Sam Tyler is BACK!!!
13 February 2007 | by guy-drakewilkesSee all my reviews

Sam Tyler returns in Life On Mars, a story of a man who has been knocked unconscious in a road accident in 2006 and wakes up in 1973! Series 2 starts with Sam still in 1973 as part of the CID team led by Gene Hunt (Philip Glenister) and he is still haunted by 'future images' as he lies in a coma in 2006 but there is a shocking new twist in this episode. With Marc Warren guesting as a shady character who Sam has dealt with in the future there is a race against time as Sam needs to sort out matters in 1973 so that his 2006 self doesn't come to any harm.

Gripping stuff!!
