Storyline

DCI Gene Hunt is back, but he's no longer the self-styled "Sheriff of Manchester." Flanked by his faithful sidekicks, Ray Carling and Chris Skelton, and drawn by the action and intrigue of the London Met, Gene's turned his attentions to taking on the "southern nancy" criminal scum. However, Gene did not expect to be thrown together with a sexy, intelligent DI Alex Drake. Single mother to daughter Molly, Alex has rapidly risen through the ranks of the Met and, in the modern world of 2008, skillfully uses psychological profiling to capture suspects. When Alex and her daughter are kidnapped, she makes a daring attempt at escape, resulting in a horrific incident. Alex suddenly finds herself in 1981, interacting with familiar characters, not just from her own lifetime, but also from the detailed reports logged by none other than Sam Tyler, which Alex previously spent months poring over. Alex is ripped from her current world of sexual equality and respect in 2008, and finds herself opposite... Written by Ian Wylie

Very impressive
7 February 2008 | by Y-u-n-i-eSee all my reviews

I watched some episodes of "Life on Mars" so when I saw this was on I thought why not. I just finished watching the first episode and I have to say I was very impressed. At first I was very confused but by the end I understood what was going on (for the most part, anyway) and I just thought this was a good first episode. I'll probably watch the next few episodes as I liked this one quite a lot. Like I said I didn't see a lot of Life on Mars so I can't really compare this to that show, but I still liked this one. I loved how they featured the guy from the David Bowie 'Ashes to Ashes' music video, that was very well done. Anyway, I'd say that anyone who liked Life on Mars should watch this. Even if you haven't seen it though, I'd still give this a go. 8/10
