Radio Times Ambridge Diary Dec 9-14
Lynda is being surprisingly stoical as David delivers yet more bad news following the latest setback with The Canterbury Tales. But Ben suspects she’s more upset than she’s letting on.
At Lower Loxley Elizabeth continues to act erratically and makes a strange decision that sparks concern. And when a familiar face shows up to put the cat among the pigeons, Lily is left with some serious explaining to do.
Brian, meanwhile, is continuing to throw all his efforts into finding a new home for him and Jenny - and with the clock ticking, he enlists the help of Lilian. Which sounds like a recipe for disaster. After all, Lilian’s only requirements for a home are to have a hot tub and be near an off-licence.

Tom asks Kirsty for advice about his future! Yes, Kirsty - the woman he left howling at the altar! The sheer brass neck of the man never fails to amaze.
That serial adulterer and land poisoner, Brian - also known for his brass neck - scours the county in desperate search of a home; it couldn’t have happened to a nicer man,could it?
The Widow Pargetter, who seems quite deranged by worries, makes more weird decisions that Lily will have to sort out, while nice but boring Christine makes her own strange decisions about Christmas. Just be glad that she has no plans to spend it with you.
Meanwhile, Lynda hides her feelings, Will struggles, worthy Pat gets an extravagant gift, and there’s a life-or-death dash up at Brookfield.
