Disaster in the Dales

A heart-wrenching catastrophe will rock the village next week when Aaron, Jackson, Paddy and Marlon are caught up in an accident that will change their lives forever.

What starts as a great boys night out ends with the four men losing control of their vehicle and crashing onto a train track, leaving one life hanging in the balance.

A lot has been going on for these guys over the past year, with Danny Miller who plays Aaron at the heart of much of the drama. Indeed it’s Aaron who suggests the night out in the first place.

“It’s his way of trying to make it up to Jackson,” explains Danny. “He suggests they go to a local gay bar as a way of proving to Jackson he is comfortable being together. Of course, Aaron doesn’t plan on Paddy and Marlon coming along so his initial plans are scuppered somewhat!”

“Whilst they are out there’s a definite thawing between the two lads,” says Marc Silcock who plays the lovelorn Jackson. “I think having Paddy and Marlon there actually makes it less awkward. Aaron is so comfortable with them both, which in turn makes him more comfortable with Jackson.”

Mark Charnock (Marlon) continues: “It’s one of those amazing hour-long specials that turns completely on its head.  It’s romantic and very funny and then fate just flips it in the last five minutes.

“It just comes like a bolt from the blue.  It absolutely staggers you as a viewer. I cried when I read the script. Duncan Foster, the director, has filmed a lot of big stunts so he absolutely knows how to film an action sequence and make it look like something you’d only see in a cinema.”

Silcock agrees: “It was very long and because we film out of sequence it got quite confusing because we had to remember emotions we hadn’t felt yet and conversations we hadn’t had yet. It was a rollercoaster of emotions from start to finish.”

Dominic Brunt, who plays nice guy Paddy, says: “It’s really amazing. The aftermath is gut-wrenching, it’s all they need after the year they’ve all had.”

“The episode embodies everything Emmerdale is about,” adds Danny. “It’s spectacular, but this will only mark the start. What comes after is incredible.”

Find out what happens in the hour-long special, Wednesday 6th October, 7pm.
