Rob - dead? No, no, he's, er, resting. He's just pining for the Canadian plains. As Helen is taken into custardy, discuss the Archers here.

Brilliant Pseudo <admiring>

Marking. Can't be bothered to comment about the sl

Good title

Long time listener, I haven't listened for ages but I've been following via the chat forums and Facebook sites.

I've just started listening again for the stabbing and aftermath. I thought the stabbing itself was a bit zero-to-100mph-in-minutes but I'm enjoying the aftermath so far.... I think this might end up hooking me back in again.

Good for you Kirsty, what a girl.

MrsArthurShappey Mon 04-Apr-16 20:29:30

Checking in.

Don't give Peggy a slice of pie! She's the pie alibi!

What is the custard thing, btw? I only listened once, can't bear to try again, but I completely missed any reference to foodstuffs in tonight's episode. I assumed Henry had sorted pudding out, since he is an utterly unbelievable 5 year old. Step over daddy's sleeping body, get oven gloves, adjust timer on oven ...

Jolly good.


Back after pudding ...

Marking place upon new thread. Good work Pseudo.

Holy shit! I just binge-listened to the Sunday omnibus and yesterday and today's episode shock

That stabbing came out of nowhere a bit, didn't it!

Oh flip.

Still awaiting the DCs to eat the gooseberry pie. I only have cream. (DC 2 loves to whip the cream) Shame, because custard is so easy.

Wordsaremything Mon 04-Apr-16 20:46:55

I've said it before, and will say it again- bad character, anyone?

JessieMcJessie Mon 04-Apr-16 20:47:59

Someone mentioned Isha on the previous thread, said she'd have a conflict of interest because she knows Helen. More importantly, she has a conflict of interest because she owns the scene of the crime!

JessieMcJessie Mon 04-Apr-16 20:48:17

Usha, not Isha.

EnglishFern Mon 04-Apr-16 20:50:30

Custard is very straightforward, certainly.

Wordsaremything Mon 04-Apr-16 20:52:46

Conflict of interest for the defence is interesting. There was a very recent case of a barrister providing his lover with drugs at a sex party, lover then died. He was represented by his twin brother. Also a barrister.

Us ha will stay well out of it as she's not a crim specialist. Hell will need a competent solicitor and expert counsel though.

What flavour was the pie?

SmallLegsOrSmallEggs Mon 04-Apr-16 20:57:48

The pie was from.Fallon. if it is seasonal it out to be rhubarb. Of course Helen lied and claimed the pie was from Piggoi.

SuffolkNWhat Mon 04-Apr-16 20:58:52

🐮 place marking

EnglishFern Mon 04-Apr-16 20:58:59

Why wouldn't she say it was Fallon?

elephantoverthehill Mon 04-Apr-16 20:59:31

I think the pie was rhubarb and cinnamon. I could only offer my DCs Gooseberry.

sunnydayinmay Mon 04-Apr-16 20:59:47

I go to put the dcs to bed, and a new thread appears. Quicker to fill a thread than to make a saucepan of custard from scratch. smile

Wordsaremything Mon 04-Apr-16 20:59:59

It was Apple !

Welshwabbit Mon 04-Apr-16 21:03:09

Interesting that, assuming Rob doesn't have a dramatic relapse, diminished responsibility and "loss of control" (which has replaced provocation) are not partial defences to GBH, only to murder (reducing the charge to manslaughter). I wonder how the SWs are going to play the legal storyline.

I thought the build-up of this SL was really well done, but was fuming at the stabbing cop-out. I'm still fuming, but marginally less so now that he's still alive. Tonight I felt so bad for Pat and Tony; that ordinary conversation insert really heightened the awfulness of what was about to hit them.

AnnieNoMouse Mon 04-Apr-16 21:03:27

Great punning title grin

Helen is going to have to do some quick thinking - "He shouted at Henry!" is not suggesting an abusive partner.
