Ashes to Ashes
For a while, I thought that Life On Mars was going to turn into real Science Fiction, but despite the entertaining triple bluff ending, it didn't really. And now all semblance of internal consistency is (probably) being thrown out the window by making a sequel, which is exactly the same as Life On Mars, but set in 1981.
It's 1981 and DCI Gene Hunt is back and he's swapped his Ford Cortina for an Audi Quattro, but is the 'The Manc Lion' we met in Life on Mars turning soft?
