Wild Bill

Synopsis: Out on parole after 8 years inside, Bill Hayward returns home to find his now 11- and 15-year-old sons abandoned by their mother and fending for themselves. Unwilling to play Dad, an uncaring Bill is determined to move on. Although Dean the older boy has found a job and is doing his best to be a father to his younger brother Jimmy, the arrival of Bill brings them to the attention of social services. With the danger of being put into care looming, Dean forces his feckless dad to stay by threatening to grass him up for dealing. If there's one thing Bill doesn't want it's to go back to prison. He reluctantly agrees to stay for a week to help fool social services that the boys are being cared for. Having never really grown up himself, Bill quickly connects with Jimmy and, through this new bond, starts to realize what he's been missing. He has a family, a place in the world. He is a father. However, their happy family set-up is short lived when Jimmy gets into trouble with Bill's dangerous

Come on, hurry up.

Jonas, where am I putting these, mate?

Over there on the right.

Here, love.

Take this and give my best to T.

You don't have to pay me or nothing.

No, love, it's a tenner. It's for a cab.

Right. Thanks.

- Homework, yeah?

- Yeah.

Double Kick-Ass, is it?

Where'd you get the comic from anyway?

Swapped it.

For what? You ain't got nothing

to swap it with.


Fags! Where'd you get fags from?

- Swapped 'em!

I've told you, no nicking!

Not nicking! Swapping!

A woman and two kids?

I don't know nothing.

Flat is empty. Now f*** youse!

Got another little skank

Ain't you created enough misery in your life?

Yeah? Make it good.

Yeah, hello, T.

I thought I barred you for life.

Sure that weren't some other geezer?

Nah, yeah. It was me, yeah.

Seems like only yesterday you got sent down.

Bloody hell, time flies, dunnit?

Not inside, it don't.

The usual?

Ten pints, two grams and a punch-up?

Seriously, no trouble, right?

All right. I'm out on license.

If my dog shits on the pavement,

I get 18 months.

I mean, she's like a proper skepler, I tell you.

Her face was all roughed up and sh*t.

I mean, I bashed it...

All right?

Can't say I've seen them

for a while, me old son.

I knocked next door. Some big Russian lump

come out and coated me off.

Probably a Polish builder.

People have got the 'ump that they're here.

I don't mind them.

Don't mind getting their hands dirty.

British kids would much rather

sing like a bender in front of Simon Cowell.

I don't suppose you'd know

who he is, would you?

No, course I do.

It was our favourite programme in jail.

Run a book on it and everything.

Sounds like you miss it already.

(SCOFFS) Do I, f***!

I ain't never going back, mate.

It nearly killed me.

Oi! What the f***

you doing in my boozer?

You what?

(CHUCKLES) See, what did I tell you?

Geezer's a top-class nut job!

Yeah, back in the day, yeah.

Look at him. Wild Bill!

Bill. It's me, T.

Little Terry?

Yeah. Well, no. Everyone calls me T now.

Who was he? Social worker?

Don't know. Arsehole.

What'd he look like?

Like nothing. He look like arsehole.

Um, look, you got any sugar?

I've got medus, honey.

Yo, Victor!

One sec. Yo, Victor!

So what you gonna be doing,

now you're out?

Might go up north.

Do a bit of graft on the oil rigs.
