Robert joins Lucy this week to examine the entrails of the exchanges in Ambridge. Lucy wanted to believe that Alan had killed off the Ambridge panto but sadly it continues with the usual walkouts, disputes and rhyming couplets. Lucy states with authority that the beds in an ice hotel have a lot of rugs on them. Robert feels however that the ambient temperature will have an adverse effect on Alastair’s performance. The content then goes downhill rapidly, if that is possible.
Impending doom for the Grundies is opined. Could it be Joe passing or will the Tumble Tussock cider be worse than an e-coli outbreak? And Peggy is looking shaky too. Come on give the Grundies a good Christmas! So who will get the short straw this Christmas? Will Pip’s news be the end of Jill perhaps?
Glyn reckons that Shula has depression – but we have been there before with Mike and Pat who magically recovered in a single weekend. Perhaps it is all gong to blow up in the New Year!
The flat over the shop is owned by Hazel so is nothing to do with Peggy. We have no idea who is living there at present. Peter was adopted by Christine – she could not have children.
The absence of a proper career women in Ambridge is lambasted by Robert “who goes off on one” this week having been wound up by Emily. He seems to have forgotten Usha, Carole’s daughter, Shula running the Stables; Lucy refers to Ruth the career farmer, not to mention Jolene. The main reason we have had so many recent pregnancies is that they were missing for many years and there is a lot of catching up to do. The last four are Ruaridh, Henry, Poppy and Jack – that covers many years!
This week’s Dumteedum is from Fat Bloke Talking and his son Alex.
On this week’s episode we hear views from:
Andrew who’s a believer in the law of Grundy
Martin who’s got his eye on Tom
Glyn who thinks Shula might need to see the doctor
Witherspoon who’s angry Santa
Emily who’s angry feminist
Dusty Substances who’s desperate for a normal birth
