Synopsis by Brian J. Dillard

In this episode of This Life, Milly (Amita Dhiri) becomes sexually infatuated with her boss, O'Donnell (David Mallinson), after he punches out a creep who hassles her on the street. When she admits her attraction after a tipsy client dinner, he rejects her out of a sense of professional propriety. Meanwhile, Anna (Daniela Nardini) engages in her own May-December romance -- with Egg's father, Jerry (Paul Copley), who is still staying at the house. Egg (Andrew Lincoln) gets sick of Jerry's presence, especially when Jerry lands an interview with a literary agent. Still unemployed and struggling with his writing, Egg visits Warren's therapist (Gillian McCutcheon) in hopes of sorting out his problems. Meanwhile, Miles (Jack Davenport) defends a flasher who plies his trade on Anna, and Warren (Jason Hughes) comes to grips with Dale's rejection. Season one, episode ten of the cult-favorite British soap This Life: Father Figure first aired on BBC 2 on May 20, 1996.
