First Broadcast – 4 February 2001
Brian’s romantic interest, Beverley.
It’s ‘Singles Night’ at the Phoenix club, and the club’s house band, Les Alanos, and doormen Max and Paddy are all looking. Brian is the most successful, though, when he accidentally runs over a woman’s foot before buying her a drink and talking the night away. Throughout the episode, their relationship progresses, until she (Beverley) reveals to Brian that she works for the DSS and was sent to investigate him for fraudulent disability claims. Despite Beverley’s assertions that her feelings for him are genuine, Brian finishes with her. Elsewhere, Paddy strikes up a relationship with Holy Mary’s daughter Mary.
