Tonight’s nail-biting instalment of Emmerdale closed with Lachlan (played by Thomas Atkinson) hinting that he’s bumped off Chrissie’s (Louise Marwood) uncle Tim Richards (Mark Morgahan).
Lachlan kidnapped Tim and hid him in the boot of his own car, before roughing him up in disturbing scenes.
Taking his grandson to one side, Lawrence White (John Bowe) gasped: “What have you done?”
“Let’s just say you don’t have to worry about Tim ever again,” Lachlan smirked.
