One of the best dramas ever produced by the BBC!

by on 9/10/2005

I have seen this series so many times ( First on British TV, then I bought it on video and now on DVD ) and still I find something new. It is a densely layered and entertaining drama. There really is nothing it can be compared with, Dennis Potter was a one-off and, rightly so, 'The Singing Detective' was hailed as one of his masterpieces.

Product Overview

A gripping murder mystery! A lavish musical!! An intense psychological thriller! A warped romance!

Dennis Potter's legendary, award-winning masterpiece is all this and more. It's the story of Philip Marlow (Michael Gambon), a mystery writer stricken with a crippling skin disorder whose hallucinations interweave memories of his past with the murder mystery in his book, The Singing Detective, the story of a suave sleuth who croons with a big band when he's not cracking cases.

Hailed by critics and audiences as one of the greatest television productions of all time, this collector's edition DVD set of The Singing Detective has been restored to its original brilliance and features insightful bonus features that give viewers a rare glimpse into the brilliant mind of Dennis Potter.
