Lucy is picking up high level BBC intelligence from secret drops in Epping Forest whilst she is recording Walky Talky. These drops includes this week’s DumTeeDum from Doha. Lucy then gets the order of the podcast wrong (twice) this week and Roifield leaves her apparent confusion in the final version.
20 year listener comedian Chris Neill then keeps Lucy in painful stitches (she had just been to pilates) for some 20 minutes as they discuss the ins and outs of our favourite programme. Chris first remembers listening to the death of John Archer. If he joined the cast Chris would like to live with the Grundys at Grange Farm and have a go on Tom should the opportunity arise. For the record Sean’s partner at the Cat and Fiddle was called Peter.
Lucy then did the Bartleby not Joe joke! She then explains the Archer family tree to Chris as they are all related really, but they get sidelined over Peggy. I think I should confirm that Jack and Phil Archer were brothers, which is how they are all related. Anthea went about the same time as Matt as she had had enough, so Amside must be in a mess.
The calls split into two camps this week, so lots of Pip/Toby (saying told you so mainly) followed by a slice of calls about thin Bill. Then there is a discussion on Leaving the EU – why I know not as it will happen – so the discussion should focus on achieving the best future result and not replaying the same arguments. Millie Belle does a great social media update. Paul Roome pops in with “Right You Are”.
Lucy then has some more chat with our guest and ends the podcast going off to do some drugs.
Calls this week come from:
Jo Jo Sexy Heels who says run, run from Pip
Blithe Spirit who says hurrah she was right!
Witherspoon who’s seen the two faces of Peggy
Lesley G who likes Peggy’s backbone
Lord Louise who asks did Bill die in vain?
