Before he portayed everybody's favorite half-giant Hagrid in the Harry potter movies, Robbie Coltrane was perhaps best known to UK viewers as Fitz in the TV show Cracker back in the early '90s. The series was so good, in fact, that in a recent poll Robbie's old show was voted the best TV drama of all time.
It beat the likes of Brideshead Revisited, The Singing Detective and The Forsyte Saga in the poll.
Coltrane earned three Baftas for his portrayal of hard-drinking criminal psychologist Eddie ‘Fitz’ Fitzgerald in the show.
