First of all, I want to say straight out that every Cracker episode prior to this one definitely deserves 5 stars. This one, however, is the final compilation (in UK, it's released as series 1 and 2-- not divided into 3 seasons) and, it's a complete let down to the earlier episodes. White Ghost, the finale (not including the 2006 episode that also has nothing to do with earlier episodes)is the poorest conclusion for a character-driven series that I've ever seen.

During the series, we met Fitz, a brash, alcohol-guzzling, chain-smoking psychologist. He is brilliant. He understands everything going on around him and can read a person like a book. Watching him is an experience. The stories are so well-written and the characters so intense, that this entire series (up until what is sold here as the Third Season) is a joy.

But, the third and final season just doesn't tie up any of the loose ends. It gives some suggestion, but nothing really. And, by Fitz' mention of Penhaligan in the last episode here, any question that you might have felt had been answered was obviously incorrect.

In the episode just prior to White Ghost, we find out Penhaligan has given her resignation. We find out how Cracker truly feels about his wife (well, kind of-- as he walks out of the hospital leaving her standing alone). And, that's that.

In the last episode, we never see any closure. And, Fitz calls home, too, and his wife lives there! And, he asks for Penhaligan to be sent to Hong Kong to help with his case, and she can't come. But, that's all. So, we never find out how these three are now interacting with eachother and that's the biggest letdown after all this character buildup from the prior episodes.

Great wind-up to the series. The casting is perfect. As always, the stories are thought-provoking and gritty, but told with humour and compassion. Buy all three series, and watch them in order, or you'll miss the carefully crafted progression through the main characters' lives.

To those that have never seen this british crime series I say buy it you won't regret it, I had seen it off and on on PBS for years but this was the first time I came accross the entire collection.Robbie Coltrane ( from Harry Potter Fame) is an outstanding talent in the series and it is done so well, for those that don't know him, he has been a very popular stage and screen actor in Great Britan for years .

Excellent service. The items arrived quickly and I totally enjoyed all the episodes. I wish they had more seasons to buy (I've bought all of the cracker seasons I could find on the amazon website, and hated for them to end.)

Seasons 1-3. These comments address several seasons, so clearly good enough to keep watching. I like the idea (sharp psychologist helping police) but after binge watching (yes, I did!) I noticed a disturbing trend in the female characters and their relationships. I'm not particularly sensitive to that, so it took watching several episodes in a row - but it's there. The writers hate women? Times have changed that much? Not sure, but once noticed it kinda permeated the show and made it less enjoyable which was a bummer since, again, the idea is quite cool. I'll skip forward a bit and see if the more current episodes portray women in an ever so slightly more realistic light =)

Cracker reminds me somewhat of the character who plays The Mentalist. Difference is that his character is very interesting in the story - complications at home with his wife, children, and girlfriend, plus his bad habits - gambling and drinking, for example. I am somewhat bothered by the fact that he give a profile on a killer, having so little details from the story - he is a psychiatrist. This seems a little unrealistic, but watching his character and his relationship with the police is what intrigues me.

Yep he solves the most convoluted mysteries, but can't see his own life get wrung out like a used dish rag. Don't you just love a Hero that can see everything except that tree in the middle of the road? Anyway they took him as far as he could get from home and set him down in Hong Kong. Even with people that speak English he still needs an translator. Nothing new there. Coltrane shines thru even in an ending that might not be what you expected.
