Episode Summary

EDIT
Tasha's Story
AIRED:
Tasha (Katie Blake) is a textile design student, doing work experience at Mackintosh. She's a posh girl from a leafy suburb and she doesn't fit in. She desperately wants to but she comes from another world. Mack (Philip Glenister) is feeling his age. Living alone in his suburban family house, his dissatisfaction with life is growing. This is not what he wants, surrounded by housewives driving 4 by 4s, spending his weekends at elderly neighbour's barbecues. There's got to be something more. Tasha is thrilled when the girls invite her to the pub. Everyone is drinking up and having a good time, when she offers some coke around. They're not shocked, but it highlights the differences - they don't live the life where people can afford to snort coke. Just another thing that marks her out. Mack comes to the pub to get the keys to his filing cabinet but unusually he ends up staying. Normally, he avoids uncomfortable, social situations with his workers but he definitely has things in common with Tasha - not to mention the spark of attraction there is between them. They end up back at Mack's - snorting the coke and making love in his nice, suburban house, chosen and decorated by his ex-wife Catherine in her desperation to escape her own background. He shares with Tasha how lonely he feels, how trapped by the factory - this wasn't what he expected from life. How he doesn't fit in with his staff or with anyone else for that matter. Tasha's attitude is straightforward - if you've got a problem, then change it. This gets Mack thinking. But Tasha's mission to be one of the girls eventually goes wrong. Putting herself in the middle of one of their lives, she is way out of her depth. Flailing about to make things right, she only makes them a whole lot worse...moreless
