The singing detective skin Part 1 1986

Philip Marlow is a man divested of all his dignity. After twenty years of suffering, his psoriatic arthritis has erupted to such an extent that he can no longer move without excruciating pain, his skin is covered in hideous pustules, and his out-of-control body temperature sometimes causes hallucinations (for example, that a cat has crawled under the bedclothes and is methodically chewing off his toes). He is now hospitalized for treatment, alternately patronized and ignored by the medical staff, and physically is as helpless as a baby–except for one part of his anatomy that is embarrassingly functional, especially when pretty young nurse Mills must apply ointment all around it. At such moments, his hallucinations offer hope of a momentary retreat, usually into production numbers lip-synced to popular song recordings of the 1940s

A word of caution, Singing Detective is so damn good; watch Episode one at your own risk as you will be compelled to watch all 6 in one sitting. Best for family sanity and your own to savor this serial drama over a number of days or Sunday nights. Singing Detective is from the genius mind of the author, Dennis Potter, and Jon Amiel director. We recommend you watch only the 1986 BBC original starring the incomparable, Michael Gambon. Hard to imagine another in this very challenging character lead with sufficient acting chops to pull it off. Best to stick to the best and leave the rest to others less discerning than you. Trust me once you watch this, known to you from Harry Potter actor, in this role you will proclaim, without a hint of arrogance nor righteousness,  Michael Gambon is a master.
