From THE INTERNET MOVIE DATABASE
The years 1985 and 1986 were the best years for Television- 1986 had The Singing Detective and 1985 had this gem.
It begins as a routine crime story, but grows and mutates until the affairs of men are swamped by infinity. Bob Peck provides perhaps the best performance ever seen on the small screen and the direction is superb - the close-up of the statue of Jesus pocked with radiation sickness is one of the most effective I have ever seen.
Buy the video, and wonder why the long-awaited DVD was mysteriously cancelled in the UK.
