Don't tell me about Part 6 yet
Thanks to computers I was able to see this series in its entirety after 40 years of remembrance.
It's still great-- way beyond good. And this is not in the campy sense either. And apparently it is in good availability now. I discovered that the local library system has it though not at my immediate location and so was not aware of it locally.
The work of Dennis Potter has to be seen as it was meant to be which is in the mini-series.
I don't even remember the Steve Martin H'wood version though I know I saw it as a rental.
Same deal with The Singing Detective. I wouldn't even watch the H'wood version and I do not know how Robert Downey Jr. continues to get work.
