Wake Wood

Synopsis: Still grieving the death of nine-year-old Alice - their only child - at the jaws of a crazed dog, vet Patrick and pharmacist Louise relocate to the remote town of Wake Wood where they learn of a pagan ritual that will allow them three more days with Alice. The couple find the idea disturbing and exciting in equal measure, but once they agree terms with Arthur, the village's leader, a far bigger question looms - what will they do when it's time for Alice to go back?

is not for everyone.

And what goes on?

Please, make another baby to love.

I can't.

I know how you feel.

No, I don't think you do.

Deirdre's not your niece.

So, then, tell me.

You want to get your daughter back,

don't you?

Is that possible?

[Phone rings]

I can't say, and that's the truth.

[Ringing continues]

- Hello.

- [Patrick] Hey.

I've gotta go over to O'Shea's.

Can you help?

- I can't.

- Pick you up at ten?

- [Mooing]

- [O'Shea] Go on, go on. Get in there.

Go on, get in there.

Go on, get up there.

- That's a bitch of a fever he's got.

- Yeah, he has all right.

I'll give him a shot.

Can you prep 35 mil?

And maybe get

an anti-inflammatory as well.

[O'Shea] Go on, get up.

Get up here! Go on. Get up there!

- [Patrick] Move up. Move him up.

- [O'Shea] Go up there.

- Go on, get up. Get up, get up!

- [O'Shea's son] He won't move, Da.

[O'Shea] Come on!

[Son] Come on!

- What are you doing?

- Let me see.

- Shush, woman!

- I'll try and get him where he is.

Keep still.

We're gonna have to get him

up to the restraint. Go on! Go on!

- Bad idea, Mick.

- Don't be upsetting yourself.

- [Patrick] Get out of there, Mick!

- Come on! Come on!

- Come on!

- [Son] Da, please! Da, please.

[Patrick] Get out of there! Pull him up!

Pull him up! Pull him up!

Open the front gate!

[Louise] I can't! It's stuck! Push it!

Da! Da!


You did everything possible.

I think you'd better find someone else

to run the practice.

We're leaving Wakewood.

It's been a shock to you.

We'll talk tomorrow.


We're not staying.

Tell me about your daughter.

- This isn't the time.

- I think it is the time.

- Arthur...

- Listen to me.

Listen to me.

I can bring your daughter back to life

for a short time,

so you can see her, hold her again
