Your father was just as insolent,

but then he could afford to be.

He was very good at his job, Renko.

Cut, cut, cut, cut, cut, cut.

For God's sake, Yuri,

can't you concentrate?

Your button, man. Your tunic button.

It's hanging off. Wardrobe!

Irina! Irina, please.

OK, let's set up again from the top.

Remember, you're tired, you're

frightened, Napoleon has you on the run.

Be careful, Misha.

- Show me that barn door again.

- Opening positions, everybody.

Quiet, please. Let's get ready to do this.

Ready to roll.

What does a chief investigator

want with me?

We found your skates.

Your name was scratched on them.

Oh, those. I lost them months ago.

You reported them missing on February 4

but said you lost them on January 31.

You didn't know

they were missing for four days?

That's how it is. You don't

miss something till you need it.

- They were found on a dead girl.

- There is justice after all.

Please, don't be shocked. You've no idea

how long it took to save for those skates.

Look at my boots. See?


She was murdered.

The girl wearing your skates.

The director of that film promised me

new boots if I went to bed with him.

Think I should?

Winter is almost over.

Exactly. And me a Siberian.

I am used to the cold.

Is your heart cold too?


The girl wearing your skates,

about your age.

Two others were found with her,

also murdered. Their faces were cut off.

What has this to do with me?

What do you want?

Think back. Any idea

who took your skates?

I suspect everyone.

So do I.


Are you going to arrest me

for losing my skates?

- Perhaps not.

- Good.

Then please leave me alone.

It's cold. We've been skating,

but we've left the skating paths

for the clearing. Why?

- To talk.

- To eat. It's why anyone goes skating.

Dennis Potter

Dennis Christopher George Potter (17 May 1935 – 7 June 1994) was an English television dramatist, screenwriter and journalist. After graduating from Oxford University, he initially worked in journalism. After standing for parliament as a Labour candidate at the 1964 general election, his health was affected by the onset of psoriatic arthropathy which necessitated Potter changing careers and led to him becoming a television dramatist. His new career began with contributions to the BBC's Wednesday Play anthology series in 1965, and continued to work in the medium for the next thirty years. He is best known for his BBC TV serials Pennies from Heaven (1978), The Singing Detective (1986), and the television plays Blue Remembered Hills (1979) and Brimstone and Treacle (1976). His television dramas mixed fantasy and reality, the personal and the social and often used themes and images from popular culture. Potter is widely regarded as one of the most influential and innovative dramatists to have worked in British television. more…
