Synopsis by Brian J. Dillard
In this episode of This Life, Miles (Jack Davenport) goes on blind dates with two of the respondents to his Time Out personal ad, but neither assignation turns out the way he expected. Warren gets the chance to work on an exciting case, but office politics get in the way, setting the stage for a disagreement between him and Milly (Amita Dhiri). Milly overreacts when she sees Rachel (Natasha Little) leaving an early-morning meeting with O'Donnell (David Mallinson), furthering her dislike of the pert trainee. Kira (Luisa Bradshaw-White) continues her dogged pursuit of Jo (Steve John Shepherd), finally prancing into his office and making a date. Egg (Andrew Lincoln) begins his new job at the café and meets its stern owner, Mrs. Cochrane (Steph Bramwell). The slovenly Ferdy (Ramon Tikaram) starts to get on Warren's nerves and continues to annoy Miles. Anna (Daniela Nardini) conspires with Milly and Egg to play a practical joke on Miles by phoning in a fake response to his ad. Finally, Warren gets arrested while cruising for men in the park, and Milly has to come bail him out of jail. Series two, episode four of the cult-favorite British soap This Life: How to Get in Bed by Advertising first aired on BBC 2 on April 7, 1997.
