This book examines the work of the late, celebrated television playwright, Dennis Potter. Drawing upon original research, including unpublished scripts, interviews with top film and television practitioners, as well as a rare interview with the writer himself, John Cook reveals the often astonishing array of themes which link together all of Potter's writing: from his early television plays in the 1960s right through to his final works in 1994.
