DTD: 181 – Emma’s and Ed’s stirring speeches – This is Ambridge!

This week’s Dumteedum is from Sally Hodgson who sent this in months ago but it fell down the back of the Dumteedum sofa and only got retrieved last week. On this week’s episode we have views from Aunty Jean who has a comment about stallion’s danglers Blithe Spirit and Claire from Clapham who both love Lexie Witherspoon who says hurrah for Ed and Abi from Brighton who thinks Kate could be the answer for Roy


DTD: 180 – Lillian lathers her loofah

Naked Fingers leads off this episode before Lucy’s stunning monologue which really was a lot better than last week’s monologue! Naked Fingers is less complimentary – but blames the alcohol he is consuming – which more impact on his mouth than we might expect when it comes head rerrings! Excuse me what is this bit about me being boring? Not the first I have been savaged on air by Lucy! Then Naked Fingers says they love all their listeners! The ups and downs at The Stables are discussed – once again the impact of EastEnders and raised voices is overlooked […]


DTD: 179 – Jill Archer arrested in flapjack assault

Roifield is Roifield again this week whilst Angela Barnes is in Edinburgh busy preparing for Fortitude and has been unable to shoehorn writing a monologue onto the week. Where is Lucy? We should be told. They discuss alcoholics and name Jack Archer and Darrell but overlook George Barford who was rescued from his addiction by the long forgotten Nora McAuley.  Morris the butcher has mentioned losing his business due to addiction, but that may have been gambling. Lots of discussion of Jill this week and the generally expressed view is favourable.  Whilst her current protest is reasonable given her history […]


DTD: 178 – Oliver loses his head and a jug is smashed

Angela Barnes is standing or more likely sitting in for Lucy for this week and delivers a super monologue of the week. Hay Bales sing the DumTeeDum and also call in later but they have clearly not read my guide for first time callers on our website.  Who are you Hay?  Angela was led astray from discussing The Archers by Roifield who wanted to know about one of her dates and toothpaste but the story of Colgate is that it never happened. I would fear for Roifield’s life as he preferred this week’s monologue to last week’s. As Angela will […]

DTD: 177 – Caroline remembered

Robert Wilson leads off this week by bursting two tyres in Wales – and he thanks the helpful residents of Nantmor.  Derek has been investigating fermented foods from his compost heap.  Just in case you think that The Archers is all made up the musical “Hair” is being revived this year with a new immersive production.  I assume immersive means the audience are underwater – see this: https://www.londontheatre.co.uk/theatre-news/news/new-immersive-production-of-hair-to-run-at-the-vaults-in-london  Will Lucy be going? Discussion of Caroline’s death dominates this week’s podcast for obvious reasons.  I would like my say.  Throughout her village existence Caroline followed her heart; she might not be religious, […]


DTD: 176 – The over privileged Phoebe and the hatefully sexist Will Grundy

Following the DumTeeDum from Toronto Shambridges delivers a wonderful eulogy on the subject of smoke detectors in recognition of our new sponsor ADT! Surprisingly after a week off Roifield is struggling with the script this week, obviously out of practice.  He then admits to being 48.  He does not understand the problem of Lilian revealing her age – particularly to an intended husband.  Then there is a suggestion that a contributor may have been under the ‘fluence after celebrating Bastille Day!  I think it is Roifield as part of his contribution is obliterated with music! Little support for Will this […]


DTD: 175 – Justin’s land deal gets the once over

Naked Fingers aka Robert Wilson is with Lucy this week.  I used to work with a Robert Wilson but do not think it is the same one.  I think Lucy might need a new microphone.  Lucy predicts that Jill has developed an allergy to bees and will have to pass them onto Kirsty.  Or possibly to Hilda Ogden who continues to make her presence felt.  Will’s current unpleasantness is discussed at some length as he becomes a grumpy old man.  The voice has always been irritating. The interactions between Bridge Farm and Justin are discussed.  No-one actually knows how to […]


DTD: 174 – Jill and Kirsty do bees and Tom gets a spanking from Justin

Fat Bloke Talking provided this week’s DumTeeDum and this link might explain what a “Minecraft Note Block” actually is: http://minecraft.gamepedia.com/Note_Block   Fat Bloke Talking also entertains with his blog: https://whatrobdidnext.wordpress.com/ Roifield returns to a podcast hot seat but Derek is taking the week off in hospital having attended GoddessDeeva’s wedding.  However in the same way that Millie Belle and Yokel Bear do week on and week off, in future Roifield and Naked Fingers are adopting the same job share arrangement – which seems odd as none of the them have had any children recently (but are they all attention-seeking drama-queens?). Roifield surprises us […]


DTD: 173 – Johnny and Freddie do the Isle of Wight

Naked Fingers returns to once again use his voice which seems to assert his natural authority. Regrettably we did not hear the outcome of the hot date from last week – was it cab or coffee?  We need to know. In her stunning monologue Lucy makes it very clear that she has now seen through Justin and is certain that we shall soon return to the pusscat/Tiger years. As ever Naked Fingers liked her monologue this week. Meanwhile we all await Lillian’s mega-apology to Lynda, could be the largest humble pie Lilian has ever baked.  The last person to make […]


DTD: 172 – Pip and Rex are discussed along with Freddie’s lack of brains

This week Naked Fingers (aka Robert Wilson) is sharing host duties with Lucy. A brief profile of Naked Fingers.  He is 46, lives in or near Oxford, may have left wing tendencies, has not lived with anyone for 20 years but has dabbled in polytunnels and he had a hot date possibly with another DumTeeDummer later the same evening.  He also seems very knowledgeable on recreational drug use, although he did not drink until he was 21; Lucy equates this to Roifield listening to Radio 4.  He knows a beautiful EHO lady apparently.  Naked Fingers is 3st lighter and is […]
