The bodies of Lesley and John Kilbride are discovered in shallow graves on Saddleworth moor and Brady and Hindley are tried for murder, receiving multiple life sentences, though David is exonerated despite the pair trying to implicate him and it will be some years before the murderers confess to the whereabouts of other victims.

All right, sweetie.

Oh, look, you brought her!

Oh, what's she called?

Angela Dawn.

- Oh, she's just gorgeous!

- I know.

Everyone says she looks like Dave,

but I reckon she looks like me.


Oh. I'll see you after.

- He's lovely.

- I'll see you in a minute.

What a lovely surprise!

I promised the girls

that I'd pop back with the baby.

Sod the other girls!

They're not her auntie. I want her.

There you go.

Oh, you get bonnier by the day.

Don't you, my little Angela Dawn?

Eh? Ooh, eh?

Have you no care at all about the reputation

of this company, Miss Hindley?

You of all people

should know that the word "consignment"

contains a letter G.

And it's no' there.

I do apologise, Mr Brady.

Retype it, please.

Of course,

Mr Brady.

Ssh! Ssh.

- Ian.

- Maureen.

So, where's the father?

In the Tap Room in the Steelworks'

with his old man, I'll bet.

No, Dave's come over all responsible

since she was born. You wouldn't believe it.

You're right. I wouldn't.

He's scarce more than a kid himself.

No, honest,

he's taking fatherhood dead seriously.

I've just left him soaking nappies.



Listen, erm...

Ian and I were only saying the other night,

it's about time you brought Dave round.

Give him a proper welcome to the family.

I mean... he and Ian are practically

brothers-in-law now and yet...

Well, they still hardly know each other.

Yeah. I'd love to come round.

Good. Good.

I don't see the point in going round

to Myra's.

She doesn't like me. As for Ian,

I can't make head nor bloody tail of him.

Dave, we agreed, we're making a new start

and that includes my mam and dad.

- Hiya, Mam.

- Hello, love.

- Hiya, Dad.

- You're late, aren't you?

I know. It's taken ages getting

her stuff together.

- You're sure you don't mind?

- Of course not. Any time.

- Ooh.

- Hello.

Aaah. Give her to me.

I don't think we should leave her.

Oh, come on, of course you can.

Give her to me.

Come on, David. We're all family now.

Ooh, there you are.


She'll be fine.

You get off to Myra's.

Let's go.

- See you later.

- Ta-ra, love.

Ee! Ee.

Hey, come on, you. They won't bite.

- Hiya, Gran.

- Hello, Maureen, love.

- Are you all right?

- Yeah, fine. Fine, thanks.

- Gran's just going up, aren't you?

- Am I?

But she's only just come.

Yeah, and you're tired.

Come on. I'll bring you a cuppa

and a slice of bread and butter.


Night, love. Nice to see you.

- Yeah, you, too.

Eh! Don't forget that. There you go.

- And how are you, buggalugs?

- All right.

Anyone fancy a drink?

Do the honours, Hessy, please.

Jawohl, Liebling.

All right, Ian?

All right, Maureen. How are you?


And how's the weather?

Not bad.


- And how is the little 'un?

- She's fine, thanks.

- You like dogs, do you?

- Yeah, I've got one.

I have a question for you.

Does a dog have a soul?

You what?

I said, does a dog have a soul?

We can agree that a dog

maybe has a personality.

So why not a soul?

Or maybe you think

the entire notion of a soul is trash.


That dog is no more than a...

complex biological machine,

as are we, us, here now,

in this room.

And that, by extension,

the whole notion of a soul is shite.


The whole notion of God is, too.

Bloody hell, Neddie. You've confused him now.

Language, Hessy, please. Language.

That's rich coming from you.

Are you saying I'm a hypocrite?


Then why,

why would I have started a swear box?


I mean, standards have to be maintained.

Isn't that right, Maureen?

After all, we do share this house

with a respectable old lady.
