Dr Edward "Fitz" Fitzgerald is a criminal psychologist. He is rather anti-social and obnoxious but he has a gift for solving crimes. Thus he is employed as a consultant by the Manchester Police.
Robbie Coltrane was primarily known as a comedic actor before the series. He was cast based on his performance in Alive and Kicking (1993).
It must be hard to maintain that level of cynicism, Dr. Fitzgerald.
Fitz: Not at all, Father. It must be hard to maintain that level of faith.
All the stories were originally shown on ITV in several parts, each of one hour (including commercials). However they were later released on DVD as a single episode per story, with a combined cast list rather than the one from the end-credit sequence of any of the transmitted parts of the story.
