- My uncle's.

He died ten years ago.

- Peter, do l have to sleep here?

- Be patient, my love.

l shall come to you at 1 1 o'clock, when

my aunt and the judge are both asleep.

l do love you.

Better you go now.

Your aunt.

1 1 o'clock, then.

So, young man,

beware the wiles of women.

l tell you, in confidence,

a long time ago,

l was your aunt's admirer.

l give you His Catholic Majesty,

King James lll.

God bless him and keep him in exile.

(Glass smashes)

(Wind howling)



Peter, is that you?


- (Creaking)

- Ah!

(Rosalind screaming)

Rosalind! Rosalind!


What have you been doing? What is it?


- (Judge) What is it?

- Oh!

(Screaming stops)

What is it?


Come out. The sight of you disturbs her.

What have you been doing?

Let me get in there.

Still, you little vixen. Do you hear me?

- Stay still.

- Rosalind!

(Mistress Banham) Oh! She scratched me.


(Judge) Ellen, fetch Ralph.

l want nails and some wood.

ls there a doctor near?


(Rosalind moaning)

- No!

- She is beyond our reach.

Tomorrow, the men from the bedlam

will take her into care.

The madhouse?

Judge yourself fortunate, young man.

She could never have been

the fit wife for you.


- The fever is high.

- (Cock crowing)

There are so many sick of unknown

maladies in these parts,

l fear a general plague.

We have much to learn.

- Have you some eau de vie?

- Yes, sir. l'll fetch you some.

- What is happening to me?

- Pray, do not distress yourself.

You merely have some distemper,

as yet unknown to me.

l will open a vein

and the humour will, perhaps, pass out.

lf she's bled, 'twill ease her.

lt's all l can do.

You look. l don't want to.

Cathy's afeard.

l heard screams last night.

No. You dreamed 'em, you mean.
