“Big dramatic storyline” being filmed on location for Emmerdale!
Yesterday, the paper stated, “Filming will continue tonight on the moors above Silsden and Riddlesden on a major action sequence for Emmerdale.”
The article added that “real emergency crews” are on stand-by while the expensive and top secret stunt is filmed.
Emmerdale’s Press officer, Hannah Green, said of the filming, “It’s a big dramatic storyline that will be on screen in February.
“It does involve a big stunt so we’ve had paramedics and fire crews…”
So of course, the pressing question is, just exactly what is the storyline and are any of the characters going to die in what we might assume – since fire engines were on site – involves a fire or maybe an explosion?
The bosses of Emmerdale are of course used to filming big stunts, and over the years, we’ve seen dozens of fires, explosions, houses collapsing, and assorted other tragedies befalling the villagers…
And of course, as this year marks the show’s 40th anniversary, Emmerdale’s producer, Stuart Blackburn, has promised that 2012 will be one of the show’s biggest years.
For me, the plane crash of ’93 still stands out as the best ever storyline in terms of stunts. It was really incredibly well done, and I still recall watching, horrified, as poor Archie simply vapourised!
Here’s a reminder of that whole storyline…
What do you reckon this big “dramatic” storyline could be?
