    White Teeth (2)
    Episode 23
    1992. Millat (Christopher Simpson) is now a juvenile delinquent attending a progressive school with Archie's beautiful daughter, Irie (Sarah Ozeke). Busted for dope along with nerd Josh Malfen (James McAvoy), the three are sentenced to study sessions with Josh's intellectual parents, Marcus (Robert Bathurst), a controversial geneticist, and Joyce (Geraldine James), a famous gardener. When Samad torches Millat's possessions in a bonfire of teenage vanities, Millat moves in with the Malfens. But he is lured away by the Keepers of the Eternal and Victorious Islamic Nation (KEVIN) -- an Islamic sect with an acronym problem. Josh also turns radical, joining Fighting Animal Torture and Exploitation (FATE) -- an animal rights group targeting his father for crimes against mice. To Samad's horror, when long-absent Magid (also Christopher Simpson) finally returns from Bangladesh, he is more English than the English. Magid immediately goes to work for Marcus on FutureMouse, a transgenic Franken-species. Irie is also working on the project as Marcus's sexually harassed secretary.

    At the public launch for FutureMouse, fate brings the protagonists together: the Joneses, the Iqbals, the Malfens, the mouse, KEVIN, FATE, and a surprise guest from the most traumatic day of Archie and Samad's war service.

    EXXONMOBIL MASTERPIECE THEATRE presents "White Teeth" by Zadie Smith. Shown: Sarah Ozeke as Irie and Christopher Simpson as Millat.
