First of all, I'm confused as to why Craven gave Dunford a fully-loaded pistol before pushing him out of a moving van at the end of Part 1. No theories I've thought of on my own or read online make any sense.
Second of all, I understand the connection to the Yorkshire Ripper, but what of the pedophile ring and ensuing coverup? How much of the material in the films is based at least partly on real-life events, and how much is fictionalized? Was corruption a huge issue in The North and, if so, were those people ever officially outed publicly or charged or anything like that?
And finally, do people in The North not use the word "was"? I were, he were, she were, it were... What's wrong with "was"!!
