The Archers

Wednesday, 24 November

Ruth lets slip to Alan about online comments on his cider consumption at the Grundys’ vow renewal on Sunday. George made a GIF of Alan worse for wear. Ruth shows it to Alan, who rushes to Grange Farm and explains the situation to Ed. Ed, who’s in the middle of capturing an escaped turkey, promises to get George to take down the GIF. He ropes in Alan to the turkey catching but a call from the Bishop quickly excuses Alan – he needs to stay on the Bishop’s good side! Later Alan reports to Ruth that the Bishop had been sent the offending GIF and is less than impressed. As punishment, the Bishop has ordered Alan to give a keynote speech at a multi-faith charity fundraiser between Christmas and New Year. It means hours of extra work at a time when he’s already really busy. Ed and Oliver discover that more than one turkey has absconded, before figuring out the straw barrier in the pole barn isn’t high enough. Oliver wonders aloud why the turkeys would choose to put themselves in danger of being eaten by a fox outside. Ed asks him to focus, they need to work quickly to round up all the escaped turkeys. Their attempts to catch them are haphazard but eventually they get them all back inside their enclosure. They make a pact never to speak of this again; they wouldn’t want Eddie and Clarrie to worry while on their second honeymoon.
