I’ve been ad avid Archers listener for nearly 30 years but recently said I have Stopped Listening to the Archers until Rob Titchener leaves
To be honest it wasn’t so much the because of the storyline that I stopped listening but more about how excruciating I not only found Rob Titchener, but also the actor who plays him, Timothy Weston.
I can’t explain why I didn’t like Rob Titchener / Timothy Weston right from the start (before Helen and Rob even started happening) it was one of those instant dislike moments which has just wound up like an elastic band as the storyline developed.
I kept to my word and haven’t listened for a month, instead following the other stories in the Archers Community on Google+ – The Archers (Unofficial Listeners’ Group)
Starting listening to the Rob Titchener Helen Archer Storyline in The Archers again
Today I have decided I will start listening again from this Sundays Archers omnibus, not because I particularly want to, but more that I feel I should after listening to the fantastic piece on Radio 4 Woman’s Hour about Coercive Control and Domestic Violence on The Archers
You could say Woman’s Hour has coerced me in to listening to the Archers again.
