Dead or another ambridge coma special?

So...what do we think?...

Looks like Pip might go and live elsewhere. Good riddance I say.

Oh and I am seeing Des turning up and threatening Elona and the children. Darrell will run around like a chicken with it's head chopped off and hopefully Elona will knock both of them unconscious with a frying pan.

I have listened off and on for a few years, it's the only soap I even vaguely follow and it does make me laugh how, whenever there is a dramatic plot, the traditional listeners are all up in arms and OH MY GOD SOMETHING IS HAPPENING!

What I do find difficult with TA is pinning down all the characters. Being quite a visual person quite often I don't know who is speaking in several scenes which makes it difficult, especially for the sporadic listener who also listens while they are trying to do something else at the same time. I used to get loads of characters' voices mixed up as well which made it especially confusing.

I missed the last part but didn't really get why David and Ruth were so worried about whether Pip was studying or going to the cinema. My parents hadn't a clue what I was up to while I was at uni. Thank God.

The usual problem - she ducked out of helping with the lambs, saying she had to cram in the library to prepare for this placement interview. As soon as she hung up from an understanding David?Ruth? she rang Spencer to say 'London here we come'. Little shit.

She gets board and lodgings (and a car?) on the basis that she helps out on the farm. But she's done naff all of late and some lambs died because of her negligence

She deserves to have her arse kicked off the farm (and off TA because I can't bear her whining Oh mu-uuuuuuum/da-aaaaaaaad for a moment longer)

Filly - who do you get confused between? grin

Fillyjonk I have been listening to the Archers in a quite dedicated fashion for the past about 2 or 3 years and I still don't get who all the characters are, who they're related to, etc. I find some of the voices very difficult to distinguish.

I am finding some of the recent storylines quite annoying. I find Darrell very annoying and spineless. I don't like the way some storylines are signposted and then just disappear. Pip is really doing my head in. The only upside is that DS1 is 18 and sometimes catches parts of TA. The Pip storyline has meant that we've had some quite interesting discussions about responsibility/rights and parents/DC, etc.
