Ashley is missing a trick on Monday, when he has to hand over the church keys and worries about where he can stay. The cricket pavilion! It is always open and, give or take the odd couple romping there, it’s always empty.
On Tuesday, the former vicar is robbed of his few possessions, and on Thursday, when Rodney learns that he has been sleeping rough he sets off to find him. He discovers Ashley having a rummage in a bin. It’s been a long, unending decline for Ashley. Can it get any worse? Of course, it can.
Cameron and Chas’s plans are thrown into disarray on Thursday, when Debbie collapses, and on Friday Cameron expresses doubts about leaving. Alicia, meanwhile, marries David, despite having learned on Thursday that Justin will not be fighting for custody of Jacob. Any red-blooded girl would do the same.
