This is my first post and probably my last as I shall be banned!
I have watched Emmerdale for years as it's degenerated into the most ridiculous pantomime on TV. Most of the male characters are buffoons - Paddy, Marlon, Jimmy, Rishi, Bob who still manage to attract endless women. There are two farms run by two people neither of whom seem ever to do any farming let alone run a meat production company!
The most unrealistic, not to say impossible situation is everything to with the church. From the day the bishop sold the vicarage - a legal impossibility - to today's farce, it's obvious no-one in the production has the faintest idea about how the Church of England operates. When Ashley became ill there was absolutely no input from the diocese which would not happen and Laurel would not have struggled financially. Harriet has walked in and out of the "job" like it's working at the corner shop and lives in a rented room, another legal impossibility. Every time we see inside the church it's full of lighted candles which would never happen. Now we have two "vicars " one of seems to be homeless.
I know it's fiction but it may as well be set on Mars.
