Next Episode of The Singing Detective is
not planed. TV Show was canceled.
"The Singing Detective" is a BBC television serial drama, written by Dennis Potter, which stars Michael Gambon. The serial was broadcast in the United Kingdom on BBC1 in 1986 on Sunday nights from 16 November to 21 December with later PBS and cable television showings in the United States. Mystery writer Philip E. Marlow is suffering writer's block and is hospitalised because his psoriatic arthropathy, a chronic skin and joint disease, is at an acute stage forming lesions and sores over his entire body, and partially cripples his hands and feet. As a result of constant pain, a fever caused by the condition, and his refusal to take medication, Marlow falls into a fantasy world involving his Chandleresque novel, The Singing Detective, an escapist adventure about a detective (also named "Philip Marlow") who sings at a dance hall and takes the jobs "the guys who don't sing" won't take.
What is the connection between the beady private eye crooning soft songs at the Laguna, and the disfigured man struggling for his sanity in a hospital bed?
Why does the small boy spy from the top of the tree, and who is the naked girl dragged out of the murky Thames? The clues are bloody and tangled, but the singing detective knows that the answers will eventually jump out of him as long as he keeps singing the right tunes.
There's always a dame.
There's always a body too. I know that, you know that. And you're looking a trifle pale, pal. Who's trying to swing you into this number? And are you as nervous as you seem?
'Summat's wrong! This 'int right! Where's our Dad then? What be they looking at I for? Is it my fault? I a' gone and done it again!'
