The bickering starts early today as Lucy is correcting Roifield before he has completed the initial introductions. Then he tries to correct Lucy on the subject of the Premier League – never mind it does improve after that. Josh is turning into grass and we have to hope that no-one gets high when he goes up in smoke.
Kosmo comments: historically the farmers used Field Reconnaissance Vehicles – but many many years ago it was agreed that they could refer to Land Rovers (most of the farmers have these) and there was a lot of fuss when Brian’s new Merc was damaged a few years ago. However brand names have to be avoided!
Lucy has been walking and talking at the same time. However she is worried about Jill – Toby is an idiot but Roifield has changed his mind about him – he does believe that Toby loves Pip – because he is not shagging about (Roifield was a little more coarse). But Toby remains an arse and is becoming less nice as time passes.
Steve the secret listener calls in – you can find out why he was in the closet for ten years! They are in a chilly Florida at the moment! Lucy is still expecting a Christmas kidnapping with Alan as negotiator as voiced by Claire from Clapham (but Roifield is not supporting this story). The Alan / Rob interactions have been outstanding in the recent weeks. Blithe Spirit is right behind Jill and feels Pip needs to be told that she has made her bed and should go and lie in it. Lucy seems to forget that Pip spent a year away in Yorkshire on another farm before her voice changed, so should be grown up. And is Brian being sold a pup by Justin? Freya from Liverpool did not hear that Rob gets no more access to Jack until 2017 under the court ruling which Lucy did hear. Andrew Horn is still enjoying the panto. Chris from Manchester wonders if footballer Benny is coming to the village.
Lucy wants a quieter 2017 both on TA and in the rest of the World. Roifield wants less farming stuff in TA next year. (I didn’t say that! – Roifield)
And Debbie is visiting for Christmas.
On this week’s episode we have calls from
Steve Smith who’s coming clean
Clare from Clapham with a plot prediction
Blithe Spirit who thinks Brian’s heading for a fall
Freya who says a happy christmas is impossible
