charity and Declan.What has happened to forensics as if surely if the jumper in question would have had more fibres than poor Sams and also it was in the washing basket at the time Charity was there with Lisa.So please writers lets see a bit more reallity in the programme and Declan and Charity get their comuppance.I used to enjoy watching Emmerdale when it was called the FARM but now its more like Coronation Strret and Eastenders which i dont watch anymore.If these story lines dont change for the better then this will be the last time i will watch this so called programme.

The script writers have got it so wrong in this idiotic and bang out of order storyline.1) How dare they pick on the most vulnerable couple in the village who are a great example to people all over, they love each other and are kind and work hard . Use that as an example, don't destroy it...2) The Yorkshire police must be fuming to be portrayed as bumbling idiots, AGAIN !3) There has been too much violence, and law breaking for a village that has no more than 20 houses in it. Get it back to before, get rid of those new script writers, who seem to be able to write one type of storyline, criminally based. .Get the humour and more realistic, gentle story lines back in. I stopped watching Eastenders for this reason and I have been watching Emmerdale when it was Farm and had Joe, Sam, granddad etc. in.
