Review :-

Jack comes under pressure from the police but will he betray his own son?

Terry makes plans to be more involved in TJ's life but Dawn takes some convincing as their custody battle takes its toll.

Sadie changes tactics in her fight against Charity.

Jack gives his statement to the police, will he reveal Andy’s intentions?

At the hospital, the police wait outside Jack’s (Clive Hornby) room until he agrees to see them for questioning about the shooting. At the first opportunity the police pile the pressure on Jack telling him they know all about the affair between Katie (Sammy Winward) and Robert (Karl Davies) and that there was bad blood between the brothers.

Horrified that they seem to have sussed the whole situation, Jack flounders and changes his mind about telling the truth. He tells them he has blanked out the accident and calls for a nurse explaining he is feeling unwell.


Jack is left emotionally and physically drained, but the police are not content with Jack’s sudden amnesia and propose to do some digging within the village to see if they can shed any further light on the matter.

True to form, Viv (Deena Payne) is happy to offer her assistance with their investigation. How will weary Jack react when this new evidence comes to light?

Terry (Billy Hartman) feels he’s losing touch with his son. He decides to have it out with Dawn (Julia Mallam) and tells her he feels he isn’t having enough input into TJ’s life. However, Dawn is in no mood for a confrontation and quickly quashes her estranged husband’s plans to organise a Christening for the tot.

Sadie offers Nicola a cleaning contract

Elswhere in the village, Sadie (Patsy Kensit) offers Nicola (Nicola Wheeler) a cleaning contract at Holdgate Farm. Over a bottle of wine to toast the deal, cunning Sadie slyly pumps Nicola for dirt on Charity (Emma Atkins). Gossip Nicola gladly enlightens her, filling her in on all the sordid details as Sadie revels in delight.

However Nicola's contracdt soon brings Laurel face to face with Damon

ITV.COM What Have You Got To Tell Us? Tuesday 25.05.04
When the doctor tells Jack he’s free to go detectives wait out side his room eager to take his statement. Robert begs his father to think carefully before he speaks to them. The detectives make it plain to Jack from the outset that they know why Andy shot him. Surprised by what they already know Jack tells them he can’t remember what happened after he opened the caravan door. Frustrated by Jack’s amnesia the detectives head to Emmerdale in search of locals who can corroborate their hunch about the bad blood between the Sugden brothers.
True to form, Viv is happy to offer her assistance to the police in their enquiries. With Donn’s hep the detectives soon learn about Andy shooting holes in the wall up at the farmhouse. Convinced that Andy is more than a little trigger-happy the police arrive at Jack’s while he is on his way home. The police are in for a surprise when Jack tells them that he can remember what happened, but they are not pleased when he tells them that he remembers that his shooting was only a shooting accident. When Andy arrives on Jack’s doorstep he leaves heartbroken as Jack tells him he’s on his own now and he wants nothing to do with him.
When Terry arrives at the Woolpack and Bob asks Donna to tell Terry how TJ’s hearing test went. Terry confronts Dawn for not telling him about his son’s test. Terry later complains to Louise about being a peripheral figure in TJ’s life. Louise suggests he needs to be more proactive, Terry’s response is to organise a Christening for TJ. When he tells Dawn about his plans she goes ballistic and says that there’s no way TJ is going to be christened.
Sadie offers Nicola a cleaning contract at Holdgate Farm. Over a glass of wine to toast the deal, cunning Sadie slyly pumps Nicola for dirt on Charity. One of Emmerdale’s leading gossip peddlers Nicola is only too happy to oblige and tells Sadie about how Charity was working as prostitute when she met Chris Tate. Laurel, meanwhile, sets to work on the cleaning and irritates Tom and Charity with her chatter. Laurel soon finds herself in a spot of bother as Sadie’s huge dog, Damon, traps her in a room. When Laurel is eventually rescued Sadie’s only concern is for her hound.
When Diane returns to the Woolpack and catches Val red-handed in the act of serving drinks she tells her sister that she’s out of a job with immediate effect. Val shocks Rodney by deciding to come clean about their affair. Diane surprises them both by telling them that she knew already that they were carrying on again and isn’t bothered by it because she’s got more important things to worry about. Diane tells Louise that she will only allow Val to keep her job on the condition that Chas is reinstated and leaves it up to Louise and Val to decide what they are going to do.
