Coltrane was so good in the series Cracker. Brilliant, undisciplined, driven by appetites; maddening and exciting all at once. Hours of screen time portraying a complex, human protagonist.

And he's remembered for a few minutes of on-screen time as a half-human caretaker.

He drinks too much, he eats too much, he is too much. I remember that tag line from the adverts about Cracker. It was a good show

Fun fact: Geraldine Somerville played DS Jane Penhaligon alongside Coltrane in Cracker and also Lily Potter in the HP films.
