Robbie Coltrane stars as the criminal psychologist Fitz in the first story from the popular series written by Jimmy McGovern. When a student of Fitz's is butchered on a train, an unconscious, blood-stained man (Adrian Dunbar) discovered near the scene of the crime soon becomes the number-one suspect. The man claims to be suffering from amnesia, and Fitz is brought in to help uncover the truth.

4.0 out of 5 stars 'Cracker' Is a Cracker.... 4 April 2012
By Tim Kidner TOP 500 REVIEWER
Disc one in the now quite cheap Complete Cracker box set is this intro to Fitz and his zany ways. Unorthodox, radical, flawed, ruthless; he's them all. And bloody good at his job.

The Mad Woman in the Attic is nearly 20 years old now and is a graphic as they come and totally unflinching when it comes to show the result of a razor to the neck of a young girl on a train.

Directed by Michael Winterbottom, who's firmly established as a major director in his own right nowadays, it features an early and major role for Christopher Eccleston, as the cop who never sees eye to eye with Fitz. An interesting story about the amnesiac (played by Adrian Dunbar) accused of her murder but who obviously, maybe conveniently, cannot remember doing it.

Another slightly sad, but also amusing and definitely gripping insight into the fascinating mind of Fitz.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed 21 Dec 2011
By Janet
Received my copy of this DVD only to find that the DVD was rattling around in the box and all the papers etc which should have been inside were missing !! Exterior of box dirty and difficult to close. Am unable, of course, to pass this DVD on to anyone as a gift !!
