Thanks for the new thread.

TheAntiBoop Thu 08-Dec-16 17:17:14

Maybe the geese will get bird flu and Toby and pip will become the first human victims of the disease

RockNRollNerd Thu 08-Dec-16 17:18:31

Ah you see a plot like that would have been right up SOC's street AntiBoop grin.

Another great title Pseudo - thank you!

TheMortificadosDragon Thu 08-Dec-16 17:19:47

archers thanks Pseudo for once again being mine host.

ppeatfruit Thu 08-Dec-16 17:33:22

Yes thanks Psuedo once again! A good festive title I for one LOVE Tobee's interpretation of the lead role of the highly erudite Christmas entertainment that will be launched on Ambridge this year. fgrin

Helenluvsrob Thu 08-Dec-16 17:34:48

All my hobby chicken keepers are in bird flu panic. Why has it not hit borsetshire ?

enochroot Thu 08-Dec-16 17:39:36

The Ambridge geese and turkeys have all been conveniently killed and plucked already.
Fortunate. Very fortunate.

TheMortificadosDragon Thu 08-Dec-16 17:39:45

Because of josh's superior skills? Hopefully the grundys turkeys and rex's geese are safely killed and chilled by now.

Incidentally, shouldn't you update that NN?grin

Thanks for the shiny new thread Pseudo, and for the title R4.

<inhales deeply> Mmm, doncha love that new thread smell?.. grin

GypsyFl0ss Thu 08-Dec-16 18:44:56

Great title R4 , thanks Pseudo for new thread.

ColdTeaAgain Thu 08-Dec-16 18:47:14

Oooh new thread, thanks Pseudo fgrin

Yes Rob definitely enjoyed manipulating the Archer family with the contact arrangements. He won't be able to do that anymore. As he will now have very little opportunity to see Jack, I have a feeling he will start focussing his attention on Henry again in order to make life difficult for Helen....Helen needs to get restraining orders in place if she hasn't already!

redshoeblueshoe Thu 08-Dec-16 18:52:21

fsmile thanks for the new thread Psuedo, great title R4 archers

WipsGlitter Thu 08-Dec-16 19:02:54

I wondering if they would incorporate the bird flu situation!

lottiegarbanzo Thu 08-Dec-16 19:04:52

The thing about justin and Rob 'not being convicted of anything'. I mentioned this on the last thread but - Justin has employed Rob because of his pariah status, not despite it.

Justin did think Rob was competent, even good at his job. That's necessary to his employment but it's not why he's employed.

The point is that everything Rob needs - income, status, ability to remain near Ambridge - is provided by Justin. Thus, Justin owns Rob. Rob can be used to do all Demara's unseemly early dealings, then disposed of just before he causes embarrassment.

The fact that a Rob is scheming, manipulative and unscrupulous is a bonus!

TheAntiBoop Thu 08-Dec-16 19:09:32

The bijou house with three bedrooms?

Anisha is sounding like a bitch

Like the drop in about the 'tea planter' - lets squeeze in a cultural reference eh

TheAntiBoop Thu 08-Dec-16 19:11:20

Doormat David is back then

GypsyFl0ss Thu 08-Dec-16 19:11:30

Rob is sounding a little hinged in a dramatic Dickensian kind of way.

GypsyFl0ss Thu 08-Dec-16 19:11:58

And Pip is sounding like a bloke. Again.

GrumpyOldHorsewoman Thu 08-Dec-16 19:12:08


TheAntiBoop Thu 08-Dec-16 19:13:48

She has the most awful delivery. And she sounds so smug all the time

Tbf rob sounded genuinely distressed. He's a good actor.

Still it liking the sound of anisha
