Trivia

In Episode 1, Daniel makes a call from a phone booth where someone has written "Reality Sucks" on the glass, and someone else has crossed out "Sucks" and written "or Nothing" below it. In the followup miniseries ("Cold Lazarus"), "Reality or Nothing" is the name of a group of anti-media terrorists. See more »

Daniel Feeld: Is that a euphemism, don't you mean growth?
Consultant: Ah, but we don't know if it's benign or malignant.
Daniel Feeld: An obstruction. Well, it's what I've always wanted to be.

Breathtaking
1 March 2003 | by (bean world, massachusetts) – See all my reviews

Quite simply, this is a stunning example of how good writing for television can be. Or writing, period, for that matter. It doesn't hurt that the cast, led by the indomitable Albert Finney, give uniformly great performances, but as with all of Dennis Potter's work, it's the virtuosity of the writing that reels you in, making you laugh hysterically in between (or sometimes during) scenes of unbelieveable sadness or poignancy. He was a true gem. I taped this miniseries when it was on Bravo five or six years ago and just watched it again for only the second time, and once again, it took my breath away. Viva Potter!
