Dennis Potter At London Weekend Television: Volume 1 Film Poster


Three television plays by the controversial and award-winning writer, made for ITV in 1980 and available for the first time since the original broadcast. In 'Blade on the Feather', a reclusive writer who lives on a secluded estate is visited by a young man who claims to be an admirer of his work. As the two men get to know each other, it becomes clear that the purpose of the young man's visit is to uncover a dark secret in the writer's past. In 'Rain on the Roof', a dysfunctional couple are being slowly torn apart by adultery and jealousy. When Janet (Cheryl Campbell) starts flirting with the simple-minded Billy (Ewan Stewart) while giving him a reading lesson, as a form of revenge against her philandering husband, Billy begins to take out his own resentments and frustrations against John (Malcolm Stoddard). Finally, in 'Cream in My Coffee', an elderly couple explore the memories of their relationship after they visit the hotel where they first met.
