I thought Iftikhar and Kirsty were love's young dream, when did that come to an end? And surely if he is of an age to go out with Kirsty without causing gossip, he is waaaaaaayyyyy too young for Elizabeth?

you are indeed behind; I wondered same thing about age diffs.

I am going to have a quick sneak on Archer's website...

Eek, Elizabeth is my age, 46 (1967).

Iftakar is...unknown age.

Kirsty also unknown age but I think must be at least 30... Remember she went out with Tom who is 33 (even if he does act like a 13yo sometimes).

Kirsty seems to be the obligatory "spare female" of Ambridge, there to listen to various characters give their side of the story, occasionally offering mild support and encouragement to show that the speaking character isn't just having a narratively useful monologue which allows everyone to catch up on events. She can also usefully have sex with men in between them finding true love with a more established character. She'll probably be wheeled out to service Tom again for a while - I really do think she deserves better storylines.

I think Kirsty is a little older than Tom, remembering when she was first introduced to Ambridge (she was an anti-GM protester, wasn't she?)

So I'm guessing Kirsty is c. 34, Ifti is 38 (he just sounds 38 to me) and Elizabeth is a young and sprightly 46

Oh ok, not quite so unseemly smile I did think he and Kirsty were getting along well, when did that finish?
She seems like she (and tom, Helen, et al) should be decades younger than Elizabeth.

Where does Kirsty live thse days? How does she afford Ambrige/Felpersham rent?

She probably sleeps on a bench until she's required to turn up and feed lines to one of the wet female characters or cop off with one of the male ones hmm. I've just checked on the Archers website blush (first time, honest) and even the actor who plays her says: "I feel she's lost her way a bit." To compound how uninterested the writers are in her, the very first part of her biography has a massive uncorrected typo in it.

I really want Kirsty, Amy and Brenda to get a bachelorette pad together and just have a blast going through men like petrol through a sick donkey. Tom could be like 'oh noes, are Kirsty and Brenda sitting around cackling about my gourmet sausage?', Emma, Helen, Alice and Nick could be all wistful for their footloose and fancy free days. I want to see all the single ladies enjoying it, cos god knows it can be fun. But the archers always makes them a bit mopey and sad.

I was just thinking maybe since Pip can't get to Youni that she might bunk with amy (and discover Lil and Paul at it) but I forgot they aren't really friends are they?

Tom is 33! You're making me feel old.
