All 15 episodes 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? In Series 1, Sam discovers that some of his colleagues are taking bribes from a local gangster, the murder of a Manchester City fan threatens to spark off a riot, and Sam finds himself investigating his own father after he becomes chief suspect in a murder enquiry. In the second series, Sam finds himself investigating I.R.A. bombings, race-hate crimes, and on the trail of a serial killer.
