WTF have they done to Fallon??! What a simpering, desperate, insecure 'girl' they've turned her into AND now they're going to land her with boring as sin Rhys angry

What's annoying is there's been no communication (in any sense of the word) grin between them in TA since ,not that I've heard anyway!

ok halloween is over.

shock then

CuttedUpPear Sat 03-Nov-12 01:38:54

No I didn't know [hshock]

cutted you DO know that Fallon and Jazzer actually did the deed in Ambex. on the way back from Edinburgh after they left Harry with his old boyf. in Cumbria. I missed it too something grin

Yes Olivia given the S.W.s record of changing the characters' personalities at the drop of a hat he may well turn out to be a "Twonk" (good word BTW!! grin)

Harry is bi?! I only went away for 2 weeks and totally missed his leaving storyline. I think the Fallon/Rhys thing is quite predictable. Cast together in the Christmas play.....sigh.

Another one here who wants Fallon and Jazzer to get together, the UST is running low now

Goodness, feel it's quite important to state that usual MNHQ disclaimers apply and that any views and opinions expressed about fictional characters on any long running radio soap opera are solely of the individual and are not the views of Mumsnet. grin
Let's hope Rhys doesn't turn into a twonk. grin

Well I think she'd been busting to ring him since she found out he was running the church restoration project at NotAmbridge. Or something like that.

Songbird Thu 25-Oct-12 16:03:46

Yes I thought that. Clumsy setting up of an affair (or another almost-affair).

GrimmaTheNome Thu 25-Oct-12 15:10:06

I guessed it must have been something like that, but ringing paul out of the blue seems too much of a stretch... dodgy plot device.

Songbird Thu 25-Oct-12 14:28:40

I LOVE Jim and Jazzer living together! Just love it!!

The Paul thing came about because Matt wouldn't go to support Lillian at the hospital and in a complete panic (she also couldn't get hold of Jenny-darling) she rang Paul and he leapt to her side sigh. I know James is an idiot and Matt quite rightfully said he was probably laying it on a bit thick, but Lillian wanted him there and that was the important thing. And when she got home you could hear he was sitting there watching the telly, and not 'bust with work' as he claimed. I totally despise Matt, cannot see ANY redeeming side to his character at all. All that pusscat shite makes me vom.

GrimmaTheNome Thu 25-Oct-12 14:10:32

I've missed a few - how on earth did Paul end up being with Lillian at the hospital after her whinging idiot son got hurt (I don't care how that happened. He's a complete tosser.)

Jazzer's being nice to old people seems to usually have a self-interested angle to it - manipulating Christine into a bed for the night and all the food in her house, then on to Jim (I rather like that odd-couple pairing of mavericks)

Songbird Thu 25-Oct-12 13:59:46

Yeah but the ones with 'personality' are shits! Rhys is sweet, he's been supportive of Fallon and he's funny(ish). He's also a relatively new main-ish character so he's a fairly blank canvas and should be easy to make more interesting (without being a twonk).

OliviaMumsnet (MNHQ) Thu 25-Oct-12 12:46:21

Rhys has a lovely voice
But zero personality.

seeker Thu 25-Oct-12 10:13:22

How long is it going to take Kenton to run the Bull into the ground? Or has he had a personality transplant into responsible, sober citizen, like Ed. And Jazzer. And Jamie.

Songbird Thu 25-Oct-12 10:10:57

Well, I like Rhys. There, I said it! I actually find Fallon pretty boring at the moment so they're well matched!

OliviaMumsnet (MNHQ) Mon 22-Oct-12 11:41:20

grin @ your DH's Ambridge detox.

lalalonglegs Mon 22-Oct-12 11:17:06

Grrrr - had to spend a lot of time driving around yesterday and was trapped with accompanied by the Archers omnibus, which seemed to be entirely about whether Fallon and Kenton could/should job-swap. After about half an hour, the husband (whom I blame for first introducing me to the Archers but who has now detoxed and been clean for several years), just started yelling: "This is SOOOOO boring. How can anyone possibly listen to this shit? Why would anyone be interested in this drivel?" I'm so used to it inducing a state of semi-consciousness, I hadn't quite grasped how truly vapid it can be blush. Last week's episodes were real shockers in terms of scriptwriting.

seeker Mon 22-Oct-12 10:24:30

Patrick! What happened to him? And how come Kirsty and Ifty have suddenly become annitem? And where's Amy?

OliviaMumsnet (MNHQ) Sun 21-Oct-12 15:38:33

Only just seen this thread , roar at one milkman short of a float!
What about Kirsty's birdwatching/naturewatch chap? Patrick was it?

seeker Tue 09-Oct-12 17:21:57

I know- I didn't know until I just googled
Him. I hope Jazzer's sighted- he did drive the van
To Scotland!

ppeatfruit Tue 09-Oct-12 16:55:12

I'm assuming that because I've never heard anyone referring to him being blind on TA.

ppeatfruit Tue 09-Oct-12 16:53:48

No I didn't Seeker that's good! He plays a sighted role which is interesting.

seeker Tue 09-Oct-12 16:45:06

Dis you know the actor who plays Jazzer is blind?
