Cold Lazarus

3

Dennis Potter's posthumous serials...

Dennis Potter's final, posthumous, serials sum up a life’s work to playful and poignant effect.

In the surreal Karaoke, Albert Finney’s ailing writer Daniel Feeld is convinced that his latest drama is reoccurring in reality, while Cold Lazarus shows scientists mining memories from his cryogenically frozen head 400 years later.

Lazarus’ generic dystopia may be disappointing after Karaoke’s caustic wit, but Potter’s passion and ambition, undimmed on his deathbed, make today’s tyros look lazy.
