The BBC has announced that an unpredictable outbreak of murder, suicide, accidental death, lethal machinery malfunction, alien abduction and Ebola will hit Ambridge, leading to a veritable genocide of characters from The Archers.

At least one Ambridge resident a week will be dying in order to protect listening figures and safeguard jobs at BBC Birmingham.
