I cant believe how selfish and thoughtless Kenton has become, attempting to push Fallon/Reece out of The Bull,just because his bored with Jax and wants to have a cushy life funded by Jolene ! angry

Apart from Jill being anti hunting which IS far out in Amb. grin

ppeatfruit Fri 26-Oct-12 08:32:39

Yes I could never work out why they were called those weird names esp. as you say princess Jill and Phil were NEVER way out AFAICR grin.

Rhys name comp - I may be imagining it, was it on R4 somewhere? Broadcasting house perhaps?

I've never heard of a Kenton/Shula either!

PseudoBadger Thu 25-Oct-12 21:49:19

Remember the momentous moment when that hussy silent Sabrina Thwaite miaowed during the Christmas play?

heronsfly Thu 25-Oct-12 21:40:48

I seem to remember my mother informing me that Kenton and Shula were names made up from scrabble letters, she was totally mad though so might not be true.grin

Ah, not surprised that Don's been mentioned on the Archers previously and I just missed it ... (soup brain).

Agree re: Freda. And do you think Derek Fletcher would be runner-up in any "Archers' silent character competition"?

Also agree re: Kenton and Shula. Especially as they were named by that avant-garde couple, Jill and Phil confused.

A competition to name him?!
I would like to enter a name an Archers character competition
(surely this is where Kenton/Shula came from?!)
I have never heard either of these names in RL ever.

Catmint Wed 24-Oct-12 22:50:08

Wasn't rhys a silent & nameless person & then there was a competition to name him? And he suddenly aquired a personality.

Freda is the best silent character.

YY about Will's inconsistent guineapig buying habits, I have fumed over this!

Joyce and Arthur and the slow-motion disaster with the bathroom floorboards was ex ... cru ... cia .... ting. We all knew what was going to happen but it took so bloody long.
I quite like Rhys - I think he and Fallon are a good match.

GrendelsMum Wed 24-Oct-12 22:43:10

No, I think we must have heard of Don at the very least, because we heard all about how Kenton got together the backers for Jacks, and he had to get Jim and another, more commercially minded guy.

I couldn't remember Naomi, htough.

PrincessFiorimonde Wed 24-Oct-12 22:36:37

(Psst ppeatfruit: Alastair's dad is Jim.)

I think Naomi's been mentioned before, but I don't remember Don being name-checked before this job thing. Maybe just my memory.

I've never found Kenton very interesting. But think we're supposed to think he's that free spirit of whom MrsDeVere speaks so fondly. E.g. he gets on well with kids (apart from, ermm, abandoning his own) because he has a childish childlike nature. Something like that.

There have always been silents. I'm more worried about the people who are suddenly given a speaking part such as Joyce and Arthur <yawn>

ppeatfruit Tue 23-Oct-12 16:21:14

Is it me or have the S.W's invented a whole load of people other than Kenton and whatisname the old guy father of Alaistair? to be owners of Jax? and interview Fallon. Also Naomi??

WhatSheSaid Mon 22-Oct-12 19:59:19

I reckon Fallon and Jazzer together would be quite good now he's had a personality transplant become interested in the Classics due to Jim's influence, he's being portrayed as a bit more of a sensitive soul.

heronsfly Mon 22-Oct-12 18:38:27

Actually. despite my moaning, I'm quiet enjoying the storylines at the moment,I loved the moment when Paul rushed to Lillians side in her hour of need.
All we need now is to shove Emma, Kathy and Kenton into the slurry tank, unite Fallon and Jazzer, and Paul and Puss, and everyones happy grin

OliviaMumsnet (MNHQ) Mon 22-Oct-12 18:31:04

Wel yes. She also perhaps needs to be less enthusiastic to hey nonny nonny with Lynda.

Panzee Mon 22-Oct-12 18:12:57

I was most disappointed that Fallon felt the need to seek approval from Rhys and Jazzer for her move to Jaxx. She needs to move to Lindin and join a band ASAP.

You've summed it up in a nutshell, Olivia.

She fancied him, but wasn't going to abandon Tiger for him due to mistaken loyalty, despite the fact that Paul is clearly much nicer.

OliviaMumsnet (MNHQ) Mon 22-Oct-12 11:42:47

Just refresh my memory on the Paul backstory?
He is Tiger's birth brother?? that Pusscat looked up when T was in the clink?
And she fancied him?
Then what....

ppeatfruit Mon 22-Oct-12 09:25:01

Don't forget that Lil is also a good time woman and maybe Paul is a bit 'straight' for her grin

ppeatfruit Mon 22-Oct-12 09:23:15

Yeah queen When was Fallon even in a proper relationship? But with Jazzer being house trained it'll be a bitter contest for her affections between Rhys and him IMO! Now Harry's out of the way

queenofthepirates Sun 21-Oct-12 23:55:50

I'm quite enjoying the Rhys and fallon thing, it will be nice to see her with a good bloke at last

Sorry, I am getting a little too excited. I really want Lillian to be with Paul, Matt has gone tooooo far.

seeker Sun 21-Oct-12 23:20:08

I'm bored by the Archers, which I find incredibly depressing. It used to be bonkers- but, with a good stretch of the imagination, credible. Now they are just taking the piss. Do you think the script writers think it's only old people who listen to it, and obviously old people don't matter?

Apart from anything else, it's all the abandoned story lines that get me. What happened about Amy finding out about her mother being in prison, or whatever it was? And Alasdair and Natalie? To name but two?
