# Just a castaway

0:00:320:00:34

# An island lost at sea, oh

0:00:340:00:37

# Another lonely day

0:00:380:00:40

# With no-one here but me, oh

0:00:400:00:44

# More loneliness

0:00:450:00:47

# Than any man could bear

0:00:470:00:49

# Rescue me before I fall into despair, oh

0:00:510:00:56

# I'll send an SOS to the world

0:00:560:01:00

# I'll send an SOS to the world

0:01:000:01:03

# I hope that someone gets my

# Message in a bottle, yeah

# Message in a bottle, yeah

0:01:190:01:22

# A year has passed

0:01:260:01:28

# Since I wrote my note... #

0:01:280:01:30

-All right, Jimmi?

-Sorry?

0:01:300:01:33

Thought I'd make the most of the day. What you doing here? Are you all right?

0:01:330:01:38

# Love can mend your life

0:01:450:01:47

# But love can break your heart

0:01:470:01:51

0:02:070:02:11

Hello, Imogen! Hope you're working the light!

0:02:130:02:16

Mrs Drake.

0:02:260:02:28

Great to see you.

0:02:280:02:30

Sadie. I'm off duty. What's the project?

0:02:300:02:33

I'm updating my portfolio.

0:02:330:02:36

Ah. Polarising filter?

0:02:360:02:38

-Ooops!

-Reflections will ruin your composition.

-What can I say?

0:02:390:02:43

Since my favourite teacher retired, everything's fallen apart.

0:02:430:02:47

Relocated, not retired.

0:02:470:02:49

This is brilliant.

0:02:490:02:51

You're free to go wherever you want.

0:02:510:02:53

Totally, this would be my dream.

0:02:530:02:55

Your field of view always was weird.

0:02:550:02:58

More quirky, I'd say.

0:02:580:03:00

Makes for better photos.

0:03:000:03:01

-If it's quirky you want, I'm heading up to Perrott's Folly later. Fancy coming along?

-Really?

0:03:010:03:06

My pleasure. Just don't fall in.

0:03:060:03:09

-MOBILE PHONE RINGS Someone's keen.

-Let's hope it's you.

0:03:120:03:16

-Always raring to go.

-What are you wearing?

0:03:160:03:20

Isn't that meant to be my line?

0:03:220:03:23

Your brown jacket?

0:03:230:03:25

I want you to feel inside the pocket.

0:03:250:03:28

-A pebble?

-Think you can follow my trail?

0:03:350:03:39

That depends where it leads.

0:03:390:03:41

-Wherever I want it to.

-Really?

0:03:410:03:43

Really.

0:03:430:03:45

I'll be in touch.

0:03:450:03:48

KNOCKING AT DOOR

0:04:100:04:12

KNOCKING CONTINUES

0:04:180:04:20

You look awful. What's happened? Yeah, yeah, yeah.

0:04:240:04:28

I just couldn't believe it when I got Jimmi's message.

0:04:380:04:41

Harcourt actually took you hostage?

0:04:410:04:45

Thank goodness the police have arrested him.

0:04:450:04:48

Oh, Cherry, I'm...

0:04:520:04:54

-Don't touch me Julia, OK?

-What?

0:04:540:04:58

You knew, didn't you?

0:04:580:05:00

-What?

-You knew that Eva wasn't dead.

0:05:000:05:04

Did you paint these?

0:05:140:05:16

When you live on a narrowboat, there's lots of hours to fill.

0:05:160:05:20

Seriously, how could you not love all of this?

0:05:200:05:23

There's lots of things I miss.

0:05:230:05:24

A bath.

0:05:240:05:26

Heat. Space.

0:05:260:05:28

There must be some good points.

0:05:280:05:30

Morning.

0:05:300:05:32

The people are really friendly.

0:05:320:05:34

Canal etiquette. Everyone smiles, even if they hate you.

0:05:340:05:38

It's not the done thing to kick off.

0:05:380:05:40

Ah, for pity's sake! Haven't they heard of paths?

0:05:420:05:46

Think it's funny, do you?

0:05:460:05:50

-Are you all right?

-Not really.

0:05:500:05:52

She wasn't due until this afternoon.

0:05:520:05:54

Cherry?

0:06:030:06:06

Please let me explain.

0:06:060:06:09

I'm sorry. I really am sorry. It's just, I couldn't say anything. Neither of us could.

0:06:100:06:15

You know, no-one could have predicted this and even if you'd known you'd...

0:06:160:06:20

Julia, if I had known, then I could have protected myself.

0:06:200:06:24

-It's not quite that simple.

-Julia, he let me walk straight into this.

0:06:240:06:29

-He believed he was doing the right thing.

-Right for who, Julia?

-For you.

0:06:290:06:32

Look, even if he had told you about Eva,

0:06:320:06:36

that would have put your life in more danger.

0:06:360:06:39

You could have become a target, as well.

0:06:390:06:41

I was living with him, Julia. We were getting married. I was always going to be a target.

0:06:410:06:46

Yes, I know, but he was trying to shield you from that.

0:06:460:06:49

He was trying to protect you.

0:06:490:06:51

No, Julia, he wasn't trying to protect me.

0:06:510:06:53

He was trying to protect Eva. I was never top of the list.

0:06:530:06:58

Cherry...

0:06:580:06:59

So, all this time, you've known Eva was alive? That must have killed you.

0:06:590:07:03

You couldn't even speak to her?

0:07:030:07:05

Didn't know where she was.

0:07:050:07:08

And now Cherry's left you?

0:07:080:07:11

It's just a reaction.

0:07:140:07:16

After everything he's been through?

0:07:160:07:18

None of this is Cherry's fault.

0:07:180:07:20

So, what happens now?

0:07:220:07:24

This time yesterday, I had a fiancee.

0:07:250:07:29

She'll come back, mate. It's Cherry.

0:07:290:07:31

That's the thing about secrets, completely corrosive.

0:07:310:07:36

Avoid them at all costs.

0:07:360:07:39

-You must have been two, or was it three years above me at school?

-Four.

0:07:440:07:48

Breakfast's on its way.

0:07:480:07:50

Great, thanks.

0:07:500:07:52

-So, what do you do?

-Linguist.

0:07:520:07:55

She's fluent in five languages.

0:07:550:07:58

You still up for a crash course in Italian?

0:07:580:08:01

Don't tell me you've turned it down.

0:08:010:08:04

-Mother, it's the job you've always wanted.

-I'm not sure.

-It's been three months!

0:08:040:08:08

-I've still got things to do.

-Well, why do you think I'm here?

0:08:080:08:11

Where is the old sod, anyway?

0:08:110:08:14

Under the sink.

0:08:140:08:16

My husband, Ernest. He had dementia.

0:08:220:08:25

-He died in June.

-I'm sorry.

0:08:250:08:29

Right, let's sort this out once and for all!

0:08:290:08:32

When are you going to scatter these, sell the boat, and get on with the rest of your life?

0:08:320:08:37

'Hi, this is Cherry.

0:08:470:08:49

'Leave a message. Bye!'

0:08:490:08:50

She's got a right to be angry.

0:08:560:08:58

You've been living in this tin can for more than a year.

0:09:060:09:09

It's not that bad.

0:09:090:09:11

You only did it because Dad insisted. You gave up the house, your job...

0:09:110:09:14

I'm not ready to leave.

0:09:140:09:17

-Thanks.

-He's dead, move on, get over it.

-Where's your respect?

0:09:170:09:23

-That disappeared a long time ago.

-Should I put the kettle on again?

0:09:230:09:26

-Do you want more tea?

-What I want is for you to start living your own life. That job's perfect.

0:09:260:09:32

A photography lecturer, based in Venice.

0:09:320:09:35

Wow, that sounds amazing!

0:09:350:09:37

-Apparently not.

-Ann! We've got a guest.

0:09:370:09:41

-Sorry.

-Don't stop on my account. I'm used to family drama.

0:09:410:09:45

Spare me the teenage angst. You know nothing about our family.

0:09:450:09:48

Can I ask, actually, why are you here?

0:09:480:09:50

Because your mum invited me. And for your information, I'm not a kid. I know exactly what's going on.

0:09:500:09:55

-Really?

-Really.

-Right.

0:09:550:09:58

And?

0:09:580:10:00

And I know a bully when I see one!

0:10:000:10:03

I'll put that kettle on.

0:10:060:10:08

You know, what hurts the most...

0:10:510:10:54

..is that he didn't trust me.

0:10:560:10:58

-That's not true.

-No?

-No.

0:10:580:11:00

We tell each other everything.

0:11:000:11:02

Problems, dreams...

0:11:030:11:06

I've got a patient from hell.

0:11:060:11:08

-But none of that matters now because he didn't tell me the one thing he should have told me.

-He couldn't.

0:11:080:11:14

-Why?

-Because the police wouldn't let him.

0:11:140:11:16

-He couldn't tell anybody.

-He told you.

0:11:160:11:19

Not by choice, I can assure you.

0:11:190:11:21

He was just trying to make the best of an impossible situation.

0:11:230:11:26

Maybe.

0:11:260:11:28

Or maybe he still loves her.

0:11:310:11:33

I won't be the consolation prize.

0:11:380:11:40

Jimmi's crazy about you, everybody can see that.

0:11:470:11:49

-I've been here before, Julia, remember?

-Oh, come on, Scott was completely different.

0:11:490:11:54

Jimmi lied to me. He knows I can't handle that.

0:11:540:11:57

He didn't have a choice.

0:11:570:11:59

He did, Julia. He chose her.

0:11:590:12:01

He's marrying you, Cherry.

0:12:010:12:04

Don't you think he deserves a chance?

0:12:040:12:07

I can't risk it.

0:12:070:12:09

You should be going, because you're going to be late for work.

0:12:090:12:12

Look, if there's anything at all that I can do...

0:12:170:12:19

Please, just promise me that you'll take things slowly, OK?

0:12:190:12:25

-Jimmi!

-Tell him to go away!

0:12:280:12:32

Cherry, please, just let me talk.

0:12:320:12:34

-What, so you can lie to me again?

-I was wrong, I know that.

0:12:340:12:37

-It's all an act.

-Let me explain.

-Just go away and leave me alone.

0:12:370:12:40

I think it might be best.

0:12:400:12:43

Just give her a bit of space.

0:12:430:12:45

Do you still love him?

0:12:560:12:58

He's the only man I've ever really loved.

0:13:020:13:05

Then this shouldn't be over.

0:13:060:13:09

Useless thing. Just work!

0:13:150:13:18

Ernest's pride and joy.

0:13:180:13:21

He liked pretending he was still in the Navy.

0:13:210:13:24

If it ever decides to work again...

0:13:270:13:30

..we might just make it to the folly.

0:13:320:13:34

Are you sure? If you'd rather I went...

0:13:340:13:37

You can't bail out on me now. You're my escape plan.

0:13:370:13:41

I thought that was Venice.

0:13:410:13:42

No. That's just a dream.

0:13:420:13:46

This is reality.

0:13:460:13:47

You wouldn't see me for dust if I got offered a job like that.

0:13:470:13:51

Can we just leave it, please?

0:13:510:13:53

Is this Ernest?

0:13:590:14:02

Yes.

0:14:020:14:04

We met on a beach.

0:14:040:14:06

I'd gone to throw my message in a bottle out to sea.

0:14:060:14:10

We got talking.

0:14:100:14:13

Never did throw it in.

0:14:130:14:16

You old romantic.

0:14:160:14:18

He was at sea for nearly 40 years.

0:14:190:14:22

Wow. That must have been difficult.

0:14:220:14:25

When he came home on leave, I always wanted everything to be perfect.

0:14:250:14:30

No pressure, then!

0:14:300:14:32

Sometimes.

0:14:320:14:34

It was easier just to let him have his own way.

0:14:340:14:37

What, you? Demanding Drake, a push-over?

0:14:370:14:40

-Surely not.

-Only with Ernest.

0:14:400:14:43

I suppose that's why Ann always felt protective.

0:14:430:14:47

She's a good girl, you know?

0:14:480:14:51

Don't let her convince you otherwise.

0:14:510:14:53

Right, let's give her another go.

0:14:570:14:59

You untie me at the front.

0:14:590:15:01

-I take it there's a point in you summoning me here today?

-Eight, nine, 10.

0:15:040:15:09

-Yes!

-Well?

0:15:110:15:13

Yes, there's a point.

0:15:130:15:15

I've made a decision.

0:15:150:15:16

Push me off when you're ready, Imogen.

0:15:160:15:20

-You're not going to Italy, are you?

-No, I'm going to France.

0:15:200:15:23

Your Dad had been planning a special trip.

0:15:230:15:27

He always wanted to take the boat across the Channel.

0:15:270:15:30

I'm still doing it.

0:15:300:15:32

I'll scatter your dad's ashes at sea.

0:15:320:15:35

OK, Imogen, let's go.

0:15:350:15:38

Suits you.

0:16:060:16:09

Actually, no,

0:16:090:16:10

-I'm not really into this New Agey stuff.

-You said you'd try.

0:16:100:16:14

-Yeah, but science does it for me, you know?

-It's part science.

0:16:140:16:20

And the other part?

0:16:200:16:21

Helps you relax, detox, heal.

0:16:210:16:25

Doesn't your body deserve to be pampered?

0:16:250:16:28

Yeah, it kind of feels better when it's in control.

0:16:280:16:32

Not too old to learn something new, are you?

0:16:330:16:37

That depends on what you had in mind.

0:16:370:16:40

The ultimate journey.

0:16:400:16:42

Mind, body and soul.

0:16:430:16:45

Will you just stop and listen!

0:16:570:16:59

I don't want to go over it again.

0:16:590:17:01

-Emphasize the height. Lose the clutter.

-You're crazy!

0:17:010:17:05

-I've made up my mind.

-It's insanity.

0:17:050:17:08

It's what Ernest would have wanted.

0:17:080:17:11

Exactly! You don't have to do everything that he wants anymore.

0:17:110:17:14

Perrott built this place to keep an eye on his wife's grave.

0:17:140:17:18

It was 10 miles away. He needed the height.

0:17:180:17:21

The things people do for the dead.

0:17:210:17:23

Mum, please, just talk to me.

0:17:240:17:27

Why are you so determined to do this?

0:17:270:17:30

You never went on any of Dad's Navy trips.

0:17:300:17:34

The sea brought me and your dad together. That's where I want to say goodbye.

0:17:340:17:38

-It's dangerous.

-The boat's completely watertight, everything's prepared.

0:17:380:17:42

What about the weather? It's unpredictable. Anything could happen.

0:17:420:17:45

I'll wait until it's calm.

0:17:450:17:47

You won't change my mind. I'm doing this for Ernest.

0:17:470:17:50

After the way he treated you, you'd seriously risk your life for him?

0:17:500:17:55

-He was my husband.

-He was a control freak.

-He looked after me.

0:17:550:17:58

He bullied you and you never fought back.

0:17:580:18:01

I couldn't. I wouldn't. I loved him.

0:18:010:18:05

He didn't deserve your love.

0:18:050:18:07

-Why not?

-Because he lied to you.

0:18:070:18:10

It wasn't old age that gave him dementia. It was syphilis.

0:18:100:18:16

I need to speak to Mum.

0:18:280:18:30

Alone.

0:18:300:18:32

I hope she's all right.

0:18:320:18:34

Sadie, are you OK?

0:18:400:18:43

Not really.

0:18:430:18:45

I'm pathetic.

0:18:450:18:47

I can lecture 30 opinionated art students.

0:18:470:18:50

When it comes to my own daughter...

0:18:500:18:52

Just point and shoot. That's what you always taught us.

0:18:520:18:56

Don't spend ages setting up a shot.

0:18:560:18:59

There's something Ann doesn't know.

0:19:000:19:02

Well, then you need to talk to her, change what happens next.

0:19:020:19:06

-What are you doing?

-What you should have done three months ago.

-Please, Ann, stop!

0:19:120:19:16

You don't need these anymore. You don't have to go on this stupid sea thing.

0:19:160:19:21

-I do.

-Didn't you hear what I said?

0:19:210:19:24

You owe Dad nothing.

0:19:240:19:26

I owe him everything!

0:19:260:19:28

I already knew he was ill.

0:19:290:19:31

It was me who gave him the disease.

0:19:310:19:34

# I'd go hungry, I'd go black and blue

0:19:430:19:47

# I'd go crawling down the avenue

0:19:490:19:54

# Though there's nothing that I wouldn't do

0:19:560:20:00

# To make you feel my love... #

0:20:020:20:05

PHONE RINGS

0:20:060:20:09

'Hello!

0:20:090:20:10

-'This is Jimmi.'

-'And Cherry!'

-'Sorry, we can't take your call. Just leave a message. Bye!'

0:20:100:20:15

'Hey, it's me.'

0:20:170:20:19

I never wanted to lie to you.

0:20:190:20:22

'When Eva left,

0:20:250:20:29

'I didn't have a choice and I hated it.

0:20:290:20:31

'Then there was you.

0:20:310:20:34

'And you made everything OK.

0:20:340:20:37

'If I'd known any of this was going to happen...'

0:20:370:20:40

Cherry, I don't blame you for hating me, but, please, don't doubt what we had, OK?

0:20:400:20:46

Because that was real.

0:20:460:20:48

I love you.

0:20:510:20:53

And I'm sorry.

0:20:540:20:56

# To make you feel my love. #

0:20:570:21:02

I'm sorry.

0:21:140:21:15

It was 15 years ago, a drunken, stupid mistake. When I realized

0:21:170:21:23

that I'd caught something, I saw a doctor.

0:21:230:21:27

I was lucky.

0:21:270:21:29

Did you tell Dad?

0:21:290:21:31

Just hoped I hadn't passed it on.

0:21:310:21:34

Hoped?!

0:21:340:21:36

We're talking about a sexually transmitted disease. You were playing with his life.

0:21:360:21:41

I was wrong.

0:21:410:21:44

I just hoped it wouldn't happen.

0:21:440:21:45

So, when did you realise it had?

0:21:480:21:50

The confusion? The rash? Or was it the sores that gave it away?

0:21:500:21:54

-Does it matter?

-Yes!

0:21:540:21:57

It matters.

0:21:570:21:59

I told you I was worried about Dad.

0:21:590:22:02

I knew it wasn't just dementia.

0:22:020:22:04

So did you.

0:22:060:22:07

What good would telling you have done?

0:22:070:22:10

It was already too late by then.

0:22:100:22:12

I know.

0:22:120:22:14

It's amazing what the internet can reveal.

0:22:160:22:19

Type in a few symptoms, press a few buttons,

0:22:190:22:22

hey presto! Your dad's in the late stages of syphilis and your whole world falls apart!

0:22:220:22:27

I couldn't even admit it to myself.

0:22:270:22:30

If you had told me, I wouldn't have confronted him.

0:22:300:22:32

I forced him to admit there'd been other women.

0:22:340:22:38

You didn't know?

0:22:400:22:41

Dad's Navy life was certainly eventful.

0:22:430:22:45

Why do you think Dad stopped speaking to me?

0:22:500:22:53

I never even got to say goodbye.

0:22:540:22:57

I think I've died and gone to Heaven.

0:23:060:23:08

Nirvana.

0:23:100:23:12

Bless you.

0:23:120:23:14

Makes you feel beautiful, doesn't it?

0:23:180:23:20

Thank you.

0:23:200:23:23

I didn't know what I was missing.

0:23:230:23:26

So, you don't mind losing control?

0:23:260:23:30

If you can do it, I can.

0:23:310:23:35

Hey, I'm not a control freak!

0:23:350:23:38

Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha!

0:23:380:23:40

All the phone calls, the notes, the "follow my trail"?

0:23:400:23:46

OK, maybe a little.

0:23:460:23:49

Maybe I like taking the lead.

0:23:510:23:54

Doesn't everyone sometimes?

0:23:550:23:58

Mmm, it's so much better when you learn to let go.

0:23:580:24:02

Why haven't you left?

0:24:080:24:10

I wanted to make sure that Sadie was OK.

0:24:100:24:12

She's in there.

0:24:120:24:15

You've got me all wrong, you know. I'm not like my dad.

0:24:150:24:18

I just thought that your mum needed someone on her side.

0:24:180:24:21

Me, too.

0:24:210:24:23

How wrong was I?

0:24:230:24:25

What are you doing?

0:24:250:24:27

Imogen's right - I can't change the past,

0:24:270:24:30

but I can change what happens next.

0:24:300:24:33

So, here's to my new job

0:24:350:24:38

and laying the past to rest.

0:24:380:24:41

I didn't know how to talk to Ernest, but that's no excuse.

0:24:410:24:46

You shouldn't have had to do it for me.

0:24:460:24:48

-I'm sorry.

-Are you sure?

0:24:480:24:51

Bye, Dad.

0:25:010:25:03

I'll miss you, too.

0:25:030:25:04

No, wait! I can't. It's not right.

0:25:060:25:10

Your father belongs at sea.

0:25:100:25:12

I owe him that much.

0:25:120:25:15

I'm still doing the trip.

0:25:150:25:16

For pity's sake!

0:25:160:25:18

Use this. Now you're going to Venice, put the ashes in here.

0:25:180:25:23

Write a note, asking whoever finds it to throw it back in, that way the adventure continues.

0:25:230:25:29

But Ernest really wanted to take the boat to sea.

0:25:290:25:32

But you don't.

0:25:320:25:34

OK.

0:25:360:25:37

On one condition. I'll ask whoever finds it to send me a postcard.

0:25:390:25:43

At least I'll finally get to know what he's up to.

0:25:430:25:48

I'll drink to that.

0:25:480:25:50

-Cheers!

-Cheers!

-Cheers!

0:25:500:25:53

Hi.

0:26:060:26:07

Should I get rid of that?

0:26:110:26:14

Thanks.

0:26:140:26:16

So, I've been thinking, this Harcourt character.

0:26:220:26:26

He's in custody, yeah?

0:26:260:26:29

So, does that mean Eva can stop hiding? She can come back?

0:26:290:26:35

He's the father of this child, you get me?

0:26:430:26:45

It could be coming any time now.

0:26:450:26:46

Your girlfriend is now your career advisor, is that it?

0:26:460:26:49

I want to be about for my kid, yeah? Not working all hours.

0:26:490:26:52

I can have you out that door so fast you won't have time to cry to Mummy.

0:26:520:26:55

I'm Peggy Hardcastle

0:26:550:26:57

and I'll be your dedicated midwife

0:26:570:26:59

-throughout your pregnancy.

-Really?

0:26:590:27:02

-This is my class!

-You're ruining it.

-Shut up, you skinny bitch!
