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
