Emmerdale have been told to 'do their research' by disgruntled fans over Doug Potts' exit storyline.
Viewers spotted a major problem as Doug revealed his intention to move to Australia permanently.
Doug and his family returned home from Sandy Thomas' funeral to a crime scene after Pierce Harris took Vanessa Woodfield hostage in their home.
It quickly became clear that Doug was feeling uneasy as he was reunited with Brenda Walker and gushed about the warm air, beaches and sea.
When Brenda said things would soon be back to normal, Doug whispered: "Maybe that's what's bothering me."
Nervous Doug realised that he had some important decisions to make about his future.
Laurel noticed something was odd with his behaviour and claimed he had been in a funny move sincr they left Australia.
Doug explained that Betty had offered to let him have Sandy's apartment and that he wanted Laurel's blessing to go back.
He said "I can’t help feeling if I don't take that leap of faith now I never will. Let's just say Betty lifted the lid on a can of very unfulfilled worms. If I could go tomorrow I would."
Emmerdale viewers rushed to Twitter to question whether Duug would be allowed to move to Oz.
One viewer said: "Really??? Do your research. Doug cant just emigrate to Australia unless hes got huge amount of cash. Takes a year as well to try get a permanent Visa. Be realistic"
"So Doug at an age of 60+ is just going to up sticks & move to Australia. I’m not aware under their immigration policy it would be allowed," added another.
A third agreed: "Erm can Doug just go and emigrate at his age not sure of the rules"
"How would Doug qualify moving to Australia? At his age with no job or family there. Or have I missed something," said a fourth.
Laurel explained to Jai Sharma that Doug was going back to Australia after booking a cheap flight from London.
But she was unaware that devastated Arthur overhead and he stormed off after shouting: "Why does everyone have to leave me?"
Doug then had to break the news to Brenda, who admitted she couldn't blame him for wanting to leave but was not convinced he would go through with it.
Doug claimed he had not made the decision lightly and it would mean the end of their relationship.
Brenda seemed very cold-hearted and insisted they were "not love's young dream" and would cope.
But will troubled Doug really decide to leave the village for good?
