Roifield is away so Harriet and Lucy are in high pitched hollering harpy harness for our weekly update. Before all that however we hear tales of their childhood activities with Harriet running wild in the Wallops and Lucy still cringing with embarrassment in the supermarket at the memory of the most obvious murder mystery stories ever. And that is before Lucy tells Harriet to ignore the script! Wild and hairy roller coaster ride this week! Harriet’s grandpa’s cousin is the very wonderful Ian Carmichael of Lord Peter Wimsey fame is just one of many of Harriet’s family to get a name check.

Harriet missed Miranda’s opening – but the point was the imminent breakdown between Justin and Lilian as Lucy explained and Harriet concurred – they now sound like an old married couple. Brighton was discussed, Harriet has a new theory – she thinks it is community service. Or as Lucy thinks is it drugs? Or a “wife” and child? Will the twitter community get to vote on the actual story because no-one knows now the editor has left? Or will we end up in crocodile swamp?
Harriet was listening with her sister (who is not an Archers listener) so is able to entertain us with the views of a non-listener. A wonderful selection of callers cover Rob, Susan, Neil’s sigh and Roy’s wonderful spreadsheet – finding inventive uses for great software. Aunty Jean’s petition is linked below.
Harriet’s listening to The Archers was hindered by a courgette in her ear – at least that was her excuse. And we have Joyce Grenfell and a PE teacher to thank for Lucy getting involved in comedy. Harriet has to get a bigger pencil!
