CUT TO:

6 INT/EXT. MINI/SCAMMONDEN ROAD. EVENING 7. 17.20 6

Just then TOMMY sails past in ANN’s Mini and sees what’s

happening:
LEWIS has been pulled over by the police.

Instantly he’s on red alert and we can see his brain ticking:

dumb arse LEWIS is going to fuck this up.

CUT TO:

7 INT. KIRSTEN’S CAR. EVENING 7. 17.21 7

KIRSTEN:

Bravo November nine-five-one-two.

(”nearly with you ninefive-

one-two”. KIRSTEN

tuts and groans/murmurs -

)

Forget it.

She grabs her torch and gets out of her patrol car.

CUT TO:

8 INT/EXT. VAN/SCAMMONDEN ROAD. EVENING 7. 17.22 8

LEWIS watches nervously as KIRSTEN leaves her vehicle and

walks towards him in the white van. Slowly. LEWIS sits where

he is in the driver’s seat, nervously determining to play it

as casually as he can. KIRSTEN goes to the passenger side

window and indicates to LEWIS to wind it down. He does.

KIRSTEN smiles.

LEWIS:

Evening.

KIRSTEN:

Is this your van?

LEWIS:

(no, it’s ASHLEY’s)

Yeah.

KIRSTEN:

You were going at quite a lick

there.

HAPPY VALLEY. EPISODE THREE. BY SALLY WAINWRIGHT 5.

LEWIS:

Yeah. Sorry. I’m - I’ve had a long

day, I just wanna get home. To

t’girlfriend.

KIRSTEN:

Sure. What you done to your eye?

LEWIS:

Oh. I had a fight. With me brother.

KIRSTEN:

Can I see your docs?

LEWIS:

I don’t - I haven’t - I’ve not got

anything on me.

KIRSTEN:

Do you know where they are?

LEWIS:

In t’drawer. At home.

KIRSTEN:

What’s your name?

Conscious of ANN not wanting to hear, he’s compelled to lower

his voice. Just a jot.

LEWIS:

Lewis. Whippey.

KIRSTEN:

You’ve got a light out, Lewis. At

the back. Did you know?

LEWIS:

No.

KIRSTEN:

Driver’s side. Come and have a

look.
