The Archers

Monday, 18 April

Freddie covers when Roy asks him about how he worked out that the Borsetshire Bunny was Kathy. Roy complains how full on Vince is being with the preparations for a surprise birthday party for Elizabeth at Grey Gables. Then Freddie informs Roy of Ruairi’s party – neighbour Roy is going to need his earplugs. As Ruairi unpacks alcohol for his party at Willow Cottage, Ben questions his arrangement with Julianne. Ruairi is defensive and rude in his replies. With the party in full swing Ben tries to persuade Ruairi to slow down on the drinking but he won’t listen. When Roy bangs on the front door complaining about the loud music, Ben answers and apologises. Ruairi joins them and invites Roy in, but when he learns Roy wants the music turned down he slams the door closed. Freddie is enthralled by Ruairi’s tales of clubbing in London. Ruairi reckons Freddie will soon be DJ-ing in top venues with money on its way from Vince. Freddie clarifies the cash isn’t definite. When Ben suggests that Ruairi explains who pays for his nights out in London, they descend into a drunken fight. Freddie tries to break them up and then Alice arrives, having been called by Roy. She puts Ruairi to bed and asks Ben to end the party. Alice remains calm in the face of Ruairi’s drunken insults. When she returns downstairs she asks Ben what’s going on with Ruairi; she’s noticed he’s different. Ben doesn’t let on what he knows and puts it all down to too much alcohol.
