Not long until our thread's 3 year birthday!

BYOSnowman Mon 22-Feb-16 20:52:30

I like the title!

Minimammoth Mon 22-Feb-16 20:57:22

I like wicked wife sitter. It is getting a bit Panto. Or do I just mean Pants.
Well done Pseudo, last thread went fast.

Yay! Half an award for me for that title! (sort of). Thanks, Pseudo.

I realise that minorities like me (a man on MN) have to accept the small crumbs of acknowledgement that come our way when it comes to the Oscars... smile

GypsyFl0ss Mon 22-Feb-16 21:04:00

Love it. Thanks once again Pseudo. Almost 3 blimey...how time flies.

That's a pure work of art Pseudo!

Although, given this thread's extraordinary prescience in the matter of titles, I do worry that perhaps the BBC might already have decided to economise by doing without an editor. And they so heavily promote both the tweeting and Plarchers that it might seem rather wasteful to actually broadcast episodes. They could sack any SWs who aren't on Twitter and just keep the ones who are prepared to boil their episodes down to 140 characters. And instead of an archivist they could have an official correctionist.

This interesting audiobook is out in October 2016,

www.amazon.co.uk/Archers-Story-Helen-full-cast-dramatisation/dp/178529458X/

but why on earth is it in 'historical romance', of all places?

MrsWembley Mon 22-Feb-16 21:23:03

Nice title!

<not marking place at all, oh no>

DadDadDad Mon 22-Feb-16 21:26:54

On the archivist point, was that acçurate what Ruth and David were saying about his dad changing his herd? Was that the SW's way of saying that they do remember some history?

Wife-sitter! grin

Marking place.

VitaSackvileVest Mon 22-Feb-16 21:29:40

i can't think of anything more depressing than listening to that audiobook.

Gruach Mon 22-Feb-16 21:29:46

Ah. Well the projected existence of such a thing pretty much confirms a "big" ending for the story rather than a long drawn out struggle.

StubbleTurnips Mon 22-Feb-16 21:30:29

Hello all, <offers cake>

Must return to the old thread to catch up, been in the inner depths of Wales with no mod cons & limited phone reception.

VitaSackvileVest Mon 22-Feb-16 21:49:56

Romance - maybe Helen becomes a surrendered wife and they move to Waco and all live happily ever after.

Gruach Mon 22-Feb-16 21:51:20

Maybe they've re-set it in the 18th century?

BoreOfWhabylon Mon 22-Feb-16 21:52:18

Thank you Pseudo and D3

The last thread seemed to go v quickly - what does the spreadshit say?

Eastpoint Mon 22-Feb-16 21:54:40

Thank you Pseudo.

GruntledOne Mon 22-Feb-16 21:54:54

If they're planning to issue an audio book in October, let's hope that holds out a crumb of comfort that the saga will be resolved by then.

BYOSnowman Mon 22-Feb-16 21:55:41

An end before October as well

Who has it on pre order then?

BYOSnowman Mon 22-Feb-16 22:01:01

The sw need to buy themselves the archers archive book. Would be better than nothing

EBearhug Mon 22-Feb-16 22:41:56

There have been books published on TA (including by the BBC) almost every year. They have no excuse.

But anyway.

On previous thread: Did Carol say something to Gill about missing the black and white cows? I thought they had Herefords at Brookfield.

Herefords are beef cattle (All that Hassett Hills stuff.) Haven't ever clocked what breed the dairy herd was, though. And as I'm not a scriptwriter, I can decide not to look back through my various Archers books at this time of night to see if it's ever been mentioned...

Superb thread title. Top work chaps.
