Nine characters - one actor

Writer, The Archers

Perhaps inspired by the recent visit to Ambridge of the Duchess of Cornwall, actor and voice artist Harriet Carmichael has written and recorded her own mini Archers episode.

In three minutes, Harriet plays eight familar characters (including a brief appearance from the usually silent Sabrina Thwaite) - and a celebrity listener.

It's a remarkable piece of work, but we can assure our current cast that there are no plans to replace them with impressionists - no matter how talented!

Keri Davies is an Archers (and Ambridge Extra) scriptwriter and web producer.
