    This was the first episode of the UK Cracker series. It set the tone for those episodes to follow: gritty, at times depressing, but always exciting. This first part shows the murder of a young woman on a train. The police find a man along the side of the railroad tracks who professes to have amnesia. The police are convinced that the amnesiac did it, but they are not able to get him to confess. So, they call in Dr. Fitzgerald (Fitz), a psychologist, who is at times an obnoxious drunk, a gambler who has mortgaged the house to pay for his gambling debts, and a womanizer. It is genuinely amazing, but with all of his faults, Fitz is charming and likeable. Robbie Coltrane starts the series as he continues on – he portrays the psychologist with flare and alarming accuracy. This is a series that anyone who likes British mysteries should watch.moreless
