Sweeping aerial shot of London, establishing the city in all
1AA EXT. SOUTHWARK BRIDGE. DAY. 1AA
We swoop down the Thames to find a svelte figure on the
bridge hailing a taxi.
2 INT. CHURCH. DAY 2
SHAZZER, early forties, and her folk singer husband FERGUS,
scurry down the aisle.
The church is packed with people we might recognise. A few
literary and TV celebrities amongst them. Shazzer spots JUDE,
now a pillar of married respectability, her husband GILES and
their tiny baby. They take the seats beside them.

4 INT. CHURCH. DAY. 4
BRIDGET JONES enters the church. She’s older than when we
last saw her, forty three to be exact, slim and elegantly
dressed. She takes a deep breath and collects herself.
Bridget spots Jude and Shazzer and heads towards them.
Shazzer greets her with a big hug.
How are you feeling, you OK?
Yes, but I still can’t believe he’s
REVEAL - at the front a portrait of DANIEL CLEAVER.
ANOTHER REVEAL - The congregation consists mainly of
ludicrously attractive, glamorous women, all weeping.
His death seems to have hit the
Eastern European teenage modelling
community particularly hard.
They found the flight recorder but
still no bodies.
Yep, in the Australian outback. And
strangely fitting that he died
going down in the bush.
A random guy, JOHN, takes his place next to Bridget. A hush
descends and the service begins.
A dour looking Minister assumes the pulpit.
Dear friends, we are gathered here
to celebrate the life of Daniel
Vivian Cleaver. Daniel was a kind
and wonderful son, a loving Uncle
and brother, a fantastic friend...
(aside to Bridget)
A selfish but gifted lover?
Bridget gives a little smile, but then stops in her tracks.
Fuck. What the fuck is he doing
We see MARK DARCY enter at the back of the church. A little
older, a little greyer, but still just as handsome.
As Bridget takes this surprise in, she sees an attractive
woman, CAMILLA take his arm.
You know what he’s like, wanting to
do the decent thing.
Is that his wife?
I mean, yes, conventionally, I
SUDDENLY DARCY LOOKS OVER.
Bridget, aware of Darcy’s gaze, grabs onto random John’s arm.
Sorry, I’m just very emotional.
Darcy looks over, she pretends not to see and affectionately
brushes the fluff from a bewildered John’s shoulder.
Darcy faintly but discernibly registers this.
John tries to shake himself free. Bridget struggles to cling
on to his arm but John uncouples himself, and Bridget is left
solo. Darcy glances over.
I would now like to invite his
loved ones up to share some of
their memories of Daniel.
Shazzer gives Bridget a nudge, as if to say go on. Bridget
contemplates the idea as a glamorous young woman gets up from
the front pew.
(whispers to Jude)
You know he could be very
sensitive, he could make you feel
like you were the only woman in the
world. I remember when he took me
rowing on the Serpentine and quoted
Keats by heart. “Where be ye going,
you Devon Maid? And what have ye
there in the basket?”
Bridget drifts off in fond reverie. The glamorous young woman
stands in the pulpit.
GLAMOROUS YOUNG WOMAN
...“Ye tight little fairy just
fresh from the dairy, Will ye give
me some cream if I ask it?”
In the front pew several more young women look at each other
awkwardly, clearly sharing exactly the same memory.
