The Archers

Sunday, 29 May

Brian’s looking on the bleak side of things. He mentions to Stella that the forensic accountant is taking things no further over the farm’s finances, and she exclaims this is fantastic news. She’s puzzled as to why Brian seems so miserable. Brian shares that Neil’s venomous words have been playing on his mind. He bitterly regrets how hard he was on Chris, who he admits was a wonderful husband to Alice and a fantastic dad. If Brian had been in Neil’s shoes he probably would have said the same. Stella feels Brian’s tired, and needs a break away from the farm. She suggests he has time off to unwind when Ruairi returns for the holiday. At the cricket Jazzer admits to Jim he hasn’t told Tracy he’s been sacked. But Jim feels she’d understand; and it’s not as if the two of them are sharing a household. When Tracy pops into the scorebox Jazzer bites the bullet. As predicted Tracy takes a pragmatic approach to the news, but admits it’s not great. Jazzer suggests he moves in, to make up Gary’s lost rent? Tracy’s unsure. They’re interrupted by Roy, and the atmosphere turns icy as Tracy and Jazzer give him a hard time, and he beats a hasty retreat. Jazzer feels this proves his case. They make a formidable team; look how they saw Roy off! Tracy begins to lay down house rules and things get a little raucous as Jim returns wanting to know why the scoreboard isn’t up to date. But Jazzer just thanks Jim for putting the idea in his head.
