After a blockbuster Archers Omnibus, Lucy and Roifield deliver a blockbuster length DumTeeDum, coming in at over two hours not helped by Lucy having to explain snowdrops and Shaftesbury to Roifield.
Lucy observes that Rob’s truth addiction makes Jeffrey Archer looks like a harsh realist. She then went on to note how upset Ian was with Adam entering so many gentlemen’s buttonholes. Joe, William, Eddie and George all seem to come from different parts of the country even though they all grew up in the same village. Lucy has a new hat as health and safety advisor pointing out that cooking breakfast in the nude is highly unsafe and there are standard rom com rules on what to wear to prevent injury which Toby did not follow; she does not know what Tom did. She also gave Judge Loomis a salute for calling Rob a massive shit in legal parlance. Luckily there are no Italian listeners to complain about Lucy’s history references – but Roifield still does and then later admits she is right!
Both hosts are now anticipating a study of Rob’s angst as a serial relocator is required to stay put to look after two sons (or maybe just one?). Lady Garf Garf feels sorry for Rob – perhaps he was just trying to look after Helen? – and would like to know more, although the causes seem to be Bruce and Ursula. Rob is the new Hazel Woolley, every appearance will cause distress; will he actually try to win Helen back?
Hopefully Jan from Can will not be lonely in Vancouver much longer as Cornerstone are developing a map linkup for podcast listeners which will be on the website soonish. It will also report on elderflower cordial index.
Lucy knows Roifield lasts more than three minutes apparently. They disagree over Toby and Pip – I take Roifield’s view on this – Toby is struck by Pip and she has always fancied him – it will run.
And many other subjects are covered including Lucy’s comic door sounds. I can confirm
iIt is the first Pat and she talked the management into letting her drop her original Welsh accent.
Finally why is no-one predicting that Tom deposit within Kirsty’s front door will manifest in the patter of tiny Archers’ feet in 9 months’ time?
