Cracker The Complete Collection
United Kingdom released, PAL/Region 2 DVD: LANGUAGES: English ( Dolby Digital Stereo ), English ( Subtitles ), SPECIAL FEATURES: Box Set, Interactive Menu, Multi-DVD Set, Scene Access, Special Edition, SYNOPSIS: All 11 feature length Cracker adventures in one box set! Robbie Coltrane leads an all-star cast in Jimmy McGovern's groundbreaking, gritty drama as the uncompromising, idiosyncratic Fitz, a man whose psychological insight extends to everyone but himself.
First screened in 1993, Jimmy McGovern's I Cracker /I was at once a variation on a familiar theme and a daring new departure from the run-of-the-mill cop show. Robbie Coltrane's Fitz is an independent criminal psychologist called in by the police to help them crack intractable cases, usually involving grisly serial murders. But like its Granada TV stablemate I Prime Suspect /I , I Cracker /I also delves deep into the main characters' personal lives, revealing a chaos of emotional entanglements that become increasingly inseparable from their professional duties.
