Tasters 26th June - 1st July 2011
Events in Ambridge are as colourful as ever this week…
Having turned a shade of green when she discovered her llamas were in the pink, Lynda is in hot pursuit of the offenders. The culprits don’t know what they’re up against - those candyfloss coats are like a red rag to a bull as far as Lynda’s concerned! Meanwhile, over at Keeper’s Cottage, Clarrie is feeling a little off-colour. Still, ‘Mistress of the Paddocks’ should bring the colour back to her cheeks if last week’s Book Club was anything to go by – if that purple prose doesn’t make her blush then nothing will!
Elsewhere, having nailed her colours to the mast, Elizabeth still sees the world in black and white; Kenton argues ‘til he’s blue in the face only to find he’s chasing rainbows; Ruth’s stuck in the grey and David still feels blue. The yellow-bellied Jamie goes green around the gills when events take a black turn on Thursday. Harry is rapidly becoming Zofia’s blue-eyed boy, despite the green-eyed gaze of a jealous Jazzer. Oliver and Caroline approach a red-letter day, but will Caroline get the time off work to celebrate? And in the pink, Phoebe is ready to paint the town red on her birthday, and her parents aren’t far behind... It’s The Archers!
Drop in for Phoebe’s party on Tuesday and don’t miss Rhys and Harry’s big race on Thursday…
Sunday: Pip makes plans
Monday: Lynda’s on the case
Tuesday: Phoebe gets festive
Wednesday: An outing for Oliver
Thursday: Jamie dodges disaster
Friday: Kathy cooperates
In the pink: Lynda’s lovely llamas
Black sheep: Has David superceded Kenton?

We know that Summer is here (in spite of the weather) as we welcome the start of Wimbledon, but have our villagers been in training or with they be plagued with injury?
The Archer slanging match enters a new phase this week as Elizabeth digs in her heels. She’s on top form and we know she has plenty of stamina for family feuds like this. David is at breaking point, but Elizabeth keeps the volleys coming and it looks like she might just hold to love. Ruth attempts to intervene, but the ball is most definitely in Elizabeth’s court. If only Hawk-Eye or Mac-Cam had been there to record what really happened up on that roof, and perhaps an Umpire to make the final call…
Game set and match
Meanwhile, an exhausted Ed calls for a substitution as the strain of work and family life take their toll. Phoebe’s a bit of a wild card and, stuck in no-man’s land, it’s not clear which way she’s going to go. Kate and Hayley are at a tiebreak, but Kate’s a master of the passing shot and she knows how to get the upper hand. Despite Jazzer’s intricate game plan, Harry has a surprise score which puts him back in the game. Could it be game set and match?… It’s The Archers!
Don’t miss Book Club on Wednesday as it’s a really interesting read!
Sunday: Robert reflects
Monday: Shula’s shocked
Tuesday: Emma has an idea
Wednesday: Jennifer faces her demons
Thursday: Harry gets the upper hand
Friday: Ruth lets rip
Deuce: Ed and Oliver even the score, while Hayley and Kate fight for a break
Ace: Harry serves a corker

While Brian reluctantly opens the gates of Home Farm for Open Farm Sunday, he looks forward to closing them again quick sharpish that evening. Still, Adam has convinced him it might help them keep the wolf from the door. Brian also attempts to shut the door on the infamous supermarket deal, but Lilian has stuck out her foot and doggedly prises it open… Who will win in the end? Find out on Wednesday.
Meanwhile, Oliver feels shut out by Ed. Having been left out in the cold by Caroline, Oliver attempts to open the door of communication with his employee, only to have it shut in his face. Talking to Ed is like talking to a brick wall when there are cows to be milked!
Slam that door!
Rather than shut the door, Ruth feels like Elizabeth has slammed it in her face as the quarrel rages on. David and Elizabeth seem to be caught in a revolving door as blame and shame go round, and round, and round… Attempting to minimize the fall-out, Pip tries to close the stable door, but the horse has most definitely bolted! Still, when one door shuts, another one opens, so there may be hope for the Archer family yet. So make a cuppa and open the door to Ambridge… It’s The Archers!
Head to Home Farm on Sunday, and it’s Ruth’s birthday on Thursday.
Sunday: Brian opens up
Monday: Kate carries on
Tuesday: Helen hands over the helm
Wednesday: Harry has high hopes
Thursday: Happy returns for Ruth
Friday: Pip pipes up
An open book: Jazzer & Harry’s motives are clear
Keeping closed: Elizabeth has shut herself off & Hayley says ‘NO’!

While David went to see a man about a dog last week, Oliver gears up for the hunt’s puppy show on Sunday. Unfortunately it looks like Caroline might end up in the doghouse…
Having fought like cat and dog, David and Elizabeth still haven’t made amends. Stubborn as ever, Elizabeth isn’t ready to call off the dogs just yet. David looks forward to some time away from Ambridge, but he hasn’t got a dog’s chance of solving this family rift any time soon. Elizabeth focuses on work and encourages Roy in his falconry initiative; after all, why keep a dog and bark yourself?
Meanwhile, Jazzer looks like a dog’s dinner, but will Zofia be put off by his scruffy appearance? As he and Harry drool over Zofia, we wonder whether it’s a simple case of puppy love. Either that, or Jazzer is being a dog in a manger as he can’t bear the sight of her with Harry, but who’s going to end up top dog?
Elsewhere, Jamie claims the dog ate his revision notes, Roy is as happy as a dog with two tails, Adam’s dog-tired, and Hayley and Kate are heading for a catfight. It’s a dog’s life… It’s The Archers!
The puppy show is on Sunday, and Jazzer and Harry enjoy a night out on Friday…
Sunday: A big day for Oliver
Monday: Phoebe fights her corner
Tuesday: Harry is on the hunt
Wednesday: Jolene gives thanks
Thursday: Jamie lets go
Friday: Brian starts to stress
Hot dog: Harry, Roy
A dog’s dinner: Jazzer, David
