The Archers: 16/3/2012
Helen asks a big favour and Christine is feeling wary.
Christine and Jill bump into Jim. He compliments Christine on her most alluring perfume. It puts her in a flap. She tells Jill that, much as she likes Jim, that’s as far as it goes. He’s never complimented her like that before, and she’s worried that he’s started getting other ideas.
Tom’s anxious to know if Helen’s heard back from Kylie. When Kylie finally rings back, Helen tells her about Tony’s heart attack and how she and Tom now realise how intensely he feels about Rich. Helen asks Kylie to speak to Sharon to see if Helen could go and see her to explain how they all feel, and to try to persuade her to let Rich know about his other family.
Helen tells Tom that Kylie realised at Ivy’s funeral that she’d missed out on her grandma, so she was sympathetic. She also knows that Rich is interested in knowing more about his real dad, so she’s going to wait for the right moment and speak to Sharon for them. Tom’s delighted but they both know it’s out of their hands. They can’t do any more. It’s now up to Kylie.
