Synopsis by Brian J. Dillard

In this episode of This Life, Miles (Jack Davenport) learns that his father, Montgomery (Michael Elwyn), may know something about the Sharingham case. He reluctantly agrees to meet with him to discuss the case -- and their troubled relationship. Miles also apologizes to Warren (Jason Hughes) for lashing out at him; the two arrange for Delilah (Charlotte Bicknell) to have an HIV test because it's too early for Miles to go. Anna (Daniela Nardini) attends a party full of lawyers, drinks too much, and allows a lesbian barrister (Clare Clifford) to flirt with her. Milly (Amita Dhiri) represents a man (Christopher Bramwell) who believes that if he's generous to his wife (Maria McErlane) in their divorce settlement, maybe she'll come back to him. Egg (Andrew Lincoln) tries to buckle down at work and even goes to see Warren's therapist (Gillian McCutcheon) for advice. Eventually, he decides it's time to quit -- and become a football writer. Season one, episode five of the cult-favorite British soap, This Life: Fantasy Football first aired on BBC 2 on April 15, 1996.
