Posted by David Lambert
A brilliant criminologist probes the dark recesses of the soul in Acorn Media's 10-Disc Cracker - The Complete Collection DVD release, coming out on March 10th. Cost is $119.99 SRP in the USA (CA$139.99 SRP in Canada), but you can pre-order from Amazon for $83.99 as of this writing (subject to change at Amazon's discretion). Here is Acorn's description with all the details, including extras; stay tuned for package art.
With more than 25 major awards-including BAFTAs for best drama series and best actor-Cracker ranks as one of British television's most acclaimed crime dramas. Robbie Coltrane (Harry Potter, Ocean's Twelve) truly inhabits his role as the brash and brilliant forensic psychologist, Dr. Edward "Fitz" Fitzgerald. For the police, Fitz's astonishing insights into the criminal mind prove invaluable, but his arrogance and boorishness make him barely tolerable as a colleague. For his family, Fitz's self-destructive compulsions-scotch, sex, and gambling-bring only pain and turmoil.
Complemented by an outstanding cast, Coltrane delivers a bravura performance as a genius who can dissect a psychopath's motives, but can't keep his own demons at bay. These powerful crime dramas examine the pressures and prejudices of contemporary urban life and the violence that they spawn.
SPECIAL FEATURES INCLUDE Cracker: Behind the Scenes, an intimate, 45-minute visit with the show's cast and creative team.
