Though he lacks social graces, a criminal psychologist nicknamed "Cracker" possesses an almost supernatural-like ability to solve mysteries, despite his own personal issues. The show highlights just how fine of a line there can be between living a life of crime and being a law-abiding police officer. The series stars Robbie Coltrane, Christopher Eccleston, Ricky Tomlinson and Barbara Flynn.
The show aired for three seasons between the years of 1993 and 1996. Since it's creation in 1993, the show and its members have received over 14 award nominations and 20 wins. The main character, Fitz, was named after the English poet and writer Edward Fitzgerald.
