Radio Times Ambridge Diary Sep 15-20


Ian is mightily put out when Oliver pitches the idea of Freddie being given a job in the Grey Gables kitchen. The last thing Ian wants is a convicted drug dealer working for him, but he eventually relents and offers Freddie a trial. Will the ex-con be able to prove himself?
Tempers are fraying elsewhere, too, when Kate questions Ruth’s parenting abilities and Pip leaps to her mum’s defence. Will the fracas lead to a thaw at Brookfield?
Kate is also facing flak from Peggy, and is reaching the end of her tether when her grandmother tries to teach her a lesson.
And despite Eddie’s advice not to, Ed ends up selling one of his young rams at market, determined to give the money raised to Emma and the kids.

“It’s not the money, it’s the principle of the thing. But leave the cash anyway.”
