Synopsis by Brian J. Dillard
In this episode of This Life, Egg (Andrew Lincoln) becomes emotionally involved in the case of a man named McCleary (Simon Kunz) who believes his cancer is the result of drugs he was given as a child. At Anna's urging, Miles (Jack Davenport) agrees to take on the Sharingham case -- a high-profile trial involving alleged securities fraud. Much to the consternation of Warren (Jason Hughes), Kira (Luisa Bradshaw-White) gets a temp assignment at Moore, Spencer, Wright. Delilah (Charlotte Bicknell) annoys Anna (Daniela Nardini), pretends to be a model/writer, rummages through people's rooms when they aren't home, and engages in bulimic eating binges; when Warren offers a sympathetic ear, she suckers him into loaning her money to get to a non-existent Continental modeling gig, then spends the money on drugs with Truelove (Keith-Lee Castle). Miles, however, refuses to see what Delilah is up to -- even after the house is mysteriously burgled. Season one, episode three of the cult-favorite British soap, This Life: Living Dangerously first aired on BBC 2 on April 1, 1996.
