    I thought Oliver was very restrained

    eddie takes the piss frankly and deserves his just deserts. Clary deserves better.

    I missed the last 5 minutes but what an irony throwing food to protest about waste :rolleyes:

    Did she get charged?

    So , is nemesis due for the Grundy's at Grange Farm ? - local housing seems to be one of the issues at the moment (or the divide between the Two Nations of Ambridge)

    I'm actually enjoying Emma's storyline. She's a more interesting character than Oliver anyway.

    I heard the man who plays Justin on the radio the other day, his voice is exactly as irritating in real life as when he's being Justin.

    They've still not heard of TUPE rights in Ambridge, then.

    I can't listen since they went all "listening to the listeners comments" and decided that, instead of bringing in an Nth successive identikit MC man from Surrah to play a part, they'd bring in an identikit man from Surrah and get him to ham up Yokel / somewhere SW, combine it with a total personality transplant, and call it "Chris."

    I lunged for the off switch half way through his yammering contest with Emma, and haven't felt able to risk it since.

    I was startled to find out who plays Justin, and it has spoilt my mental image of him.

    Just had a look; nope, that's definitely him!

    (Unlike eg Lizzy and Alice).

    I always thought Justin was a bit fat and smug looking, and not at all attractive. I couldn't really see why Lilian was attracted to him.

    Simon Williams is gorgeous, despite the upper class look (or perhaps because of it?)

    Silly, silly boy Adam. Walked into an obvious Matt trap.

    They needed sth to make fragile short term memories forget the shrooms, so that hundreds of elderlies weren’t running to complain come 19:14.

    also - did Matt go to the ball? I know he demanded a ticket but I thought he was in the Bull... or was he walking to the ball when it happened?

    Obviously not Justin. That would be a feeble plot-line too far.

    I think Freddy and Noli out of their heads on 'shrooms.

    I don't really follow The Archers so I'm not familiar with the current or past plots taking place, but I do put it on occasionally. I did so the other day and was more than a little bit surprised to listen to two of the characters getting shitfaced on magic mushrooms. Not what I'd expected :D

    It'll be the Russian mafia from that bizarre spin off a few years back.

    planetgeli There's no future in England's dreaming

    And yet, in a rural setting, one that could easily have been played out every year.

    "Why's Jill on 'er back stroking the grass?"
    "Oh, y'know, another bumper October harvest."
    "The mushrooms you mean?"
    "That's the one."
    "Oh, right. 'ow about those nasty property developers then?"
    "Well it could be good for the cricket team."

    etc.

    Or not. It'll end in tears. It's the law.

    Seems like Adam, Justin and Shula are all missing a bit of time.

    Matt is clearly legging it with something he shouldn't have/from someone.

    I had one of those moments earlier where your mental picture of a character is blown apart ... In my head Matt is middle aged and sprightly, when Lexi described Adam as hitting 'that old man' I realised Lillian just turned 70 didn't she? So Matt must be much older than I imagine him.

    I always imagine Matt as Dave Hedgehog as it sounds just like Christopher Ryan.
