Listeners to the BBC Radio serial The Archers were expecting an eventful anniversary episode tonight. The storyline would “shock Ambridge to the core”. In the final few minutes of the said episode, Nigel Pargetter fell from the roof of Lower Loxley Hall.
According to the editor, Vanessa Whitburn this event is so dramatic “it will still be affecting Ambridge in 10 years’ time.”
In a previous post I described the dilemma over school choice that the Pargetters were experiencing. So, we can now assume the decision over the future education of Lily and Freddie Pargetter is made. They will be far too traumatised to face the imminent entrance exam for the Cathedral School. Will Borchester Green have the honour of educating the Pargetter twins after all?
