    Hi @Hels - Matt was adopted as a baby and only relatively recently found his mother (who has since died) and at the same time found that he had a half brother, Paul. Lilian got to know Paul when Matt was in prison for fraud.

    Hels is right. Paul does sound a lot less well spoken since he turned out to be a possessive liar. As a great fan of Matt's (a much more interesting character than most of the other Ambridge residents in my opinion), I hope he wreaks a suitably interesting revenge on his slimy half brother.

    Hang on just a cotton pickin' minute ... How do you all know Paul is Matt's half brother? Must admit - I'm a relatively new listener - but honestly, how did I miss that?

    Has anyone else noticed how dramatically Paul's accent has changed. When he first appeared on the scene he was quite well spoken. We are now hearing rather a lot of "glottal stops". Has someone else taken over the part?

    Paul thinks he is losing Lillian and turns up at the Dower House unexpectantly and Matt is there. Paul is desperate and a little out of touch with reality and thinks if he confronts Matt with the truth Lillian will leave Matt to be with him.

    It quickly turns into a stand-off between Matt and Paul and Pusscat is left to lick her wounds. Tiger sees Pusscat as a victim with Paul wanting to hurt Matt. Matt, of course, makes it all about himself and that Pusscake has simply been manipulated by the evil Paul. Matt is planning something very nasty for Paul and he has Pusscat back where he wants her - feeling guilty and a little pathetic.

    Its such a complicated situation and there are no clear villians or saints. Lillian began the affair because she was fed up with Matt's dishonest dealings. Now she's beginning to discover Paul is just as dishonest in a different way. I fear she may end up with no-one. If she discovers Matts revenge then it will probably just drive another wedge between her and Matt. She is so close to ending it with Paul though that I hope she does without any further complications.
    ...And there is always the possibility that Matt could realise what he could lose in Lillian which could be the making of him.
    Still... life... and the Archers, is often more complicated than the happy ending I might hope for

    I love Lilian! Matt's no saint, they're perfect for each other. This affair will show them how much they have to lose.
    Paul is a complete nutter (there's been a massive volte face from the caring kind Paul who came to the hospital I have to say.....).
    I have been completely captivated by this storyline. It's been as good as the Brian/Siobhan affair.
    (Does this make me prurient and shallow I wonder?!)
