  • I grew up in Lant Street.

  • We had the best view of the gallows.

  • And on hanging days

  • people paid money to view from our top window.

  • No, Sue. You put the kettle on.

  • Let me see, I wanna see!

  • Susan Trinder?

  • Her mother was hanged for murder.

  • She died a dame, you know.

  • Oh dear girl.

  • Come on then, up you go.

  • Quick, quick.

  • Institute of the insane.

  • My name is Maud Lilly.

  • And I was brought up at the mad house,

  • where my mother died giving birth to me.

  • Maud. Maud have a visitor.

  • A visitor?

  • I can't remember in all these years..

  • Why is your tongue black?

  • Come on.

  • She is as under sized as her voice is loud.

  • Can't you whisper?

  • Of course I can.

  • Whisper.

  • Can she be silent?

  • Let me see it.

  • My mother, Sir.

  • My sister.

  • Let us hope that we'll remind you of her fate and prevent you from sharing it.

  • Can she read?

  • Blessed are the poor in spirit..

  • Blessed.

  • Blessed are the poor in spirit.

  • I'll take her.

  • I'll send my house keeper to collect her tomorrow.

  • I won't go!

  • You shan’t make me!

  • I want to stay with you matron.

  • I won't go!

  • If our friend had known the ins and outs of this little number...

  • he'd never would have been topped.

  • Oh! Oh, look at that! Only since today!

  • You're gonna make our fortune, aren't you Sue?

  • Am I?

  • Ain't she, Mr. Ibbs?

  • I was brought up by Mrs. Sucksby.

  • Who was paid to look after me for a week when I was a baby.

  • But she kept me all those years.

  • If that ain't love

  • I don't know what is.

  • The Bryar bell.

  • This is where your mother lived.

  • You are to be a lady, as she was.

  • Of all her fortune she turned to the mad.

  • It is to be hoped that you turned out better than she did.

  • You haven't finished your eggs?

  • I don't want to be a lady

  • You can't make me.

  • We'll see about that, Miss Lilly.

  • Keep your gloves on...

  • Mr. Lilly will require it.

  • Yes.

  • No one is allowed beyond there.

  • for fear of spoiling his books.

  • How's her temper, Mrs. Stiles?

  • Rather ill, Sir.

  • Have you had her wear gloves?

  • Threw them at me, sir.

  • Give me your hand, Maud.

  • Give me your hand!

  • You won't forget the gloves in the future, will you Maud?

  • No.

  • Put them on.

  • Not a cover is to be touch, not a leaf will be turned without them, do you understand?

  • You realize why I brought you here Maud?

  • To... To make a lady of me.

  • To make a secretary of you. Maud.

  • I couldn't read.

  • All I knew about letters was what I've picked up by studying vipers.

  • I was a fingersmith.

  • A thief.

  • Melt down this little number, will you John.

  • My pleasure.

  • I'd like to melt her down.

  • Don't arse about or I'll knock your bloody head off.

  • Oh, I'll knock it off!

  • Come on!

  • Yeah, yeah, yeah. You just try it.

  • Mrs. Sucksby was a baby farmer.

  • Paid to look after unwanted babies.

  • Poor little scraps.

  • Look at you, treasure.

  • Ah, Maud. I neglected to tell you

  • tonight there will be a new gentleman at your reading.

  • An artist, Mr. Richard Rivers.

  • He'll be here for a week

  • mounting pictures for the catalogue.

  • He'll also be giving you lessons in painting.

  • So they came together.

  • The romance may have been somewhat unusual

  • but that gave it all the charm of the unexpected.

  • And there, as the red sun tinges the sky

  • and the chatter of birds heralds the coming night,

  • we must leave them.

  • Wonderful Miss Lilly!

  • You read so beautifully!

  • If only the patrons of my book shop in Holywell Street could hear you.

  • Your words are pure poetry.

  • Music, Huss. Music.

  • Thank you.

  • Thank you Maud.

  • Mr. Rivers, you say nothing.

  • Does it not please you?

  • I cannot find words Sir.

  • Ah, there you see Huss.

  • The young rouge has beaten us.

  • Indeed, indeed.

  • Excuse me.

  • Now Sir, I have the first edition which you required.

  • Have you indeed?

  • I'm sorry to disturb you but,

  • I'm concerned that you might find it a little...

  • chill out of the fire.

  • The fire is very hot.

  • It is, you're right.

  • Very hot.

  • Very hot indeed.

  • What will you do when this great catalogue is finished?

  • It will never be finished.

  • Come on Miss Lilly, do you really mean to remain here forever?

  • I have no choice.

  • You're young, handsome.

  • I say it not for gallantries sake,

  • I say what I see.

  • You might do anything.

  • You are a man, Mr. Rivers,

  • and might do anything.

  • I am a woman and might do nothing.

  • Chuck diggers on a bitch of hearts. Ain't she slow.

  • What's that?

  • Are we expecting any one?

  • Open up!

  • If it's the blues, we're done for!

  • Open the door!

  • Sovereigns. Under the fire.

  • Come on! Open up.

  • - Open the door! - Damn my fingers!

  • Never mind your fingers, think about your neck!

  • We're all tidy?

  • All right, all right!

  • It's gentleman.

  • Gentleman.

  • Take a taper to them candles, Sue.

  • Put a brew on Dainty.

  • Gentleman told us he'd gambled away his fortune.

  • He was obliged to get money the old fashion way.

  • By thievery, and dodging.

  • I worked on the old man's catalogue in the morning

  • and in the afternoon I worked on her.

  • Taught painting that is.

  • Her maid, Agnes, was the most agreeable chaperon.

  • Love as love will was finding its way.

  • At the end of the week the agreeable Agnes gets scarlet fever.

  • They had to send her home Ireland.

  • The house keeper with bad grace takes over

  • temporarily and is as tight on the girl as a corset.

  • Said she had no time to chaperon.

  • No more painting.

  • Damn it and I was nearly there!

  • Where's there gentleman?

  • She's as rich...

  • as a queen, Mr. Ibbs.

  • How rich?

  • Thirty thousand in ready.

  • Ten thousand in funds. Left to her in her mother's will.

  • She can't touch it unless she marries.

  • And her uncle makes sure she never will by keeping her close.

  • That house is her prison.

  • Are you going to marry her?

  • Well, then I can do what I like with her.

  • When her uncle asks a few questions about you?

  • That's why I've become the exemplary Mr. Richard Rivers.

  • I will...

  • marry her!

  • With the help...

  • of Sue.

  • Me?

  • You're gonna become her friend.

  • Persuade her to trust me.

  • To run away and marry me!

  • Why me?

  • A fingersmith with a heart of gold, Sue.

  • No good in making a bleeding maid out of me, Mrs. Sucksby.

  • Why take my Sue?

  • Because she's yours,

  • and I know she can do it.

  • And how would you cut the shine?

  • Sue will get two thousand pounds.

  • Dainty will do it!

  • I've been a maid, ain't I?

  • Stuck in that pin in the ladies arse, as I recalled.

  • She was an old bitch.

  • You're the old bitch.

  • Think of all the money we lost.

  • Where is this place?

  • Out in the country.

  • Don't know where the bleeding country is.

  • I'm a Londoner. Never been out of the smoke have I?

  • Get on, she would never accept me.

  • You're my old nurse’s child!

  • Susan Smith.

  • You would have an impeccable character reference

  • from Lady Stonely of Curson Crimson Mayfair.

  • Oh she'll to swallow it, the girls never been to London.

  • She's a bit simple. A pigeon.

  • It'll be a bit of a holiday for you, Sue.

  • And it'll work.

  • Bleeding long holiday if it don't.

  • I won't do it.

  • Not for two.

  • I want three thousand pounds.

  • Take it or leave it.

  • What's that?

  • Another application for my personal maid, uncle,

  • a recommendation from Mr. Rivers.

  • "Susan has been maiden for a lady who's been married and gone to India."

  • "So she has lost her place."

  • "Susan is a very good girl," I wrote, but...

  • and I put this rather well, I think.

  • "I fear that she will go to the bad unless

  • she finds further employment."

  • No!

  • You never wrote that. You never!

  • Oh my God!

  • Who's this cape?

  • Your job.

  • Yeah, you have to dress her.

  • Take them off.

  • Maids don't wear bangles.

  • Shimmy?

  • Chemise.

  • Chemise.

  • You have to warm it.

  • For gods sake!

  • Would you mind raising your arms, Miss?

  • Sue, how many more times?

  • Bleeding frill!

  • She's a lady.

  • Shy.

  • She'll pick up like anything with me and Sue to teach her

  • Why don't you die!

  • There you sweet little bitch!

  • What happens after you're married?

  • I told you she's a bit simple.

  • Living with her uncle will tip her over the brink.

  • After we're married I'll put her in the mad house

  • and there she'll stay.

  • I need your help to get her there.

  • You don't know that.

  • It's in her blood, her mother was mad and she'll end up there any way.

  • Take it or leave it Sue, that's for the extra thousand.

  • Three thousand pounds Sue.

  • And you can have any
