Excellent crime drama provides insight... and some laughs
Unlike the U.S. version, the U.K. version of Cracker is smart, witty, funny, insightful, and often touching. Robbie Coltrane is excellent as Fitz, the criminal psychologist, and the entire cast works together very well. This TV series is worthy of the big screen. I'm hoping they will make more episodes!
