Seen as something of a television version of ''TheArchers'', albeit set among bluff northern types rather than well-heeled country folk, the series received a dramatic ReTool during the early 1990s. Starting with the name change, more and more classic "soap opera" elements were introduced, but the series was still in the shadow of its more illustrious rivals ''Series/CoronationStreet'' and ''Series/EastEnders'' - until 1993, when writers had a plane crash onto the Woolpack, drawing in 18 million viewers.

* SoaplandChristmas: The murder of Tom King on his wedding day (on Christmas Day) in 2006 is probably the most famous one.

* TwistedChristmas:

** 2003: A storm hits Emmerdale village, Tricia is crushed when The Woolpack is struck by lighting and collapses, Ashley and Louise crash off a bridge to avoid a fallen tree. Tricia later died.
** 2006: Tom King is murdered on his wedding day.
** 2010: Chastity Dingle has a wedding on Christmas Day at which she jilts and humilates fiancee Carl due to knowing about his affair with Eve. She also lies about being pregnant.

* BuryYourGays: Subverted. After driving off of a cliff and crashing into a lake, Aaron and Robert escape but Aaron is brought into hospital. After accepting a marriage proposal from Robert he passes out and drops his oxygen mask as his heart monitor begins to flatline.
