She is definitely gold digging isn't she?
I am listening to the omnibus, I wish I had said to DH before we got married, "how can I be a PROPER wife to you when I am at work 4 days a week?" grin wink

I know and she's making him buy all new stuff for the house including a breakfast set (wtf is a breakfast set).

Betty will be turning in her grave.

I'm really enjoying the storyline though, much better than Lillian and Matt which is getting a bit boring now.

seeker Thu 16-Jul-09 10:42:01

But has he got all that much gold to dig? Maybe the cunning plot twist is that it is true love after all?

Yurtgirl Thu 16-Jul-09 11:44:28

Oooh she is irritating!

I agree wtf is a breakfast set?

She is way too enthusiastic to be genuine surely

ugh at the teddies collection

OliviaMumsnet (MNHQ) Thu 16-Jul-09 11:51:51

Could be worse - could be this kind of teddy this is what I reckon she'll be wearing in the isle of wight grin
<gets back to work>

traceybath Thu 16-Jul-09 11:53:44

I like her purely because whe annoys Brenda so much and i can't stand her smile

Yurtgirl Thu 16-Jul-09 12:02:32

Olivia - that picture looks how I imagine Vicki to look - the facial expression on the model I mean

Scary

surprise openings shock

Get back to work woman you are polluting my mind

littlelamb Thu 16-Jul-09 12:03:42

O my eyes shock

* Underwire demi-cup teddy
* Revealing openings for big surprises
* High-cut leg openings
* Convenient snap crotch

<faints>

dearie me. not what i expected on an archers thread.

i am enjoying the lizzie / linda unholy alliance. scriptwriters have gone mad they usually hate each other.

littlelamb Thu 16-Jul-09 12:08:28

And however did you stumble across that website Olivia, hmm? wink

Yurtgirl Thu 16-Jul-09 12:12:47

That was my thought littlelamb

NigellaTufnel Thu 16-Jul-09 12:43:06

Is the wedding tonight? I missed it last night.

I reckon that Mike will be out of his new home by Christmas, with Vicki taking him for all he's got.

Actually, how long do you have to be married before you get half of all your partner's loot?

Maybe she'll do a runner...

<awaits the AIBU thread from Justine complaining about her colleagues accessing dodgy lingerie sites during working hours>

wink

I suspect there's someone else in the background, a sick relative, old flame something like that. Won't be revealed for a little while and then she'll take him to the cleaners.

Poor Brenda, I don't mind her and Vicky is clearly very embarrassing.

retiredgoth2 Fri 17-Jul-09 09:22:35

Firstly; is her name spelt 'Vicky', 'Vicki', or, heaven forbid, 'Vikki'.

....I consulted the Oracle (or the character list on the Archers website, anyway) and she has yet to be promoted to this hallowed hall of fame.

...the irritation she occasions to Brenderr is most welcome. However, the sound of Tom (my least favoured character) being all liberal and conciliatory makes me feel all queasy...

Not as queasy as the thought of Vicki trussed up in the linked-to lingerie, though.

Is she materialistic? Of course. Acquisitive? Possibly. Vulgar? As sure as is Papal catholicism.

(I mean.... glittery cleavage? Lordy. I also have little doubt that there is a cute character, possibly 'Hollie Hobbie' in nature, attached by suction cups to the rear window of her pristine Kia hatchback)

However, I venture that she is, at heart, OK. I envisage a story line, a year or two hence, in which previously hidden generosity is clunkily revealed....

MagNacarta Fri 17-Jul-09 09:26:58

retiredgoth - I do love your posts.

However I feel sure you are wrong, there'll be somthing up - she's not going to go all Clary Grundie.

Perhaps an affair with Brian, afterall most youngish women in the village have and he has already remarked that she's attractive.

traceybath Fri 17-Jul-09 09:28:44

The thing is she started off ok and then the archers criptwriters did that thing that they often do where they totally change a character overnight.

retiredgoth2 Fri 17-Jul-09 09:37:38

....if an affair is in the offing, MagNacarta, might I suggest Prof Jim as a likely beau.

After all, he seems to be minted, and displays a liking for, er, rustic charm. Ahem.

...I imagine them eloping (to a Classics convention in a Blackpool bingo hall, perhaps) in Jim's vintage Triumph Herald, a faint hint of glitter visible in their swirling trail....

<Thinks: Must get off the interweb with my unholy fantasies and clean the kitchen.>

Snorbs Fri 17-Jul-09 09:46:14

Ah, so you reckon she could be the replacement "Tart with a heart" now that Jolene's all settled down and house-wifey? I could see that.

I would rather hope that they've got something a bit more exciting lined up for her, though. Say, Mike discovering that she's a bigamist and she's already married to five other men, two women and a marmoset named Trevor. Or she's a male-to-female transexual or something.

By the way, I'd bet money that she spells it Vicqui. Written with little hearts over the 'i's.

CoffeeCrazedMama Fri 17-Jul-09 10:32:22

Ooh, Snorbs, I like the bigamy angle. I am still in shock that some un-divorced, secret husband didn't crash the wedding, Mr Rochester's-brother-in-law-like, and stop it all. I'd felt sure the scriptwriters weren't really going to condemn Mike to a legal entanglement with this ghastly woman.

lol at idea of affair with Jim - though agree, Retiredgoth, he does seem to have plently of money. As dh bitterly commented (he always tries to pretend he's not listening but then asks questions while I'm listening, most annoying) when he realised Jim was a retired academic - 'no wonder, he's probs on a full final salary academic pension!' grin

TsarChasm Fri 17-Jul-09 10:55:51

I'm sorry to lower the tone on a Radio4 thread, but just as an aside - my TV guide/what's on (Daily Mail - sorryblush) writes a little Archers update, which keeps referring to Mike as The One-Eyed Milkman...That's er..a bit y'know, rude isn't it??!shockgrin

I didn't know he only had one eye. Why am I even bothered? I don't even know him!<makes note to get a life>

retiredgoth2 Fri 17-Jul-09 11:42:27

I sincerely hope that the term 'One Eyed Milkman' is not a smutty innuendo....

TsarChasm Fri 17-Jul-09 12:02:47

Er...weeeell..<coughs>

MagNacarta Sat 18-Jul-09 11:46:51

one eyed milkman grin.

Affair with Jim is good but too obvious. What about Burt Fry, perhaps Freida will finally emerge to fight it out with Viqui?

R4 Sat 18-Jul-09 21:58:28

Re the spelling of her name: it is probably Vici.


As in veni vidi vici.
