This is the unabridged original text of Dennis Potter's acclaimed six-part television serial.
The narrative counterpoints life in a hospital ward of a writer crippled by a horrific skin disease with the plot of his atmospheric thriller to the point where fantasy and reality seem to exchange places.
The result is the most painful and disturbing screen drama of the 1980s.
