    It’s called septicaemia in old money. No wonder people don’t recognise if if they keep changing its name. Lucky she didn’t get lock-jaw as well.

    Septicemia Is the Infection Itself. Sepsis is your body's inflammatory reaction to a severe infection. Septicemia, meanwhile, is the infection itself — it's defined as the bacteria in the blood that causes sepsis. ... (Other types of infections, such as fungal infections, have different names.)


    I didn’t realise it was the same thing.

    I had septicaemia a few years ago. I knew I was ill, and that the doctors were concerned, but I didn’t realise how serious it was.

    It was an infected insect bite!!

    I missed last Sunday's episode and Thursday night's so it was a bit of a surprise on Friday evening. The trainer comment last night made me think it that the villagers may suspect Home Farm.
    The article above says otherwise so that's one less long drawn out drama :D

    Septicaemia leading to sepsis is blood poisoning, weltweit , which you’ve probably heard of?

    Now that we’ve squandered the gift of antibiotics we’ll be seeing more of this in the future. In the past people knew what to look for and what to do about it, but we lost the knowledge when ABx came along. Even little things like a scratch from a nail or a whitlow can cause blood poisoning, especially if someone is run down or compromised.

    I knew something bad was going to happen when Joe made a big thing about the scratch and Nic just brushed it off. And I’ve never liked Nic, never trusted her. Too sweet by half. I thought she was after Will’s money when she first turned up. So what did she confess? And what will Joe do with it? Will he confide in the vicar? Or will he burden Clarrie with it?

    I posted a link to a BBC clip which was a recording and transcript of Nic's last words.

    There's nothing which points to her confessing anything other than being a "bad" person. Which, at the end of the day, we all are...

    And I predict that Alistair and Shula will finally admit that their marriage is on the rocks.

    I also predict that Jennifer will make a total mess of her moral dilemma now that Brian has fessed up about the
    But Joe’s reaction suggests that she did say something that took him a-back.

    Joe was being pretty weird in his final scene with Nic. The whole "between this place and a better one" made my skin crawl.

    She whispers something and he says “No! No! You’re mixed up! The medicine is making you muddled!”

    That sounds as if he’s heard something that he doesn’t want to be true.

    I was shout-thinking “Stop blethering at her and call her husband back into the room! You’re wasting time!”

    I must have missed the episode that led to Jennifer's dilemma :confused: What did Brian keep secret from her?

    Thanks, I suspected as much but wasn't sure. No wonderJennifer is angry.

    I don't understand the polluted field thing. The original line was that Brian couldn't have known /been to blame because he didn't own the land when the dumping was done as they'd only just bought it from Justin. That was why Jennifer went round to Justin's accusing him. So why is it now the case that Brian is to blame because he gave permission for the dumping? How could he have authorised it if it wasn't his land?

    Not that I care. Very tedious plotline.

    So, are we all bored of the Archers at the moment then? I have to say Shula and Alistair's marital difficulties is one of the most boring story lines they've come up with in a LONG time *yawn*

    Not as boring a Freddie's gap year, mind you. Jesus Christ, who gives a shit?

    Brian (aka toxic waste man) losing the plot over his entire family usurping him is pretty hilarious though :D

    Pip's pregnancy continues to be on of the most dreary pregnancies to ever be documented, in the history of radio drama :facepalm:

    Jennifer jumped to the conclusion that it must be from the new plot of land but it wasn't.

    I still put the Archers on every evening but I find myself being distracted to the point where I hear the end music and realise I've no idea what's being going on for the last 15 minutes.

    It is pretty crap at the moment.
    Shula and alistair deserve each other. She’s an insufferable prig and he’s a boorish twat.
    William is going to go all nasty and vengeful.
    Would be good if Jennifer divorced Brian and took all his money.
