In the middle of February 1994, Dennis Potter was told that he had cancer of the pancreas and only had a few months to live. He began to wind up practical and financial problems and discovered that the most important thing for him to do was to complete the two TV-series he had undertaken to write, Karaoke and Cold Lazarus. Both were intended to be six episodes long. Dennis Potter made a very detailed schedule. He calculated how many episodes he could write every day, from the time that the morphine had alleviated his pain to when he had taken so much that his consciousness was affected. He questioned his doctors about how much time he had left, he added and divided. 480 pages in five days - he would be finished in mid April, giving him a reasonably wide margin if the doctor’s prognosis was correct.
