Singing Detective, The

Dennis Potter's legendary, award-winning masterpiece is all this and more. It's the story of Philip Marlow, a mystery writer stricken with a crippling skin disorder whose hallucinations interweave memories of his past with the murder mystery in his book, The Singing Detective, the story of a suave sleuth who croons with a big band when he's not cracking cases.

Hailed by critics and audiences as one of the greatest television productions of all time, this collector's edition DVD set of The Singing Detective has been restored to its original brilliance and features insightful bonus features that give viewers a rare glimpse into the brilliant mind of Dennis Potter.
