The emptying of Ambridge

Chelsea’s pregnancy is beginning to look like an instrument of clearance.
Russ has left as a result. Beth has just stomped drearily off. Chelsea herself disappeared (all too briefly, alas). But am I very wrong to imagine mass flight from the village once the impending birth is established beyond doubt and week 24 and a Christmas episode that sees Chelsea - gravid, rugose, immense and malign - lolling on the green and biting the heads off the Grundys’ abandoned turkeys?

Wot, Bess eating the baby while Beth discreetly stifles the placenta? Yeah, that would work, were it not for Ambridge, in this scenario, bein’ deserted.
