Tasha is one part girl and two parts rabbit in the headlights. She floats through the days with
a similar expression to the one that adorned Bambi's mush after somebody pumped his mother full of lead. So why so sad?
by survivalists who dropped out of society to live in a fortress preparing for Y2K (as one does), Tasha was taught to distrust
everything. But when her "parents" died in an enormous fire, Tasha became traumatised and began to let her instincts rule:
running through the bush in her birthday suit is a regular pastime of hers.
Irene was the only one who managed to
quench Tasha's fiery temper and draw her out of her shell. Hang on, though; why the inverted commas around the word "parents"?
Well, it's turned out that Tasha's real mother is none other than Angie Russell - and regular viewers will recall that she
met a fate similar to Old Mother Bambi. They say that the apple never falls far from the tree, and we're looking forward to
Tasha proving the proverb right. But will she let us down by being sweetness and light?
