The Archers

Sunday, 6 February

Phoebe finally manages to tell her mum about her new job and clear up any misunderstanding about her friend Salil. Kate admits she’s disappointed there’s no romantic involvement, but Phoebe’s keen to elaborate on the job. She starts to explain her role as Director of Business development for an eco start-up, but as her mum continues to talk relationships Phoebe gives up – Kate makes it too hard for her to tell her anything. Kate apologises and whilst thrilled about the job, confesses she’s sad Phoebe’s leaving. Phoebe assures her she’ll visit, but she needs a change. Kate accepts this and is mollified when Phoebe says she’d love her mum to visit Scotland. Chris rings Alice for an update on Martha. He still sounds rough, and Alice reassures him. As soon as he’s well Martha will be back with him. Alice confesses to Amy and Fallon she finally feels like a proper mum, and the best person to be looking after her daughter, apart from Chris. She admits she doesn’t know how to help him. She asks Fallon about Harrison’s wish to be baptised. Amy thinks it might be a good thing, but Fallon doesn’t get it and worries he might want to become a vicar. Alice makes her realise how ridiculous that sounds. Later Amy and Fallon visit Chris, who’s short with them. He apologises, but when Amy tries to show him some video of Martha, he doesn’t want to see, and suggests they leave. Fallon can’t believe how rude and cold Chris is being.
