Sorry haven't read through all of the mahoosive Archers threads, but I was just wondering where Ian was? I missed out a bunch late 2015 as I couldn't bear to hear Rob so I must have missed a plot turn, but I thought Ian was supposed to be Helen's BFF. Surely he should be stepping up to help out now, or at least checking in with Tom etc?

We're all wondering that! Knob engineered a falling out between Ian and Helen by having a nice little chat with Ian on the eve of his wedding day about his and Adam's 'open relationship'. It was truly awful to listen to, as Ian had to pretend he knew what Knob was talking about so as to not lose face. So Knob told Ian about Adam and Charlie (implying there was far more to it than a kiss) and said Helen had seen them, and also mentioned Pawel, which a pissed Jennifer had blabbed to Knob about. So then after several days of avoiding an oblivious Helen, she bullied him into having coffee with her and he had a huge go at her and they haven't spoke since. In fact, Ian has barely even been mentioned since.

It's ridiculous!

Ok, I HAD actually caught all of that but thought surely there must be more too it then that. I mean, Ian is a always banging on about how could friends they are and how she can ask him for anything because that's what friends are for. And I thought he had the same creepy vibes that Kirstie had re Knob.
I mean, surely he would have checked in with her at the very least.

It's a ridiculous plot device to ensure Helen was isolated from friends and family when knob really ramped up the abuse. Ian HATED knob on sight, he punched him in front of Sir Wiggo ffs! Yes, it was a bit shit of Helen not to tell him about the kiss but I can't believe he'd just completely drop her (especially whilst going on to marry Adam and keep up the charade!).

Just one of many characters around Helen with a personality transplant!

Ian has been mentioned in the last week, because he made the super posh picnic for Adam and Brian and David for their no till farming day out to Lincolnshire.

Oh yes, I remember that being mentioned on t'other thread (still not listening!). Ridiculous that he's saying nothing about Helen though. I'm hoping he'll pull his head out his arse and go and visit her, and she'll break down (in a good cathartic way iyswim) and it will all come out. That's what I'd like.

Think he also sent some flowers to the hospital yesterday.

There will probably be a new TA thread today - so you could start from the beginning of that ...
