Re-watching 'The Singing Detective' tonight reminded me (as if l needed reminding), what a great series it was. I've only just seen episode one again, but there was plenty in that to hook you straight away, and in fact there were scenes l thought featured later in the series. One of my favourite scenes in part one (apart from when he is getting greased up), is when he states his belief system as Malthusianism (from 2.30m to 3.10m). Pure class indeed, with great acting, and it's also superbly written (Michael Gambon and Dennis Potter).
Looking forward to the rest of them already.
