"Shoot the Archers scriptwriters"

I have been an Archers fan since 1972 when a broken leg and a broken TV started me off listening to Radio 4.

Over the years I have come to love the Grundy family, but I can only suppose that the latest generation of scriptwriters are determined to write them out of the programme.

Maybe the story of debt and losing their farm does reflect the sad fate of many of our farmers (brought about by a Government that prefers GM crops to supporting organic farming and the environment), but isn't it about time that their fortunes were reversed and at least they could find a parking place for their caravan, or the council could move them out of Meadow Rise.

The other storylines are better, particularly the Sid-Cathy-Jolene saga. I've been in the Jolene position, although I didn't end up with Sid's equivalent. It's all too true to life, I'm sorry to say, and if it continues that way, the serially-cheating Sid will find yet another amour and Jolene and Cathy will both end up with far better new partners than Sid.
