Reviews

All seven episodes of the second series of the acclaimed BBC police drama starring John Simm and Philip Glenister. Detective Sam Tyler (Simm) is a professional 21st-century cop, keeping the streets of Manchester clean. But when he is run over in a near-fatal hit and run accident, he wakes up to find himself seemingly transported back in time to 1973. Trying to adjust to the archaic and sometimes brutal methods of Seventies police work, Sam frequently clashes with his abrasive, hard-drinking DCI, Gene Hunt (Glenister), but finds a sympathetic friend in WPC Annie Cartwright (Liz Smith). But is Sam just imagining all this? Is he in a coma? Or is he really back in time?

Great follow up to first series. You cant help but love Gene Hunt. Great story lines, especially episode 4 involving wife-swapping! The banter between Gene, Sam, Ray & Chris is amusing. Well acted, good scripts, comical moments and throughly enjoyable. Set in the seventies makes for amusing watching, the colours,the music, the lack of technology that we have today. You wont be disappointed.

If you were around in the seventies and enjoying it then you love this. The series really captures the essence of the time. Not many computers, no e.mails, no mobile phones, how on earth did we communicate. Great fashion and dodgy cars.
Each episode leaves you wanting more. The direction and actors are both great and the blu-ray quality is stunning

enjoy

This second series is fantastic. It challenges both how far reality can willingly be suspended and how far plot-tastic (if there is such an word) characters that are trying not to and trying to both save and kill our (rather surprising) hero from his (internally chosen) present and his (uncomfortably sudden and painful) reality (or at least his apparent present in 2006). Whilst the ending is (on the one hand) a realistic and engaging representation of Manchester in 2006, the final moments are a wonderfully ironic (and realistic?) assessment of modern life. Every episode is wonderfully created and delivered. I haven't seen Ashes to Ashes but if this was a case of Absolute Beginners then Let's Dance.....

So many times I have wathced really good series which have been ruined by being dragged on for too long, or with a weak ending (Lost was the worst example ever - what a let down!) This time the writers/ producers went out on a real high. I could happily have watched Sam's adventures for longer, but the ending is so brilliant and so well filmed that I feel anything but let down by their decision to end it leaving us wanting more. The acting is grea, the music is great, the atmosphere is great, and teh ending is everything I could have hoped for and more!
An all round joy!

This has to be one of the best TV programmes ever made and is well worth buying purely for this reason alone, as an added bonus if you're aged over 50 you come away from watching this feeling nostalgic as hell, well worth the money spent 10/10

Life on Mars is my single favorite TV show of all time, and amazing show, with a fantastic cast, and a story that just doesn't quit. A must see.

The Blu-ray disc are the best I have ever seen it look, though it looks like the transfer is interlaced instead of progressive, which does detract a bit from the quality of the presentation. Actually I wonder what frame rate this is running at because it plays fine on US Blu-ray players, which made me think it was 24p, but then you wouldn't see the interlacing.

I have read on various places on the Internet that the BLU-RAY versions of LIFE ON MARS were missing extras,well this is not true,as the people who said that had never checked to see in the first place!.
These editions have ALL the extras that were included on the DVD versions,and with BLU-RAY it is a TWO DISC set,unlike the DVD set of FOUR,so that means you can watch four episodes on one disc which also has extras as well.
The show is fantastic,and i hope they release the BLU-RAY editions of ASHES TO ASHES as well!!!.

Great characters, interesting plots ,fab actors . The sexism is true ..... Brought back unpleasant memories of my time at work in a male dominated profession, but , great fun watching the characters interact .
