Down Terrace

Synopsis: After serving jail time for a mysterious crime, Bill and Karl get out of jail and become preoccupied with figuring out who turned them in to the police. On top of that, the "family business" is on the rocks, and the motley crew of criminals who operate out of Down Terrace aren't feeling terribly trusting of one another. It might look like an ordinary house, but at Down Terrace, the walls are closing in...

- Take a fucking dig, Eric!

- Feel that.

- It's soft as shite.

- Oh, you bastard!

I forgot to pick

the kids up.

- Bill:
Oh, a man out of time.

- Shit.

- Eric:
What's happened?

- ( phone vibrating )

Oh, that's them

outside now.

I'd better go.


Who's out there?

- Karl:
It's his missus.

- Bill:
Is she coming in?

No no no.

I'd better go.

I gotta feed the kids

and that, but--

Is that Helen?

I ain't seen her in years.

Yeah yeah.

We gotta go.

Well, uh, nice one.

Well done and everything.

- Yeah, well done.

- Cheers, Garv.

Yeah, see you later.

See you, Maggie.

See you, everyone.

Cheers, Garv.

Have a good one, mate.

She looks

absolutely furious.

Give 'em a kiss

for me, Garv.

She's fit--

his missus, mate.

- Hoo-hoo.

- Karl:
That's his old missus.

His new missus is like

a hippo-croco-pig.

( all chuckling )

- Eric:
A bit shortsighted.

- Looks a bit like him in a lady mirror.

A female version of Garvey.

Can you imagine it?

Give us one of those beers.

Oh, these are from Garvey.

- Good old Garvin, eh?

- Bill:
Yeah, cheers.

- What a little superstar.

- Eric:
He's shaken 'em up, hasn't he?

He's totally fucking

depth-charged me.

Why don't you just pour it

over the carpet?

- ( urinating )

- Karl. Oi.

- Yeah? Hello, mate.

- Come here, I've got something to show you.

Hold on a second.

By the way, when are

you coming back to work?

Soon. Just got to be

a bit careful, that's all.

Well, you need

to hurry up.

I'm running round

like a blue-ass fly.

This thing don't

run itself, you know?

- Everything's going all right though, yeah?

- Yeah.

A bit of trouble in Whitehawk,

but otherwise shway shway.

- Sweet.

- Come on out.

I've got something

to show you.

You are coming back

to work, aren't you?
