From Darkness  Season #1 Episode #4 (2015)
Synopsis: From Darkness is a British psychological crime drama that premiered on BBC One on October 4, 2015. The series stars Anne-Marie Duff as former police officer Claire Church. A total of four episodes were broadcast. The series was both critically and commercially panned, leading to the likeliness of a second season materializing being very slim. A DVD of the complete series was released on November 9, 2015. Internationally, the series premiered in Australia on November 1, 2015, on BBC First.

6 EXT. COTTAGE, FIELDS. WESTERN ISLES - DAY 1 (08:37) 6

Near the cottage, sheep swarm and scatter, frightened as

NORRIE works CARRICK the sheep dog to herd them up a metal

ramp into a transportation van. It is a loud, noisy and

startling process.

CLAIRE mans the sheep as they clatter up the ramp.

CLAIRE:

Woah there..! Give them a chance!

She waves to slow him down, feeling that he’s pressuring

them too much. NORRIE gives her something of a hangman's

grin as he closes up the transporter. The sheep have no

chance. They are being taken for slaughter.

FROM DARKNESS EPISODE ONE

BEAT. The last sheep in, he shuts the rear of the van and

heads towards the driver's seat.

NORRIE:

Coming?

CLAIRE shakes her head. NORRIE half smiles and climbs in,

slightly gruffly shouting at CARRICK to stay. CLAIRE heads

up to the driver's window and watches NORRIE prepping to

go.

CLAIRE:

You know, I'm tougher than you

think.

NORRIE looks at her, leans out the window and kisses her,

then starts the engine. CLAIRE steps back, smiling but as he

heads off she looks to the van: the captive animals' noses

and eyes peering through the air vents as they are driven off

to slaughter. CLAIRE turns and looks to the now empty

windswept field:
all life gone, the silence suddenly

deafening. She turns and sees CARRICK pining at the open

gate. She whistles to him, and as he trots up to her, rests

her hand on the old dog’s head.

7 EXT. RED-LIGHT DISTRICT, BUILDING SITE - DAY 1 (18:05) 7

The crash of the waves becomes the roar of the engine and

screech of metal as a bulldozer digs out the foundations for

a new building. Claggy, gritty earth pours out from a bucket,

before the blades plunge down into the ground again.
