Singing Detective:
One of the greatest and most literate achievements of British television drama is finally to be released on DVD next month. Dennis Potter’s BBC series The Singing Detective should be available from 8th March. Over six hours on a two-DVD set, for only £15.99. It’ll include the Arena Dennis Potter interview and a documentary about Potter’s work. A bargain. Now if only we could get hold of those other all-time TV greats, also currently unavailable on DVD, such as Thirtysomething, Northern Exposure, The Phil Silvers Show (Sgt. Bilko).
