Sirens (2011) - Season 1 - Episode 2

Stuart, Rachid and Ashley find their male pride rattled by the lads from the local fire brigade. As the team make a drop-off in A&E, Stuart observes the waiting room is awash with the dregs of humanity and proclaims he's proud that he is 'biologically incapable of adding to its vile and dirty ranks'. Yes, he's firing blanks. When Ashley and Rachid tease him that he's not getting any anyway, he drops a bombshell; he has a date - with Angie, played by Charlene McKenna, a student and eco-campaigner he met a few weeks back. As soon as he's alone, Stuart digs out her number and quickly arranges the date. After a shaky start, things are going well with Angie, but Stuart seems to be behaving in a macho way that neither he nor his friends recognise. Is it Angie's mystique that's having this effect on him, or is it something more powerful than that?
