Episode Summary

Falkland's War
Adrian is both elated and terrified when he learns that Britain is at war with Argentina over the 'ownership' of the Falkland Islands. Argentina has invaded the islands and Britain has gone to war. George Mole, Adrian's father, wishes to go and fight in the conflict and is, therefore, heavily disappointed when he is turned down by the War Office. Adrian follows the progress of the Falkland's situation very carefully and is worried about people getting killed because of the fact that Britain has chosen to use such force. To add to his problems, his mother is acting strangely and people believe that he is a glue sniffer after an accident with a tube of glue! It is clearly not a good time for Adrian as he struggles with his usual amount of dilemmas and tries to cope with being a teenage boy at the same time!moreless

  • Britain is at war with Argentina and Adrian is worried on many levels.

    There are lots of things going on in Adrian's life right now. He is trying to figure out how he feels about the fact that his parents have reunited and, on top of all that, it is announced that Britain is at war with Argentina over the Falkland Islands. Adrian is very worried when his father offers himself in the service of his country and is greatly relieved when his application to join the army is turned down by the War Office.

    The whole situation is a depressing one and Adrian worries greatly about all the conflict and the lives which are being lost. He follows all the news of the conflict very closely and keeps hoping for a resolution.

    As usual, everything else in his life is up and down and, as usual, it doesn't look as if it is going to settle down any time soon. Poor Adrian!

    A pretty good episode to start the second series but difficult to get used to new actors playing the roles of several key characters. Still, I suppose we shall get used to it.moreless
