The Archers

Monday, 4 April

Tracy needs some extra housekeeping shifts at Grey Gables, now that a downbeat Jazzer’s hours at Berrow are reduced. But Tracy reports back to Roy that Oliver was abrupt when she approached him – guarded on a phone call, quickly dismissing Tracy. Oliver later emails Tracy to confirm he’s happy with the idea. Roy and Tracy speculate on whether Oliver has a ‘lady friend’. Roy also fishes for info on Tracy’s disciplinary last month, but Tracy deflects. Meanwhile Roy’s delighted to have beaten Kate in their fish challenge - his ‘Kate’ fish is still going strong, unlike the deceased ‘Roy’ fish. On her way to her solicitor, Roisin, Brian sends Alice a contact for a job opportunity – she’ll ring later. Alice tells Roisin about Chris and Amy, but Roisin sets Alice straight – she needs to look after her own mental health. Alice insists she’s tougher than she seems, determined to have full custody of Martha and not let Chris break her. Roisin advises it’s going to be an uphill battle as Alice is marginalised in the current arrangement, and courts prefer to stick to the status quo. Alice tells Roisin about the lecturing job her dad has put her on to, building her earning potential – but to Alice’s shock Roisin proposes Alice doesn’t return to work, and instead becomes a full time stay at home mother. It would strengthen Alice’s case though Chris is likely to contest with everything he has, but Alice agrees – it’s the right thing for Martha.
