Episode Summary

EDIT
Steve's Story
AIRED:
Steve Robinson, factory foreman and Mack's right-hand man, is trying to save his marriage. His wife Sylvia suspects he has had a fling, although Steve is admitting nothing. Steve has, in fact, been unfaithful once (with Mack's wife) but feels terrible about it. On the night of their wedding anniversary, he woos Sylvia back with a home-cooked meal and champagne. They manage to clear the slate and make up. All seems well, but as they drift off to sleep, they are rudely awakened by an armed burglar. Steve fights the intruder, but this is only the start of their nightmare. When the police call round to investigate the assault, they find they are being victimised again - this time by the police, who are more interested in the remains of a spliff in their ashtray than in Steve and Sylvia's account of the break-in. Deciding to search the house, the police uncover a bundle of Ecstasy tabs in Steve and Sylvia's son Robbo's (Jason Sampson) bedroom. The discovery deepens the severity of the police accusations. Meanwhile Steve and Sylvia have suffered a shock; they thought they knew their own son. Having lost faith in the police, Steve and his mates decide to take the law into their own hands. Steve suspects his family is the target of a hate campaign waged by someone he sacked from the factory the previous year. Steve follows his suspicions to the house of dismissed employee, Kim Ronstadt (Lee Warburton). When he gets there, he realises from Ronstadt's reaction that he has found the culprit. When Sylvia correctly identifies Ronstadt in a police line-up, Ronstadt's gang retaliate by hurling bricks through the Robinson's windows and stealing Steve's car. And, just when it seems things can't get any worse, Steve gets a suspended sentence and £500 fine for being in possession of drugs.moreless
