Note: Almost all details below are taken from the "Granada" edition of TV Times which covered the programme's home region until 2005, thereafter the "England" edition is used.

Note: As per 1997 onwards, many of the soap page articles were generically focused on the storylines and contained little additional information from the actors or anyone else concerned by way of opinion and usually just repeated information concerning what was going to happen within the episodes. A comparison between the headline of the articles and the episodes shown that week will illustrate what the article refers to and no further explanation below is necessary. Where the headline is not explicit enough, the information in brackets contains additional information.
