Official description of episode:
Simon Gaskell (Sean Bean) is a college English teacher who specialises in poetry and has a secret. His alter ego is a transvestite called Tracie Tremarco, who is gay, lonely and looking for love. But trawling Manchester’s bars dressed up to the nines has not produced a lasting or truly fulfilling relationship.
Then as fate would have it Tracie falls head over heels in love in unexpected circumstances, following an altercation with some blokes out on a stag night. One of the stag revellers, Tony (Stephen Graham) a satellite and aerial engineer, comes to Tracie’s aid and offers her a lift home.
Tony and Tracie are smitten and hesitatingly their love affair begins. But Tony has a secret too - he’s married to a local beautician, Karen (Rachel Leskovac), and he cares deeply for his wife. Before long Tracie becomes entangled in a triangular love affair that leads inexorably to a terrible crime of passion.
Simon Gaskall/Tracie Tremarco is played by Sean Bean, Tony is played by Stephen Graham and Karen is played by Rachel Leskovac.
