Genre: Action

I've changed my mind,

I wanna go home.

Oh, come on, Charly,

we're here now.

Let's at least have

a look around.

Yeah, come on,

we'll look after ya.

I've got you, Charly.

You'll be fine with me.

I'm not gonna let anything bad

happen to you, okay? Okay?

Okay. Just don't let go,

all right?

- I really don't like it here.

- Sure.

I saw a generator outside.

This is better, isn't it?

All right.

You ready?

- Have you got the...

- Yeah.

We shouldn't be doing this.

This feels really wrong.

Well, I want to see something.

I mean, everyone talks about

the weird things they've seen.

I want to see it.

Stop worrying, Charly.

Nothing bad's gonna happen, okay?

And even if there is a ghost,

it can't hurt you.


What the hell was that?

Oh, God. Please, can you take me home?

Please, can you take me home?


Follow me!

It won't f***ing open!

Okay, Nicola, the thing is...

Oh, it's Nicole. Nicole.

Sorry, Nicole.

It's not that you're not good on camera,

it's just...

Well, there's nothing

really here, is there?

I need better content.

I need proper stories.

Don't you feed them

to your reporters, though?

Well, sometimes

we have to, yeah.

But I want somebody who can

bring me the story, you know.

The big story. That means people

will watch us instead of EastEnders.

I need passion. I need drive.

I need more than this.

But, listen, I can do this.

You know,

I can deliver the goods.

I'm... You know,

I'm good at this.

- Yeah, look...

- I'm... I'm really good.

Nicole... Okay.

Go away. Find me a story that

people actually want to hear,

get it shot and then come back.

Okay? It's that simple.



Mmm. Not exactly.

It's going to be

tougher than I hoped.

Yeah... Well, look,

I'll tell you more about it when I get home.

I'm just getting

in the car, okay?

All right. Bye, babe.

I know you've probably heard some

ridiculous rumors about this place,

but I can assure you,

it's all bollocks.

People have a funny way of handing

in their notice.

Hey, if you don't like it,

just let us know.

Don't just disappear.

Of course,

I'm sure it'll be fine.

I've been doing

this kind of work for years.


Well, it's pretty

self-explanatory, really.

Patrol around the grounds,

walk through the building

a couple of times at night

and you can leave

at 8:
00 a.m.

Now, the contractors are here

some nights but not others,

but lock up behind yourself.

Oh, and it still hasn't

been cleaned up in there

so there's a pretty odd vibe

to the place,

but that's all it is.

Once we get

the place stripped out,

it'll stop all of

those bizarre rumors.

Okay. No problem.

Leave it to me.

I'll leave you to it.

Nobody ever leaves.

Sit, sit, sit.

You're doing well, David,

you really are.

But, you're not ready yet.

If you come off it now,

you'll slip into depression

and it'll just be harder

in the long run.

You need more time to adjust.

Okay, well...

You're the expert, Chris.

I trust you.


You're a f*** up, David.

You'll never be free of this.

You're here until I let you go

and that's

just not going to happen.

I'm gonna take your wife.

I'm gonna take your money.

I'm gonna take everything.

You will never leave.

Why don't you take that side?

Come on, David,

you're all right.

Just get you up.

Let's get him...

Let's get him cleaned up.

Slow down.

Adam, go to your room.


Hey, babe.

I've got something for you.

Excuse me.

What's this?

I think you should check it out.

The old rehab clinic

on Grove Road.

There's more stories about

people going missing there.
