And now she's been the latest victim of the Archers Personality Reversal Virus......

What with the bad s.w.'s and the actress who is crap there not much going for her is there?

MrsCampbellBlack Fri 07-Jun-13 17:55:29

Josh and pip is going to be david and Elizabeth all over again!

I managed to bugger up my iTunes whilst moving house and honestly thought I'd missed a couple of episodes when I heard Pip - she's totally changed again.

I loathe the Single Wicket episode - Every. Sodding. Time.

Are they setting her up for some kind of split personality / mental health issue? I can't think of any other explanation!

heronsfly Thu 06-Jun-13 13:59:42

Just caught up with the podcasts, and yes, i agree with songbird, Pip is back to being mummy and daddys golden girl, shame, i was hoping she was up the duff with child grin

Songbird Tue 04-Jun-13 16:00:59

Aaaaaaand, another personality change from Pip!

heronsfly Sun 26-May-13 21:15:39

And that has all fizzled out to nothing yet again.
She was so ungrateful when David made an offer to help, I didnt even think she was going to say thank you,spoilt brat.

Baffled here too. She's done rebelling. Why the regression? If my DD talked to me like that I'd feel I'd failed totally.

SenoritaViva Fri 17-May-13 15:12:22

It is an enjoyable storyline though!

Although I agree, how can you go from being ridiculously focused to not caring at all? I was rubbish at getting in assignments but I was always rubbish!

I don't quite believe the whole josh pursuit of business either at his age. But as I said earlier I'm fundamentally lazy so perhaps that's why I don't get it?

Ambridge Fri 17-May-13 14:45:35

Thing is, she's had her teen strop years, with Juuuuuuuuuuuude (and what agony that was to listen to).

Then she wised up, became sensible and started taking her farming future seriously.

Now, at 20, she's suddenly, bafflingly regressed several years at the flick of a switch. Why??? Do the scriptwriters not realise they've done this storyline already? hmm

DH & I were in stitches (laughing) at Pip's outburst last night.

RocknRollNerd Fri 17-May-13 07:47:31

Ah....the moped comment got me in full on channelling the script writer mode.... Rosa has to sell moped to raise cash to continue living in Ambridge with Darrell-ex-machina, Pip gets it and has horrible accident and David and Ruth blame themselves...

LondonMother Thu 16-May-13 20:30:54

Ruth wasn't the only one who nearly had an affair. David was this close with Sophie Barlow, let's not forget. Six of one, half a dozen of the other in my view, although he did pull back first.

Pip is unutterably vile. There has to be one in every generation. Elizabeth is far too saintly now and Kate is hardly ever back in Ambridge.

Songbird Thu 16-May-13 16:52:27

Or a moped, like Rosa!

yegodsandlittlefishes Thu 16-May-13 15:33:18

David pushed Nigel off the roof? Well, I love him even more now! Love Ruth too, she's great, but too soft on Pip.
I couldn't get into The Archers a few years back, maybe they change the personalities to make it easier for new listeners to tune in and not feel too alienated for not knowing all the characters' every move for decades.

EssieW agree, the answer is a push bike! (But doubt that will be the scripted answer.)

MrsCampbellBlack Thu 16-May-13 14:16:20

Its another Archers abrupt personality change isn't it - they really aren't good at developing characters in a believable way.

Also agree that Ruth is being too soft and that's not in character for her either.

SenoritaViva Thu 16-May-13 13:53:40

I like David too. I'm finding Ruth unbelievably soft over peep. I'd be off my rocker at her behaviour but then DH is the reasonable one. But I've also never had a teenager (technically peep isn't anymore but she's a bit behind)

seeker Thu 16-May-13 13:34:46

I like David too. Even if he did push Nigel off the roof......

JollyGolightly Thu 16-May-13 13:31:27

I like David, I fancy his voice and know for a fact that he looks great in his Hunter wellies and an old Guernsey jumper. I was really annoyed with Rooooth for almost cheating on him a few years ago.

Songbird Thu 16-May-13 13:19:37

I know. He'll dump her and David and Rooooth will get the blame for that too. I love David, I have to say. But then I've only been listening for the past couple of years - no doubt some old lag will come here and say you can't possibly love David because in 1989 he did this and said that grin

SenoritaViva Thu 16-May-13 12:40:45

I loathe pip but loving the storyline. I think partly because David and Ruth are being so reasonable. I know she's miss perfect but she has shown glimmers of not being so before (over Jude). Can't believe spencer would put up with her talking to him like that much, he seems too boring reasonable (outside the village shop raging "we need to leave now").

seeker Thu 16-May-13 07:18:08

I'm actually finding the Pip storyline irritatingly unbelievable. She can't possibly have changed that much in a year or so, surely? It's not as if she's 17.....

yegodsandlittlefishes Thu 16-May-13 07:17:23

I am loving the Pip story as well as my eldest can be an entitled little miss teen and I can just see her turning out like that (Im my nightmares) if she doesn't grow up. (Am sure she will though). At the weekend, DD caught a bit of Josh being sensible and was really interested and impressed, but she just missed the wonderful scene with Pip bemoaning her horrendous lack of car. I wish I could have paused the car radio and played it when I picked her up later!

EssieW Thu 16-May-13 07:11:40

Why can pip not get a bike? She could cycle to train station, presumably to Spencer's farm etc. the fact it must be a car irritates me!
