Charlotte Martin (Susan Carter)

Well, not exactly. But the actor who plays her does.

When not playing Susan, Charlotte Martin is a research psychologist. Charlotte helped develop the recently launched Youthspace website, designed to help young people with mental health issues.

Keri Davies is an Archers scriptwriter and web producer.

    Mr Davies,

    Why are you using The Guardian as the basis for your blog?


    Could you answer som of the questions asked over the past 6 weeks or so do you think?

    I'm not. There just happen to have been two consecutive stories from The Guardian this week.

    We'll try to link to any interesting Archers-related stories wherever they appear. For example, in this post about coverage of the 60th anniversary, as well as The Guardian I linked to the Mail, the Express and several stories in the Telegraph:


    >Could you answer som of the questions asked over the past 6 weeks or so do you think?

    I have to say I've seen rather more opinions, accusations and assertions rather than actual questions. That's fine, but they are harder to 'answer'. We certainly note them all, even if we find ourselves in disagreement with some of them.

    Dear Mr Davies,

    Thank you for your response.

    I see you note them all, even if you find yourselves in disagreement with some of them.

    Could I ask just one? when did the direction of the whole programme shift? From as wiki says :-

    It was originally billed as "an everyday story of country folk", but is now described on its Radio 4 web site as "contemporary drama in a rural setting"

    Was it from this rebranding?

    You know what you have done for a great many of us? Having chosen a very acceptable brand of chocolate and been feeding the habit over the years suddenly to find that it has been debased and ruined (the run up to "that" episode). Further that revelation has given retrospectve illumination and realisation that it has been going "off" for some time.. Years

    Conned & betrayed. Brand destruction. Reminds me of Perrier. Never seen again

    Why does the Guardian article refer to her as Charlotte Connor but here and in all Archers material she is Charlotte Martin? Stage name? Thanks.

    I'll ask a question then, 'When is Vanessa Whitburn going to stand down?'
