A ‘Cracker’ in the UK is a slang term referring to a ‘Forensic Psychologist’ – usually a fully qualified individual who works on a ‘Consultative’ basis with the Police Service. This is why a ‘Cracker’ (someone who ‘cracks’ cases open and thus reveals their inter workings) is also referred to as a ‘Criminal Psychologist’. The original series of ‘Cracker’ came to an end with a one-off ‘Special’ set in Hong Kong during the 1996 events leading to the UK handing-back the former colony to Mainland China in 1997. Ten years later, the main actor – Robbie Coltrane – was given the chance of yet another one-off episode – now involving early smart-phones and the internet! This 2006 episode is entitled ‘Nine Eleven’ and examines the US-sponsorship of international terrorism – but declared war on the very same terrorism it has supported for decades following the 911 terrorist attacks upon the World Trade Buildings in New York! Despite the US using the right-wing as a means to attack and destroy all Socialist regimes and movements – the US government provided money, arms and ammunition to the Provisional Irish Republican Army (IRA) – a traditionally ‘left-wing’ movement which followed Marxist-Leninism during the 1916 Easter Uprising! Yes – the US provided the means for Irish terrorists to kill British soldiers patrolling the streets of Northern Ireland! So much for the so-called ‘Special Relationship’!
