Unofficial Guide To Cracker' was created in July 1999 and is
and is no way associated with Granada Television, Jimmy McGovern,
Robbie Coltrane or anyone else who was involved in the making of
the series. As a result of those people who have contacted me in
the past and those who might try contacting me in the future for
any contact addresses for McGovern or the cast members, I have to
say although I wish I could help I'm afraid I can't! Sorry!
the reason behind this website? Well, I just love Cracker!
I first discovered it during the second
series after watching 'To Be A Somebody' for the first time when
it was originally screened back in 1994. Being a Liverpool FC fan,
the Hillsborough connection pulled me in and I've been totally
hooked on it ever since. When I managed to get on-line for the
first time I attempted to look up anything remotely Cracker
related and found virtually nothing. So I decided to set up my own
website which I hope is a worthwhile dedication to Jimmy
McGovern's classic series, which really has now become one of the
greatest drama series ever made.
will always remain my all time favourite TV series - I have lost
count of the amount of times I've watched the episodes, and even
now I never get bored of watching them. They are everything that
great television drama should be. And while there have been many
crime series on TV since Cracker (in the UK especially), none have
even come close to matching McGovern's brilliant characterisation,
the topical and powerful writing, it's humour (the series is
littered with so many great lines) or it's acting. As for
Fitz, well, where do I begin? He is just a fictional creation of
pure genius and without question one of the best TV characters of
all time. I love the fact he is so super-intelligent yet slightly
screwed up, so great at his profession yet so incapable of ever
being able to sort out the mess that is his private life, so
funny, so flawed and most importantly, so human! Robbie
Coltrane just made him a joy to watch from start to finish of the
anyone would like to contact me for any reason then my e-mail
address is below. I would love to hear from any fellow Cracker
fans especially but if anybody can help me out with any other
interviews/pictures with any of the cast members or Jimmy
McGovern, it would be greatly appreciated!
of course, thanks for visiting my website!
