Hidden/Craith (2018) s01e07 Episode Script

Episode 7

I'm here to see Endaf Elwy.
The evidence was compelling.
But we might have made a mistake.
Does the name William Parry mean anything to you? I don't know.
It wasn't me.
I didn't do it.
I didn't touch her.
Someone else did and I got the blame.
I have some work to do at home.
I'd appreciate some help on Monday.
Are you available? - Yes, alright.
My son owns you now.
If you keep him happy, nothing will happen to you.
Megan Ruddock was reported missing last night.
I don't need to explain my concern.
She hid it for a while.
She hid the self-harm or whatever you want to call it.
The school let us know.
We dealt with it.
We took her to one of these child psychologists.
If you ask me, she wanted attention.
I thought she'd grow out of it.
There was always something.
Some problem, some pain.
It was like this world was too hard for her.
Everything was a struggle.
I did everything I could.
I just wanted her to be happy.
Have you been in touch with Megan's father, Miss Reed? Of course.
He's catching the first flight back.
He works abroad.
He hasn't seen Megan in three years.
Has Megan ever mentioned meeting up with a man? A man? No, what man? What aren't you telling me? We have reason to believe that Megan's been kidnapped.
I don't understand.
What the hell is going on? We have another case.
Another case? A young girl was found in the river.
No, you're wrong.
I don't believe this.
Megan's run away, that's all.
- I'm sorry.
We're doing everything we can to find her.
The red pickup truck driven by Lowri Driscoll's attacker.
The same vehicle was seen in the Penrhos area when Megan Ruddock disappeared.
The truck was bought in 2011 by someone using the name William Parry.
We think the same man worked for Bryn Roberts under a different name.
Roberts Reclamation.
So, Endaf Elwy worked there before his arrest.
We think our man might have been questioned in 2005 As part of the original Anna Williams investigation.
We're looking through the files and compiling a list now.
Where does William Parry fit in? Whoever's using his name knows he died in 1998.
Do we think a school friend? Maybe, or a local person.
We know he went to school in the Llanrug area.
We're checking with the school and with William Parry's family.
The school is here.
It's five miles from where Mali Pryce disappeared in 2011.
It's ten miles from where Llinos Evans disappeared in 2007.
It's fifteen miles from where Anna Williams' body was found in 2005.
Okay.
Let's not disclose anything to anyone at this point.
Not until we're 100% certain of our facts.
Let's go back to Bryn Roberts.
Let's see if we can find out more about the men who worked there when Anna Williams died.
Bryn Roberts wasn't very cooperative last time we called.
We have to try.
It's not a bad place to work.
To think of all those years I wasted in the bloody city.
You probably don't see things the same way.
You were born and raised here.
You're used to it.
A view doesn't pay the bills.
No, maybe not.
For how long did you work at the quarry? Six years.
Something else will come along.
It's the nature of things.
Although it never feels that way.
Where were you before Carn Ddu? A scrap yard.
Reclamation.
It wasn't regular work.
That's why I took the quarry job.
I'd rather work with wood than rocks.
Living things feel warmer.
I like an ugly tree.
A tree full of scars and knots.
A tree that looks almost dead.
Something you can give a new life to.
Transform it into something new.
Something beautiful.
We'd better carry on.
This trailer won't empty itself.
What do they want now? Don't you have anything better to do with your time? Endaf Elwy.
What about him? - He worked for you in 2005.
Yes, I know.
I told you.
Mr Roberts, we have a few questions to ask, that's all.
Questions about Endaf? That thing with his niece happened years ago.
What do you want? We suspect a link between the deaths of Anna Williams and Mali Pryce.
The girl you found a week ago in Pantwern? How can Endaf be linked? He's been locked up for 15 years.
That's what we're trying to find out, Mr Roberts.
We understand Anna used to meet her uncle from work sometimes.
So? So, do you remember any of the men here showing an interest in her? She was a pretty girl.
If you bring a girl like that to a place like this, boys will be boys.
That's why I never employ girls.
They draw too much attention.
- Anna Williams was murdered, Mr Roberts.
She wasn't part of some innocent game.
She was strangled, stripped naked and left in a ditch.
I was only saying.
- What are you saying? This is my business and I'll run it how I want to.
If Endaf hadn't paraded his niece around here she might still be alive.
Now, I've got a business to run.
If you've been wrong about Endaf for all these years don't expect me to clean up your mess.
I've got my own problems.
I can see that, Mr Roberts.
What a genial old man.
How many times do I have to tell you not to skulk around like that? I've had enough of it.
Get out.
Stay out there.
Hey.
Hey.
Hello? Are you there? What's your name? My name's Megan.
I like your jumper, the colours, the pattern.
It's nice.
I saw you on the swing just now.
It looked like fun.
If you open this door, perhaps we can play together.
Would you like that? Can you see a key? Please, can you let me out? Have you found something? Can you see the key? Please.
Please, can you let me out? Sorry, I can't.
Dad? - I'll see you up in the office.
Why are you here? Is everything okay? Everything is fine.
I'm fine.
How did you get here? I'm not an invalid, Cad, I can find my own way about.
Okay.
So, what's up? Here you go.
- Oh, thanks.
This place has changed since I was last here.
Everything looks so new.
The coffee's still terrible.
Why are you here, Dad? Endaf Elwy.
- I knew it.
If I made a mistake.
, if I took an innocent man's freedom Dad, stop.
- No, please.
Just, listen to me.
You have to listen to me.
This isn't about me.
It isn't about you either.
It's about the work we do.
The vows we make.
The things we see.
I remember standing there looking down at her.
Anna Williams.
She was so young.
All that dark hair and white skin in the dirt.
She was someone's child.
Someone's daughter.
That's where she was.
She had her whole life ahead of her.
Naked, she'd been thrown in the dirt as if she was worthless.
I had a responsibility to find the man who did that to her.
A responsibility to make him pay.
But I didn't.
I failed.
I got it wrong, Cad.
It needs to be put right.
Please? You must do this for me.
Because I don't have much time left.
I'll sort it.
I promise to put it right.
Now, please, go home.
Before Elen finds out you disappeared and comes after both of us.
Are you alright? What do we have? It's your choice.
Statements from 2005.
We have names and addresses for the lads from Bryn Roberts' yard around the time Endaf Elwy was arrested.
William Parry's fellow pupils between 1990-1998 and names and addresses of men between the ages of 35-45 all living in the same area.
The list is in alphabetical order.
Alys is making calls.
She's doing names from M to Z.
These are A to L.
Okay.
If anyone asks, I'm on the phone.
Hello, Mr Anthony? My name is Detective Inspector John.
Yes.
No, no.
Do you have time to answer a few questions? This is for you.
I thought you might like it.
Have you read it? Once.
I read it when I was at school.
I don't mind reading it again.
It's a good story.
Thanks.
I didn't go to school much.
Nobody cared if I was there or not.
Nobody noticed me.
You understand what that's like, don't you? Not being seen.
Nobody noticing you.
I hated school.
I used to get there on the bus.
When I'd get to the school gates I'd run away.
I'd go and sit somewhere far away from everyone.
Was your mother Didn't she find out you were missing school? I refused to go one day.
I refused to get up from bed.
I remember lying in bed.
Mam came in.
She was shouting.
She poured boiling water from the kettle all over me.
My skin burnt and stuck to my clothes.
She said she needed to teach me a lesson.
To teach me to listen.
I lay there for days.
I don't remember much more.
Only the pain.
Wasn't there anyone you could talk to about what was happening to you at home? A teacher or a school friend? Mam used to tell me not to trust anyone.
She was right.
I didn't want friends.
I didn't like the other kids at school.
And they didn't like me.
I remember one boy at school his name was Will.
Will Parry.
All the girls liked him.
The way everyone looked at him and treated him as if he was someone special.
After leaving school, I saw in the paper that he'd died.
I was glad he was dead.
Because it was my turn afterwards.
To feel special.
To feel better than him.
Because I was still alive.
I was still here.
No.
No.
Stop.
No, don't.
No.
Don't.
Leave me alone.
No.
Leave me alone.
Nobody knows you're down here.
Remember that.
If I wanted to, I could lock that door and leave you here to rot.
Is that what you did to that little girl's mother? Did you lock her in here? Did you leave her here to die too? Shut your mouth.
What do you think will happen when she finds out who you are and the awful things you've done? - Shut your mouth, you fucking bitch.
You owe me your life.
All I have to do is walk away and not come back.
Do it.
Do it.
Do it.
I'd rather die than live like this.
Give it a few days and you'll want to see me.
You make me sick.
What do you think he wants? This guy.
Why is he doing this? Why does he take these girls and keep them? Sex? No, I think he wants more than just sex.
Like what? I think he's looking for something.
A relationship maybe? There are easier ways.
I went out with this guy once.
He was needy.
He was clingy and insecure.
He wanted to talk about his feelings all the time.
He wanted to know how I felt about him.
It was as if he was in love with the idea of being in love.
That didn't last.
Really? What a shock.
A few months after we broke up, I was out with friends.
I saw him on my way back to the barracks.
He was with another girl.
She wasn't exactly me but she was very similar to me.
The same type, you know? Short and blonde with a fag in her mouth? Something like that.
So, maybe, Llinos, Mali, Lowri, Megan, maybe he sees them as the same girl.
In his head, they're all the same.
If something happens to one He gets another one.
Yeah.
He needs them.
It's all he has in the world.
That's why he tried to replace Mali after she died.
You're home.
What happened? Nothing.
Did she do that to you? The dogs need to be fed.
I warned you, didn't I? I told you she'd be trouble.
Look at what she did to your face.
You never listen.
I don't want to talk about it.
I know you don't.
You never want to talk to me about anything.
The only ones you want to talk to are those whores you drag home.
You're asking for it, aren't you? Opening your heart up to them.
You tell them everything.
Do you think they're interested in you? They're not.
They hate you.
They all hate you.
Do you want to talk? OK, let's talk about how you poured boiling water over me because I didn't want to go to school? Or how you beat me because I made too much noise or wanted food or looked at you the wrong way.
You needed discipline.
Discipline? I was scared of you.
I've always been scared of you.
Do you think it was easy being left alone with you? You're not right.
You're not normal.
You lock all these girls up.
You push yourself on them like some animal.
I've accepted it over all these years.
I've helped you, I hid things.
I've hid what you are.
A dirty little coward.
What does that make you? You've known about this all these years.
You could have stopped it at any time.
You didn't.
It's too late now.
We're both going to hell.
You're a big man now.
A big fucking man.
What did you say? You heard me, mate.
"Home with Dad.
He's fine.
Els is on the warpath.
" Ma'am? Is everything alright? Yes and no.
I was on house-to-house on Friday with PC Davies.
I don't know if anyone's processed the forms yet.
There was a man.
He lived with his mother and daughter.
Okay.
I don't know but there was something about him.
Something about him? It's just a feeling I had about him.
He was just a bit odd.
In what way? I don't know.
Sorry.
Did PC Davies agree? I think it was just me who felt it.
It's been on my mind.
I understand.
Sorry.
It's fine.
No problem.
I'll look into it.
Thanks.
Mari, what was his name? Harris, Dylan Harris.
PC James.
Alys, I need Friday's house-to-house forms now.
The 2005 scrap yard statements.
Look for the name Dylan Harris.

I have him.
Me, too.
William Parry's class 1998.
I'm sure I saw the name.
Dylan Harris.
He's our man.
What's going on? You have to get rid of her.
She's no use to you.
They're all the same.
They're all fooling you.
And they leave you the first chance they get.
Six years of that.
Six years of worrying.
Six years of looking over my shoulder.
Six years of waiting for the police.
What did you do? You let her run away.
Nia? Which way? Come with me.
Come with me.
I'll look after you.
Nia.
Stay here.
Stop it.
Look at you now.
The big man on the estate.
Mali fucking hated you.
Did you know that? That's why she fucked me.
She did it to spite you.
- Stop it.
Look at her.
She's got more fight in her than he has.
She came over to my house the other day all dressed up.
She wanted a fuck.
I'm not interested in her.
She's not my type.
Megan.
I'm not going to hurt you.
You'll be safe.
I just want to look after you.
I want to take you home.
Megan.
Stop.
You can't stay here.
Throw away these clothes and wash yourself.
Don't tell anyone.
Now.
Now.
This is all my fault.
Now go.
Go.
Now.
