I'm just watching the second emmerdale now. I missed the first one but obviously Lisa has just told everyone how Derek raped her and its quite hard to watch.
I read an interview with the actress who plays her and she said she has found it really hard to act out something so awful, knowing that it really does happen in real life.
And one of the things she said was that they picked Lisa as the character to be raped rather than one of the younger characters because they wanted to show that rape is about power and control rather than sex or what a person looks like.
And it's one of the few times I think the soaps have shown some maturity during a sensitive storyline. I think this is one time when they won't have a character go through something awful and forget it by the next week and the next big storyline.
