Life on Mars : Complete BBC Series 2 [2007] [DVD] <b>DVD</b> ~ John Simm
5.0 out of 5 stars UNIQUE !, 11 May 2010
I actually saw the American version first when it aired on ABC. I found the series highly entertaining. However, the ending was quite disappointing.

That being said, the UK version ROCKS! I added to my Netflix que and that as they say is history! Since I was seeing it on DVD, I got to see the episodes in a short time frame and yet I found myself waiting at the mailbox for the next disc. This series is full of little details and lots of color. I was very young in the early seventies, yet the music still brought back memories.

The ending is so moving and emotional. Its American counterpart was just the opposite. This is definately TV worth watching!

I purchased this audio CD to listen to that awesome David Tennant voice. I wish he would say murder over and over again! I was pleasantly suprised by the story. I love a well written mystery, action plot. Follett definately held my interest. And just a side note, I live in the Northern U.S. and the winter weather conditions sound similar in Scotland.

A few times I lost track of how far I had driven down the road. Maybe Tennant's voice can be dangerous while driving! I would definately like to hear David Tennant read another Ken Follett book, however, this time it should be unabridged!!
