    A380 How do I change this 'custom title' thing then?

    Tom's reaction seems to be a storyline bolted on to a character that doesn't really fit previous behaviour.

    I thought Christopher had had a voice change too. Can't be bothered to google though.

    I am still shocked at the £20k it took to repair the tractor !! :)

    Trying to think if there's a single likeable character with the surname Archer.

    Why did no one tell me that Friday's episode was worth listening to?

    :)

    Is it actually worth listening to? Does anything happen?

    It's been bloody awful of late

    Well I only got into it while Rob versus Helen was on so since then I agree not much has been happening but I still usually make an effort to listen either live or on catchup.

    On Friday Pip dumped lying scumbag so that was a little action .. :)

    I might make an effort to hear the omnibus tomorrow then :thumbs:

    I don't tend to listen to the omnibus. I find I can usually find 14 minutes during the week to listen (either live or later) but not an hour on a Sunday.

    Toby is such a cretin, so used to winging it and falling on his feet.

    I don't get what Matt is up to at all. But I thought Lillians attitude to the divorce was interesting... Oh to have so much money floating around!

    Presumably the Independent Republic of Borchester isn't having an election :rolleyes:

    You surely wouldn't leap into a 'million £' deal on the eve of a general election :confused:

    I listened with half an ear to the latest wheeler-dealing over the development land and can only conclude the script is written by children. Or at least someone who assumes that everyone else is.

    I have two nonagenarian grandmothers who are quite Proper ... Jill makes them sound easygoing and chilled out compared to her 'aarrgghh the Fairbrothers' angst, I'm not surprised Pip cba with her stupidity.

    Delighted that the "Mustardland" forum , for true Archers obsessives has been taken down , one particular woman on there so dominated it , it was even more painful than looking at the Daily Mail on line. "Ambridge Observer" is excellent and witty though.

    Always hold out for the omnibus on a Sunday. Often disapointed.

    i hope they go for this idea of a Russian Revolution re=enactment for this years fete

    I don't understand the Tom/Justin thing. I was at Glastonbury and I don't think I've caught up in the right order...

    Justin said he'd give £1m for a field, Tom said yah boo I can do better, something happens - did justin speak to the other people?? ... Justin drops his offer to £850k ... but then Justin goes on about wanting to be family and teaching Tom a lesson.

    umm...

    That sounds about right. Except that iirc it was Matt who told him he could get a better deal.

    Can't wait for all these hand wringing do-gooders to come a cropper.

    Was expecting it though as the actress died earlier this year.

    I'd forgotten. Tuned in a bit late and was trying to work out who it was, and then remembered :(

    The actress hoped her character would continue but it's probably right to kill her off.
    Oliver seems to have gone a bit mad though

    A380 How do I change this 'custom title' thing then?

    I thought that was a rationale response to the cartoon bad behaviour of Eddie and Joe; but it's been obvious it was coming since they started cooking up the whole Air B&B story line for it.

    Will the (whining) Grundy family get (deservedly in my opinion) , kicked out of Grange Farm ? .......
