VIOLIN CONTINUES

0:00:500:00:52

I found it hard enough going for milk, let alone playing music.

0:01:330:01:36

Sorry, it is a bit early.

0:01:360:01:38

Just need to get some practice in for tonight.

0:01:380:01:40

Only you'd get me to a classical concert.

0:01:400:01:42

I'm looking forward to seeing you play...hearing you.

0:01:420:01:45

Did you say Sarah was seeing an older guy?

0:01:480:01:50

There's a smart bloke outside,

0:01:500:01:52

looks like he'd afford more than a dodgy pizza.

0:01:520:01:54

-What does he look like?

-Like he's got a bit of money.

0:01:540:01:57

-He'd have to with Sarah's tastes.

-That's harsh!

-Well, he does.

0:01:570:02:01

Expensive-looking coat.

0:02:010:02:02

Must be keen, he was looking very intense.

0:02:020:02:05

-Are you sure?

-Yeah, he looked really out of place.

0:02:050:02:08

I can't imagine he's ever worn jeans in his life.

0:02:080:02:11

-You OK?

-Yeah. A bit nervous.

0:02:110:02:14

-You'll be great.

-I hope so.

0:02:140:02:16

Look, I just need to look over some of these pieces I'm doing, so...

0:02:160:02:20

Yeah, I've got some reading I need to do anyway.

0:02:200:02:22

MUSIC: "Viens Mallika" (The Flower Duet)

0:02:340:02:37

I now wake up thinking about PCT strategy.

0:02:390:02:42

I'll be dreaming about it soon.

0:02:420:02:44

If you hear me saying "Julia" in my sleep,

0:02:440:02:48

rest assured it's only paperwork.

0:02:480:02:50

I'm not exactly looking forward to my day either.

0:02:500:02:53

I've got a really tough Teenage Mother Support Group later.

0:02:530:02:58

Oh, you'll be fine! If you see me drowning in PCT,

0:02:580:03:01

please throw me a lifebelt.

0:03:010:03:03

Can we talk about something else? Something nice,

0:03:030:03:07

like our first Christmas together?

0:03:070:03:09

We could really do the place up.

0:03:090:03:11

And there's always the option of Tuscany.

0:03:110:03:14

I was going to ask you, Heston,

0:03:160:03:18

I'd like Ian to spend Christmas with us.

0:03:180:03:20

-If you don't mind.

-No, of course not.

0:03:200:03:23

-The more the merrier. Best be going!

-Mmm.

0:03:230:03:26

See you later.

0:03:270:03:29

Today is our 20-week scan.

0:04:330:04:35

Seeing the baby early is going be like an early Christmas present.

0:04:350:04:39

Aw. So you'll find out if it's a boy or a girl?

0:04:390:04:42

-Yes.

-No.

0:04:420:04:43

You still want to know?

0:04:430:04:45

Of course I do. Since when did I say I'd changed my mind?

0:04:450:04:48

Life has fewer and fewer mysteries, but this can still be one of them.

0:04:480:04:52

There's nothing mysterious about childbirth, Daniel.

0:04:520:04:55

As far as I'm concerned, I'd like the facts.

0:04:550:04:57

So, how are you feeling after yesterday? Still a bit weepy?

0:05:000:05:03

COIN CLINKS IN BOWL

0:05:090:05:11

Thanks for keeping me company.

0:05:150:05:16

It's all right. I've never seen you nervous before.

0:05:160:05:19

-It's dentists with me.

-Laura!

0:05:190:05:22

It's so good to see you. I was wondering if I had the right place.

0:05:240:05:27

-Do you know him?

-Hasn't she told you about me?

0:05:270:05:30

Aren't you going to say hello?

0:05:300:05:32

I just wanted to see how you are, how your studies are going.

0:05:320:05:35

We could always talk about music.

0:05:350:05:37

Yeah, we'd spend hours together, listening to music, a glass of wine.

0:05:370:05:42

-What...you act like you don't know me!

-Laura?

0:05:420:05:45

Who is he? Why can't you tell me?

0:05:510:05:54

What's wrong? You're not in trouble, are you?

0:05:540:05:57

You have no right to be here. How did you even know...?

0:05:570:06:00

You're on the internet.

0:06:000:06:01

The concert? I thought, "I can't be wrong this time."

0:06:010:06:05

Laura Blackwell? If you'd like to go through.

0:06:050:06:08

Laura?

0:06:090:06:10

I need to be with her.

0:06:130:06:14

-This is Miss Blackwell's appointment.

-Then I should be with her.

0:06:140:06:18

Are you her father, Mr Blackwell?

0:06:180:06:20

It doesn't matter who I am. I've come to see her.

0:06:200:06:22

I don't think this a good time.

0:06:220:06:24

This is a joke!

0:06:240:06:26

I can assure you it isn't.

0:06:260:06:28

What kind of doctor would you be if everything was kept a mystery?

0:06:380:06:41

As you keep saying, you're not ill.

0:06:410:06:43

So this has nothing to do with your health.

0:06:430:06:45

And not knowing will make me feel good, will it?

0:06:450:06:47

If we find out if it's a boy or girl,

0:06:470:06:49

we might get ideas about what they'll be like.

0:06:490:06:52

Pick a name that doesn't suit them. I don't want that.

0:06:520:06:54

We won't. I just want to know.

0:06:540:06:57

-What, no surprises?

-None.

0:06:570:06:59

Some people just don't like surprises.

0:07:010:07:04

What are you studying?

0:07:080:07:09

-Music.

-I saw a Rachmaninoff concert here recently.

0:07:090:07:14

-Wasn't it wonderful?

-Oh, you saw it, too?

0:07:140:07:16

It made me feel so...alive.

0:07:160:07:20

Hmm. So what's the problem?

0:07:200:07:22

It's my shoulder.

0:07:220:07:25

I'm worried it's playing the violin that's causing me so much pain.

0:07:250:07:29

Are you her father?

0:07:340:07:35

So she hasn't told you about me?

0:07:370:07:39

-You're not close, then?

-It has nothing to do with you.

0:07:390:07:41

-Don't get involved in things you don't understand.

-I'll find out.

0:07:410:07:45

-Really?

-I think you should go.

0:07:450:07:47

I wouldn't mind one of those.

0:08:040:08:07

-Any progress with the herbal tea?

-Still ghastly.

0:08:070:08:10

What?

0:08:130:08:15

You wouldn't cope very well with childbirth, would you?

0:08:150:08:17

Course not, darling.

0:08:170:08:19

What's wrong?

0:08:200:08:22

-Nothing, just want some caffeine.

-This is about the scan, isn't it?

0:08:220:08:26

I cannot believe you are being so childish.

0:08:260:08:29

-Me? You're the one who's throwing her toys out the pram.

-What?

0:08:290:08:32

Is this how it'll be? Is this the pattern we can expect as parents?

0:08:320:08:35

-What are you talking about?

-We discuss something privately,

0:08:350:08:38

we agree, then you come to a completely different conclusion.

0:08:380:08:42

-I hardly sprang this on you.

-Really? Let's not forget you're pregnant,

0:08:420:08:46

so your feelings are more important. I just need to know,

0:08:460:08:49

is this how it's going to be? Mummy knows best?

0:08:490:08:52

You are being ridiculous.

0:08:520:08:53

This is about today. I don't want to leave it to nature.

0:08:530:08:56

I'm glad I'll have more than a towel and some hot water

0:08:560:08:59

-to support me in labour.

-A scan isn't the same.

0:08:590:09:01

This is about choices!

0:09:010:09:04

And I have made mine.

0:09:040:09:05

Right, it looks like there's a lot of tension there.

0:09:080:09:11

I think your muscles are going into spasm

0:09:110:09:14

-every time you play.

-I do tend to play at full pelt.

0:09:140:09:18

Mm-hm. Right. I'll give you some anti-inflammatories,

0:09:180:09:21

but we really have to look at this long-term,

0:09:210:09:25

and consider how often you practise.

0:09:250:09:27

No. I've got a concert tonight.

0:09:270:09:30

I have to play. It's my protection.

0:09:300:09:33

From what?

0:09:330:09:35

I didn't mean it like that.

0:09:360:09:39

Erm... I've not been sleeping well, the pain...

0:09:390:09:43

I just mean it helps me relax.

0:09:430:09:45

Doesn't sound very relaxing.

0:09:450:09:47

Do you think it's serious?

0:09:490:09:51

No, but it could be.

0:09:510:09:53

A lot of musicians suffer from this sort of problem.

0:09:530:09:55

I don't think physiotherapy will do it,

0:09:550:09:57

so I'll refer you to an Orthopaedic Surgeon at St Phil's.

0:09:570:10:00

He needs to know that I have to play.

0:10:000:10:03

I'm not me if I don't. Do you understand?

0:10:030:10:05

Of course, which is why we should do all we can

0:10:050:10:08

to make sure you can play without pain.

0:10:080:10:11

VOICEMAIL: 'Please speak after the beep.'

0:10:130:10:17

Oh, hello, darling. It's me.

0:10:170:10:20

Ian's just rung, and...

0:10:200:10:22

well, he says he wants to spend Christmas with his dad, so...

0:10:220:10:26

Oh, well.

0:10:260:10:28

Just needed to hear a friendly voice, that's all - yours.

0:10:280:10:32

I'm just not in the right frame of mind for this support group, and...

0:10:320:10:36

they're so going to know it.

0:10:360:10:37

Erm, look, just give us a ring, yeah?

0:10:370:10:41

Troops...me...need rallying.

0:10:410:10:43

Can you give us a call, yeah? You, love.

0:10:430:10:47

You'll get a letter before long. In the meantime, be careful.

0:10:480:10:51

The medication will help this evening,

0:10:510:10:54

but take it easy.

0:10:540:10:56

-He's gone.

-Thanks, Doctor Carter. I'll try.

0:10:560:11:00

-If you can, it will help.

-I've got to go to my seminar.

0:11:000:11:04

But maybe we can meet later? Go into town,

0:11:040:11:06

I can get my prescription and we could get lunch?

0:11:060:11:09

-But what about...?

-It's fine.

-You ran away!

-It's nothing!

0:11:090:11:12

I'm going to be late. See you later.

0:11:120:11:16

Did she say anything?

0:11:180:11:20

-Try and encourage her to play less.

-I will, if she'll listen.

0:11:210:11:25

But she's never mentioned her dad before, if it's him.

0:11:250:11:28

We're mates, but she tends to keep private.

0:11:280:11:31

I seem to tell her everything.

0:11:310:11:34

I've never seen her like that before. She was scared.

0:11:340:11:37

I'm sure she'll tell you in her own time.

0:11:380:11:41

If you, erm, need anything...

0:11:410:11:45

don't hesitate to call.

0:11:450:11:47

Sorry to bother you. I'm trying to make a surprise visit.

0:11:530:11:57

Um, Laura Blackwell.

0:11:570:11:59

Do you know her? Ah, she'll go mad at me for embarrassing her.

0:11:590:12:03

HE CHUCKLES

0:12:030:12:04

Someone has a spring in her step. What did I miss?

0:12:110:12:14

Well, have you just sold a house? Because we have.

0:12:140:12:17

We can FINALLY move on!

0:12:170:12:20

You sold it?! That dull little house?

0:12:200:12:24

Who on earth bought it?

0:12:240:12:26

Er, I don't know, what sort of people would buy a dull little house?

0:12:260:12:29

Dull little people?

0:12:290:12:31

Did they have matching jumpers and start discussing

0:12:310:12:34

what to do with the garden?

0:12:340:12:35

Dull little people? You don't think anyone interesting would move in?

0:12:350:12:39

Hardly! I can just see them - matching cagoules hanging up.

0:12:390:12:43

-I'm right, aren't I?

-I'm going to, erm, make a phone call.

0:12:430:12:46

It's true what they say - moving house, so much to do!

0:12:460:12:50

People are so strange.

0:12:500:12:53

Yeah, they are.

0:12:530:12:54

Ready?

0:12:560:12:57

I am.

0:12:570:12:59

The question is, are you?

0:12:590:13:01

Good luck.

0:13:030:13:04

Is it too soon for another coffee?

0:13:080:13:09

Storing them up so you won't fall asleep tonight?

0:13:090:13:12

I'm mixing caffeine and classical music. It'll be crazy!

0:13:120:13:15

Thanks.

0:13:170:13:18

For this afternoon. I appreciated it.

0:13:190:13:22

And for not asking questions.

0:13:220:13:24

Well, anytime you want to answer them, let me know.

0:13:240:13:27

You can tell me anything.

0:13:270:13:29

There's nothing to talk about.

0:13:290:13:31

But he's your dad. Unless you like older men, too?

0:13:310:13:34

That's an awful thing to say.

0:13:340:13:36

Then help me out.

0:13:360:13:38

I...I care about you.

0:13:380:13:41

It's, it's not what you think.

0:13:430:13:45

It's...

0:13:450:13:46

Look, why don't you relax before tonight? I'll get the kettle on.

0:13:480:13:51

I brought you a gift.

0:14:150:14:17

Remember the first time we listened to it?

0:14:240:14:27

I've been waiting so long.

0:14:300:14:33

It was always so hard to part you two.

0:14:450:14:49

VIOLIN PLAYS

0:14:550:14:59

Hey! Relaxing doesn't mean more playing!

0:15:010:15:04

You need to take it easy.

0:15:060:15:08

Laura? Only messing.

0:15:100:15:13

Laura?

0:15:170:15:19

-Laura!

-DOORKNOB RATTLES

0:15:320:15:35

Please!

0:15:350:15:36

Hello, can I speak to Doctor Carter, please?

0:16:040:16:07

It's urgent.

0:16:070:16:08

It's ridiculous! That machine clearly had the same mindset as you.

0:16:140:16:17

The baby turned around, obviously felt like I did. It was fate.

0:16:170:16:21

Inconclusive? You wouldn't accept an inconclusive X-ray for a broken leg.

0:16:210:16:25

It's hardly the same. You didn't get the information you wanted

0:16:250:16:28

cos our baby didn't want you to have it. It was meant to be.

0:16:280:16:31

This is too important to leave to chance. I want a private scan.

0:16:310:16:34

We've discussed this. We should accept the results.

0:16:340:16:37

YOU need to accept with a baby you can't control everything.

0:16:370:16:40

Please, don't book a scan.

0:16:400:16:42

Let's let the baby reveal itself to us when it's ready.

0:16:420:16:45

This is your baby, and it's healthy.

0:16:460:16:49

Please enjoy it.

0:16:490:16:51

I know. You're right.

0:16:510:16:54

I have started picturing it.

0:16:550:16:57

Giving it a bath in our bathroom,

0:16:570:17:00

turning the spare room into a nursery.

0:17:000:17:03

But I still think I have a right to know

0:17:030:17:05

whether it's a son or daughter I'm going to be taking home.

0:17:050:17:09

-VIOLIN CONTINUES

-See? I don't know what to do.

0:17:090:17:13

Laura! It's Doctor Carter.

0:17:130:17:16

-Can you hear me?

-Leave us alone! >

0:17:160:17:18

That's him! Look, open the door!

0:17:180:17:20

I don't think this shouting is going to help, OK?

0:17:200:17:22

Laura?

0:17:220:17:24

Laura?

0:17:240:17:26

-Laura! Are you all right?

-How did you get in there?

0:17:270:17:30

-Just leave this to me.

-Stop wasting our time and leave! >

0:17:300:17:33

You were at the surgery earlier.

0:17:330:17:36

Look, leave us alone! >

0:17:360:17:38

I will if I can speak to Laura, but I haven't heard a word.

0:17:380:17:41

I can look after my own daughter. >

0:17:410:17:42

VIOLIN FALTERS, RESUMES

0:17:440:17:46

'Please speak after the beep.'

0:17:460:17:48

Hi. It's me again.

0:17:480:17:51

Didn't you get any of my messages?

0:17:510:17:55

It's just really hard running a support group

0:17:550:17:57

when you don't have any support yourself.

0:17:570:18:00

I just really needed you today, Heston.

0:18:020:18:05

OK.

0:18:050:18:06

Mr Blackwell, you give me no choice.

0:18:170:18:20

If you are holding your daughter against her will,

0:18:200:18:22

I'm going to have to call the police.

0:18:220:18:25

Why on earth would you do that?

0:18:340:18:37

Because I haven't heard a word from your daughter,

0:18:370:18:39

and this morning it was clear she didn't want to see you.

0:18:390:18:43

-Are you all right?

-You can see she's fine.

0:18:470:18:49

-Do you want your father to go?

-I won't fall for that.

0:18:490:18:52

-This isn't a game.

-I want some time with her.

-No.

0:18:520:18:55

Do you know how hard it's been? Trying to find you?

0:18:550:18:58

-There's a reason for that.

-I think you'd better go.

0:18:580:19:00

I wonder where you've been.

0:19:000:19:02

I remember you saying that some hours ago, yet here I am.

0:19:020:19:05

-I called the police.

-Why?

-You broke in! You must have!

0:19:050:19:07

A young lady let me in. She probably wishes her dad would visit.

0:19:070:19:11

-He was here waiting for me.

-Yes I was, after years of waiting.

0:19:110:19:14

-Why are you doing this?

-You really should leave, Mr Blackwell.

0:19:140:19:17

-We loved music. You can hear that when you play. Laura...

-No!

0:19:170:19:20

-Leave her alone!

-Get off me!

0:19:200:19:23

I'm her father! I'll always find her.

0:19:230:19:26

I'll always be there.

THUD, TWANG

0:19:330:19:35

RADIO: "Blue Christmas" by Elvis

0:19:490:19:52

Let's go through that again.

0:20:060:20:09

You may feel worse tonight when the shock wears off.

0:20:090:20:12

That's natural, the mind tends to relive things.

0:20:120:20:15

-You might want to talk to someone.

-It's nothing compared to...

0:20:150:20:19

If I can do anything...

0:20:190:20:21

-You already have.

-I'm not going to disappear.

0:20:210:20:24

If ever you need me or... Just ask?

0:20:240:20:27

The police will want to speak to you both.

0:20:270:20:30

They're aware your father broke his restraining order

0:20:300:20:33

and they need a statement from me.

0:20:330:20:35

-I'm so sorry.

-This is not an inconvenience.

0:20:350:20:38

I don't want you staying away from the surgery

0:20:380:20:40

out of a misplaced sense of guilt or embarrassment.

0:20:400:20:43

Could we have a word on our own?

0:20:450:20:48

When you said...

0:20:540:20:56

music was your protection,

0:20:560:20:59

you meant from your father?

0:20:590:21:01

He was the one who thought I should play.

0:21:010:21:04

So when I did, I knew I was safe for a while.

0:21:040:21:07

Yet playing is how he found me again.

0:21:070:21:10

Don't feel you have to deal with this on your own.

0:21:100:21:13

He always used to...use music.

0:21:130:21:17

With this and a dodgy shoulder, maybe you're right.

0:21:170:21:20

I need something else.

0:21:200:21:22

You do realise the gift of music is yours, not your father's?

0:21:220:21:26

Thanks.

0:21:260:21:28

Well, this is definitely beyond repair.

0:21:300:21:33

Such craftsmanship.

0:21:350:21:38

Time for a new one, I think.

0:21:380:21:40

A new beginning?

0:21:410:21:43

I hope so.

0:21:440:21:46

PHONE RINGS

0:21:510:21:53

-Hello.

-Hello. I really wanted to hear your voice, too.

0:22:000:22:05

Then why didn't you call?

0:22:050:22:06

I'm sorry. I've had a hard day as well, believe me.

0:22:060:22:09

Hmm. So bad you couldn't spare two minutes?

0:22:090:22:12

I can't go into it now.

0:22:120:22:15

So why bother calling me, then?

0:22:150:22:18

Look...I'm sorry.

0:22:180:22:20

We'll talk about it when you get home.

0:22:200:22:23

Well, that's the unfortunate thing.

0:22:230:22:25

What do you mean?

0:22:250:22:27

I haven't done as much work on this PCT stuff...

0:22:270:22:30

Heston... I've made a really nice dinner.

0:22:300:22:33

-Have you?

-'Yes.'

0:22:330:22:36

'And I've had a very bad day too, you know.'

0:22:360:22:38

It's ready to go, it'll be ruined!

0:22:380:22:41

You see, the thing is, the PCT...

0:22:410:22:45

I wish you'd let me know sooner, that's all.

0:22:450:22:47

So you've come out of hiding, then?

0:23:050:23:06

-It's hardly hiding if you can see me.

-Did you phone the estate agent?

0:23:060:23:10

-What?

-You said you had to make a call.

0:23:100:23:13

Do you not remember? I just presumed...

0:23:130:23:15

Yeah, yeah. You know what it's like.

0:23:150:23:17

And did you explain to the estate agent

0:23:170:23:19

why you had to escape from the staff room?

0:23:190:23:22

I saw your face, even if Zara didn't.

0:23:220:23:24

-What? When she practically called me a dull little person?

-Exactly.

0:23:240:23:28

But you didn't seem very upset.

0:23:280:23:30

Why is that?

0:23:300:23:32

It's nothing.

0:23:320:23:35

-Karen!

-Come on. Tell your Auntie Karen.

0:23:350:23:38

OK.

0:23:400:23:41

Daniel has bought our house.

0:23:410:23:44

As a surprise for Zara.

0:23:460:23:48

Ohh! Oh! Oh!

0:23:490:23:52

Oh, it will be a surprise.

0:23:520:23:54

He is a dead man walking!

0:23:540:23:56

Ooh, lovely.

0:23:570:23:59

SHE OPENS A DRAWER

0:24:090:24:11

Am I in the doghouse?

0:24:430:24:44

I thought you'd be hours.

0:24:470:24:48

I'm sorry about today.

0:24:500:24:52

And I'm sorry about Ian.

0:24:520:24:54

It's all done and dusted.

0:24:560:24:57

Events prevented me from calling you.

0:24:590:25:01

I wanted to. Look, I thought I'd do some work after supper.

0:25:010:25:06

It would be a shame to spoil all your efforts,

0:25:060:25:08

which smell wonderful.

0:25:080:25:10

Well, the aroma's all that's left, I'm afraid.

0:25:110:25:15

The bin got the benefit.

0:25:150:25:17

No.

0:25:180:25:20

I'm really sorry, but look...

0:25:200:25:24

I'd had such a hard day

0:25:240:25:26

and I so wanted to see you, and...

0:25:260:25:28

I do have a little bit of a temper sometimes.

0:25:300:25:32

You are a passionate woman.

0:25:320:25:35

Don't ever change.

0:25:350:25:37

-How's a bowl of pasta sound?

-Like heaven.

0:25:390:25:42

You two thought about moving,

0:25:580:26:00

what with the baby, having a bigger garden, that sort of thing?

0:26:000:26:03

What, do you mean the suburbs?

0:26:030:26:06

Yeah. More of a family house.

0:26:060:26:09

Why does a baby have to mean boring?

0:26:110:26:13

Isn't it vital babies have stimulation?

0:26:130:26:15

No, I just thought you might like more space, that's all.

0:26:150:26:18

I can assure you

0:26:180:26:19

hell will have icicles before I consider moving near a place

0:26:190:26:23

with neat little rows of pansies.

0:26:230:26:25

That is just not me, is it?

0:26:250:26:27

I'd have thought you'd know me better by now, Karen.

0:26:270:26:30

I need you to find me somewhere to live.

0:26:460:26:48

I've got everything I need.

0:26:480:26:49

And...money.

0:26:510:26:52

-Nardee!

-Hello, my little angel.

0:26:530:26:56

Well, look at you.

0:26:560:26:58

-You'll not tell me daughters where I am?

-No, we won't tell them.

0:26:580:27:02

Mmm.

0:27:050:27:06

Oh...
