Happy Valley script
Happy Valley  Season #1 Episode #3 (2014)
Synopsis: Happy Valley is a British crime drama television series filmed and set in the Calder Valley, West Yorkshire in Northern England. The series, starring Sarah Lancashire and Siobhan Finneran, is written and created by Sally Wainwright, and directed by Wainwright, Euros Lyn, and Tim Fywell. The first series debuted on BBC One on 29 April 2014, and the second series debuted on 9 February 2016. Wainwright has said that she would like to write a third series, but is busy with other commitments for the time being. Sarah Lancashire has said that she would not return for a third series, but a spokesman for the show later reported that after discussions with Wainwright, Lancashire was "very keen" on a third series.

She indicates that she wants him to get out of the van.

LEWIS:

No I’ll - I’ll take your word for

it, I’ll get it seen to.

KIRSTEN:

I just want you to come and look at

how dangerous it is. Particularly

on your off-side. D’you mind?

HAPPY VALLEY. EPISODE THREE. BY SALLY WAINWRIGHT 5A.

LEWIS hesitates. KIRSTEN gently persists. LEWIS decides to do

as he’s told.

CUT TO:

HAPPY VALLEY. EPISODE THREE. BY SALLY WAINWRIGHT 6.

9 INT/EXT. MINI/SCAMMONDEN ROAD. EVENING 7. 17.23 9

In his rear-view mirror, TOMMY sees LEWIS getting out of the

van. This is bad. He thinks things through, then efficiently,

calmly, turns the Mini around in the road.

CUT TO:

10 EXT. SCAMMONDEN ROAD. EVENING 7. 17.24 10

KIRSTEN walks to the back of the van. LEWIS walks to the back

of the van.

KIRSTEN:

See?

LEWIS nods, manages to murmur ”Yup”. KIRSTEN looks at him.

KIRSTEN (CONT’D)

Are you all right?

LEWIS:

I fink...

(he’s aware he’s probably

shaking with nerves)

I might be going down with

something. Like ‘flu.

KIRSTEN:

Okay. Well. You drive safely, okay?

And

(nods at the light)

Get that seen to. Yeah? Soon.

Otherwise you’re gonna be causing

an accident, and you just don’t

need that sort of hassle, do you?

LEWIS:

No. Yeah. Fanks. Sorry.

Just then TOMMY pulls in behind them in the Mini. KIRSTEN

thinks nothing of it; she probably makes the subconscious

decision that whoever drives that sort of car isn’t going to

pose any kind of threat. Just then there’s a bump from inside

the van, and the van moves. (It’s ANN, obviously, trying to

draw attention to herself. There may even be a muffled/gagged

cry for help).

KIRSTEN:

(a smile)

What you got in there? An elephant?

LEWIS:

No. Just. My dog.

KIRSTEN’s curious. Why would a dog start making a fuss now

rather than earlier?
