The Archers

Wednesday, 8 December

Susan hopes to persuade Lynda to drop the horses from The Mysteries entirely. What if the cast are upstaged by an incontinent animal? Lynda dismisses this. She plans to make use of Lily’s horse-riding skills. Natasha bursts into the shop with an accusation. Susan’s always complaining about having to sign for Summer Orchard deliveries – she must be the one who tipped Hazel off! Susan protests her innocence, but Natasha is too upset about losing her home to listen. Afterwards, Lynda tries to reassure Susan that this is all Hazel’s fault. But Susan wonders how she’ll ever look the Bridge Farm Archers in the eye again after Natasha embarrassed her like that. What about her job? Lynda’s convinced Natasha will soon apologise for the false accusation. Eddie and Ed are shocked when Hazel arrives at Grange Farm, intending to buy a turkey for Bridge Farm’s Christmas. She hopes to smooth over the upset she’s caused there. They take the opportunity for a bit of revenge, insisting that baffled Hazel chooses her own turkey. Then Eddie offers her the chance to kill it herself. Eventually he puts her out of her misery, reminding her that she evicted the Grundys after the flood. Eddie’s delighted to have had some fun at Hazel’s expense – plus they’ll be paid twice for the Bridge Farm turkey! When Ed feels a tiny bit sorry for Hazel, Eddie points out that she’s done over half the village. Joe would have been proud of them today.
