The Archers - 01/02/2008

The children excitedly get ready to visit Ruth. It's a good job David's got Heather to help him. While the children are pre-occupied watching an ambulance, David grabs a quiet moment with Ruth. David's anxious that she's looking after herself. Brian's spoken to his accountant again and wants to update Jennifer. Learning that he's thinking of altering his will, she realises where this is going. The arrangements for Kate and Alice will remain unchanged but Brian wants the farm to continue down the line - not just to Adam and Debbie, he now wants to include Ruairi. It's too much for Jennifer. She can't believe Brian would do this - especially to Adam who she points out took over the reins completely while Brian dealt with the death of his mistress. After all she's done for him, she believes he owes her, and this is just too much. She didn't expect him to treat Ruairi any differently from Kate or Alice but she's adamant that this isn't fair to Debbie, Adam or herself. How can he expect Adam and Debbie to run a farm they won't even inherit? If Brian's intent on creating this mess then she hopes he's ready to live with the consequences. Episode written by Mike Barrington.
