    The Tate's gained a huge following because in 1989, no such family had really appeared on British soap before, The Tate's were seemed like something fresh out of Dallas or Dynasty (even though both shows were way past their heyday by 1989)

    No family who has inhabited Home Farm has lasted more than a few years since the last of the Tate family left in the mid 2000s,
    The White's are definitely the true successors of the Tate's, sadly they're being written out.

    Times change, and the world moves on and Emmerdale has normally been quick to change with the times, by 1980, the Emmerdale of 1973 seemed outdated, likewise by 1989, the Emmerdale of 1980 was out of place and so it goes.

    Return of the Tates!

    I loved the revelation, as well as being Chris Tate and Rachel Hughes son, he's the step-grandson of Joe Sugden, he even resembles his uncle Mark Hughes around the time of his death in 1993, I've been watching the 1988-89 episodes on YouTube recently, which was the time the Hughes family arrived (the Tate's would follow a year later)
    Funny watching a perm haired, school girl Rachel in the late 80s now knowing that one day she would spawn Chris Tate mk2.

    This is excellent development, I wonder if his cousin Jean will return? She'll be around 15 years now, plus not only is she a Tate but a Windsor also!

    Tom is really a Tate .the real story is the total lack of imagination inthis soap andy sugden accused of crime he did not commit on the run. Adam barton accused of acrime he did not commit on the run.please scripties put your imagiations in gear give us new vibrant story lines and stop behaving as if we cannot remember storylines from one week to the next.

    Wonder if we'll ever see Joe Tate's only living grandparent back...?

    Its really weird how the writers handled Rachel's parents, especially Kate, I know she died in 1997, but she didn't go to Mark's funeral nor Rachel's wedding, same with David

    Here's my list of past characters who could 'relevantly' return in the near future:

    1. Sandie Merrick (Robert Sugden's half-sibling and business history with Eric Pollard).
    2. David Hughes (Joe Tate's only living grandparent).
    3. Zoe Tate (Joe Tate's aunt).
    4. Jean Tate (Joe Tate's cousin).
    5. Scott Windsor (Jean Tate's father).

    Chrissie and Lawrence are dead, Rebecca in a coma and Lachlan is up and about, I hope Rebecca lives, though if she died, Seb would be in similar circumstances to his father; Robert, whose birth mother Pat Merrick died in a car crash in 1986!

    This is what I like about Emmerdale, they are never scared to kill off long running characters or make them responsible for the death of others.

    Compared to EastEnders right now Emmerdale is the National Theatre equivalent of Continuing Drama.
