It's a kind of microscopic creature that's got into the pipes.
As soon as he tries to alert the authorities, his life pretty much unravels.

I mean I lobbied for 1397, which was the year Norway entered in to a union with Denmark.
I wouldn't have got that.
So what point is my daughter making?
She's allowing in some difficult emotions.
And because they're difficult, she's taking them out on you.
Why isn't she taking it out on you?
I mean, isn't that what you're for?
Well, up to a point, but also she might be worried about a union between Norway and Denmark.
In the scenario where I'm Denmark.
Right, and I'm, um... Yeah.
Yeah, obviously I am.
Which she might find conflicting.
Might or definitely?
She definitely might.
Um, and, um... is such a, a union, um... Ratifiable?
Do you think we'll get to a point where we can talk normally?
(laughing): God, I hope so.
Uh, thank you for coming.
(opens car door) She not giving you a lift?
Doesn't look like it.
I get it now.
I don't suppose-- There's a bus stop round the corner.

That's what the drilling was.
Okay, so, Morgan needs a mother, therapist, and possibly a grandparent, but I'm on the fence about that.
But definitely a friend.
And, you know, she'll get a... a proper one soon, but, in the meantime it seems it's you.
So please be kind to her.
What did you find?
Well, his mum died six months ago.
He took some compassionate leave.
It's marked up in his work diary.
Her name was Katrine.
So she was named after the loch.
That's the significance.
And the only one Murdo shared with his father.
Who told us she died years ago.
"M-A" was Ma after all.
Although "makeup artist" was strong too.
We don't know she wasn't one.

And he hurt them.
And then he robbed them, Sandy's money.
I asked him to give it back for his mother's sake.
We were spreading her ashes.
I promised her we'd do it together and I would talk to him.
What did he say?
He said he needed compensating too!
(grunting loudly) And I knew he would keep on doing it over and over... Let's just wait in here.
No, I can't... No, it's fine, honestly.
(grunting) (drops mallet) (breathing deeply) I held his head under.
And he was drunk and stoned, but he... (voice breaking): He was just a wee boy, for a moment.

What a thing against nature.

(grunts) (weeping) (car door opens) So, Ibsen got his house servant pregnant, did you know that?
She had a son and apparently he never made any attempt to see him.
You read it.
Read it aloud to the kids.
Are you keying up a joke about how it got them to sleep?
Never, I respect your culture.
Anyway, my eldest went to a counselor at the school for anxiety, I'd forgotten all about it.
Just trying to remember if I slept with his shrink or not.
Okay, that's very good.
I haven't, and I won't.
Yes, you will.

Mm, drink as much as you like, best water in the world.

Hello, Miss Strandhed.
Okay, well, thanks for what you've done for Morgan.
It was a pleasure.
I'll send my assessment after the session.
What, about this whole experience?
Right, you can have that now, thumbs up.
I see why you get paid big bucks.

It's always about the mother, isn't it?
Well, and guilt as well, probably.
At least now you can put a, a face to the source of the trauma.
NICOLA WALKER: Morgan is just starting to, um, enter a really difficult part of her, you know, of her teenage life.
Morgan is very complex, playful character.
She's got a lot going on in her head.
She's kind of going through that awkward stage of growing up and she's going through that teenage stage where she's starting to like people and start to fancy people and she's kind of exploring her sexuality.
And she's discovering alcohol.
I'm being parented with a website about liver damage.
Yes, because no one believes you use vodka as a mouthwash.
NICK WALKER: It's a fascinating and very dynamic age to meet a character.
So the kind of, you know, teens on the brink of kind of adulthood, having to make some choices, but also independent enough so that there's not quite that kind of pull on, on Annika in different sorts of ways.
Best news is that I get taken in a crappy boat to a crappy school to be in a totally crappy play.
NICOLA WALKER: I've uprooted her many times, you realize, because of my career.
Because it's just us two against the world.
Um, we've not... it's not been stable in that way.
The job has dictated quite a lot of moves in their lives.
And this one seems difficult for her this time.
You know what, nothing.
♪ ♪ I'm sorry.
Hey, maybe you're having trouble fitting in because you're so chippy!
FURNEAUX: Well, she's got that relationship with her mum, which I can definitely relate to in the fact that you argue like cat and dog and you clash, but, like, you still love each other.
And so I definitely like that kind of side of it.
And I thought it would be really interesting to play someone that has got so much going on in their head like all at once and that she doesn't really know how to sort of deal with it.
And I've obviously...
I've gone through that stage of my life where it's kind of, like, awkward.
You're not old enough to do, like, things that you want to be doing, but you do them anyway.
Like, I don't know, it's like... it's just an awkward stage.
(phone camera clicks) PHILLIP JOHN: She's struggling with a new school, she's struggling with a new house.
She struggles with the fact that Annika can't give her any time, that Annika is always working and sometimes drags her along to interview people, or when really she should be having a young person's life, which is quite difficult of course in the wilds of Scotland.
You know, so... you know, there's a massive weight on Annika.
She tries to keep an eye on Morgan because Morgan can be a bit wayward, she's pushing back, which is perfectly natural and healthy.
But, you know, she's a handful for Annika while she's trying to work and sort things out and then come home and try to have some kind of family life.
It's, it's sort of an impossible balancing act, really.
Why are you being snippy with me?
NICK WALKER: When I was writing the series, I, I do have a teenage, you know, daughter and sort of like recognize that sort of really fascinating, you know, combination of wanting to be independent but still really needing, you know, your parents around for reassurance, and also the concerns that, you know, that a daughter might have for somebody who essentially is, is... her work puts her in contact with murderers every, every single week, you know, and what the concerns are about that.
NICOLA WALKER: She's really worried about her mum and her mum's really worried about her.
So you've got these two people that really love each other.
It seems a very honest portrayal of a mother-daughter relationship.
I think they understand each other really well because it's just been the two of them.
It's not full of screaming angst.
It's not... it's much more complicated and layered than that.
FURNEAUX: They definitely do clash.
But there's definitely some really nice moments between them.
She struggles with her mum being away a lot of the time, especially the work that her mum is involved in.
It, it stresses Morgan out, but there's nothing she can do about it.
Like, it's her mum's job.
She's kind of left alone a lot because her dad's not in the picture.
Her mum never really talks about him or anything like that.
And I think Morgan kind of just accepts it, like, it's kind of just always been her and her mum.
But Morgan, like, she knows that her mum loves her job and she doesn't want to, like, get in the way.
But I think having her dad would help a lot.
