COLD LAZARUS is the second of the two last television dramas written by the acclaimed TV playwright Dennis Potter. Having been diagnosed with terminal cancer and with less than six months to live, Potter undertook a race against mortality to complete two television dramas which were uniquely to be shared between Channel 4 and the BBC. In a televised interview with Melvyn Bragg he said “My only regret is if I die four pages too soon.” He didn’t – and the result is a fitting tribute to a life committed to the creation of some of the finest television drama ever written.

In a future almost 400 years hence, a group of scientists gather to watch the projected memories of a human brain – the cryogenically stored brain of writer Daniel Feeld. The memories offer a new kind of reality, a new kind of freedom in a world that is far from free. Brutal rebels whose motto is Reality or Nothing take life indiscriminately – and armed retaliation by the state can be no less deadly. Under pressure from rival corporate interests, each threatening to pull the plug at any moment, the scientists fall victim to the tricks that memory can play, picking at threads as they try to comprehend how personal histories are written – and can be rewritten. As elements of truth and fiction explosively intertwine, will the mind of Daniel Feeld finally be set free?
