In full acknowledgement of PseudoBadger's great achievement in providing the previous 79 threads over the past 4 years (and credit to R4 for this thread's title)...

Discuss TA (The Archers). New posters encouraged - it's not (too) cliquey here and plenty of regulars are happy to answer questions. archers

One rule: no spoilers (ie no mentioning future plot teasers from Radio Times listings etc) - there's a separate thread for that.

So, is Phoebe pregnant? will Anisha dob in (dobbin - geddit?) Alistair?

PS I don't presume to take on PB's role permanently - hopefully the job of starting new threads will rotate among regulars until she returns

Oh thinking about it, Lily as Emma Woodhouse , the spoiled pretty rich girl in the BIG house, yes I can just see it, sorry R4!,

Brilliant title DadDadDad!

Gasp0deTheW0nderD0g Wed 16-Aug-17 14:00:58

Great title! Thanks to Pseudo, DDD and R4.

DadDadDad Wed 16-Aug-17 14:05:37

Thanks, Victoria - the witty part of the title comes from R4 (the poster, not the channel) - but I do like numbering things.

Thanks, DDD!

Just checking in.

Nice work D^3 and R4

DadDadDad Wed 16-Aug-17 15:13:14

Well, this is going well so far, isn't it? grin

Now, stop all this mutual back-patting, and get on with discussing TA! angry

I notice The Telegraph (and its commenters) getting a bit cross about contemporary storylines:

Thanks Dad3. Blatant place marking. Enjoyable listening to young females who are NOT PIP. The difference in acting is marked.

Phoebe is very close to Freddy and Lily as when they were tiny Halley was a Nanny to the twins. So they basically spent their pre-school years together. So they are much closer to each other than their other cousins.

Many thanks to Pseudo for past Sterling (geddit!) work and to Dad*3 and R4 for fab title and starting the thread. smile

Placemarking on an Archers thread for the first time in a long time!
Hope pseudo enjoys her internet break.
Thanks, Dx3, for the new thread. And thanks, R4, for the title.

Well done in getting your thread number in there DDD !

MrsArthurShappey Wed 16-Aug-17 20:29:09

There's a new sheriff in town! Have been on holiday - I'm 2 weeks behind on the threads but have almost caught up with TA so..... I'll be back.

AuldHeathen Wed 16-Aug-17 20:41:44

Lovely thread. Thanks to all concerned.

I'm raking around for a character in Ambridge & environs who'd be a suitable contender for Mr Knightley. He'd have to be a bit older than Emma/Lily, have money, be kind and sensible and available, and look like Jeremy Northam. <swoon>

R4 Wed 16-Aug-17 21:31:52

We need two Knightleys, though. Any possibilities apart from the FairBretheren?
Unless we go for a brother & sister (for Freddie) combo - do you remember Basti and Neesha. Whatever happened to them?

Imbroglio Wed 16-Aug-17 21:38:38

There is still plenty of time for a pair of Knightleys to pitch up.

Imbroglio Wed 16-Aug-17 21:39:19

Three cheers for Emma tonight.

Travelledtheworld Wed 16-Aug-17 23:10:19

Imbroglio Thought that was another Jane Austen reference lol.

Hello all

Thank you D^3 for the new thread, Pseudo for your huge contribution to the community & to R4 for providing title inspiration.

I thought Emma Grundy was brilliant tonight, I hope she & Ed actually get one of the houses, maybe Justin as developer can fix things to ensure they do?

Poor Anisha must be wondering what she's signed up for.

ppeatfruit Thu 17-Aug-17 07:27:22

I thought that Rex was doing a passable 'Knightley' giving Anisha sensible advice, she's very immature. I like him.
