Poor scripts in Emmerdale

From: John Appleyard, Liversedge.

I COULDN’T agree more with Brian Thurling (The Yorkshire Post, July 26) and the ridiculous story lines of Emmerdale.

I stopped watching this programme years ago when it ended its association with anything to do with farming, but became interested several months ago when the programme’s producers announced that the character of Donna was diagnosed with the asbestos-related disease mesothelioma, a lethal cancer for which there is no cure.

If the programme’s editors had done their research properly, Donna would be seriously ill by now but in Emmerdale she continues with her life as if nothing has happened. Poor script and poor research.
