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.
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 !!
