And When Did You Last See Your Father?


We could've done the whole thing

for nothing in the van.

- There was too much stuff for the van.

- You can afford it on what you earn?

Who wants to take mummy

up some breakfast?

- Bye, Granddaddy.

- See you later.

My little helpers!

- I do all right, Dad.

- Why'd you borrow this money off me?

- If you were a doctor...

- A bit late for this conversation.

- What's this doing here?

- It's going in the loft.

- This is Uncle Bert's chandelier.

- It's wire and glass, Dad.

Right. I'm going to need a stepladder.

Phillips screwdriver.

Length of rope.

- Dad?

- It's all right.

Don't fuss. It's nothing.

Your father's going to die, Blake.

Of course we all die sooner or later,

but I'm afraid, with your father,

it will be sooner.

- Will there be pain?

- There shouldn't be.

Not with this kind of cancer.

Usually they just slip away.

- So how long?

- Can't say.

Depends if he feels like fighting.

He knows then?

He asked me the moment he came around.

So I put him in the picture.

- But we do have time?

- That depends.

- Time for what?

- Well, time for... know, putting things in order.

That means you have

to get the conundrum.

If you do, you will win

by just one point.

It's so dramatic, I want to spell it out

so we all know what lies ahead

in the next few seconds. OK.

So very intense time for everybody now.

Please now, if everyone's ready,

reveal the final

Countdown Conundrum.

- What did the doctor say?

- He said there's progress.

Said you'd be back home soon.

... young woman was

discovered in a house

in the Clacton area of Leeds

just after midnight last night.

Terrible. Just terrible.

- Know what I'd do?

- Bring back hanging?

Go if you want.

Actually, maybe I will,

if that's OK.

I'll pop back when you're home?
