In this feature-length production, Coltrane reprises his title role as Dr. Edward "Fitz" Fitzgerald, controversial criminologist, abrasive, arrogant and brilliant psychologist. Coltrane dominates the film, of course, with his powerful portrayal of his character. At any rate, Fitz, his long-suffering wife Judith (Barbara Flynn), and their youngest son supposedly have lived as ex-pats in Australia for nearly a decade, while he grapples with his addictions to drink, cigarettes and gambling. They now return to their hometown, Manchester, for the wedding of his daughter. Fitz is, of course, older, fatter, and grayer, and, as a further result of his heavy indulgences, he's looking into Viagra.Read more ›
In regards to Ireland, the Brits are not without blood on their hands. Read your history people, and might I suggest starting with the executions that followed the Easter Uprising of 1916. Don't use the Americans as a scapegoat for what the Brits started in Ireland hundreds of years ago.
And, by the way, the terrorist attacks of 9/11 killed 8 children under the age of 12. I suppose they "had it coming" because they had somehow funded the IRA as well.
To me, it felt so inconclusive. Not the cliffhanger/I-want-to-see-more kind but something disappointing instead. And in the end, it becomes just one more case, not the time to say good-bye to a character or a story you like, but just one last time to see the show.

It doesn't really seem plausible that Fitz could survive away from Manchester's Police department. Presumably he's found similar work in Australia. Read morePublished on September 26, 2010 by bob turnley
