Tonight's bulletin follows the very encouraging news that Adam has woken from his coma. He may sound like Brando in The Godfather and, thanks to Ian's attempts at hairdressing, look as though he is auditioning for the lead in Downfall, but this is nonetheless very good news. The official bulletin from Borchester DGH reads:
"Adam Macey woke from his coma at approximately 7.10pm this evening, just in time for the last five minutes of BBC Radio 4's farming documentary which he does like to hear.
"The first indication of this development was the fluttering of eyelids but once his mother had screamed her third "Dahling" at top volume he was bound to come round.
"We immediately ran tests. Here are the details of the questions we asked of him and the answers we received:
Question: Who is the Prime Minister?
Adam's Answer: An interesting constitutional question. I'd rather not answer.
Question: What day of the week is it?
Adam's Answer: Monday if I'm saying this for the first time, but it could be Tuesday
Lunchtime or Sunday morning.
Question: Who are those two people in bed with you?
Adam's Answer: That's my sister Alice and her rather hunky husband Christopher.
"Adam immediately had questions of his own, such as who has been taking care of his poly tunnels, has Ian's soufflé risen and could Kenton please give him a large one. He showed a particular interest in how Iffy was getting on with his bouncers."
There is much to be pleased about but Adam's recovery is in its early days. You can send your good wishes here below or via @TonysConsultant.
