The Singing Detective - continues to amaze after 25 years...
December 11, 2011  | By David Bianculli
 

 

Yes, it's The Singing Detective, the 1986 Dennis Potter miniseries that, with its uniqueness, complexity and entertaining audacity, continues to amaze me 25 years after it was televised.

I wrote the liner notes to this BBC Video release, but I'm not selling me -- just Potter's bold, brilliant work.

As we begin singling out some all-time TV classics sure to make a memorable impression as holiday gifts, The Singing Detective, starring Michael Gambon, is at the very top of the list.

And, you can order the DVD HERE.
