So I am writing this in an attempt to get the Average Customer Review increased and give Dennis Potter the credit he deserves. I urge other like-minded people to do the same.
Dennis Potter was quite simply one of the greatest television writers Britain has ever produced - and this box set does the man justice. His work was constantly original, thought provoking and cutting edge. Even those who did not like Potter's edgy, sometimes controversial dramas must nevertheless agree that British television has become a far less interesting place since his death.
And if anyone from the BBC is reading this - may I suggest releasing an Essentail Alan Clarke box set in the very near future.
In my opinion, he made T.V. become as powerful a medium as the film can be, in terms of challenging the viewer and examining the deepest and most siginificant ideas and issues that human beings can face in life.

Casanova with Frank Finlay is dire, but Pennies from Heaven and most of the rest in the box set are great. Read morePublished on 29 Oct. 2012 by van de erekes
