Cherry Tree Lane

Synopsis: Prosperous professional couple Mike and Christine are settling in for a standard evening of wine, TV and low-level marital hostility when a ring on their doorbell changes everything. Turns out their son Sebastian is in a little trouble with some local boys, who are quite prepared to camp out and wait for him to get home... The resulting culture-clash chamber drama is raw, revealing and nerve-splittingly tense.

l can make sure Mike will be here.

You know what he's like.

He's not back now, no.

Yeah. No, no.

Yeah, nothing exciting.

To be fair,

he'd do the same thing for me.

Yeah, so Cheyl made it, then, did she?

Yeah? Was it nice?

Not since it opened.

Three weeks? Yeah...

Just a card?

Yeah, no, l...

You talked to her, then?

Let me do this. Out the way.

Just asking.

l know.

lf you want to talk properly,

we'll be sat down in a second.

- Where's Sebastian?

- Football.

Can you take some things in?

And a glass.

Hello.

A vey good evening to you.

Tributes have been paid

to the people killed

in the London terror attacks

five years ago.

A memorial has been unveiled

in Hyde Park

to remember those who died

in the July 7th bombings

when suicide bombers targeted

underground trains and a bus.

Survivors include

James Kent from Belsize Park...

Do we have to have the TV on?

..has been nominated

for a bravey award.

The Ministy of...

- You want to hear what she said?

- Yeah.

Thanks for this.

Right.

So l spoke to Simon this afternoon.

- But he's not in charge.

- No. She hasn't been in.

And can you not phone her?

No, l want to talk to her

face to face.

He's a bloody idiot.

He's still likely to know something.

Go on, then.

Said it was up to me.

lf l wanted to go out on my own,

there's nothing they'd do to stop me.

That's good, then, isn't it?

No. l thought they might at least

ty and put me off, you know?

- You don't want to stay there anyway.

- l know. l just...

Be nice if they wanted to keep me,

though.

Did he tell you

how she might feel about it?

No.

- Who's that?

- l don't know.

..open and continue

to operate as usual.

- Is Seb in?

- No, sory, he's not in.

Do you know what time

he'll be back?

No. Do you want me

to say who's calling?

No, that's fine. OK, bye.

An inquest begins today into

how a man died in an extreme...

- Who was it?

- Some of Sebastian's mates.

What did you tell them?

What do you think

l told them? That he's not in.

- Wasn't his druggy mates, was it?

- No.

Absolute state.

Please, let's not get into this again.

l'm not getting into anything. l just

don't want them coming in this house.

It wasn't even them, was it?

l just said.

What are you getting so defensive for?

It's nothing to do with you.

l know. l just don't see the point

in having a debate about it

when it wasn't even them.

That's fine. l wasn't going to.

So, who do you get from the clients?

Who will go with you?

Erm, well, l think Matt Haven will.

At least, he said he will.

- Don't know him.

- Owns Field Sports.

Got a couple of outlets.

You know, it's...

lt depends upon the lengths

that Susan's gonna...

- Oh, go on, just ask me.

- What?

l'm not stupid. l know you,

you can't help yourself, so just...

Well, is he?

Couldn't not bring it up, could you?

Couldn't not.

Well, you just told me to ask.

You just asked me.

Because you're desperate to.

l don't even have that account any more.

You know that.

No, l didn't know that.

No, l didn't.

You don't tell me evemhing.

Jeremy's constantly in your head,

isn't he? Hmm?

Nothing... Nothing happened.
