Something tells me that the scene starting at 38:30 in this episode from Boxing Day 1995 may end up on the cutting room floor...

Just needs a slight edit of a few seconds and the scene can continue.


True, but it's the fact the scene is set in a swimming pool; subsequent events mean the script has been turned into an unintentional bit of black comedy. πŸ˜‚

Just wait until it gets to those episods where Sam Dingle used to do Jimmy Saville impressions all the time.


How's about that, then?

Also, Jimmy Savile is clearly heard on the TV show Frank is watching when his presumed-dead wife rocks up to finish him off. It'll be 2021 earliest we hit that episode though.

I wonder if we're going to get the same two continuity announcements for these episodes of Emmerdale like we've had for Coronation Street for the last year?

Maybe if the continuity team in London are too busy to record special announcements for each episode they could find somebody else who now works for ITV and has more time on his hands than previously.

"Now on the ITV3..."
Write that down in your copybook now.

They seem to manage fine for Classic Eastenders on Drama. They even give you a small description of the episode too!

All they need to say is "Mary leaves Annie alone" and it would be accurate for half the episodes Razz

If the announcers read out the synopsis of each episode, it might actually make some people switch off.

Based on the programme listings, if these were read out by the Drama announcers, it would make classic EastEnders sound like unmissable viewing!

Here's a few examples of the unmissable drama coming up this week:

Monday: Sharon and Mags go out on a shopping trip together.

Tuesday: James Willmot-Brown asks Arthur to handle the event for The Dagmar.

Wednesday: Arthur finds time to have a chat with Mary.

Thursday: At the Dagmar, Arthur repairs the damage to the hanging baskets.

Friday: A rainy afternoon and Dot is keeping Ethel company in her room.

Who wouldn't want to miss that!
