The Archers: 11/4/2012
Amy's on a high, and will Ed stick his neck out?
Alice helps Amy shop for lingerie. Amy wants her first weekend with Carl to be memorable. Alice observes to a bubbling Amy that she seems to have quite taken leave of her senses. Amy agrees happily.
Pat puts the suggestion of a newspaper article about the dairy to Ed, but he says he can't do it. Because he rents some land from the Estate, Mike told him it was risky to stick his neck out when he spoke up at the public meeting. Ed's still against the mega dairy, but it would only need someone to remember that article when his lease comes up for renewal and it could be a problem. He's got too much to lose. Pat's frustrated but tells him she understands.
When she arrives home, Alice is annoyed to find that Jennifer has let herself in. She's brought a casserole, scuppering Alice's own supper plans for Chris.
Brian's pleased to discover that the chief planning officer is recommending approval for the dairy. But they're still waiting for the Environment Agency report. The consultant Bryn Hamilton tells Brian that the EA still has reservations, mainly about slurry leakage. And there's more box ticking to do. Brian's told Bryn to burn some midnight oil. They've got to tie up the loose ends, fast.
