ARCHERS UP­DATE

The Widow Par­get­ter, bereft of her chil­dren, paces Lower Lox­ley Hall, un­able to see more shad­ows gath­er­ing in its cursed cor­ri­dors.

It falls to Bert the Bard to point out that fur­ther trou­ble is head­ing her way. Dis­as­ter’s also com­ing to Shula, and many of us are nowhere near as sorry as we should be about that.

By the way, if you see Brian hang­ing around

The Bull, give him a wide berth as, what with one thing and an­other, he could turn into a round-dodger. Of course, as ever at this time of year, avoid Lynda, or you will end up in her Christ­mas show, and steer clear of Jazzer, as he’s cranky from nico­tine with­drawal – though wan­ton Han­nah has a plan for his crav­ings.
