2 EXT. LEEDS - DUSK 2

Blue blue skies. Fluffy white clouds drift... Down through

the clouds to the dusk over the doleful city. The red sun

sinks. Darkness draws in.

RED RIDING:

NINETEEN SEVENTY FOUR

3 EXT. DAWSON CONSTRUCTION SITE, DEVIL’S DITCH - NIGHT 3

A silent, frozen night. We are drawn as in a nightmare - down

a lane signposted to: DEVIL’S DITCH... Past half-built houses

and dormant earth moving vehicles. Everything iced over... A

white feather flutters on the ground... Down into the

building site...

To the black trough of the foundations. We glimpse: in the

very bottom amongst the rusting rods embedded in concrete -

the lovely head, shoulders and wing of A DEAD ANGEL.

WAKEFIELD:

The Year of Our Lord 1974

The image scratches. The colour bleeds.

5 INT/EXT. VIVA / M1 MOTORWAY - DAY 5

Rain sluices across the windscreen. Sparks on the radio:

“This town ain’t big enough for the both of us...”

A stuffed holdall on the back seat. A black jacket sways from

a hook. 5 inch lapels. An old wrist watch on the dash. Fag

smoked down to the tip - used to light a fresh one.

EDDIE DUNFORD - youthful, ambitious, libidinous. Elongated

shirt collar and kipper tie. Booming down the M1. Headed

North. Singing along.

He checks the time.

EDDIE:

Fuck.

Fucked and he’s only just started. He drives like a demon.

6 INT. CONFERENCE ROOM, WAKEFIELD POLICE STATION - DAY 6

Eddie, late and sweating. Editor, BILL HADLEY, grey beard,

grey eyes, is talking to an owlish, bespectacled man -

DETECTIVE SUPERINTENDENT MAURICE JOBSON. Hadley looks

pointedly at his watch.
