The Archers - 13/11/2008

Mike and Eddie can't agree on which end of the cow they should be - Mike says he's been studying the cows mooing, so he should definitely be the speaking end. Eddie thinks they should practice, which Kenton wholeheartedly encourages and they head upstairs at the Bull. They begin with a song, and get into their cow positions - Mike at the front, Eddie the rear, and try walking, with limited success. Their singing impresses Kenton hugely, but his Dame Trot lines fall on unenthusiastic ears. Jennifer and Lilian are preparing Peggy's birthday tea. Jennifer's convinced something's not right at the Lodge - Peggy seems to be managing too well. They quiz Adam about it. He says they need to talk to Peggy. Later, Jack tells Lilian that Peggy should have the first slice of birthday cake - it'll make her happy, and she isn't. Peggy begins to cry. She can't go on pretending she can cope. Jennifer appears cheerily with the cake, finding Peggy distraught. Peggy eventually goes to sleep, exhausted. Adam admits that he and Ian have been helping Peggy. Sending Jack away hit Peggy hard - she doesn't trust them. Lilian insists from now on they must listen to Peggy, and Jennifer agrees, whatever the consequences. Episode written by Mary Cutler.
