New Emmerdale titles
2018 was Emmerdale's 47th year. Production was overseen by Iain MacLeod until Episode 8231 (14th August 2018) when Kate Brooks took over the reigns with Laura Shaw (joining her as producer) and Jane Hudson (as Executive Producer) joining her from Episode 8347/8348 (25th December 2018).

299 episodes were broadcast during the year. Major storylines included Charity Dingle’s fight for justice against rapist Mark Bails, Paddy Kirk and Chas Dingle losing their baby daughter Grace, the affair between Laurel Thomas and Bob Hope, the acid attack on Ross Barton which was inadvertently caused by Debbie Dingle, Lachlan White’s killings, the kidnapping of Amelia Spencer and Joe Tate’s disappearance, which led to Graham Foster manipulating Cain Dingle to believe that he had killed him.


Christmas 2018

Some of the 2018 cast at Christmas

The year featured a number of exits from fan favourite characters. The entire White family was gone by the end of the year with Louise Marwood and John Bowe leaving their roles as Chrissie and Lawrence, respectively, in a car crash stunt which killed both characters in January. The crash was caused by Chrissie’s son Lachlan, played by Thomas Atkinson, who went on to kill a further two people and hold his aunt Rebecca, played by Emily Head, against her will for two months. Lachlan departed the village in September when he was arrested for his crimes. He made a brief return the following January. Rebecca joined Ross Barton on his travels to Liverpool for a fresh start in November, as actor Michael Parr left the series after five years to pursue other projects. Shaun Thomas’s character Gerry Roberts was killed off in May as part of the Lachlan story.

Freddie Jones made his final appearance as Sandy Thomas in February, whilst John Middleton returned as Sandy’s son Ashley for two episodes the same month in a video message, after Ashley died the previous year. Adam Thomas departed as Adam Barton in January, when he went on the run after being falsely accused of murdering Emma Barton.

Kim Tate (2018)

The return of Kim Tate

Ned Porteous left his role as Joe Tate after just a year when his character fled the village in October. He was believed to have been killed off, but five months later it was revealed that this was not true. This was part of the highly publicised return of Kim Tate, played by Claire King, who had not been seen in the village for nineteen years. The special return week in October was given the slogan ‘They All Fall Down’. Kim departed at the end of the week, but returned on a full-time basis in March 2019.

Jane Cox temporarily left her role as Lisa Dingle in May. Her on-screen husband Zak also temporarily left the village in October due to actor Steve Halliwell’s health problems. The former returned to the programme in March 2019, and the latter did so in May. Another temporary exit came in the form of Leyla Harding as Roxy Shahidi left to have her first child in January. Leyla returned in October.

Cast additions included Sandra Marvin’s character Jessie Grant becoming a series regular and striking up a romance with Marlon Dingle, and the arrival of her feuding sons Ellis Chapman and Billy Fletcher, played by Asan N'Jie and Jay Kontzle, respectively. Olivia Bromley joined the cast as Dawn Taylor, a friend of Ross Barton, in April, and joined the regular cast in December. Rebecca Sarker also joined the cast as Manpreet Jutla. Another new arrival for the year was James Moore as Ryan Stocks, the long-lost son of Charity Dingle, who was tracked down as part of her abuse storyline. James went on to win the National Television award for Best Newcomer for the role. Liam Cavanagh, played by Jonny McPherson, was also promoted to the regular cast. Louisa Clein joined the programme as Liam’s ex-wife Maya Stepney. The character began a relationship with David Metcalfe, and began to seduce David’s stepson Jacob Gallagher in a controversial grooming plot. Ash Palmisciano joined the cast as Matty Barton in a story which saw mother Moira discover that Matty, formerly known as Hannah, had transitioned without her knowledge.
