Summaries

  • Despite having their second child, Mary and Tosker's marriage continues to fall apart, as their Willow Lane flat becomes riddled with damp and insanitary. Geordie has become a close confidante of Benny Barratt's, enabling him to live a very comfortable existence, although he has been pursuing an affair with Julia. Barratt quickly discovers the affair, but remains silent about it. Nicky, completely disillusioned with the Labour Party, has begun to turn to the anarchist movement and is in a relationship with a radical, middle-class anarchist. The pair have a disastrous dinner with Mary and Tosker, who find they now have nothing in common with Nicky's attitudes or politics, and view his girlfriend as being condescending. Eddie Wells discovers that Nicky has documents that prove that Donohue and Edwards acted illegally, he asks him to make them public, but Nicky refuses and instead leaves immediately to go to London. Edwards has abandoned Donohue and is instead expanding his affairs overseas, with the help of corrupt Conservative MP Claude Seabrook. Tosker loses his job at a factory when the company have to halt their illegal exports to Rhodesia at a time when the UK were pursuing sanctions against the country. Depressed, he travels to London to visit Geordie, who takes him out in Soho and introduces him to Barratt. The porn baron takes a shine to Tosker, giving him gifts of money and ensuring he is well-entertained. Shortly after this, Barratt asks Geordie if he is having an affair with Julia, and rather than lie Geordie confesses. Barratt states that for being honest with him, he will continue to work with Geordie, but takes him to see Julia having sex with a man for money to show that she was lying to him about being in love with him. This scene leaves Geordie completely devastated.
