BRIEF KNOCK

0:00:360:00:38

-Hi, Aggie.

-Oh, sorry I'm late, love. Our bleeding Leslie again!

0:00:380:00:41

-QUIETLY:

-Sorry!

-It's all right.

0:00:410:00:44

Any change?

0:00:470:00:48

They don't think he'll be long now.

0:00:490:00:51

Then again, they told me two months ago

0:00:520:00:54

he wouldn't survive the weekend and he's still hanging on.

0:00:540:00:57

He doesn't want to leave you, love.

0:00:590:01:01

You wouldn't believe it was the same man, would you?

0:01:020:01:04

I mean, just look at him.

0:01:040:01:06

Just skin and bone.

0:01:070:01:08

It's just a shell, love.

0:01:080:01:10

His spirit's just as strong as ever.

0:01:100:01:13

Eh, you...

0:01:130:01:14

When you finally do get up there...

0:01:160:01:18

You'd better give Lenny and my mam

0:01:190:01:21

a massive hug from me.

0:01:210:01:23

D'you hear me?

0:01:240:01:25

You heard from Michael?

0:01:280:01:30

He's had to go to London for some big meeting,

0:01:300:01:32

he couldn't get out of it.

0:01:320:01:34

HE GASPS

0:01:350:01:37

You're all right.

0:01:370:01:38

You're all right.

0:01:380:01:40

You're all right. Mike, we're here.

0:01:400:01:42

Mike, we're here, love.

0:01:420:01:44

We're here.

0:01:440:01:46

We're here with you.

0:01:460:01:47

LABOURED BREATHING

0:01:470:01:48

You're all right.

0:01:480:01:50

You're all right.

0:01:500:01:52

PHONE RINGS

0:02:160:02:18

Hi, love.

0:02:240:02:25

Hiya, Mum.

0:02:250:02:27

Just... Just a sec.

0:02:270:02:28

Sorry about that, love, I've come out into the corridor.

0:02:360:02:39

-Where are you?

-Just on my way to Euston now.

0:02:390:02:41

-When's the next train?

-Just after eight, should get me in about 10:30.

0:02:410:02:45

How is he?

0:02:450:02:47

Still hanging on.

0:02:470:02:49

Just.

0:02:490:02:50

I'll be there as soon as I can, Mum.

0:02:500:02:52

-OK. Right, well, I'd better get back in.

-I'll see you soon. Ta-ra.

0:02:520:02:57

Ta-ra, love.

0:02:570:02:58

CONTINUOUS BEEP

0:03:060:03:10

Oh, no!

0:03:140:03:16

No!

0:03:170:03:19

NO!

0:03:190:03:21

Oh, no!

0:03:230:03:25

SHE EXHALES

0:03:280:03:30

I still can't believe I wasn't with him at the end.

0:04:030:04:06

It happens a lot. You'd be surprised.

0:04:070:04:09

I must have been out of that room just for two minutes, that's all.

0:04:110:04:14

Don't beat yourself up.

0:04:140:04:16

They often wait for loved ones to leave before they feel they can go.

0:04:160:04:19

You couldn't have done more for him.

0:04:200:04:22

I'm so sorry.

0:04:240:04:26

I can't believe he's actually gone.

0:04:450:04:46

No more suffering.

0:04:460:04:48

Go on, go a bit closer.

0:04:510:04:53

-I'm scared.

-What are you scared of?

0:04:540:04:56

You know what a wind-up merchant he was.

0:04:560:04:59

-I'm half expecting him to jump up or something.

-Don't be daft!

0:04:590:05:02

Go on, it's OK.

0:05:030:05:05

Bye, Dad.

0:05:170:05:19

Only me!

0:05:440:05:45

Look what was on the path.

0:05:470:05:49

It's a sign, girl.

0:05:500:05:51

He's with you.

0:05:530:05:54

They're here.

0:05:560:05:57

MUTED CONVERSATION

0:06:030:06:06

-I didn't even know your Leslie was pregnant again.

-I did tell you.

0:06:090:06:13

You never. How many grandkids will that be now?

0:06:130:06:16

This'll be number seven. I don't even know why they bother

0:06:160:06:19

having them. They just dump them on soft girl here half the time.

0:06:190:06:22

-She loves it really.

-Mm!

-What about you?

0:06:220:06:25

-Are you seeing anyone?

-No.

0:06:250:06:28

-No, no, no. All work and no play for me.

-Tell you what, love.

0:06:280:06:32

I wish all my kids were gay.

0:06:320:06:34

I might have a bit of bloody peace, then!

0:06:340:06:36

Wasn't it an amazing turnout?

0:06:420:06:44

Ah, they really did him proud.

0:06:450:06:47

GLASSES CHINK

0:07:020:07:04

LAUGHTER

0:07:120:07:14

No, but the best one...

0:07:160:07:18

The best one was when we went to the pictures to see The Exorcist,

0:07:180:07:21

-do you remember?

-Oh, wait till you hear this!

-Oh,

0:07:210:07:24

how petrified were we leaving that cinema?

0:07:240:07:26

So there was no way I was going back to that house on my own.

0:07:260:07:29

So I said she could come back to ours.

0:07:290:07:31

You know what your dad was like.

0:07:310:07:33

Oh, he thought it was hilarious that we were so scared.

0:07:330:07:35

So he goes up to bed and we stayed up having a drink and a gab...

0:07:350:07:39

After a while, I go upstairs.

0:07:390:07:41

And I'm just about to get into bed

0:07:410:07:44

when I hear this...

0:07:440:07:46

weird scratching sound coming from the wardrobe.

0:07:460:07:49

Well, you can imagine me, I completely froze.

0:07:490:07:52

Then, the next thing, there's this almighty bang

0:07:520:07:55

and both the doors burst open!

0:07:550:07:57

-Honest to God, you should have heard her!

-I absolutely...

0:07:590:08:02

I swear to God, you could hear her in Outer Mongolia!

0:08:020:08:05

And there's your father, your father,

0:08:050:08:07

creased up double in absolute hysterics.

0:08:070:08:10

Must've been sitting in that wardrobe for hours

0:08:100:08:13

waiting for her to go to bed!

0:08:130:08:14

-I'm surprised I didn't drop dead on the spot.

-He loved winding her up.

0:08:140:08:17

Is it any wonder I'm a nervous wreck?!

0:08:170:08:19

I dread to think what mayhem he'll be causing up there now.

0:08:190:08:23

God!

0:08:230:08:24

Give us that.

0:08:240:08:25

Oh, God!

0:08:250:08:27

MUSIC: For The Good Times by Perry Como

0:08:280:08:32

# Don't look so sad

0:08:430:08:45

# I know it's over

0:08:480:08:51

# But life goes on

0:08:540:08:57

# And this ol' world

0:08:570:08:59

# Will keep on turning

0:09:000:09:03

# Let's just be glad we had some time

0:09:050:09:11

# To spend together

0:09:110:09:14

# There's no need to watch the bridges that we're burning

0:09:160:09:23

# Lay your head

0:09:260:09:29

# Upon my pillow... #

0:09:310:09:33

Here y'are, love.

0:09:350:09:36

He hasn't been home, you know, since the funeral, Michael.

0:09:380:09:42

He's been away in London for a few days with work,

0:09:420:09:44

then Frankfurt, then...

0:09:440:09:47

-Delhi.

-Oh, he's done so well for himself, hasn't he?

-Mm.

0:09:470:09:51

I suppose I should be grateful that he's getting on with his life.

0:09:530:09:57

People grieve in all different kinds of ways, you know.

0:09:570:09:59

-Yeah.

-How about you?

0:10:010:10:03

How have you been?

0:10:040:10:05

Oh, you know.

0:10:070:10:08

One minute, I think I'm doing OK and the next minute I'm running

0:10:080:10:11

out of the shop in floods of tears cos they're playing a sad song.

0:10:110:10:14

I wish I could say it gets easier.

0:10:150:10:17

I went to see the doctor yesterday.

0:10:180:10:21

She wanted to put me on antidepressants.

0:10:210:10:23

Whatever gets you through.

0:10:230:10:25

I'm heartbroken, I'm not depressed

0:10:260:10:28

and I don't want anything just to mask the pain.

0:10:280:10:31

I met him when I was 15!

0:10:340:10:36

I've never known anything else.

0:10:370:10:39

I...

0:10:420:10:43

I just can't get my head around the fact that I'm never going to

0:10:440:10:47

speak to him again.

0:10:470:10:49

What would you say to him if you could?

0:10:490:10:52

I...

0:10:520:10:53

I'd tell him I was so sorry that I...

0:10:530:10:57

wasn't with him at the end.

0:10:570:10:59

Who's to say you can't still speak to him?

0:10:590:11:01

Remember when Lenny died?

0:11:030:11:05

I started going to that Spiritualist Church in town with Josie Kane.

0:11:050:11:10

You know what I think about all that.

0:11:100:11:12

Yeah, and I felt exactly the same.

0:11:120:11:14

Till he came through.

0:11:150:11:17

And I can't tell you how moving it was.

0:11:180:11:20

I can't believe you've talked me into this.

0:11:270:11:30

Come on, it's only a laugh.

0:11:300:11:31

I'm supposed to be a good Catholic.

0:11:330:11:35

Yeah, so are half the other people in there an' all!

0:11:350:11:38

Oh, look...

0:11:380:11:39

I know you're scared to come,

0:11:390:11:41

but I can guarantee the spirits will be with us tonight.

0:11:410:11:44

Vodka and Coke!

0:11:440:11:46

Oh, come on. Let's get in there, before you change your mind.

0:11:470:11:50

I'd like to welcome you all here tonight.

0:11:550:11:58

My name is Doreen Alan and I'm the chair of this spiritualist church.

0:11:580:12:02

Tonight, we're joined by Mary Combs, one of our regular visiting mediums.

0:12:020:12:07

Now, before we start,

0:12:080:12:10

if I could just ask you all to bow your heads in prayer.

0:12:100:12:13

Dear Lord, we pray for those who've recently made their transition

0:12:160:12:21

back home to the spirit world.

0:12:210:12:24

And we wish them well with their progression.

0:12:250:12:27

We also remember the animal kingdom, who give us

0:12:280:12:31

so much love and devotion and ask so little in return.

0:12:310:12:36

And lastly, my friends, ask for healing for yourselves.

0:12:380:12:42

For any physical ailment you're suffering from or any

0:12:430:12:47

stresses of the mind you're going through.

0:12:470:12:49

Ask for healing.

0:12:500:12:52

Ask for peace of mind.

0:12:530:12:55

Thank you.

0:12:570:12:58

Now, any newcomers in tonight?

0:12:590:13:01

-Don't say anything.

-Oh, two or three. Now...

0:13:030:13:06

If a spirit does come forward for you...

0:13:070:13:10

..we just ask you not to talk about it until after the service is over.

0:13:110:13:15

I appreciate how exciting it is to get a message...

0:13:170:13:19

-MOUTHS: (Strong!)

-..chattering away,

0:13:190:13:22

Mary might think she's hearing spirits, when it's just you lot!

0:13:220:13:25

We always like to start with a song and tonight,

0:13:270:13:30

I've selected hymn number 17.

0:13:300:13:33

MUSIC STRIKES UP

0:13:350:13:38

Hymn?

0:13:380:13:39

# I closed my eyes

0:13:450:13:49

# Drew back the curtain

0:13:490:13:52

# To see for certain

0:13:530:13:56

# What I thought I knew

0:13:560:14:01

# Far, far away

0:14:010:14:03

# Someone was weeping

0:14:040:14:08

# And the world was sleeping

0:14:080:14:12

# Any dream will do. #

0:14:120:14:15

Hello, good evening, everyone.

0:14:160:14:19

OK, so how do I work? Well...

0:14:190:14:21

Spirit test us every day and every single way, believe you me.

0:14:220:14:26

So sometimes I'll go directly to one person, sometimes I'll get

0:14:270:14:31

more collective information and then I'll just push it out

0:14:310:14:34

into the congregation and I'll see which of you put up your hand, OK?

0:14:340:14:39

Now, remember - it isn't just about the tears that we feel

0:14:400:14:43

we need to shed, OK?

0:14:430:14:44

It is perfectly fine to have a little laugh and a giggle,

0:14:440:14:48

cos I like to bring out that feeling of love

0:14:480:14:50

and laughter in people, you know?

0:14:500:14:53

Right, should we get started? Ho-ho-ho-ho...

0:14:530:14:56

I think we've got some lovely bubbly characters coming through.

0:14:560:15:00

In fact, I think the Irish are on their way, to tell you the truth.

0:15:000:15:04

Um...

0:15:040:15:05

You. You, there, in the furry jacket, yeah. You.

0:15:070:15:11

As I said that, did you feel... the connection to the Irish?

0:15:110:15:14

No.

0:15:150:15:17

Oh, you don't understand it?

0:15:170:15:19

No.

0:15:190:15:21

I can really feel a connection to Ireland around here.

0:15:210:15:24

Um, what about you ladies either side?

0:15:240:15:26

-You can understand it?

-My husband's family is from Belfast.

0:15:280:15:32

That's it.

0:15:320:15:33

You see, initially I was drawn to this lady,

0:15:330:15:36

but there was such a strong feeling of Ireland around here.

0:15:360:15:40

There's this feeling of needing...

0:15:400:15:41

..activity and fun and laughter for you.

0:15:430:15:46

Do you know why I'm saying this to you right now?

0:15:460:15:49

There's a lovely lady drawing close.

0:15:500:15:53

And she's telling me she's a mother. Do you understand?

0:15:530:15:57

A mother in spirit. She's standing to your left there.

0:15:570:16:00

Ah, look. I can see you're shedding a tear.

0:16:010:16:04

She's telling me you've shed a lot more tears than this over

0:16:040:16:07

the past few years, haven't you?

0:16:070:16:10

She's acknowledging that, right?

0:16:100:16:11

And, I... Am I feeling a lung condition?

0:16:130:16:16

-Not my mum, no.

-No? You can't take that?

0:16:170:16:20

Oh, she's talking about the dishes,

0:16:210:16:24

she's saying, "Get those dishes done!"

0:16:240:16:26

Do you understand why I'm saying that to you? The sink!

0:16:260:16:29

Thought I was looking at my own kitchen, there!

0:16:290:16:33

Listen, try and get that done, will you, please?

0:16:330:16:35

Cos I'm trying to help release the pressure for you. OK?

0:16:350:16:38

God bless.

0:16:410:16:42

I mean, who hasn't got a load of unwashed dishes sitting in the sink?

0:16:480:16:53

Oh!

0:16:530:16:54

But did you see her eyes fill up when she talked about her mam?

0:16:540:16:58

The mother who she said had a lung condition when she never?

0:16:590:17:02

Well, it can't be easy for her.

0:17:020:17:05

With all those different messages coming through from all sides.

0:17:050:17:08

SHE SCOFFS

0:17:090:17:11

DOOR CLOSES

0:17:260:17:28

Hiya, Mum - only me.

0:17:280:17:30

-I was beginning to get paranoid.

-Hm?

0:17:370:17:40

-I've lost count of the number of messages I've left.

-Oh!

0:17:400:17:44

Yeah, I'm sorry. It's just...

0:17:440:17:46

It's been so mental at work.

0:17:460:17:47

Oh...

0:17:490:17:51

Look what I found in his wardrobe.

0:17:530:17:54

Paid a fortune for that when we were in Prague.

0:17:570:18:01

Money well spent, I'd say!

0:18:010:18:03

I've lost count of the number of times he got Aggie with it!

0:18:030:18:06

Do you remember the wig, as well?

0:18:060:18:08

He bought that in Madrid.

0:18:100:18:11

He used to buy something daft every time we went away.

0:18:110:18:14

That wasn't cheap, either.

0:18:150:18:17

When we came home, he told Aggie he'd had a hair transplant,

0:18:180:18:21

the silly cow fell for it!

0:18:210:18:24

What do you think?

0:18:240:18:26

You're as cracked as he is.

0:18:280:18:30

-Have you seen much of Aggie?

-Yeah.

0:18:310:18:34

Yeah. Actually, I...

0:18:340:18:36

She dragged me along to this spiritualist church the other night.

0:18:360:18:39

Spiritualist church?

0:18:400:18:42

-Mm.

-You're not serious?

0:18:430:18:45

Oh, it was just a laugh.

0:18:450:18:46

Yeah, if you find exploiting vulnerable, grieving people funny.

0:18:460:18:49

I can just imagine what me dad'd say if he was still here.

0:18:490:18:52

Well, he's not here, is he?

0:18:520:18:54

-So you started sorting through his stuff, then?

-Um...

0:18:580:19:02

I've not really had chance.

0:19:020:19:04

Well, I'm off at the weekend, I could give you a hand if you like.

0:19:040:19:07

I was thinking maybe we could donate his clothes to a homeless

0:19:070:19:10

-shelter or something, what do you think?

-I can't really, this weekend.

0:19:100:19:14

OK.

0:19:140:19:15

When you're ready, just give us a shout.

0:19:170:19:19

I'd better get back.

0:19:200:19:21

OK. Don't stay away too long.

0:19:220:19:25

Yeah. And you...

0:19:250:19:27

..stay away from those spiritualist churches, you hear me?

0:19:280:19:31

SHE SIGHS

0:19:380:19:41

DOOR CLOSES

0:19:410:19:42

Right, lady in the middle, there. With the butterflies.

0:19:530:19:56

You are surrounded by children, absolutely loads of kids.

0:19:570:20:01

-Oh, yeah, yeah.

-Can you acknowledge where these children are from?

0:20:010:20:05

-I work with children.

-You work with them, yeah?

0:20:050:20:07

Well, you've got a lovely energy around you.

0:20:070:20:09

And the lady who's giving me information, she seems

0:20:090:20:13

like an older lady, I wouldn't say a mother, more of a grandmother.

0:20:130:20:16

She's been watching you.

0:20:180:20:19

And she's been watching the way you've been helping those children

0:20:190:20:22

and she's been watching the way you've been, um...

0:20:220:20:25

..an effective role model. She's giving me managerial terms here!

0:20:260:20:31

Are you a manager or something?

0:20:310:20:32

Well, I've just had a promotion, yeah.

0:20:320:20:35

Oh, brill!

0:20:350:20:36

I'm delighted! Oh, that's fab.

0:20:360:20:39

No wonder she's so chuffed.

0:20:390:20:41

You know, she showed me one of those football thingies - wahey!

0:20:410:20:44

It's funny, the things they show you.

0:20:450:20:47

Right.

0:20:480:20:49

Now...

0:20:490:20:51

Who is the lady who stands in front of the kitchen sink

0:20:510:20:54

looking down the garden and daydreaming?

0:20:540:20:57

QUIETLY: Sounds like me!

0:20:570:20:59

Is that yourself?

0:20:590:21:00

I can really feel that.

0:21:040:21:05

Yeah, it could be.

0:21:070:21:08

You know that song, For the Good Times?

0:21:110:21:13

I feel like I want to sing that to you,

0:21:130:21:15

but I'll spare you my shocking voice!

0:21:150:21:16

Have you been going down memory lane recently?

0:21:180:21:20

Just a little bit, yeah.

0:21:200:21:22

Yeah.

0:21:220:21:24

Those feelings that have been coming over your mind all the time,

0:21:240:21:27

they've been making you feel really low.

0:21:270:21:29

Well, I want to try and get you to concentrate on the love

0:21:300:21:34

side of things and the lessons you've learned to take forward.

0:21:340:21:37

Right, now...I'm getting a man.

0:21:410:21:44

And he feels like a large man.

0:21:440:21:46

I'm not being rude here, I don't mean fat,

0:21:460:21:48

I mean this man did proper manual labour.

0:21:480:21:52

-That's my... My husband.

-Is he in spirit?

0:21:540:21:57

He's telling me that he liked to have a drink after work, "Have a

0:21:590:22:02

"nice little drink", he's saying.

0:22:020:22:04

That was his "achievement", he's saying.

0:22:040:22:07

"That was my luxury, that was my luxury at the end of each day,

0:22:070:22:11

"I used to look forward to the end of work

0:22:110:22:13

"to going to the pub and having a pint."

0:22:130:22:15

Spending time with his friends.

0:22:150:22:17

Yeah, and there's a lot of people with him now.

0:22:180:22:21

Friends and family that passed a while ago.

0:22:210:22:23

So you were there when he passed, right?

0:22:250:22:28

Well, I was at the hospice, but I wasn't actually with him, no.

0:22:310:22:34

He's telling me something about

0:22:400:22:41

the holding of a hand as he passed into spirit?

0:22:410:22:44

I promised I'd be with him, but I...

0:22:460:22:48

No, no, no. He understands.

0:22:490:22:51

He's saying that he knew you were with him in here

0:22:510:22:55

and THAT is all that matters.

0:22:550:22:58

Please, let go of any more guilt.

0:22:580:23:00

OK?

0:23:000:23:02

Have you got any idea why they might be showing me computers?

0:23:040:23:07

My son's a graphic designer.

0:23:080:23:10

Oh, now he's more like his dad, isn't he, than you?

0:23:100:23:12

Right chip off the old block, eh?

0:23:120:23:15

They didn't see eye-to-eye all the time when he was on earth, did they?

0:23:150:23:18

But he wants him to know...

0:23:180:23:21

that he couldn't be any more proud of him

0:23:210:23:23

and he couldn't love him any more, OK?

0:23:230:23:26

-God bless you, love.

-Thank you.

0:23:280:23:31

Well, ladies and gentlemen, that's all we've got time for.

0:23:310:23:34

I'm really sorry that I couldn't reach everyone,

0:23:340:23:36

but I hope you took some comfort from somebody else's reading.

0:23:360:23:40

OK, let's bow our heads. Gracious divine spirits, we thank you...

0:23:400:23:43

My hands! I can't stop shaking!

0:23:480:23:50

I'm not surprised.

0:23:500:23:52

I've got us large ones, I think we need them after that.

0:23:520:23:55

And you know how he loved that song.

0:23:560:23:58

He loved everything by Perry Como because of his dad.

0:23:580:24:01

They're probably all up there right now,

0:24:010:24:03

having a good old sing-along with Perry himself!

0:24:030:24:05

As soon as she started talking to you,

0:24:050:24:08

I felt the hairs on my arms shoot up.

0:24:080:24:10

-It was like he was standing right there with us.

-I know.

0:24:100:24:13

-I felt the blood completely drain out of my body.

-See!

0:24:130:24:16

What did I tell you?

0:24:160:24:17

I know they're not always 100% accurate,

0:24:190:24:21

but there's definitely something in it.

0:24:210:24:23

-What about all the stuff about the hospice?

-I know!

0:24:230:24:26

I mean, how could she know that?

0:24:260:24:28

-How exactly did she put it, again?

-Well, she knew, didn't she?

0:24:280:24:31

She knew you'd been carrying around all this guilt

0:24:310:24:33

because you weren't with him when he passed.

0:24:330:24:36

I feel as if a great weight has been lifted off my shoulders.

0:24:360:24:40

Oh, I'm made up for you, girl.

0:24:400:24:41

I knew he'd come through for you, I just knew it.

0:24:430:24:45

-What about that stuff she said about Michael?

-Oh, yes, spot-on again.

0:24:450:24:49

I mean, we both know Mike struggled when he first came out,

0:24:490:24:53

but he worshipped the ground he walked on.

0:24:530:24:55

He'd have killed anybody who said a bad word against him.

0:24:550:24:58

-Are you going to say anything to him?

-Oh, I doubt it.

0:24:580:25:01

He can be very cynical about this sort of thing.

0:25:010:25:03

This is different, Kath.

0:25:030:25:05

Mike's passed on a message for him.

0:25:050:25:07

You can't keep that from him.

0:25:080:25:10

-That was lovely, I'm stuffed.

-No, leave it. Leave it.

0:25:150:25:18

-I'll do it later.

-Sure?

-Mm.

0:25:180:25:20

I went to mass this morning.

0:25:230:25:25

And I lit two candles, one from both of us.

0:25:250:25:28

I know you don't believe...

0:25:280:25:31

Still a nice thing to do, though, isn't it?

0:25:310:25:34

Talking of your dad...

0:25:340:25:36

There's something else I really need to tell you.

0:25:360:25:38

I know you think I'm gullible, but please just hear me out on this.

0:25:410:25:44

Go on.

0:25:440:25:45

Well, me and Aggie went back to the spiritualist church the other night.

0:25:480:25:52

And I'm starting to think there might be something in it.

0:25:520:25:55

I got a message from your dad.

0:25:570:25:59

Look, I, I've... I know what you're thinking.

0:26:000:26:03

But I swear to you, the sort of stuff she was saying,

0:26:030:26:06

she couldn't possibly have made it up.

0:26:060:26:08

Like what?

0:26:080:26:09

Well, loads of things. I mean, like...

0:26:100:26:12

She knew that you were a graphic designer.

0:26:120:26:15

What, she actually said that?

0:26:150:26:17

I can't remember the exact words she used,

0:26:170:26:19

but she definitely said you work with computers.

0:26:190:26:22

Who doesn't work with computers these days?

0:26:220:26:24

Hm.

0:26:240:26:26

Maybe, but...

0:26:260:26:27

But you should have heard how she described your dad to me.

0:26:280:26:30

She described his build, his job.

0:26:300:26:34

She even knew he went in the Farmer's every night.

0:26:340:26:36

She actually said the Farmer's?

0:26:360:26:39

Well, no, but she knew he loved a pint after work.

0:26:390:26:42

Well, find me a fella round here who doesn't!

0:26:420:26:44

Well, I'm just not explaining it very well, that's all.

0:26:440:26:48

Mum... They're just very good at reading people.

0:26:480:26:51

That's what they do.

0:26:510:26:52

Well, maybe.

0:26:530:26:54

But how does that explain her knowing about you and your dad?

0:26:540:26:57

-What about us?

-She knew that you didn't always see eye to eye.

0:26:570:27:01

Oh, wow, we she really that specific? You must have been blown away.

0:27:010:27:05

Oh, I knew you'd just laugh at me.

0:27:050:27:07

Mum, I'm not laughing at you.

0:27:070:27:08

I know you're grieving. But Dad's gone.

0:27:100:27:13

He's not sending you messages from beyond the grave.

0:27:130:27:15

-How can you be sure of that? How can anybody be?

-Because it's the truth.

0:27:150:27:19

No, it's your truth, but it's not mine!

0:27:190:27:22

Nobody knows for certain what happens to us when we die, nobody!

0:27:220:27:24

Yes, and the same goes for some so-called medium.

0:27:240:27:27

Oh, what would you know? Because your mind is closed.

0:27:270:27:30

You've never been there, you don't know what it's like.

0:27:300:27:33

Because I've never been so stupid or naive, Mum!

0:27:330:27:36

Oh, Mum, I'm sorry, I didn't mean...

0:27:360:27:38

Just forget it, I wish I'd never opened my mouth.

0:27:380:27:40

SINGING: # If you feel the wonder

0:27:460:27:48

0:27:510:27:54

# I have a dream. #

0:28:370:28:39

Er, £2, please, sir.

0:28:390:28:42

Oh, right, yeah. Course. Sorry.

0:28:420:28:45

-Thank you.

-Ta.

0:28:460:28:48

Thank you, everyone.

0:28:480:28:50

As I explained earlier, we were supposed to be joined

0:28:530:28:56

tonight by our guest medium Mark Jenkins, but unfortunately,

0:28:560:29:01

he had to cancel due to unforeseen circumstances.

0:29:010:29:05

But I am delighted to say that the ever reliable Mary Coombs has

0:29:050:29:10

come to our rescue once again.

0:29:100:29:12

-Hello!

-APPLAUSE

0:29:120:29:15

What is going on with this weather, you don't know

0:29:160:29:19

whether to take out your brolly or your bikini, do you?

0:29:190:29:22

Anybody get caught in that downpour earlier? How horrible was that?

0:29:220:29:26

Well, I was in the car, luckily, but my little windscreen wipers

0:29:260:29:29

were going like the clappers all the way here.

0:29:290:29:32

Now, speaking of cars, I think

0:29:320:29:33

somebody might be having a bit of an issue with theirs.

0:29:330:29:36

-Mine needs an MOT!

-That might be it!

0:29:360:29:39

Well, look, it's not a big thing,

0:29:390:29:41

it's just a little blessing,

0:29:410:29:43

but get it sorted out.

0:29:430:29:44

And I wouldn't be surprised when you go there

0:29:450:29:48

if you bump into someone that you haven't seen for years,

0:29:480:29:52

because I feel that you've got

0:29:520:29:54

a lot of love coming to you, OK?

0:29:540:29:57

God bless.

0:29:570:29:58

OK, piano. Who's got a piano?

0:29:590:30:01

-Have you been playing the piano?

-Well, years ago, yeah.

0:30:020:30:05

Well, they know.

0:30:050:30:07

They're saying we know everything you do and we're so proud of you.

0:30:070:30:11

Now, what's the American connection?

0:30:140:30:17

-I'm getting someone saying something about America?

-No.

0:30:170:30:20

No, you can't get that?

0:30:200:30:22

Well, look, I think I'll be budging over somewhere,

0:30:220:30:24

because I can definitely feel something about America.

0:30:240:30:27

Oh, gentleman at the back there.

0:30:270:30:29

Could you take an American connection?

0:30:290:30:31

Er, I've been to America a few times, yeah.

0:30:360:30:40

Well, there you go.

0:30:400:30:41

Now, I think you've got some unfinished business there,

0:30:410:30:43

because it's calling you back, you know.

0:30:430:30:46

Also, I think you have a link

0:30:460:30:49

with the date 12 July.

0:30:490:30:52

That to me is Orange Day. You know, the Protestant day.

0:30:550:30:58

And you've got a link, a family link...

0:30:580:31:01

Protestant and a Catholic family link as well.

0:31:010:31:05

I mean, up there in spirit world, it makes no difference,

0:31:050:31:08

they're all equal. I mean, they like a bit of banter,

0:31:080:31:10

but you know, it's all good-humoured.

0:31:100:31:12

-My dad's Protestant, my mum was Catholic.

-Oh, well, there you go.

0:31:120:31:18

Ooh! Now, I'm feeling a bit breathy.

0:31:180:31:21

Yeah, that's a heavy smoker there. I can tell, because I can smell smoke.

0:31:210:31:24

Oh! I think there must be some kind of celebration coming up,

0:31:240:31:27

cos they're handing me a cigar!

0:31:270:31:30

Have you got an anniversary or big birthday coming up?

0:31:300:31:32

-It's my birthday next month.

-Well, there you are.

0:31:350:31:38

They're just letting you know, they're getting ready to

0:31:380:31:40

celebrate with you. Now...

0:31:400:31:42

I have got a lady here

0:31:420:31:45

giving you so much love.

0:31:450:31:48

She's a mother, do you understand?

0:31:480:31:50

A mother in spirit and she's doing this.

0:31:500:31:53

It's like the umbilical cord is still attached, is attached to you

0:31:540:31:58

and you know, I know that when you're a baby, you cut the cord,

0:31:580:32:02

but she's saying that you're still linked with this cord

0:32:020:32:06

and you always will be, it's a silver cord.

0:32:060:32:10

She's trying so hard to prove how much she loves you.

0:32:100:32:16

-Can you feel it? How close she is to you at this moment?

-Yeah.

0:32:160:32:19

Definitely. In fact, there she is.

0:32:190:32:21

Sitting just down there.

0:32:210:32:22

Oh, well, I was so sure I was

0:32:240:32:26

communicating with someone in spirit.

0:32:260:32:29

So I don't understand, if my mum is still alive,

0:32:290:32:32

what's all this stuff about umbilical cords?

0:32:320:32:34

Well, sometimes, when we telepathically link to the mind

0:32:340:32:38

of a spirit, there's a possibility of a crossover to people on earth.

0:32:380:32:42

So what's happened here is, I think, I felt the energy between you two

0:32:420:32:47

in this room and I didn't realise that it was a living connection.

0:32:470:32:50

Oh, right. So you weren't actually talking to a dead person,

0:32:500:32:54

you were reading both our minds, instead?

0:32:540:32:57

I think we should probably move on.

0:32:570:32:59

We've an awful lot of people in tonight hoping to receive a message.

0:32:590:33:03

Sorry, can I just ask one more question?

0:33:030:33:05

-Mum, is this the same one who contacted my dad last week?

-Yes.

0:33:050:33:11

Right. Well, I hate to tell you this,

0:33:110:33:13

but you definitely got your psychic wires crossed on that one.

0:33:130:33:16

Cos I can assure you, dead or alive, there's no way in a million years

0:33:160:33:19

my dad would ever waste his time with a fraud like you.

0:33:190:33:22

I'm sorry, my love, but if you're going to be negative...

0:33:220:33:24

And if you really are hearing voices in your head...

0:33:240:33:26

..or offensive, we'll have to ask you to leave.

0:33:260:33:29

I'd go see a psychiatrist if I were you. Don't worry, I'm going.

0:33:290:33:32

Apologies for that, everyone.

0:33:360:33:38

We all know that there's a lot of very cynical people out there

0:33:380:33:41

and that is entirely their prerogative.

0:33:410:33:43

What the hell are you playing at?

0:33:500:33:52

I've never been so mortified in the whole of my life.

0:33:520:33:55

I'll never be able to show my face in there again.

0:33:550:33:58

-Good!

-What is the matter with you?

0:33:580:34:00

-I'll wait in the pub.

-Oh, come on.

0:34:000:34:02

If you can't see what a load of rubbish it is now, you never will.

0:34:020:34:05

So you came here to prove a point?

0:34:050:34:06

-Cos you've always got to be right.

-No.

0:34:060:34:08

I just wanted to see for myself what it was all about.

0:34:080:34:11

I didn't know she would approach me, did I?

0:34:110:34:12

No, but you were quite happy to lead her on a merry dance.

0:34:120:34:15

Think she did a pretty good job of that on her own.

0:34:150:34:18

I find something that brings me comfort

0:34:180:34:20

and you are determined to take it away from me.

0:34:200:34:23

-Mum...

-How dare you?

0:34:230:34:26

Mum.

0:34:260:34:27

Oh, right - so you're more than happy to contact the dead,

0:34:280:34:31

but then turn your back on the living?

0:34:310:34:33

-Who are you to lecture anyone on that?

-You what?

0:34:350:34:38

Well, let's face it, it's no wonder you don't want to receive a message

0:34:380:34:42

from your dad now, cos you barely bothered with him when he was alive!

0:34:420:34:45

Oh, don't look at me like that, because we both know it's true.

0:34:460:34:50

Mum, I know you're hurting, but believe me,

0:34:500:34:54

you're searching for answers in all the wrong places.

0:34:540:34:57

I wouldn't be searching at all, would I, if it wasn't you?

0:34:570:35:00

What's that supposed to mean?

0:35:000:35:01

Let's... Forget it. Leave it.

0:35:030:35:05

No, no, no. Come on, say it.

0:35:050:35:07

All I know is...

0:35:110:35:13

..that when your father was diagnosed,

0:35:150:35:18

I made him a promise that I would be with him when he passed.

0:35:180:35:22

And thanks to you, I broke that promise.

0:35:230:35:26

Because of me?

0:35:280:35:29

You... You knew he barely had days left.

0:35:340:35:38

And yet you STILL wouldn't cancel some meeting...

0:35:390:35:42

that was so important to you!

0:35:420:35:45

Why do you think I left that room in the first place?

0:35:510:35:54

Because you were calling again with some bloody excuse!

0:35:570:36:02

HE SNIFFS

0:36:180:36:19

PHONE RINGS

0:36:290:36:31

PHONE RINGS

0:36:510:36:53

Please leave a message after the tone.

0:37:030:37:05

BEEP

0:37:050:37:07

Mum, it's me again.

0:37:070:37:08

Just give me a call when you can.

0:37:080:37:10

You want a biscuit?

0:37:460:37:47

I can't stop thinking about what you said the other day.

0:37:540:37:57

I feel absolutely terrible, Mum.

0:37:590:38:01

And I know I wasn't there for him much towards the end.

0:38:030:38:07

But I'd hate for you to think it's because I didn't care.

0:38:070:38:10

Mum, you know what Dad was like, he didn't do serious.

0:38:110:38:14

He only ever talked about footy or work.

0:38:150:38:17

Just normal stuff, like everyone else.

0:38:200:38:22

Even when he was in the hospice...

0:38:250:38:27

..and I had all the stuff in my head, that I knew I had to say,

0:38:290:38:33

but I could never find the words...

0:38:330:38:34

And even in that last week, when I knew time was running out...

0:38:360:38:39

That if I didn't say it,

0:38:390:38:41

I'd end up regretting it for the rest of my life, so what did I do?

0:38:410:38:44

I threw myself into work, ran off back to London to some stupid

0:38:450:38:48

meeting I could have cancelled like that.

0:38:480:38:50

And now...

0:38:520:38:54

So, what exactly did you want to say?

0:38:590:39:01

That I loved him.

0:39:030:39:04

And how grateful I was that he was always...

0:39:060:39:08

..so accepting of me because I know it wasn't always easy for him...

0:39:090:39:13

And that I'm sorry.

0:39:180:39:19

Sorry? What for?

0:39:200:39:22

If I've been a disappointment to him.

0:39:240:39:26

What the hell are you talking about?

0:39:280:39:31

Come on.

0:39:310:39:33

Look at Aggie and her kids.

0:39:330:39:35

Grandkids I've deprived you both of.

0:39:350:39:37

Oh, you didn't deprive us of anything.

0:39:370:39:39

I wouldn't swap places with Aggie for a big clock.

0:39:410:39:45

When you have kids, it's...

0:39:460:39:47

It's like you never really die.

0:39:490:39:51

It's like your genes live on through them and then their kids...

0:39:510:39:54

Yeah, exactly, and your dad lives on through you.

0:39:540:39:58

But, Mum, I'm the end of the line.

0:39:580:40:00

Aren't I?

0:40:020:40:03

When my time comes, I really will die

0:40:030:40:04

and I'll be taking you all down with me.

0:40:040:40:06

Well, it's just as well we won't be around!

0:40:060:40:09

You are more like your dad than you'll ever know.

0:40:170:40:20

That's why sometimes I could smash your face in!

0:40:210:40:24

Good job you've inherited some of his better traits.

0:40:270:40:30

You're kind and you're generous and...

0:40:330:40:36

you've got his same wicked sense of humour and...

0:40:360:40:39

Not to mention his good looks.

0:40:400:40:42

Never underestimate how much your dad loved you.

0:40:450:40:47

He was so proud of you.

0:40:500:40:52

He would not have changed you for the world.

0:40:550:40:57

If ever I need to feel close to your dad...

0:41:000:41:02

..all I've got to do is look at you.

0:41:040:41:06

Oh, come here, soft lad.

0:41:090:41:11

KNOCKING

0:41:330:41:34

-Hiya!

-Hiya.

0:41:380:41:39

-Oh, someone's been busy!

-Yeah, well...

0:41:400:41:43

It just felt like the right time.

0:41:430:41:45

Oh, may as well let someone else make good use of it.

0:41:450:41:47

That's just what Michael said. He's been great. He did the bulk of it.

0:41:470:41:51

Couple more bags upstairs, would you give me a hand?

0:41:510:41:54

-Then I'll make as a cuppa.

-Yeah, course.

0:41:540:41:57

-So has Michael been today?

-Yeah, you've just missed him, actually.

0:41:570:42:00

Oh, that's a shame.

0:42:000:42:02

-So are you two back on track?

-Yeah.

-Oh, great.

0:42:020:42:05

Feels funny being up here.

0:42:090:42:10

Aww. Seems like yesterday.

0:42:140:42:16

Scary, isn't it?

0:42:170:42:19

You might be clearing out his stuff,

0:42:190:42:21

but you'll never clear out the memories.

0:42:210:42:23

You can feel his presence in every room of this house.

0:42:230:42:26

If I bring these down, would you mind taking those down for me, love?

0:42:260:42:29

HE ROARS, SHE SCREAMS

0:42:310:42:34

-Jesus!

-I'm so.. I'm sorry!

0:42:360:42:39

You're sorry?!

0:42:390:42:41

You pair of bloody loons!

0:42:420:42:44

Your face!

0:42:460:42:48

# Hear the whisper of the raindrops

0:42:560:43:00

# Blowing soft across the window

0:43:010:43:06

# And make believe you love me

0:43:080:43:12

# One more time

0:43:120:43:15

# For the good times. #

0:43:180:43:20

A recently bereaved woman finds comfort in her local spiritualist church, much to the horror of her sceptical son.
