life on mars :D, 2 Sep 2007
i did actually come into watching life on mars quite late...what a mistake. easily one of the best shows ever put on our television. i thought john simm was a good actor (ok id only seen him as the master in doctor who but that was enough) but after watching this im certain he is one of the best actors around at the moment...he makes this show and im not sure it would have been as good if another actor were tohave played Sam Tyler.
i love the whole mystery surrounding how he got into 1973 and believe it to be incredable well written.
the second series is a lot darker than the first but just a good because of the difference...in the 2nd series we see sam struggling to come to terms with the person he has become.
the ending left me crying but extremly happy because Sam is a character who i deeply began to care about...partly because of the writing but mostly because of simms fantastic acting skills.
a must for anyone who has yet to see it 10/10
