The Archers

Monday, 14 March

Roy takes Kate the goldfish to the vet’s but Alistair’s out. Roy requests client confidentiality but impatient Jakob just wants to get on with it. He confirms Kate looks fine, but Roy’s worried and wants Jakob to take a closer look. Jakob vouches for the physical condition of the fish, but suggests she may be neglected – she may need clean water and a bigger tank. The penny drops with Roy that this is what they’ve done for Kate’s fish, Roy. The real Roy demands to know what type of tank has been chosen for Roy the fish. Mischievous Jakob points to the most expensive one online, and resigned Roy decides to buy it. It will be worth it to keep Kate the fish alive and win his bet with the real Kate. Chris and Alice discuss their possessions split with their mediator Nora. Chris is relieved they no longer have to cite any wrongdoing. Nora notes their conciliatory attitudes over the care of Martha, commenting they seem to have found an agreeable pattern. Chris agrees, and then announces the bigger decisions concerning Martha should be down to him as the main parent. Alice is initially quiet, before suggesting she should now have Martha more. Chris argues that Alice may not always be reliable. Alice calmly counters that Chris shouldn’t be telling her when she’s able to parent. Nora gently pushes the conversation on. Alice feels Martha’s the priority and finally declares her home should be with Alice, at The Nest. She wants to be Martha’s primary carer.
