Darrell wasn't doing any more work for Matt because of the old bloke dying due to Matt's evil machinations, so he was out of work, so when an old cellmate got in touch and said he'd pay him to steal Brian's keys to have them copied, he couldn't resist. Then the cellmate blackmailed him into helping with the dogfights as door steward (nice to know that dogfighters follow H&S regulations to that extent). Then the dogfighters did what all villains do, which is to randomly drive a 4x4 at people as a threat, which Neil and Ed saw as they returned from the pub, at which point Neil forced Darrell to tell him what was happening. Neil called the cops, they did a raid on the dog fight, Darrell pretended that they had just been passing and seen suspicious activity, and then the cellmate drove off in his 4x4 wildly firing a shotgun and got Neil in the shoulder as he pursued the car, writing down the numberplate.
Jenny and Brian invited Elona and Darrell to dinner to thank them for thwarting the thieves, and Elona was so embarrassed that she left Darrell.
This has led to the exciting story of who will be Peggy's new home help.
Panzee 'twas Neil who was shot, hence Susan being a bit annoyed Darryl & Elona were going to dinner up at Jennifer & Brian's with her & Neil. Jennifer is upset with Jim as Jim wrote a hatchet piece on Brian for Borchester Life. After recovering from a heart attack Tony has agreed to sell the cows at Bridge Farm. One of Lynda's llamas died from TB, the others were fenced off to keep them away from the boundary with Brookfield but this was mentioned once by Joe & never again (although there is a reactor in the Bridge Farm herd).
Badger, I guess it's just one of those subjects I get quite wound up about - facilitating it is nearly as bad as taking part IMO. Favoured passtime round here has been to catch a badger and stick it in a skip with a lurcher or two. Not pretty - there are some total bastards in this world.
Humph. I know TA isn't real and all that, but he seemed so nice.
1. Got involved helping a dogfighting group by letting them into (Brian's?) barn. He told Mike, who told the police, in the resulting melee Mike got shot (not seriously). 2. No. 3. Nah, she backed out and we haven't heard them since. 4. No. Although summer's on its way... 5. We don't know. All that is (hopefully) coming. 6. Yes.
1. He was involved in dog fighting with some bloke he met in the nick 2. No they didn't - Chris was involved in a terrible accident while Alice was in Canada for the interview and she was so guilt-ridden, she turned the job down 3. She invited him over for dinner, he (understandably) thought her intentions were romantic, tried to kiss her and she freaked 4. No and yes (but may come back as the assistant herdman for new mega-dairy) 5. No although he had him threatened. What he was doing in a hotel in Cardiff is anyone's guess 6. Yes
I've heard odd bits and am trying to catch up. I have never missed this long in my life before and I hate not knowing what is happening! And mustardland has gone!!!!
Please tell me: 1. What did Darryl do that was so dreadful? 2. Did Chris and Alice go to Canada (I heard a bit where he was in hospital after being kicked) 3. Elizabeth and Ifty...? 4. Did Ian find out about the Polish chap and has he left? 5. Matt didn't actually kill Paul or anything like that did he..? Do we know whether he still loves her or is he going to stick the knife in? 6. Are Ed and Emmur still at the in-laws?
