The Guilty (2013) s01e01 Episode Script

Episode 1

1 Bring it with you.
The pipe cuts right across the corner.
Bloke said there was a boggy patch.
You've reached the Find Callum campaign line.
Please leave your name, number and a message and someone will call you back.
Alternatively you can contact us via the website findcallum.
' Hi there.
Malcolm's really sorry.
His other meeting overran, but he's on his way now.
Can I get you a coffee or something while you wait? Can I have a glass of water? Sure.
No problem.
Are you OK? Yeah.
Yeah, I'm fine.
Whoo There you go.
Don't tell her we ate them in the car.
If you dig too close, you'll damage the roots.
We've got to follow the line of the pipe, mate.
No doubt about that.
Jesus! Whoa! All right, Sammy boy? I'm going on Mike's narrowboat.
He's going to let me drive it! Is that right? Can I wear these? Go for it.
Hiya! Hi.
Did Mum ring? Didn't hear the phone.
At least I don't think I did.
Is everything OK? Yeah, he's fine.
Didn't make a big thing of it.
End of an era, though.
Leaving nursery.
They've had them settling in for weeks.
He's more than ready.
Just don't let me forget to label his sweatshirt.
Ah, you doing chilli? Magic! Mum won't like it.
So long as you bought vodka, she'll cope.
There you go.
We're erm, we're coming up on the fifth anniversary, right? Yeah, that's right.
Yeah, we want to remind people that Callum's still out there.
And he was four when he went missing? Yes.
He'll be nine now.
And you basically got up one morning and found him gone? Yes.
Well, he'd got out before, um, he'd never gone further than the garden, though, so at first we thought he was just playing a game, hiding somewhere.
And then the police found his scooter, which is when we knew that he'd been taken.
And after all this time, you still have no idea where he is or what happened to him? I can't imagine how you live with that.
Well, wekeep going, we have to.
Some days are worse than others, of course, but we have to stay strong for Callum.
And for Luke.
He's our other son.
He's 11 now, so we try to make life as normal as we can for him.
Someone somewhere knows where Callum is.
We just need them to help us bring him home.
So erm Sorry.
No problem.
Um, we'll then run over the new phase of the campaign We will make the appeal to the public as we discussed Daniel? And if there's anything you want to add, then that might be the most appropriate moment to do it.
Is everything OK? Cheers.
All shipshape, are we, Admiral? Shipshape, Bristol fashion! Good! Hello! Hiya, Lynn.
Hi, love.
How you doing? Oh, well, you know.
Now, then, where's my grown-up grandson? Look what Granny's got for you.
It's green! There's a flask inside.
I'm playing with my boats.
Well, that told me! He's not having packed lunches, Mum.
Isn't he? Drink, Lynn? Only if you're having one.
Whatever it is, call McInley.
Yeah, well, tell him to take a Lemsip and man up.
There you go.
Who called it in? And who's down there? And they're sure? Yeah, OK, I'll meet him there.
They reckon it's definitely a child.
Uniform set up their perimeter, but I can have them move it back - It's fine.
Yes, ma'am.
Hi, Mike.
I've got skeletonised remains, been here more than a year, less than a decade.
What do you think? The age seems right.
Morning, Luke.
It's a lovely day.
Hope it stays like this for the barbecue.
We don't want soggy sausages, do we? Oh, hey, Nina.
Is Callum still asleep? Nina? Um, I thought he was in with you.
Oh, God.
Not again.
Daniel! Callum! Daniel, I'll go this way.
Callum! Callum! Callum! Callum! Callum! Callum! Callum! Callum! Come on now, Callum! Callum! Claire! Callum Hey.
Out, now! Hey.
Come on.
I'm on a recon mission.
I don't care about a recon mission, Callum.
Oh! Darling! You must never, never go out on your own.
Are you listening to me? Mummy was so scared, baby.
You have to remember to keep the bolt on I did.
How many times have we said this to you? The workmen have pushed off, but I got names and details off the foreman.
Who called them in? Who? The workmen.
Um, I'll get on it.
This is big, isn't it? Well, I mean, if this is what we think it is, then Are you going to talk to them? I can't ignore them.
Well, we don't know anything for sure yet.
Then that's what I'll tell them.
Yeah, that's no problem.
Oh Yeah, you too, Angie.
All right, bye-bye.
Right Hey, where are the boys? They're outside, playing with Daniel.
Right, well, I'd say it's nearly bath time.
Perhaps you could call them to come in.
Yeah? Hiya, Felix, are you there? I thought you were going to help the guys with the garden? No, thanks.
Well, maybe you could nip out and pick up some milk? Go on.
Don't want you turning into a vampire.
Fairly unlikely, Mother.
You never know.
He was meant to call me back yesterday, so either he calls me today or Luke! Callum! Luke! Callum! Come in now, please.
Seizing up there, Frank? I'm as limber as ever, don't you worry.
You'd better be.
Lots to do before tomorrow.
We'll be ready, we always are.
Oi! Come on.
Subtle as a brick, that one.
So we're not really in a position to commit to anything.
But you think it's him? I think you should prepare yourselves.
But they searched the garden so many times.
They even had dogs.
We don't know anything for certainyet, but I promise, as soon as we do OK.
Thank you.
We'll be in touch.
You were here, weren't you? The first day.
You were pregnant.
What did you have? A boy.
Hello? Hi.
Ilse said you needed some more dishes.
Ah, fantastic.
Yeah, just put them there.
Thank you.
I'm on marinades for my sins.
I got dips, I think she's easing me in.
Hey, do you want a glass of wine? Yeah, yeah, go on.
Sohow's the work going? Looks like you guys have been busy.
Yeah, it's a little slower than we thought.
Yeah, tell me about it.
When we bought this place, Daniel wanted to knock it down and start over.
That was three years ago.
He still hasn't put in a downstairs loo.
Still, that's what you get for marrying a bloody architect.
Straight in, straight up! Oh, hello! Where's Nina? Didn't see her.
Oh, for God's sake.
Come on.
Straight up.
I'll follow you up.
I'll do the bath.
Need to clean up anyway.
Ah, thank you, love.
Our nanny's found herself a boyfriend.
Total disaster.
But Jason What do you mean, you couldn't find it? But Jason, I looked! I told you I needed it by today.
I know, but she's always in the house.
I'll try when they're sleeping.
You'd better.
What about the other stuff? Show me, then.
Jason Come on.
Not here.
I need to know you're doing as you're told.
Good girl.
And what are you going to wear tomorrow? Nothing.
Don't forget.
Then the one with the laser beams in his eyes blew it all up and we all got hit with radioactivity waves It all sounds a bit frightening.
No, it's cool, I want to watch it again tomorrow.
Well, we'll see.
I'm not tired.
Ooh, well, then, you just lie there for a little bit, yeah? Night night, my lovely.
'The dusk advanced on them steadily, rapidly, and the light seemed to be draining away like flood water.
Then the faces began.
' Not you.
Just Daddy.
Well, sleep well, sweetheart.
No bad dreams tonight, yeah? Go on.
'The faces began' 'It was over his shoulder, and indistinctly, that he first thought he saw a face, a little evil wedge-shaped face looking out at him from a hole.
And when he turned and confronted it, the thing had vanished' Not again.
His inhaler.
I'll go.
Go back to sleep.
Daddy! Don't let him wake Callum.
Ssh ssh ssh.
Ssh ssh.
I don't know what to tell him.
There's nothing to tell.
You heard what they said.
I'd know if he was dead.
Claire Just don't.
OK? Don't.
Do we know yet? Not yet.
But it's got to be him, hasn't it? How many dead kids do you get in one street? You know what I mean.
Why is it so cold? Air conditioning won't go off.
They say they'll be able to give us an official ID by lunchtime.
So till then we sit with our thumbs up our arses? You could do that if you want to, Ron, or we assume it's Callum and look at the original investigation.
I don't need to read about it.
I lived it.
He called you in yet? Huh He will.
He'll wanna make sure it's HIS face in front of the cameras.
Until it all goes tits up.
And then the whole shitstorm's gonna start again.
So why weren't you on this the first time round, ma'am? First six months I was throwing up, the next six I was being thrown up on.
Maternity leave.
When I came back, they'd scaled the team right down.
So you missed out, then? Um, well, I didn't, erm I mean, you didn't.
Well, I'm sure it was worth it.
Most days.
You won't need that.
Tooth eruption places the age between four and six.
And there is a break in the left ulna.
Callum broke his arm a couple of months before he disappeared.
I've asked the forensic anthropologist to take a look, to confirm the DNA match and so on, but it'll just be a formality.
Do you know how he died? Well, there's nothing very conclusive.
Um, the only visible injuries are several broken ribs, which could have occurred peri or shortly post mortem.
So he was beaten? Or someone may have tried to resuscitate him.
Which could indicate asphyxiation or strangulation.
How long has he been dead? I can't say for sure.
There's very little new bone growth around the break in the arm.
I'd say he died not long after he went missing.
Did they get anything from the box? Nothing so far.
It's only a standard wooden packing crate.
We're still looking.
They may have more luck with the blankets.
Blankets? There was a blanket wrapped around him.
And there was another one folded under his head.
Someone had taken a lot of care.
Stranger abductions, you expect a shallow grave somewhere unconnected to the victim.
Maybe it was remorse.
Wanting to return him to his family.
That's it.
It needs to be level with the other end, Sean.
You lads know what you're doing.
Pissing thing.
Don't let it beat you, Joe.
Drinks for the workers.
Ah, Teresa! Wonderful woman.
You're a lucky man, Joe.
I could get used to this.
Not bad, is it? I'll er, I'll just leave this here for you, then.
You're not getting that back! What? I saw you! All gone.
Is Frank driving them crazy? No, not at all.
Is there anything else? No that's fine.
All right.
See you.
See you later.
Where do you want this? Oh, thanks, love.
I just couldn't carry everything.
Ooh, do you think you could - See what you've got to look forward to? You know it's gone midday? Then get it open! Got a problem there, Luke? No.
No, it's fine.
Are you boys coming to the barbecue tonight? Course.
I'll show you something if you like.
What is it? You'll have to wait and see.
But don't tell anyone, yeah? Here we are.
So, how's it going? Well, I'm still the wicked stepmother, so there's no change there.
Is he still having bad dreams? But Dan will not go back to the psychologist.
I thought it helped? It did a bit, but He just said the boy lost his mum when he was two and no amount of talking's going to fix that.
Oh, love.
I feel like he blames me.
If we'd taken things a bit slower, if I hadn't got pregnant You wouldn't have Callum.
Daniel wouldn't change that! No.
I know.
I know.
So anyway, how about you, could tonight be the night? Oh, stop! Wait for me! Whoa! Whoa, where do you think you're going? I said you'd take them with you.
To get the duckboards? We need to try and calm them down a bit.
Still don't know why we need them, Not like anyone's going to be dancing.
Frank's got something planned.
All right, who's feeling strong, then? Any big strong helpers? Me! Best worker gets ice cream.
Oh! Ice cream! Can I have one with a flake? With a flake? A flake, you say? Come on, then.
Come on.
Come on, let's go.
Claire, Daniel, I promised I'd keep you up to speed with developments.
We've just been with the pathologist and although we are awaiting final confirmation .
there does seem to be very little doubt.
I'm so sorry.
So were there other injuries? (Claire) Can they tell if he was restrained? Or tortured? (Claire, for God's sake.
) No.
The only visible injuries were the broken ribs.
What about sexual abuse? I'm sorry, excuse me.
Please! There were no signs he'd been abused.
Because I want to know everything.
I SHOULD know everything.
I won't pretend it's not a poisoned chalice.
No, sir.
Phil Anderton's mistakes cast a long shadow.
But I'll be running interference with the press as much as possible.
Thank you, sir.
At least we won't have to deal with him suddenly emerging from retirement.
Not that I'd wish a heart attack on anyone.
But if you decide that you want to distance yourself from the original investigation in terms of manpower I think we need all the bodies we can get, sir.
Just remember, this is your case.
Everything else is irrelevant.
I get it.
We're doing it by the book.
Back to the beginning.
Start with the parents.
That's right.
Anderton was right all along.
That stranger abduction crap the brass got hung up on was a dead end.
Byrne knew we were closing in, he realised we'd find the body, so he moved it.
Anderton said he'd dumped him in the river.
Either way, it still fits with attempted kidnapping.
He used the nanny as an in.
Callum fought back, Byrne tried to shut him up.
It's one theory.
It's more than a theory.
Just cos he's dead doesn't mean we were wrong.
We'll see.
And so it begins.
Hey, Mummy, I had ice cream with three scoops! I had one with a flake! So I can see.
Come on, let's go.
Wash up.
I don't need a bath, Dad! Double time! Did you get the boards OK? Yeah, no problem.
The boys need clean clothes, yes? Oh, yes, please, Nina.
Thank you.
I er, I said she could invite the boyfriend to the barbecue.
Fair enough.
That's nice.
I like you in red.
Thank you.
Should be fun tonight.
Yeah, should be.
Just, um, go easy, though, yeah? Let's not have a repeat of last year.
Teresa? Is that you? Hi! How's it going? All right.
Where've you been? Shopping.
You didn't buy anything? Come on, Joe.
What? Seriously? Is this how it's going to be every time I go out, I'm fucking someone else? I didn't mean that.
So much for our big new start.
SCOUTING FOR GIRLS: She's So Lovely I approve.
I'm so out of practice, though.
You look fantastic.
Here you are.
Dutch courage.
Dutch courage.
There's nothing wrong with that.
They're too far from the heat.
When I was on the festival circuit Telling you how he burnt his nut cutlets at Woodstock, is he? It was Glastonbury, and I've never burnt a nut cutlet, you cheeky sod! THE TING TINGS: That's Not My Name I miss the catch if they throw me the ball I'm the last chick standing up against the wall Keep up, falling, these heels they keep me boring Getting glammed up and sitting on the fence now OK, guys, who wants to watch a film at my house? Me! I do! I do! I do! Baby-sitting duty.
Just go with Felix, OK? Naughty boy! AMY WINEHOUSE: Valerie Cos since I've come on home, my body's been a mess And I miss your ginger hair I think I go home.
I have a headache.
Aw! All right, then.
There's some painkillers in the bathroom if you need them.
Ooh, I guess the boyfriend didn't show.
They're quite striking, aren't they? Yeah.
So what's that, then? Some sort of Celtic symbol? The never-ending cycle of life and death.
Ooh, right.
So, is it painful? Yeah.
Come here.
Come on.
A dance.
No, I'm OK.
Seriously, I'm fine.
I don't want to dance.
I don't want to dance.
For God's sake! Go and get another drink or something.
All right, ladies and gents! Listen up, everybody.
I thought it was time you should have some real music.
Ah, look at Frank.
Great stuff! I'm going, I'm going, I'm going! Come on, come on! No.
No! Please! Let's leave it to them, people who know what they're doing! What about your promise? It's all in the eyes, you see.
I know, look at them.
Oh, come on.
Just the once dance! Do us a favour, will you hold that for us? I'll see you in a minute.
So, what do you reckon? Fancy a dance? Oh, no.
Go on.
And the other.
Oh, no, no, no.
I'm just gonna go and see Ruth.
His loss.
Yeah, he looks devastated.
And the legs.
Ooh! Get off! Hey! Hey! If you touch her again, Joe It's OK.
Daniel, let go, it's OK.
Are you OK? Are you OK? Yeah, I'm fine.
Thank you.
Claire, take the boys home.
What? Take the boys home! Fuck off.
YOU take them home! Come on.
Go on.
Nina, can you put the boys to bed? Nina! The party's over? Get upstairs, both of you! 'The nanny never puts the bolt on.
I kept meaning to change the lock, butI was just' 'The night of the party, you were there! Yeah, I was in the house.
And? I went to see my girlfriend.
But I never even saw the kid.
I'm not a paedo.
Just let me ring my mum, yeah?' 'I didn't check on them.
I didn't check on them.
I always check on them! Every night I check on the boys! But I just didn't It's just the one night that I didn't, and I don't know if someone could have come in the house and taken them.
They were gonna change the lock.
They just hadn't got round to it.
There's always something you can blame yourself for.
He was the same age Sam is now.
Come and look at this.
Couldn't get him to take them off.
He even wore them in the bath.
They won't let him wear them to school.
Shit, I haven't labelled his sweatshirt.
It's scratching my neck.
Here, pull your T-shirt up a bit.
You're going to have a great time, OK? It'll be like doing half days, just a bit longer.
I'm going to have a cheese sandwich.
I'm sorry to bother you.
It's DC Jackson.
I wasn't sure It's about the forensic report.
' Yeah.
It mentions the remains of a magnolia bud.
Found between the grooves of the box.
There's a magnolia by the grave.
There is now.
The neighbours planted it for Callum.
But it wasn't in the garden when he went missing.
He wasn't buried there straightaway or they'd have found him the first time.
Yeah, but the tree wasn't planted until November 2008.
So if Jason Byrne killed himself September, two months before, that rules him out, doesn't it? Unless he had help.
So how was he? Yeah, he was fine.
You know he's taken the sand out again? Yeah.
I said he could play until tea.
What's up? His head teacher wants to meet us.
What about? She reckons they had some concerns about him settling in, but they wanted to wait Concerns about what? She didn't say exactly.
Didn't you ask? Of course I asked.
She just said that they had some concerns about his behaviour and wanted to meet with us.
Yeah, but - Jesus, Maggie, I'm just telling you what she said.
OK, fine.
She wants us to go in on Monday.
Mummy! Mummy! Mummy! Are you OK? Yeah, I'm fine.
Claire, take the boys home.
What? Take the boys home.
Fuck off.
You take them home! Callum! Callum! Please, darling.
Callum! Callum! Callum! Come on, now! Daniel! He's not here! Daniel! Daniel.
He's not here!
