Ann. Gallagher.

MIKE TAYLOR:

And who’s done this to my sergeant?

ANN:

I don’t know his name, but he’s

(he nods - through the

front door. They pile in,

no questions asked)

Check the cellar first! And be

careful!

(he gets on his radio)

I want the on-call D.I., I want HMIT,

I want CSI. This is the

attempted murder. Of a police

officer.

With a pained glance back at CATHERINE (who’s now in safe

hands) he dives into the house after his troops.

There’s nobody down here, Sir!

We discover TOMMY hiding behind an old coal hole. His eyes

his back pocket, and struggles to access his numbers. His

never in his life have felt so incapacitated. He finds the

number he’s looking for and it rings. Eventually
