Emmerdale fans have demanded Kim Tate is killed off after accusing soap bosses of turning her into a ‘panto villain’.
Evil Kim returned to the show this week six months after her original week-long return but her behaviour and actions have seen fans not take to her comeback.
Instead they have complained her character has been ruined, suggesting she be axed for good.
One said: “She is one sick, evil and twisted individual. And needs to be killed off.”
A second said: “I don’t even recognise this Kim Tate. The character has now been ruined. It’s obvious those that decided to bring her back had no idea who she was previously.”
A frustrated fan added on DS Forums: “This new version is just nasty to everyone. There is no subtlety.
“Okay, as the lady of the manor, she can order people about and put rents up because she can. Sack people because she can.
“But the old Kim was smart and wise enough to know to keep some people on side. She would use people and discard them when she no longer needed them. She wasn’t just horrible for the sake of it.”
Another said: “When they announced Kim I was open to her until she walked in like a pantomime villain.
“I never liked Kim much but she was never like this before. I think anyone wanting her back has every right to complain at this caricature panto villain they have brought into the show.”
A further fan asked: “Why have the producers turned her into a panto villain?
“They do know they have completely ruined her character forever.”
Kim has been seen ordering the murder of her step-grandson Joe, picking fights with almost everyone in the village and splitting Graham up with Megan just because she could.
She has also decided to ‘silence’ Cain Dingle for good after she discovered he killed Joe and not Graham as she instructed, but fans think this has gone too far.
