I remember Emma getting a bit snitty with Ed when Will/Nick were getting married and Ed wasn't interested in doing likewise but I honestly don't remember them marrying. Did they get the usual tedious radiotimes photoshoot?
DDD I'm sure it'll all come flooding back to you.....what will Clarrie wear?....why didn't Eddie pay the insurance premiums....will Will be the best man?......villagers all coming together blah blah....
Yes, Vango, I can look up Lowfields too, but it seemed magical the way you retrieved the date so quickly (but I appreciate a bit of judicious googling probably does it!) - even when I knew to look in May 2015, it took me a while in Lowfields to find the right episode.
I find it weird how much I do remember from TA even storylines from when I was a child (which I presumably heard parents mention). I have never been the devoted listener it would suggest (my excuse for forgetting Ed'n'Emmur).
And of course Lowfield still carries on even if it isn't Chris doing the updates these days.
My memories of TA are all the more perplexing since I regularly have spates of calling my children and siblings by each others' names
Sorry but as I have repeatedly told my children, birth control is not 100% effective - and a lot of their friends were conceived when their parents were using highly effective forms. But Ambridge does seem to have a special something that increases the chances of failure. (Although a Church I used to go to did too, vasectomy was the only sure solution.) I did wince when Pip went to take care of the Ewes. Unlike Kirsty, without taking care she could be at serious risk of miscarriage.

All soaps do - and it's probably not so unrealistic. Quite a few of my friends' first babies, and last babies, we're not planned as such. Wanted at some point, in a stable relationship, but not planned at that point. (One of them even had a PhD in something to do with spontaneous abortion in sheep.) So not quite the same circs as Pip.
But yes, they should be more clued up about fertility and so on. Plus in places like Albert Square, they've got to get on with things before one of the parents is murdered, which isn't really a risk factor in Borsetshire.
