Radio Times Ambridge Diary Aug 19-24
It’s been one disaster after another for Elizabeth of late, but what reaction will she get when she asks the villagers for help? Will they come to her aid, or will she end up accepting support from someone she really shouldn’t?
The summer holidays are proving a strain for Helen - and with Henry’s behaviour becoming progressively worse, she’s soon facing another problem when a guilty Ian drops a bombshell.
With the cricket team numbers dwindling, one Ambridge resident finds herself unexpectedly recruited.
Fallon, meanwhile, is upset to discover the rumours circulating about Harrison and hatches a plan to save him from further strain.

Daily Mail Weekend Magazine Archers Update
Keep your head down if you’re visiting Ambridge this week. A press gang roams the lanes looking for players for the village cricket team, and the hot summer has hammered the pitch into a killing field.
The summer has also turned Henry, never our favourite child, into a fiend, and Helen has no idea what to do.
Elizabeth, also driven to her wits end by her son, finds herself leaning in a dangerous direction for support, while Jim - who, like most of us, has never been a Shula fan - offers support to his sullen son.
Rumours smoulder about flame haired Burns, which Fallon does her best to stamp out, while, as the Ambridge summer glowers on, one man keeps his cool and comes to the rescue - Oliver!

#2

What can that be? We know that Ian is firing blanks, so he can’t be the boy’s father.


#3

Oh God help me - can the story lines get any more tedious!
I thought Helen was getting an interesting plot -no - poxy cheese!
Jim - hello son -remember when you were in short trousers?
just to cheer you up I BOOKED YOU A PIANO LESSON!!! wtf!
I really feel that everything has lost it’s way
I don’t want to listen anymore- is it me?


#4

Well, it’s certainly not only you.


#5

I’ve taken to only listening if someone says it may be worthwhile.


#6

Can’t see why one would want to listen if not for the pleasure of picking it to bits. It has little intrinsic merit.
