Radio Times: Daniel creates a drama.Characters: Brian, Clarrie, Debbie, Jill, Neil, Phil, Susan
- Neil and Susan are a little nervous about their finances, especially given Neil’s lack of casual work from Home Farm. Fortunately Debbie has had a word with Brian about their lack of co-ordination and has got a promise from him to liase more closely in future. She plans to offer Neil some work in the lambing sheds – it’s not much, but she hopes it might placate him. Susan, of course, just points at the mistake as another way that Brian has let them down.
- Clarrie’s washing machine is still unfixed and she borrows Susan’s to do some spinning of her wet washing. She uses the opportunity to have a well-deserved (and rare) moan at her situation – especially at the recently received electricity and telephone bills and the cost of teenage sons!
- The whole village seems to have enjoyed the panto, although Phil’s not sure whether the shambling production will escape some Snellish vitriol when she writes her review for the Echo. Elsewhere, Baggy and Snatch’s hilarious Pantomime Cow (in a horse’s costume) seems to have surprised many people with its lack of crudeness!
- Phil and Jill are still appreciating having Daniel to stay, but he’s playing up a little, using his illness to excuse some late night crying and whinging. Jill’s expecting Shula to phone but doesn’t plan on worrying her with this news, but will take him to the doctor in the morning, just in case it’s not a ruse.
