Gonna put on my controversial hat now...
Dennis Potter - overrated!
Sure he started out revoloutionary and that should never be forgotten.
Pennies from Heaven, Singing Detective - magnificent work. Stretching
form to a degree never before seen on television.
But his later stuff, surely he's resting on his laurels, lacking new ideas,
churning out the same ideas again. I mean Cold Lazarus, a single idea
stretched to ridiculous proportions? Could anyone but him, a dying him,
have sold the BBC or Channel 4 on the concept?
That beside he's still got to be one of my favourite individuals. Anyone
who names their cancer "Rupert" has got to be a hero of mine.
Don't shout too loud!
