From Darkness script
From Darkness  Season #1 Episode #4 (2015)
Synopsis: From Darkness is a British psychological crime drama that premiered on BBC One on October 4, 2015. The series stars Anne-Marie Duff as former police officer Claire Church. A total of four episodes were broadcast. The series was both critically and commercially panned, leading to the likeliness of a second season materializing being very slim. A DVD of the complete series was released on November 9, 2015. Internationally, the series premiered in Australia on November 1, 2015, on BBC First.

Over the roar we hear a builder call out. He stares down in

the hole then up to the cab driver, motioning for him to

stop. A scrap of old material flutters on the end of the

digger's blade.

8 INT. JOHN’S HOUSE, HALLWAY - DAY 1 (18:12) 8

JULIE (45, professionally glamorous) greets female guests

at a Breast Cancer Awareness charity sale that she’s

it’s a girls’ night - pink, glamorous, giggly -

in aid of a good cause.


Hi. Don’t you look gorgeous. Wow!

Go through, grab yourselves a seat.

As her guests mill through to the lounge, she passes each one

a glass of fizz then glances up at JOHN who is trying to

sneak across the stairs to the kitchen without having to

become part of things - not a fan of his wife’s charity



(whispered/ mouthed)

More wine.




She gives him a swift look then heads through to the lounge

to join her guests.


(to guests)

There’s some gorgeous stuff for you

to bid on. Remember it’s all in a

good cause, so don’t be shy...

As JULIE continues to speak in the b.g. JOHN looks down at a

tray of glasses he’s meant to be manning. He picks up one of

the several bottles of PINK CAVA, stacked to the side, pops

the cork and begins to fill the glasses. As he does he hears

a peal of raucous female laughter from the lounge.


...imagine the look on his face

tonight if you go home wearing


He stops pouring, looks at the bottle and rather than fill

the next glass, just knocks back what’s left in it. As he

does, his mobile beeps. John looks at his phone, scowling at

the taste of the sweet pink fizz as he reads the new message.

He puts the bottle down, picks up his keys and heads to the

front door.
