The first time i listened today it's getting very hot in all senses of the word.

NigellaTufnel Tue 24-Jul-12 16:38:26

How on earth are they going to explain it if something terrible happens back in the main show?

ppeatfruit Tue 24-Jul-12 16:48:42

I did hear JD mentioning she's having trouble with Kate;no details were relayed so maybe they're going to talk about her soon. IMO Kate has sounded unhappy for a long time but she's denying it isn't she? so what do you reckon she'll be kidnapped or worse?

Oh no poor Phoebe! What a cliff hanger

ppeatfruit Wed 25-Jul-12 12:45:12

Yes obviously Did you hear even Kate say it was dangerous in Jo burg? I'm amazed she didn't find out how Pheebs was going to get to her friend's and follow her.

WHAT HAPPENED!!! Am at work and can't find summaries anywhere

ppeatfruit Wed 25-Jul-12 12:56:06

Well Pheebs has been eavesdropping and found out that Kate is carrying on with 'another man'. It does sound like there's not much love lost between her and Lucas who is very authoritarian ( Kate's rebellion has ended in her going with a black guy who's worse than her Dad!).

Pheebs has started to rebel big style and has run out to go round her friend's who obviously lives a long way 'cos she needs to get a taxi. In "dangerous" Joburg and has been picked up by someone (we don't know if he's a taxi not).

They also showed it was dangerous a couple of weeks ago with that weird guy who Lucas scared away. I really hope she just gets a scare and isn't sacrificed for storyline.

Oh dear......

ppeatfruit Wed 25-Jul-12 13:12:00

We've got a friend who worked there in RL and he was saying it is extremely dangerous esp. if you look like you might be rich or white. he had first hand knowledge. The S.W.'s knew what they were doing putting Kate there!

ppeatfruit Thu 26-Jul-12 14:38:56

Okay so now it's Lucas AND Pheebs in jeopardy OMG.!!

Greenshadow Thu 26-Jul-12 16:10:02

So we have Kate and Pheebs plus step-siblings all having to return to Ambridge after Lucas's murder (or alternatively his arrest for murder).

Lots of scope for Kate / Hailey rivalry and racism issues for the children at school.

NigellaTufnel Thu 26-Jul-12 17:04:42

What has happened on Thurs?!!!!!

ppeatfruit Fri 27-Jul-12 08:41:14

Well it got a bit confusing (of course on radio!!) but Lucas rushes in his car to follow Pheebs who's in a taxi texting directions (the driver who has made suggestive comments and showed her a cricket bat he keeps under his seat 'just in case' but doesn't seem totally bad is taking a short cut but stopped by rd. works). Lucas sees her, she's freaking by now and it's not clear what happened ; pheebs gets out of taxi as does driver who wants his money and Lucas too.... I'm assuming here though because it's gets completely garbled screams bangs etc.....!!!! and it finishes shock There is a repeat on extra on Sunday a.m. and p.m.

I guess there may be a hysterical call from Kate and or Phoebe to Ambridge tonight

ppeatfruit Fri 27-Jul-12 08:51:10

Oh yes i hadn't thought of Hayley and Roy if anything has happened; note that Kate apologised to lucas on the phone Oh blimey!!

Acekicker Fri 27-Jul-12 08:56:11

I thought that Pheebs hadn't seen what was under his seat but had assumed it was a cricket/baseball bat...the driver said then 'boom they're in the hospital'.

Presumably it was a gun not sports equipment though.

The timeline for AE versus TA is always a bit shakey (ie Thursday's episode was clearly a real-time follow on from Tuesday) so I wonder if none of this will be talked about in Ambridge until Tuesday evening as presumably all this was happening on Tuesday/Wednesday night (wasn't Kate's side of the call with Hayley already heard on TA?).

Dammit I want to hear the next episode now, I can't wait until Tuesday and a little bit of me is loathing myself for feeling like this

ppeatfruit Fri 27-Jul-12 09:06:02

Yes ace I'm proper confused now; how far ahead or behind in time is S.A.? from us,if it is at all? We heard the call to Hayley in Ambex didn't we? IKEWYM I'm hooked as well hmm

Acekicker Fri 27-Jul-12 09:13:15

We heard Hayley's side a few days ago on The Archers where it was all 'well I'd arranged to speak with her at this time. ok. get her to call me please.' terseness from Hayley.

Then on yesterday's Ambex we got Kate's flustered 'look she's not here, she's gone out, yes yes I'll get her to call'....

I assumed these were the same call but they happened on totally different days <confused>

Acekicker Fri 27-Jul-12 09:13:45

At least though they've stopped that hideous stream of consciousness voice over this series of AE! That was making me want to scratch my ears off!

ppeatfruit Fri 27-Jul-12 09:19:38

I remember that too it was the same call then? I bet the S.W's wish they'd never started all this grin I've only just started listening to Ambex. so I didn't hear that voice over, was it to clarify things?

Acekicker Fri 27-Jul-12 12:02:33

Oh - a thought...perhaps Lucas has the gun not the taxi-driver...!

Acekicker Fri 27-Jul-12 12:03:26

Voiceover was a hideous soft toned internal monologue so we had Daniel and Alasdair lusting after whatserface the wannabe Vet/Harlot <shudders>

ppeatfruit Fri 27-Jul-12 12:24:02

Oh blimey screechy crap actress Natalie do you mean? shock. I had that thought about the gun as well (great minds grin)

Ponders Fri 27-Jul-12 12:29:47

no, screechy Natalie is Jamie's, not Daniel's

the whole vetlust storyline stayed on Amex, didn't it? (thank god hmm)

I do not like Amex

Ponders Fri 27-Jul-12 12:30:37

(I do not listen to Amex, I mean I don't like the concept grin)

ppeatfruit Fri 27-Jul-12 15:42:32

Lol at vetlust who was it then is she in i Ambex or TA any more? Did Alisdair AND Daniel and her do it? (not together of course grin ).

ppeatfruit Fri 27-Jul-12 15:43:17

I've only just started listening to Amex.

Acekicker Fri 27-Jul-12 17:26:21

God I can't remember Vetlust's name (so let's just call her that shall we grin) but basically Daniel adored her, she strang him along a huge amount whilst dating the school rugger bugger. Finally ditched him for Daniel but was all over Alasdair about wanting to be a vet so Alasdair took her out on rounds for the experience (fnar) etc and she finally flung herself at him, and after about 3 seconds of horrid Archer kissing slurp noises (TM) he came to his senses.

Vetlust went all fatal attraction threatening to get him reported to the Vet Governing body, the police, Shula etc. Alasdair confessed to Shula who swallowed the 'she threw herself at me, all I'm guilty of is naivety' within 3 seconds. Daniel also found out, stropped about in his internal monologue for an episode and then was also convinced by Alasdair showing him texts from Vetlust.

...and that was it, never mentioned again on Amex nor The Archers...

Ponders Fri 27-Jul-12 19:11:34

oh here we go

when 2 worlds collide


evenkeel Sun 29-Jul-12 13:34:07

See, this is just so irritating. When they started AmEx they promised that people who wanted to carry on listening to The Archers and not the new show would never be at a disadvantage - ie that there would be separate, self-contained storylines.

It's just not happening, is it? I heard the Sunday omnibus this morning with Roy getting a panicky call about Phoebe and a taxi....and of course there's been a whole string of teasers with the 'Phoebe not coming home yet' storyline. Now I find there's been some massive knife-edge drama involving all the SA lot which can't help but affect TA listeners, except we don't know anything about it.

Pah, I'm in a grump now. It might even be the last straw that stops me listening to TA altogether, given the ludicrous David & Ruth intimidation business recently <stomps off in a bate>

ppeatfruit Sun 29-Jul-12 14:01:03

Yes IKEWYM evenkeel i started a thread about the Joburg storyline (I took the bait and started listening to Amexgrin I'm afraid) IMO the S.W.'s are not thinking clearly at all.

ppeatfruit Sun 29-Jul-12 14:02:06

Duh I wasn't reading the thread title at all sorry grin

Ponders Mon 30-Jul-12 11:31:22


well done, pp - first time I've ever seen someone cross-reference their own thread when they're already on it!

ppeatfruit Mon 30-Jul-12 15:10:59

grin well I'm on 2 bleedin' Archer's threads if that 's a good excuse! we both are!!

Ponders Mon 30-Jul-12 17:08:43

I'm on 3 now

terror at Brookfield is the latest - do jump in too, pp grin

OlympiaMumsnet (MNHQ) Tue 31-Jul-12 22:50:59

ooh I am loving the amex drama

DowagersHump Wed 01-Aug-12 00:09:08

evenkeel - I do love you rather a lot for stomping off in a bate grin

OlympiaMumsnet (MNHQ) Wed 08-Aug-12 18:05:27

Quelle Strumpette!?

ObviouslyItsTheOlympics Wed 08-Aug-12 18:38:43

I think she might regret it! So is Harry gay then?

WhatSheSaid Thu 09-Aug-12 06:15:28

OlympiaMumsnet (MNHQ) Tue 14-Aug-12 21:43:33
