10 EXT. UPPER LIGHTHAZELS FARM. DAY 15. 13.00 10

ASHLEY (plus another LAD in the passenger seat) drives an

open-backed wagon (laden with bags of sand) up to the

farmhouse. There are a couple of men working on the site.

ASHLEY steps out. The LAD goes and opens up the back of the

wagon and starts unloading the sacks, one by one, just as

TOMMY and LEWIS used to. JULIE happens to be heading out of

the house and over to the Evoque, dressed for work. Her face

like thunder. A very unhappy woman.

JULIE:

(looking out across the

landscape)

Where are they?

ASHLEY:

Who?

ASHLEY is also a shadow of his former self.

JULIE:

I thought they had you ‘under

observation’ at all times?

HAPPY VALLEY. EPISODE SIX. BY SALLY WAINWRIGHT. 6.

ASHLEY:

Shh!

(he doesn’t want the new

LAD or the men on the

site to hear that. He

glances surreptitiously

out at the landscape)

Dunno. They’ll be somewhere.

There’s a car parked several hundred yards away. It may well

be pensioners out for the day, but JULIE decides it’s NCA.

She lifts her top up and flashes her charlies at them.

ASHLEY (CONT’D)

What you doing?

He lunges at her to make her cover herself up.

JULIE:

Geddoff me, bastard! You bastard.

(then she points at ASHLEY

and the wagon, and mouths

loud and clear to the

vast landscape)

NOTHING. TO DO WITH ME.

ASHLEY:

*[Fucking] stop it!

*Words in [square brackets] to be implied rather than stated.

JULIE heads off and slams into her Evoque.

CUT TO:

11 EXT. CANAL TOW PATH, HEBDEN BRIDGE. DAY 15. 14.30 11

TOMMY’s taking shelter under a canal bridge along the tow

path. He inhales deeply on a cigarette. He sees the narrow

boats parked all along the canal bank, all of them closed up

for the winter. The whole place seems odd and silent and

deserted. TOMMY flicks his fag into the canal, pulls his

collar up, and walks along the tow-path.
