- 1. Got a customer.
- 2. - I'm on my lunch.
- Yeah, I can smell that.
- 3. Mine's in five minutes,
so if I start with a customer now,
- 4. it cuts into my break.
- 5. That's Keith Holligan.
- 6. So?
- 7. So he murdered his wife.
- 8. Oh, it were manslaughter.
- 9. Judge said she drove him to it.
- 10. Don't seem like the strangling type to me.
- 11. - Puffy hands.
- Surely, we don't have to serve him.
- 12. Everyone needs shoes, Nida.
How about doing your job?
- 13. I think I'm going to need the 11.
- 14. I'm large.
- 15. For my height.
- 16. - Sure you can't do a discount?
- I'm so sorry. No, we can't.
- 17. I'm just a bit strapped
till the end of the month.
- 18. I can put them aside for you.
- 19. Go on, then.
- 20. If you fancy writing down your number,
I won't mind.
- 21. Reckon he's into your sort.
- 22. Time and time and time again!
- 23. And so we've been treated
to this rather pathetic display
- 24. of a flailing government
holding on for dear life.
- 25. And it is thanks
to Mr. Callaghan's government limping on
- 26. that our nation has suffered
through a winter of discontent.
- 27. Now, they promise us a brighter future,
- 28. yet the fact remains
that Labour isn't working.
- 29. - He's a bit bloody young, in't he?
- He's good though.
- 30. They haven't just failed nationally,
but right here in Tipley.
- 31. You only have to look around to see it.
Rubbish in the streets. Crime on the rise.
- 32. The character of your neighborhood
- 33. under threat.
- 34. Bloody right!
We don't wanna end up like Cheetham.
- 35. You hear what he said? He said,
"We don't wanna end up like Cheetham."
- 36. Of course, we all want change,
but the right kind.
- 37. So don't just hope for a better future.
- 38. Vote for one!
- 39. Thank you. Thank you very much.
- 40. As the election nears,
- 41. polls show
Mrs. Thatcher's Conservative Party
- 42. retains a commanding lead.
- 43. Violence erupts as the far-right
National Front march through Southall,
- 44. causing thousands in damage
- 45. with over 100 arrests
and five police officers hospitalized.
- 46. US and Soviet
nuclear non-proliferation talks hit—
- 47. Down two places to number six,
"Does Your Mother Know" by ABBA.
- 48. A new entry at five for Paul McCartney
and Wings with "Good Night Tonight."
- 49. And at number four right now here
in the studio with their hit "Rasputin,"
- 50. it's Boney M.
- 51. You're dreaming
if you think you can pull that off.
- 52. Mr. Duncan wants a word.
- 53. So, Nida, it's nothing major,
- 54. but I understand you're in the habit
of eating your lunch in the stockroom.
- 55. - Oh—
- It's fine.
- 56. Everybody does it.
We don't mind. But it's...
- 57. it's what you're eating.
- 58. You see, most people's food,
um, normal food,
- 59. it doesn't tend to linger afterwards.
- 60. It's not really fair on your coworkers,
- 61. and there is a chance it could...
well, it could get into the shoe leather.
- 62. So, if you must eat in there,
maybe just bring in a sandwich.
- 63. Like a cheese and ham sandwich.
- 64. Or just a cheese sandwich, if you're
one of those that doesn't do ham.
- 65. - Of course, I'm sorry to have to ask—
- I'll do sandwiches from now on.
- 66. You know, I think Vicky will be
- 67. But as... as will we all.
- 68. The thing is,
I did bring a biryani in today.
- 69. I see.
- 70. Well, um, it's— How about the basement?
- 71. - Yes! Yes, you could use the basement.
- The basement?
- 72. Mr. Possett himself used to work
down there in the early days.
- 73. He didn't like to be disturbed.
It couldn't be further from civilization.
- 74. Thank you, Mr. Duncan.
- 75. Very good. Very good. Thank you, Nida.
- 76. What?
- 77. Hello, what do you want?
- 78. Just taking my lunch break.
- 79. Hmm.
- 80. Hmm?
- 81. Transuranic heavy elements
may not be used where there is life.
- 82. Medium atomic weights are available.
- 83. Gold, Lead, Copper.
- 84. Jet, Diamond, Radium,
- 85. Sapphire, Silver, and Steel.
- 86. Sapphire and steel have been assigned.
- 87. Hello.
- 88. So, where are they?
Mum and Dad?
- 89. - Gone.
- Gone? Gone where?
- 90. Out of the door, downstairs?
- 91. Well, where, then?
- 92. Here in the room?
- 93. You mean they disappeared, Helen?
- 94. Uh, yeah, hi.
So, my name's Gaap. I'm a demon.
- 95. You anointed this talisman
with your blood,
- 96. so now we're bound together and—
- 97. Bloody hell.
- 98. Look, I... I've got
a whole introductory speech here.
- 99. We... we gotta work together.
- 100. Can you pick me up?
- 101. Come on, pick me up.
- 102. Just... just pick me up.
- 103. Please?
- 104. That's it. Come on. Come on.
- 105. I... I... I won't bite.
- 106. I promise. Come on.
- 107. Right. So, as I was saying,
you anointed the talisman,
- 108. and the rules are you've gotta carry out
three human sacrifices
- 109. over the next three days
- 110. or else the world's gonna end.
- 111. What?
- 112. If you want me to help you,
you need to permit me entry.
- 113. Uh...
- 114. Dost thou permit me entry? Yes or no?
- 115. This isn't real.
- 116. You have to say "yes."
Just say the word "yes." Say it.
- 117. If you say "yes," I'll... I'll stop, okay?
I'll go away.
- 118. You'll never hear from me again, like this
didn't happen. Just say "yes." Say it.
- 119. Say it. Come on, say it. Say it.
Say it! Say it! Say it!
- 120. Yes!
- 121. Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey.
Come on. What's the matter?
- 122. All right, I gotta be honest.
I lied about going away.
- 123. Uh, hang on. Is it... is it these?
- 124. Yeah, yeah, sorry. My regular appearance
is probably a bit much for this realm.
- 125. Uh, just a sec.
- 126. This any better for ya?
- 127. I peered into your soul,
- 128. and apparently, this is a physical look
you find appealing, so...
- 129. Maybe you saw this recently and liked it?
- 130. I don't know. Let me have a look.
- 131. Wow.
- 132. Uh...
- 133. Okay. Am I, like, a clown?
- 134. This how clowns dress in your realm?
- 135. I mean, I can... I can work with it, but...
- 136. Uh...
- 137. You have got to get over the shock
and just talk to me.
- 138. You know, we have got to work together.
- 139. I'm dreaming.
- 140. Dream— You're really not, you know.
- 141. You're not real.
- 142. You're not real.
You're not real. You're not real.
- 143. Hiya. Like I said,
we have got to work together.
- 144. It's blood and bone. You marked
the talisman. I don't make the rules.
- 145. I mean, basically, we need to deliver
three sacrifices by Maymass—
- 146. Uh, that's May Day to you. Or else it's...
- 147. Well, it's burning skies time.
- 148. I sense you need some convincing.
- 149. Uh...
- 150. Let me show you
how this will play out, all right?
- 151. What'll happen if we don't succeed.
- 152. Ready?
- 153. Three, two, one.
- 154. So, basically, this is the sort of thing
we're dealing with.
- 155. Scorching wall of flame.
- 156. It's agonizing death for all, and so on.
- 157. See, burning people, they do smell
like you'd expect, don't they?
- 158. Like a... a burger on a griddle.
- 159. It's quite nice
if you disassociate from it.
- 160. Mind you, the charred hair
really gets stuck in your throat.
- 161. To be honest, I don't want the apocalypse
to come about any more than you do.
- 162. So let's stop it happening, you and me.
- 163. All we have to do
is deliver three sacrifices in three days.
- 164. It's only three killings.
- 165. Like I said, animals don't count.
You have to do humans.
- 166. And there's gotta be a cadence to it.
One a day.
- 167. It's one kill a day. It... it's...
- 168. Wha... what?
- 169. That is fewer people than die falling off
ladders in the same time period.
- 170. You'd be less lethal than a ladder.
- 171. If I talk to you, you're real,
so I'm not gonna talk to you.
- 172. Well, we started conversing already,
so that ship has sailed.
- 173. - No, it hasn't.
- Oh, oh, yes, it has.
- 174. Uh, don't worry. We're a team.
- 175. I'm on your side here, you know?
- 176. Let's just get kill number one
under your belt. Start racking 'em up.
- 177. You can stop it
because I am not killing anyone.
- 178. so I don't know
why you keep talking to me!
- 179. That's what I'm here for.
All right? Moral support.
- 180. So just hold on to that brick.
Let's go thwack someone.
- 181. - What brick?
- The one in your hand, love.
- 182. I'm not doing what you say.
- 183. What's that, love?
- 184. Oh yeah.
- 185. Yeah, he's perfect.
- 186. There's no witnesses.
- 187. - Talk about beginner's luck.
- 188. One quick pop to the head and you're done.
- 189. Please, make him stop.
- 190. Make who stop?
- 191. Love? Are you all right?
- 192. - I need a doctor.
- You want me to go and call one?
- 193. Would it help if I told you
I can see into this man's soul,
- 194. and he absolutely deserves to die?
- 195. - Shut up!
- He's got a daughter.
- 196. Her name's Laura. She's eight years old.
- 197. Do you wanna know what he does to her?
- 198. - No, I don't wanna know.
- Sorry, love. I don't follow.
- 199. He pays Laura a little nighttime visit—
- 200. Shut up!
- 201. Is everything okay?
- 202. Do you wanna know how the bastard
makes her feel? Get a load of this.
- 203. She kills herself, aged 28,
exhausted by the pain and the shame of it.
- 204. Maybe put that down.
- 205. Yeah, it does take some getting used to,
I'll grant you that.
- 206. But a couple more of those
and I'll be out of your hair.
- 207. Look, hang on.
- 208. Uh... Yeah, yeah. Look, see? One line gone.
- 209. That's one sacrifice registered.
Two to go.
- 210. You've got a whole day
to pick the next one.
- 211. Oh, come on. You—
- 212. You forgot to flush.
- 213. Oof. Fuck me.
- 214. Sorry to disturb you, sir.
- 215. - What is it, Suz?
- A missing person.
- 216. Boy or girl?
- 217. A 39-year-old man.
- 218. A Tim Simons.
- 219. No, don't know him.
- 220. His wife said
he didn't come home last night.
- 221. Yeah, because he's on the piss.
- 222. It's not even 24 hours yet.
- 223. I know, but, sir, the thing is,
she says his dog came home without him.
- 224. I suppose we stopped taking pictures
of each other.
- 225. Here.
- 226. That's him.
- 227. He... he never stays out. He...
- 228. Something's happened. I know it.
- 229. We don't know anything's happened at all.
- 230. Hello.
- 231. Who's this?
- 232. It's okay.
- 233. It's okay, Laura.
- 234. This man and this lady
are going to help find Daddy.
- 235. Worried sick, aren't you, love?
- 236. How long are you
just gonna sit there for?
- 237. You're late for work. You have to go in.
You can't have people getting suspicious.
- 238. I mean it.
If you don't turn up—
- 239. Fucking shut up!
- 240. I killed a man.
- 241. - I've killed someone.
- Yeah, that was hours ago.
- 242. I keep feeling the crack of his skull
on the brick.
- 243. I did that.
- 244. It's your fault.
- 245. You're not even—
- 246. I'm crazy.
- 247. I'm a crazy person.
- 248. They said Mum was mad.
- 249. They'll say it about me.
- 250. But this time, they'll be right.
They'll be totally bloody right.
- 251. Hey, look, look. You're not crazy.
- 252. I'm a murderer.
- 253. Yeah, but you're not a crazy one.
- 254. Why is this happening?
- 255. Look.
- 256. This is actually my first assignment.
- 257. It's more of an initiation, really.
Sort of earning my wings.
- 258. I mean, I'm new to this too.
- 259. I'm not a bad person.
- 260. Oh no. No. It wouldn't work if you were.
It has to be someone corruptible.
- 261. So, I mean, if you think about it,
what's happening here,
- 262. it actually reflects really well
on your character.
- 263. Huh?
- 264. Yeah.
- 265. What... what are you doing?
- 266. - Calling the police.
- What? Why?
- 267. - Why?
- So they'll arrest me.
- 268. But then you won't be able
to do the other sacrifices.
- 269. Good!
- 270. Then the apocalypse will happen,
and billions will die.
- 271. I mean, I know. I get it.
- 272. You don't want the blood
of three victims on your hands,
- 273. but if it saves billions...
- 274. Hello, emergency services.
What service do you require?
- 275. Hello?
- 276. Hello? Is anyone there—
- 277. See? You... you are a good person.
- 278. What do I do?
- 279. Just carry on as usual
so the normals don't get spooked,
- 280. which means going to work.
- 281. And while you're there,
we can decide who to kill next.
- 282. Hello.
- 283. What's this?
- 284. You were supposed to be in at 9:00.
- 285. I threw up this morning.
I thought I might be ill.
- 286. Oh, don't come near me.
- 287. I don't want your germs.
- 288. You look awful.
- 289. Well, she's nice.
- 290. Front-runner for the old...
- 291. Uh, she does steal from the till,
- 292. - Gotta pick someone!
- 293. God, I... I do love a little old lady. Hey...
- 294. Oh, isn't she sweet?
- 295. She can't stop thinking
about the end though.
- 296. They can't wait for it to come.
You'd be doing her a favor.
- 297. Shut up.
- 298. - What was that, love?
- 299. - She dreams of death. Even now—
- How are those for you?
- 300. I think they're good.
I'll just go and have a little look.
- 301. Just do it. No one will miss her.
- 302. No, shut up.
- 303. She's nearly dead already.
- 304. Very nice.
- 305. Sir?
- 306. - Sir?
- 307. They said you're in here.
- 308. That was nice of 'em.
- 309. - Can it wait?
- It's Tim Simons.
- 310. Oh aye. Turned up, has he?
- 311. He has, sir, but he's dead.
- 312. Someone's clobbered him, sir.
- 313. So they have.
- 314. So, come on.
What time do you finish?
- 315. Depends what time you wanna start.
- 316. Maybe I won't wanna stop.
- 317. And maybe I won't wanna stop you.
- 318. How about this handsome fucker, eh?
- 319. God's gift till he loses his hair at 32
- 320. and spends the next 29 years
taking it out on his missus.
- 321. - Stop showing me this stuff.
- His missus won't be her.
- 322. She never marries. Very sad.
- 323. Well, well, look. It's half-five already.
You gotta get the next one in by midnight.
- 324. You have to pick someone.
- 325. On your last trip, did you discover
what the Earth people eat?
- 326. They eat a great many of these.
- 327. They peel them with their metal knives.
- 328. Boil them for 20 of their minutes.
- 329. For fuck's sake.
- 330. - Do you want the apocalypse to happen?
- You're in the way.
- 331. They are clearly
a most primitive people.
- 332. Nuclear tensions rise
as talks break down
- 333. and US and Soviet jets...
- 334. I was watching that.
- 335. Both superpowers possess
a growing arsenal of atomic weaponry,
- 336. yet given the horrific devastation
any nuclear exchange would cause,
- 337. it's assumed the policy...
- 338. You see that?
- 339. It's manifesting.
- 340. Do you understand? This is the form
it's taking. This is real.
- 341. You don't have much time.
- 342. You're the only one who can stop it.
- 343. No. No.
- 344. Don't take the piss, Nida.
- 345. No, you're not... you're not a knife person.
- 346. - Way too grabby. Cut your hands all up.
- 347. Oh, I know. I know. Down there.
- 348. Yes.
- 349. That's you. You're a basher.
- 350. Come on, you've had the practice now.
It'll be way easier this time.
- 351. Dutch courage, eh? That's what you need.
Where do you keep your booze?
- 352. I don't drink.
- 353. Yeah, shit, yeah.
- 354. Uh...
- 355. Well, do you want a drink?
- 356. She totally blanked you, huh?
- 357. What about her?
- 358. - You know?
- You waiting, love?
- 359. I'll have...
- 360. Triple scotch, please.
- 361. Easy, you still got work to do.
- 362. You want ice with that?
- 363. Do people have it with ice?
- 364. Generally.
- 365. Okay, then.
- 366. Actually, make it two triple scotches.
- 367. - You don't have to get one for me.
- I didn't.
- 368. Right, let's get cracking.
- 369. You see anyone tasty?
- 370. Oh, oh, all right.
You see him? He's perfect.
- 371. Piece of work, that one.
- 372. String of burglaries.
Mostly targets the elderly.
- 373. What do you reckon?
- 374. - No?
- 375. Okay. Uh...
- 376. Ah! You see... you see her with the pints?
- 377. She went on holiday
when she was 12 years old
- 378. and saw her sister drown
in a swimming pool.
- 379. She could've pulled her out,
but she just stood there and watched.
- 380. Fucking hell.
- 381. You could be making this up.
- 382. Ah! Okay, you see him?
- 383. About three years ago, he thought
his wife was cheating on him. So, he—
- 384. Strangled her in the bath.
- 385. Are you familiar with his work?
- 386. Keith Holligan.
- 387. It's funny. It wasn't premeditated,
- 388. but he did have a hard-on
when he did it, so...
- 389. I think we have a contender.
- 390. Well, he can't have got far. Come on.
- 391. Perfect location. Ain't no witnesses.
- 392. You should rush him.
- 393. Now, come on!
- 394. Did you just follow me from the pub?
- 395. You're a dark horse, aren't you?
- 396. I've read about girls like you.
- 397. - I'm just around the corner.
- You know what? Home turf. Even better.
- 398. Come on.
- 399. Not much sense in being shy now.
- 400. Looks like he wipes his arse
with his house.
- 401. Um...
- 402. Do you want to do it here or...
- 403. Um...
- 404. May... maybe bedroom's better?
- 405. - I think the bedroom.
- Bedroom, right.
- 406. Come on.
- 407. Don't be frightened.
- 408. It's almost midnight.
You're cutting it fine.
- 409. - Shut the fuck up, you.
- What was that?
- 410. Can't wait to fuck you.
- 411. Fucking hell.
- 412. Sorry, it's a bit...
- 413. Sorry.
- 414. What are you doing? Just fucking do it.
- 415. Tell you what. You get comfy.
I'll just go have a wash down there first.
- 416. Mm-hmm.
- 417. Won't be a minute.
- 418. Not actually gonna shag him, are you?
- 419. I was... I was just checking.
I was just checking...
- 420. Uh, it is 11:54, six minutes left,
since you asked, so...
- 421. Just fucking come on!
- 422. You're gonna hit me with that.
- 423. Okay, then.
- 424. I always knew something would happen.
- 425. Ever since I did it,
- 426. I've had
- 427. dreams.
- 428. This is what I deserve.
- 429. I honestly did love her.
- 430. I think.
- 431. I wasn't a bad husband. I just—
- 432. Yes!
- 433. Ah, even with four minutes to spare.
- 434. Well, you can't have that lying around.
- 435. Get out before he sees ya.
- 436. Sh.
- 437. Keith?
- 438. Who are you?
- 439. No, no witnesses. He's gotta go.
- 440. - Get out!
- I can't kill another one.
- 441. - Stay there.
- He's seen you. You have to.
- 442. Get out of my house!
- 443. Get away!
- 444. Do it! It's him or you.
- 445. Please, please, please.
Just get out of here.
- 446. Please, please
- 447. I'm so sorry.
- 448. I'm so sorry.
- 449. I'm so sorry.
- 450. Come on, let's go.
- 451. Who was he?
- 452. That'd be Keith's brother, Chris.
- 453. What was he like?
- 454. You know stuff.
- 455. Was he a good person or a bad person?
- 456. He was...
- 457. ordinary.
- 458. I know. I know. I know.
- 459. It's not what you wanna hear,
but, you know...
- 460. what's done is done.
- 461. And on the plus side,
you scored two tonight.
- 462. That one a day is just a minimum,
but two does get you over the line.
- 463. You done it.
- 464. Hey, look.
- 465. See, it, um...
- 466. It...
- 467. Just... just two secs.
- 468. Hi there. Gaap of Misophaes.
- 469. Yeah.
- 470. Yeah, so, uh,
I've got a talisman circa 1926,
- 471. but the rune face just failed to register
one of the sacrifices.
- 472. Yeah, two kills,
but only one's been recorded.
- 473. Right.
- 474. Um, I mean, yeah, but...
- 475. What? We... we—
- 476. What, we can't just—
- 477. No.
- 478. Yeah, yeah. I get it. I get it.
- 479. - Keith didn't count.
- 480. - Why?
- He's a murderer.
- 481. Makes him ineligible.
That's what they're saying.
- 482. But we've been picking people
who deserve it.
- 483. You're not strictly
supposed to do it that way. I just...
- 484. I thought you'd find it easier.
- 485. I mean, the first bloke,
the one by the canal,
- 486. they're giving us that one 'cause
he's never actually killed anybody, but...
- 487. What about what he did to his daughter?
- 488. You said she kills herself at 28,
thanks to him.
- 489. Yeah, but that's in the future.
- 490. I'm sorry.
- 491. Look, basically, anyone
who's already been directly responsible
- 492. for the death of another human being,
- 493. Once that's happened,
as far as my boss is concerned,
- 494. they're playing for the home team.
- 495. You know, we're actually lucky
- 496. that Keith's brother
turned up just before midnight.
- 497. It would've been Armageddon otherwise.
- 498. Look, you did well.
- 499. Oh, absolutely go fuck yourself!
- 500. Right up a tree!
- 501. - This is all right for you.
- It isn't.
- 502. No blood on your hands.
You're just watching.
- 503. Light entertainment.
- 504. If the apocalypse does come,
you'll have a big fun finale.
- 505. - That'd be upending the whole place—
- It's frowned upon. You get told off.
- 506. If I fail my initiation...
- 507. Kicked out of demon school? Boo-hoo.
- 508. - More like cast out.
- 509. Cast out into a boundless, cosmic void.
- 510. And doomed to spend eternity
in a vacuum of infinite nothingness.
- 511. Absence of matter, of time,
of space, light, and sound.
- 512. I would endure a profound, palpable,
- 513. and ever-present lack of existence,
- 514. alone in perpetuity,
- 515. forever more.
- 516. Sounds like my life.
- 517. To be honest, I'm scared.
- 518. So one more victim, then.
- 519. Yeah, only thing for it.
- 520. - I can't be doing a total innocent.
- It's just murderers we have to avoid.
- 521. You mean people like me.
- 522. My whole life,
I never wished harm on anyone.
- 523. I didn't.
- 524. Uh...
- 525. You couldn't have summoned me
for my trial if you hadn't.
- 526. Well, you had to be corruptible,
not beyond corruption.
- 527. You know what? You must have had
some dark force inside you
- 528. when you touched the talisman.
There's no shame in it.
- 529. No, go on. Who pissed you off?
- 530. So I'm thinking just lure her
down to the basement on some pretense,
- 531. clock her on the stairwell,
and say she lost her step and fell.
- 532. Snap out of it.
You can deal with the kid out there.
- 533. Needs black shoes for a funeral.
They pulled her dad out of the canal.
- 534. I'd do it myself,
but she gives me the willies.
- 535. Well, she... she...
she's not in mourning.
- 536. Well, she's... she's not not mourning.
- 537. Happy it's finished. Sad he's dead. It...
- 538. But... it has finished.
- 539. You... you spared her
another five years of it.
- 540. A lifetime of therapy,
- 541. but a lifetime, nonetheless.
- 542. She's a mum at 29. A nan at 57.
- 543. Eh?
- 544. I just thought you'd like to know.
- 545. It's a good fit.
- 546. And, of course, the final touch.
- 547. - Colin, really? You—
- No, no, no, no, no.
- 548. - I insist. Too late.
- Very well.
- 549. Here we are in footwear.
- 550. This is Mr. Michael Smart.
- 551. You probably recognize him.
He's all set to be our next MP.
- 552. Well, with a little luck
and a following wind.
- 553. - His father and I were at school together.
- Fuck me.
- 554. He's been using my weekend cottage
as a base of operations.
- 555. You can tell he's ex-military.
- 556. Michael's got a big speech tonight
at the town hall.
- 557. I promised him a new suit and new shoes.
- 558. The finest that Possetts has to offer.
On the house.
- 559. I've told him
he'll go out of business at this rate.
- 560. Fuck me some more.
- 561. Well, I said I'd leave you in the hands
of our finest assistant, so, um...
- 562. Vicky, if you could take care of Michael.
- 563. Michael, enjoy Vicky's
more than capable hands.
- 564. - Hey, steady on there. Steady on.
- Won't you walk this way?
- 565. I'll walk
however you want.
- 566. For Christ's sake,
there's boxes all over the floor.
- 567. Would you pick up your bloody mess?
- 568. I'm thinking car park later.
- 569. Wait till he comes out. Reverse into him.
- 570. Pin him up against the wall.
- 571. Keep the pedal down
till you hear the stomach pop.
- 572. Eh? What do you think?
- 573. - I won't tell if you don't.
- 574. I hope
I have your vote this week.
- 575. Afraid not. National Front for me.
- 576. Oh!
- 577. Why is that?
- 578. Don't like how things
are changing around here.
- 579. Mm.
- 580. My aunt, she's been in Cheetham 20 years.
- 581. Now she's got them living either side.
- 582. That's what's next.
We've not got a pot to piss in,
- 583. so why should we share with them
who don't belong?
- 584. You think voting National Front will help?
- 585. I think they'll stand up for us.
- 586. Says so
right on the front of their leaflet.
- 587. But they won't get elected.
- 588. - They might.
- They're too overt.
- 589. People feel it's, um,
- 590. bad manners.
- 591. You know why I don't print
- 592. in gigantic letters
on my campaign literature?
- 593. Because look at me.
- 594. Look at me!
- 595. You know what I stand for.
- 596. So,
- 597. do I have your vote?
- 598. Yes, sir.
- 599. Good girl.
- 600. So, who are you gonna kill,
your boss or Vicky? You haven't got long.
- 601. What's his future? Michael Smart?
- 602. - Uh, it—
- Can you show me his future?
- 603. - Yeah, but let's not—
- Then show me right now.
- 604. Or I'll run out there,
confess to everything,
- 605. and then it's over,
and then you're fucked.
- 606. Show me.
- 607. 16,472 votes.
- 608. Not just different,
- 609. expelled from the Tories,
- 610. Michael Smart launched
his new Britannia party.
- 611. The rivers of blood are here!
- 612. Reclaim your power.
- 613. The land is ours.
- 614. In a shock victory,
Britain has a new prime minister.
- 615. Fifth columnist traitors.
- 616. I've seen what's coming.
- 617. Rising seas, burning sky.
- 618. We are at war.
- 619. He's fucking Satan.
- 620. No, he's not one of ours,
- 621. I mean, they do like him.
They're fans of his work, you might say.
- 622. He's got to go.
- 623. - He's next.
- Oh, uh, they are not gonna like that.
- 624. Just avoid murderers.
You said that was the one rule.
- 625. Right, but he's responsible
for an impressive number of juicy deaths—
- 626. Not yet he isn't.
- 627. Right, but he... he... he beats his wife.
- 628. - Hasn't killed her, though, has he?
- I mean...
- 629. I mean, he killed a dog
with a rock when he was 12.
- 630. Animals don't count.
That was one of the first things you said.
- 631. - Does Michael Smart qualify or not?
- Well, technically, yeah, but—
- 632. Then I choose Michael Smart.
He's the one. That's that.
- 633. Honestly, they are not gonna like it.
- 634. But it's within the rules,
so they can lump it.
- 635. It's him
- 636. or no one.
- 637. I mean it.
- 638. Do you want to fail your initiation, hm?
- 639. He wants to try an 11.
- 640. Hurry up. It's gone closing time.
- 641. Stool's there. Do it yourself.
- 642. Uh...
- 643. You've changed.
- 644. No sign of forced entry.
- 645. - Could've been a fight between 'em.
- Well, one hell of a fight.
- 646. Well, we know
Keith was no angel, for sure.
- 647. Hmm.
- 648. Did any of our lot turn that on?
- 649. I don't think so.
- 650. Keith Holligan?
Aye, he were in last night.
- 651. He's in most nights.
- 652. Anything unusual about him?
- 653. Well, he killed his wife.
- 654. I mean, last night.
Was he behaving differently?
- 655. Just his usual self,
such as he is.
- 656. Sat on his perch dragging his pints out.
Left around closing time.
- 657. - Anyone follow him out?
- Not that I saw.
- 658. Well, thanks for your time, Bob.
- 659. There were one thing last night.
I mean, she didn't speak to Keith.
- 660. - Who didn't speak to Keith?
- This Indian lass. Never been in before.
- 661. Drank two triple scotches by herself.
- 662. We don't get many of 'em in here,
let alone ordering whiskey.
- 663. - Can you describe her?
- Yeah, Indian.
- 664. You mentioned that.
- 665. That's all that stood out.
Bit shorter than you, maybe.
- 666. Julie, did you see her?
- 667. Sat over there.
- 668. - Saw her talking to herself.
- Talking to herself?
- 669. Sort of muttering.
- 670. Seen her in town.
- 671. Works in shoes at Possetts.
- 672. Cheers, Bob.
- 673. After Smart's finished his speech
at the Town Hall,
- 674. he's got to head for the cottage,
which is here.
- 675. So whichever way he goes,
he's out in the country.
- 676. So I'm thinking I wait outside the hall
in the car. I follow him along the—
- 677. - What if he's not alone?
- Is he gonna be alone? You tell me.
- 678. - Well, yeah, but—
- Well, then all I have to do is—
- 679. Some people, eh?
- 680. I'm gonna paint over it.
- 681. Nida Huq?
- 682. Len Fisher, Tipley Police.
I'm just making some routine inquiries.
- 683. Do you mind if I have a word?
- 684. Yeah, sure.
- 685. I mean, yes.
- 686. Inside?
- 687. Invite him in, and then kill him.
- 688. Yeah.
- 689. - Would you like a cup of tea?
- Oh, no need. I won't keep you.
- 690. Well, like I say, it's just routine.
- 691. Okay.
- 692. Were you in the pub last night?
The Three Crowns?
- 693. Yeah, I was.
- 694. Regular, are you?
- 695. - I wouldn't say that.
- How often are you in there?
- 696. To be honest,
last night was the first time.
- 697. First time.
- 698. God, it's just...
it's just around the corner, isn't it?
- 699. Well, I don't drink. Not usually.
- 700. But you did last night.
- 701. Yesterday was Mum's birthday.
- 702. She's not with us anymore.
- 703. You know, it's not...
- 704. Not easy.
- 705. No.
- 706. And I'm not meant to drink.
- 707. I don't have it in the house
or anything, but...
- 708. I'm not proud of myself.
- 709. I'm not here to judge.
- 710. We all need to let off steam
every now and then.
- 711. Thank you.
- 712. What's all this about anyway?
- 713. Well, you've probably heard
about Keith and Chris Holligan.
- 714. - Who?
- The Holligans. Keith and Chris.
- 715. I've not heard of them, I'm afraid.
- 716. Well, Keith was actually
in the Three Crowns last night.
- 717. Did you see him?
- 718. Maybe.
- 719. I wouldn't know him.
- 720. Well, I only ask because...
- 721. Looks like you served him at work
a few days ago.
- 722. Did I?
- 723. Those are your initials,
- 724. Must have served him, then.
- 725. We get so many in the door.
- 726. To be honest, by the end of the day,
I hardly recognize myself.
- 727. So, you didn't see him?
- 728. I certainly didn't notice him.
- 729. So sorry I wasn't more help.
- 730. Well, if anything does come to you,
please let us know.
- 731. Well, you're a total fucking liar,
- 732. I'm impressed.
- 733. - He didn't buy it though.
- Best hurry, then.
- 734. Smart will be finishing his speech.
- 735. That cop is following us.
- 736. It really would be an easy kill.
- 737. He was gonna have a heart attack
next year anyway.
- 738. It's not like he has any family.
No one's gonna miss him.
- 739. And together with the threat to freedom,
there is a sense of helplessness.
- 740. A sense that our once great nation
- 741. has fallen behind, lost its way,
- 742. lost its identity.
- 743. But it is not too late,
- 744. and we are not helpless.
- 745. This election may decide our fate.
- 746. Well, that fate is ours to decide.
- 747. So don't just hope for a better future.
- 748. Vote for one!
- 749. Fantastic. Fantastic.
Great night. Thank you.
- 750. Oh, thank Karen for the quiche.
- 751. - Hey, great speech. Good luck.
- Oh. Thank you.
- 752. - I've got a good feeling about this.
- I... I do hope so.
- 753. Well, uh, off for my beauty sleep.
- 754. Oh, of course, yeah.
- 755. The bloody hell you up to, love?
- 756. Bollocks.
- 757. - It's not too late to find someone else.
- Oh, shut up!
- 758. I'm just saying it'd be much easier
for me if you found someone else—
- 759. If you're not gonna help, then piss off.
- 760. I mean it.
- 761. Fine.
- 762. God's teeth!
- 763. Shit.
- 764. What the bloody hell
are you doing?
- 765. Come on. Help me, then.
- 766. Please.
- 767. Please.
- 768. Police!
- 769. Stop!
- 770. I said stop!
- 771. Bloody animal.
She's trying to bloody kill me.
- 772. Put it down.
- 773. I have to do it.
- 774. It's not right.
- 775. You know it's not.
- 776. Are you a good man?
- 777. I don't know, love.
- 778. I hope so.
- 779. Put it down.
- 780. Love...
- 781. Put it down.
- 782. If I don't do this by midnight,
- 783. there'll be war.
- 784. Fire...
- 785. Fire everywhere.
- 786. Well...
- 787. we'll deal with that if it comes to it.
- 788. Put it down.
- 789. I can't.
- 790. Gaap, I'm sorry.
- 791. Gaap!
- 792. - Come here.
- I'm sorry.
- 793. No, no, no.
- 794. I'm so sorry.
- 795. It's okay.
- 796. It's okay.
- 797. Nida?
- 798. Nida?
- 799. You're saying you were only targeting
people who've done something wrong?
- 800. Mm-hmm.
- 801. Um...
- 802. except that man, um, Chris.
- 803. He just turned up.
- 804. And each time you sacrificed someone,
it got registered on the talisman?
- 805. Is that right?
- 806. But they said Keith didn't count.
- 807. Which wasn't fair.
- 808. This was in your jacket pocket.
- 809. This is a talisman, yeah?
- 810. It's gone normal now.
- 811. Before, it...
- 812. before, it had shapes on it that sort of
changed when you looked at it.
- 813. And the demon who told you to do all this,
- 814. he first spoke to you
through that talisman?
- 815. Just for a moment.
I could only hear him to start with.
- 816. - Then he was actually in the room.
- What did he look like?
- 817. Like a monster at first.
- 818. Then he turned into the man from Boney M.
- 819. The man from Boney M?
- 820. Who does the dancing?
- 821. Okay.
- 822. - So, the man from Boney M tells you—
- His name's Gaap.
- 823. Sorry, Gaap tells you
there'll be a nuclear war
- 824. if you don't kill three people
before May Day.
- 825. He didn't just tell me.
- 826. He showed me what it'd be like.
- 827. I felt the flames.
- 828. I smelled people burning.
- 829. Not long now.
- 830. I tried to stop it.
- 831. Honest, I did.
- 832. Her mind's gone, that's for sure.
- 833. Certainly what the lawyer will say.
- 834. Am I mad to feel sorry for her?
- 835. Suz, there's three men dead.
- 836. So, no matter how much sympathy you might
muster for her personal situation,
- 837. there's families mourning.
- 838. You hear that?
- 839. Nida?
- 840. Evening, all.
- 841. I failed.
- 842. Yeah, well, me too, so that's that.
- 843. Just got word.
They are casting me out. Eternal oblivion.
- 844. I'm so sorry.
- 845. Do you wanna come with me?
- 846. What?
- 847. That's where I've been,
checking the small print.
- 848. The rules don't cover it.
- 849. There's another loophole, apparently.
- 850. They don't say anything
about a human companion.
- 851. So, I mean, you could come with.
- 852. Into eternal oblivion?
- 853. Oh no, it's much worse than that.
- 854. It's with me.
- 855. I'll give it a go.
- 856. Jesus Christ, they've done it.
