Dominic Brunt and Mark Charnock would love if their 'Emmerdale' characters Paddy and Marlon were given their own spin off detective show
'Emmerdale's' Dominic Brunt and Mark Charnock would love a cop buddy spinoff for their characters.
The duo - who play Paddy Kirk and Marlon Dingle in the ITV soap - revealed their dream storyline would involve the pair moving to New York to become crime fighters.
Asked what they would come up with for their characters if they could write their own scripts, Mark re exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "I'd love our own spinoff where we become detectives."
Dominic added: "They'd move to New York."
Mark - who depicts unlucky in love chef Marlon on the show - admitted he wishes their characters could get some more female attention.
He said: "There would be some sort of cultural shift whereby Marlon and Paddy actually become accepted as the good looking norm. There would be this massive change in public perception. "
Dominic also revealed he wished bosses hadn't written into the script that local vet Paddy's father was dead because he has the perfect actor in mind to play him.
He said: "Paddy's father wasn't in the soap but he's dead, he committed suicide. I'd love to see Christopher Biggins as a father for Paddy though, he'd be perfect."
