The long awaited "new episode" of "Cracker" finally came to TV after writer Jimmy McGovern said he would only resurrect Dr. Fitzgerald if he could find a story compelling enough to tell. He should have waited a bit longer. Robbie Coltrane's "Cracker" was a brilliant series anchored by his mesmerizing performance. The best stories from that series had two to three episodes in which to play out, and they balanced Fitz's tumultuous homelife and the case he was investigating. In "A New Terror" (or "9/11" or whatever it is called), we have an abbreviated story, a killer we don't know much about and a lack of the series' core characters. Plus, to an American (even a liberal like myself) Fitz's America-bashing gets a little old. What makes this worth a rental is to see Coltrane as Fitz one last time. He's an old pro, doing it like no one else can. Too bad they couldn't have found a better coda to this character.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
