The Curious...

0:00:030:00:05

..they say he collects strange tales.

0:00:050:00:08

And if you ever hear his whistle,

0:00:080:00:10

you know something creepy is about to unfold.

0:00:100:00:12

No-one knows where he's from.

0:00:150:00:17

Or where he's going to.

0:00:170:00:18

People say, "He."

0:00:190:00:21

Truth is...

0:00:210:00:22

..you can't tell if The Curious is a boy or a girl.

0:00:220:00:26

Or even human.

0:00:260:00:27

If you had the chance to do something anonymously,

0:00:290:00:32

and no-one would ever find out, just how far would you push it?

0:00:320:00:37

CHOIR SINGS PANIS ANGELICUS

0:00:520:00:54

Very accomplished, Samuel.

0:01:350:01:37

It's as if Panis Angelicus was written just for our choir.

0:01:370:01:40

Wouldn't you agree, Mr Fitzgerald?

0:01:400:01:42

I don't think he pictured one of them pregnant with an alien.

0:01:420:01:45

Yeah, I saw you.

0:01:450:01:47

Brilliant.

0:01:470:01:48

They need an outlet, am I right?

0:01:480:01:51

An outlet?

0:01:510:01:52

Mum...

0:01:530:01:54

..my allowance didn't come through...

0:01:590:02:01

..again.

0:02:020:02:03

Can I have some money? Some of the choir are going out for pizza...

0:02:040:02:07

I have nothing on me, Samuel.

0:02:070:02:10

CRYING

0:02:100:02:11

Oh! I don't need that vile online troll.

0:02:110:02:14

NoFace, the scourge of the school.

0:02:150:02:17

NoFace?

0:02:190:02:20

That's what he calls himself.

0:02:200:02:21

Too chicken to give his real name.

0:02:210:02:23

Takes distinct pleasure in humiliating kids online.

0:02:230:02:26

And he's not even funny with it.

0:02:260:02:28

How do you know it's a boy?

0:02:280:02:30

It's someone at the school?

0:02:300:02:31

Samuel, you haven't been a target, have you?

0:02:310:02:33

Not yet.

0:02:330:02:35

But if I am, I'll have a few things to say to them.

0:02:350:02:37

I think whoever it is is a coward.

0:02:380:02:40

Remember what we talked about, OK?

0:02:430:02:46

Well, they may abandon us to our fate till the end of the term,

0:02:470:02:50

but...

0:02:500:02:51

..at least they leave us treats.

0:02:510:02:53

What'd you get?

0:02:550:02:56

The usual.

0:02:570:02:58

Hey, Sam.

0:03:020:03:03

Do you want mine? I still haven't worked my way through the last lot.

0:03:030:03:09

Your hair looks different today, Naini.

0:03:090:03:13

A boy who notices. Thank you, Sam.

0:03:130:03:15

I noticed.

0:03:170:03:19

SHE GIGGLES

0:03:190:03:20

I noticed.

0:03:200:03:21

And I noticed you're confident like,

0:03:210:03:23

"Oh, don't make eye contact with me."

0:03:230:03:25

Right, who's coming to Zuko's?

0:03:250:03:28

Sammy? You coming for pizza?

0:03:280:03:31

Er, nah.

0:03:310:03:32

I'll skip it.

0:03:320:03:33

It's OK, Sam.

0:03:350:03:36

Fitzy'll bring you back a slice, won't you, Fitz?

0:03:360:03:40

And you'll never know if I licked it.

0:03:400:03:42

Here, watch this, yeah.

0:03:450:03:47

THEY LAUGH

ROCK MUSIC PLAYS

0:03:580:03:59

Anyone seen Naini's new hair?

0:04:160:04:18

And she likes to think she's not part of the herd.

0:04:190:04:22

Found out today, Fitzy took a bet to get Naini Ramone to go out with him.

0:04:290:04:35

It's all a big joke.

0:04:360:04:38

He likes to pretend he's everyone's best mate.

0:04:440:04:46

But while he's smiling to your face, he's laughing behind your back.

0:04:460:04:51

Apparently, he's way insecure.

0:04:510:04:54

The funny ones are always off crying alone in the toilets

0:04:580:05:01

when you're not looking.

0:05:010:05:03

GOAT BLEATS

0:05:120:05:13

That's not very nice.

0:05:160:05:19

Do it again and pay the price.

0:05:190:05:22

See you later, Billygoat.

0:05:260:05:28

BELLS CHIME

0:05:280:05:30

Hey, how was Zuko's?

0:05:300:05:33

In true Fitzy style,

0:05:330:05:35

he put the pizza slice under my pillow with a note from

0:05:350:05:38

a pizza fairy.

0:05:380:05:39

You OK?

0:05:410:05:42

Whatever. At least I look like the front end of this llama.

0:05:460:05:49

You can guarantee whoever did this looks like the backend.

0:05:490:05:52

Actually, I'm more upset about this.

0:05:520:05:56

No, that can't be true.

0:06:000:06:02

You don't know about a bet?

0:06:030:06:06

It's Fitzy, Naini.

0:06:060:06:08

He wouldn't do that. Ask him.

0:06:080:06:09

Don't know what to believe, Sam.

0:06:110:06:13

Hey, Naini.

0:06:150:06:17

Would you want to hang with me at lunch tomorrow?

0:06:180:06:22

Like, just you and me.

0:06:220:06:25

We can talk it through, if you like.

0:06:250:06:27

-That'd be nice.

-What'd be nice?

0:06:300:06:33

Er, I've got to go. I have to get to class.

0:06:330:06:35

What's with her?

0:06:380:06:39

INTERCOM: Sam Sanford, you're wanted in the headmaster's office.

0:06:390:06:42

Sam Sanford to the headmaster's office.

0:06:420:06:45

What have you done now, mate?

0:06:450:06:46

Sit here.

0:06:460:06:48

I can pay.

0:06:510:06:53

I just need more time.

0:06:530:06:54

Mrs Sanford, not to be indelicate,

0:06:540:06:56

but that is what you said the last time.

0:06:560:06:59

Can you afford to send your son to this school or not?

0:06:590:07:03

If not, sadly, Sam will have to leave us.

0:07:050:07:10

I'm working as hard as I can.

0:07:130:07:16

It's not just the fees.

0:07:160:07:17

There's the winter uniform, and summer uniform, and cricket whites,

0:07:170:07:21

and rugby boots and sailing gear and the endless cassocks, and...

0:07:210:07:24

Mother!

0:07:240:07:25

Why can't he apply for this?

0:07:280:07:29

A Riseborough Scholarship.

0:07:310:07:32

That would pay for everything, wouldn't it?

0:07:320:07:34

That is open to treble soloists, Mrs Sanford. Sam is a baritone.

0:07:340:07:38

I can do it!

0:07:380:07:39

Sir...

0:07:410:07:42

..let me sing solo.

0:07:420:07:45

And I WILL prove it to you.

0:07:450:07:48

If he does, does he get to stay?

0:07:480:07:50

If, Mrs Sanford, if.

0:07:500:07:52

See you at the performance.

0:07:560:07:58

We are not leaving this school.

0:08:030:08:05

What are you doing?

0:08:250:08:27

Scared me, dude.

0:08:270:08:28

I was listening to music.

0:08:290:08:32

Couldn't sleep.

0:08:320:08:34

All right, well, don't stay up too late,

0:08:350:08:37

we've got rehearsal first thing.

0:08:370:08:39

GOAT BLEATS

0:09:130:09:15

I warned you not to do that.

0:09:150:09:17

Do it again and pay the price.

0:09:170:09:19

Do it again and pay the price.

0:09:190:09:21

Do it again and pay the...

BELL CHIMES

0:10:330:10:36

What?

0:10:390:10:41

What is this?

0:10:460:10:48

# One, two, three, four

0:11:020:11:05

# One, two, three, four

0:11:050:11:09

# One, two, three, four

0:11:090:11:12

# One, two... #

0:11:120:11:14

Stop, stop!

0:11:140:11:15

There are times when this choir moves me to tears.

0:11:180:11:21

Today is not one of them.

0:11:210:11:23

There are tears, but...

0:11:230:11:24

..they're the kind you get when you step on a plug.

0:11:250:11:29

-Sorry. Sorry I'm late, overslept.

-Ah, Mr Sanford!

0:11:290:11:33

For those here who don't know,

0:11:350:11:38

Mr Sanford is on the verge of leaving us.

0:11:380:11:42

That is unless he can win the coveted Riseborough Scholarship by

0:11:440:11:49

performing the Mount Everest of treble solos,

0:11:490:11:52

Art Thou Troubled from Handel's Rodelinda at this evening's recital.

0:11:520:11:57

Apparently, he also thinks he can do it without rehearsal.

0:11:570:12:00

Young man!

0:12:020:12:03

Would you care to give us a little sample of the solo you intend to

0:12:070:12:11

perform this evening?

0:12:110:12:12

And maybe acquire a little practice for once.

0:12:120:12:15

0:12:540:12:56

You, er...

0:13:040:13:06

..won't be LATE for this recital tonight, will you?

0:13:060:13:10

No, sir, I won't.

0:13:100:13:11

HE SNIFFS

0:13:280:13:29

Ugh!

0:13:350:13:37

DOOR CREAKS OPEN

0:13:410:13:43

-You're proving elusive, Sammy boy.

-Sorry.

0:13:450:13:48

Got a bit on my mind at the moment.

0:13:480:13:50

So I hear.

0:13:500:13:52

Leaving?

0:13:520:13:54

And what, you couldn't share it with your best mate?

0:13:540:13:56

I'm getting the scholarship.

0:13:560:13:58

It's not worth talking about.

0:13:580:14:01

Found out why Naini's gone quiet.

0:14:010:14:03

Someone's been spreading rumours about me.

0:14:030:14:05

What?

0:14:050:14:07

Who?

0:14:070:14:09

Well, one guess, that idiot, NoFace.

0:14:090:14:12

Let me have a word with Naini.

0:14:130:14:15

-Set her straight.

-No!

0:14:150:14:17

I'll do it. And I'll prove it's the work of that ugly, useless coward

0:14:170:14:22

who must be the biggest loser if he gets his kicks like this.

0:14:220:14:26

Good for you, man.

0:14:290:14:30

HE SIGHS

0:14:350:14:36

Turns out Naini herself spread the rumours about Fitzy.

0:14:410:14:46

Overheard her telling someone that Fitzy weirds her out,

0:14:460:14:49

and she did it as an excuse to get rid of him!

0:14:490:14:53

STOMACH RUMBLES

0:15:130:15:14

Ugh!

0:15:140:15:16

What is this?

0:15:200:15:23

BELL RINGS

0:15:230:15:25

I know it sounds weird, but I love frozen peas.

0:15:250:15:29

I'll sit in front of the telly with a cup of them,

0:15:290:15:31

and eat them like crisps.

0:15:310:15:33

Does that make me a freak?

0:15:340:15:36

Definitely not a freak.

0:15:360:15:38

SHE CHUCKLES

0:15:380:15:39

Do you have anything like that?

0:15:390:15:41

Er...

0:15:410:15:43

..I chew ice.

0:15:430:15:44

I knew it. You're a freak, too.

0:15:440:15:46

You know, sometimes I feel like you're a bit...

0:15:490:15:52

..I don't know...

0:15:520:15:53

..closed off.

0:15:550:15:57

Like, there's a whole lot more going on underneath.

0:15:570:16:01

What you see is what you get.

0:16:010:16:02

I thought I'd give Fitzy a chance to defend himself.

0:16:030:16:07

I mean, it's not fair if it's just dumb rumours, right?

0:16:070:16:10

You...

0:16:100:16:11

..spoke to him?

0:16:110:16:13

He's flipped at me, Sam.

0:16:130:16:14

Said that I'd been horrible to him, and that he didn't want to have

0:16:140:16:17

anything to do with me.

0:16:170:16:18

I'm really sorry, Naini.

0:16:200:16:22

You think you know someone, right?

0:16:220:16:24

HIS STOMACH RUMBLES

0:16:290:16:31

Are you OK?

0:16:310:16:32

Erm, yeah.

0:16:320:16:34

Feeling a bit...

0:16:340:16:35

..off. Allergies.

0:16:350:16:38

It's my allergies, Naini.

0:16:380:16:39

I'm really sorry.

0:16:400:16:41

Sam?

0:16:410:16:43

Sam!

0:16:430:16:44

What is happening?!

0:17:080:17:10

Is this what the message meant?

0:17:140:17:15

Curse?

0:17:250:17:27

"Moondweller beware...

0:17:300:17:32

"..your actions have consequences.

0:17:330:17:35

"From this moment forth, thou innermost troll...

0:17:350:17:38

"..shall become thine outermost."

0:17:390:17:42

GOAT BLEATS

0:17:430:17:45

Is that the sound of a penny dropping?

0:17:450:17:48

How do I undo the curse?

0:17:480:17:50

Trolls must hide.

0:17:540:17:56

Stay hidden until sunset.

0:17:570:18:00

By sunrise, you will return to normal.

0:18:000:18:03

All you have to do is stay out of sight.

0:18:030:18:07

I can't do that.

0:18:070:18:08

Oh, that's right.

0:18:100:18:12

You have that important choir recital.

0:18:130:18:17

But I believe in second chances.

0:18:170:18:20

If you take to the stage this evening and announce to everyone

0:18:200:18:24

you are online troll NoFace, I will take back the curse.

0:18:240:18:30

You will return to normal.

0:18:300:18:32

I can't do that.

0:18:320:18:33

Everyone will hate me.

0:18:330:18:35

I'll lose all my friends.

0:18:350:18:37

Everything!

0:18:370:18:39

You have until the sun sets to stay hidden, or admit your deeds.

0:18:390:18:45

Otherwise, you will remain a troll forever.

0:18:450:18:48

Sam? You in there? Why is the door locked?

0:18:540:18:57

Erm, I kind of need to be alone right now, Fitz.

0:18:570:19:00

Not myself.

0:19:010:19:03

Aw, nerves getting the better of you, buddy?

0:19:030:19:05

Hey, there's some fresh pants in the drawer if you need them!

0:19:050:19:07

Not helping!

0:19:070:19:08

Hey, Sammy boy, you'll ace it.

0:19:080:19:11

I know you will.

0:19:110:19:12

I'm sick, Fitzy.

0:19:120:19:14

I don't think I can do it.

0:19:150:19:17

You sound all right.

0:19:170:19:18

Sound all right...?

0:19:200:19:22

Ah, Mr Sanford.

0:19:420:19:45

Yes, sir?

0:19:450:19:47

What's with the hood?

0:19:470:19:49

Stage fright, sir.

0:19:490:19:50

Crippling.

0:19:500:19:52

I can't go on without it.

0:19:520:19:53

You've never had stage fright before.

0:19:530:19:56

I've...never done a solo before.

0:19:570:20:01

And you're really frightened?

0:20:010:20:03

Terrified, sir.

0:20:030:20:05

Very well, just this once.

0:20:080:20:10

Hurry up now, you don't want to miss your solo.

0:21:160:21:17

-You OK?

-Yeah, OK.

0:21:180:21:19

I've got it. I've got it.

0:21:190:21:21

Give me a moment.

0:21:210:21:23

SAM GROWLS

0:21:240:21:26

Boy, remove your hood.

0:21:300:21:32

Well?

0:21:450:21:46

What are you waiting for?

0:21:460:21:49

ALL GASP

0:21:500:21:52

Admit your deeds.

0:22:060:22:08

I will take back the curse.

0:22:100:22:12

You will return to normal.

0:22:120:22:14

Admit your deeds.

0:22:200:22:22

Admit your deeds!

0:22:220:22:25

I can't.

0:22:250:22:26

CROWD MURMURS

0:22:260:22:28

Glad to see the back of him.

0:23:260:23:27

I heard his mum took him away for some sort of treatment.

0:23:270:23:30

Yeah, and I heard it was a prank and he got expelled.

0:23:300:23:33

Well, I'm just glad they found his laptop,

0:23:330:23:35

-or else we might never have spoken again.

-Yeah,

0:23:350:23:37

and I'm glad you're ugly on the outside and not on the inside.

0:23:370:23:39

Hey!

0:23:390:23:41

Definitely prefer it that way around.

0:23:410:23:43

SHE CHUCKLES

0:23:430:23:44

Words that takes seconds to type can wound for ever...

0:24:110:24:15

..but anonymity goes both ways...

0:24:160:24:18

..and you'll never know who's going to be your billy goat.

0:24:200:24:23

If you had a chance to do something totally anonymously, and no one would ever find out, just how far would you push it? Sam has a promising future ahead of him at school but his anonymous posts on the school social media site could be his downfall.
