2004 was Emmerdale's 33rd year. Production was overseen by Executive Producer Keith Richardson and Series Producer Steve Frost.

308 episodes were broadcast during the year. Major storylines included the death of Tricia Dingle and her husband Marlon's struggle to come to terms with it, the wedding of Andy Sugden and Katie Addyman resulting in the exposing of her affair with Andy's brother Robert and the unintentional shooting of the brothers' father Jack, the wedding of Jack Sugden and Diane Blackstock and Pearl Ladderbanks' son Frank Bernard Hartbourne, a former rapist, arriving in the village to a poor reception from the villagers. The year also saw the arrivals of the King family and Diane Blackstock's sister Val Lambert.

Departures for the year included Tricia Dingle's death after she was critically injured in the storm that opened the year, Paul Marsden's death after falling off scaffolding outside his house and his widow Siobhan leaving the village never knowing the true circumstances of her husband's demise and also after Matthew King refused to let her rent.
