The Archers - 03/10/2008


Oliver gives Ed some new overalls for the open day at Grange Farm. He's full of praise for Ed's publicity efforts in the radio interview. Ed says he and Emma can move into Rickyard Cottage next week. It's really tiny and not Emma's style, but it'll do for now. Oliver's pleased that they have at least found somewhere. Peggy's defiant when Oliver suggests life with Jack must be limiting, asserting that she manages very well. But as if to prove her wrong she has a battle with Jack over his new slippers. Jennifer and Lilian arrive on the pretext of coffee and a catch up, but Peggy soon rumbles them. They tell her a carer, Maria, is coming for a chat, and Peggy reacts predictably. Between them Jennifer, Lilian and Maria manage to persuade Peggy that it would be a good idea for Jack and Maria to meet, at least. Jack's charmed by her. Peggy grudgingly notices this but comes up with any amount of reasons for not having Maria. But eventually she agrees to a trial, with the option of calling it off if Jack's not happy. Relieved Lilian assures her it's the right decision. Episode written by Nawal Gadalla.
