After a “deadly” storm devastates the village to commemorate the ITV soap opera’s 50th anniversary, Emmerdale “will never be the same again.” However, why is the catastrophe taking place in the middle of the day?
This month, Emmerdale is commemorating its 50th birthday with a week of exciting new episodes. The ITV soap’s executive producer, Jane Hudson, explained why she wanted the destruction to occur during a daytime storm, which is at the center of the drama.
In interviews with bbcnewz.online and other media outlets, Jane discussed the soap opera’s milestone and teased that some characters would pass away in upcoming scenes.
Put another way, “it is an emotional rollercoaster and there is a visual input that will blow more than your socks off.”
“There are fatalities and destruction, but there are also genuine intimate, heartbreaking, and loving moments.
Our characters will be put to the test in terms of both their emotional and physical fortitude.
As part of the anniversary plot, Jane suggested to her coworkers that a deadly storm wreak havoc in the Yorkshire Dales.
As she considered the idea, she said: “We’ve done storms before, we’ve done every story before, so it’s always about how we can make this one feel different, bigger, and better. I was quite aware of the eye rolls I was drawing.
“When we first started talking about our 50th anniversary, which was more than a year ago, I believe our lovely village and desire to showcase our landscapes, farms, and scenery were really important to us.
“I was really hoping we would have a storm in the daylight because I think it is quite easy when you do something special to go dark and gloomy but then you can’t see what makes it so special,” said the storm’s creator.
She declared that she was adamant that the storm on the serial drama would occur in the daytime.
“We were really drawn to a windstorm as that village can sometimes be a wind tunnel when you are out there shooting,” Jane continued.
The last time a significant storm affected Emmerdale was on New Year’s Eve in 2003.
Tricia Dingle (Sheree Murphy), who was hurt when the Woolpack’s chimney fell on her during a lightning strike, was on the roof when the incident occurred.
After the tragic event, the famous character passes away in the hospital a few days later.
The village will never be the same again after the impending windstorm, Jane previously teased.
The storm is primarily a windstorm rather than a rain storm, she continued, and it lasts for about three or four episodes over the course of one day.
Before their wedding, Will Taylor (Dean Andrews) and Kim Tate (Claire King) are expected to argue over Will’s ex-girlfriend Harriet Finch (Kathryn Dow Blyton), according to ITV anniversary week spoilers.
Later on, Harriet violently grabs Kim by the throat as she confesses her feelings for Will.
Amelia Spencer (Daisy Campbell), in the midst of the terrifying storm, gives birth in a barn.
