5.0 out of 5 stars A first class Companion book for a first class series,
This review is from: "Life on Mars" (Mass Market Paperback)I love the quality of this book. The weight and feel of it are first class and physically it is a beautiful book.
Now for what's inside.
I love the intimate nature of the behind the scene insights the book has. I've read other companion books and they usually have a textbook feel about them, this is what the show is about and here is the lesson on how we got there. Like the boring high school teacher who taught Math. This book is like the crazy history teacher who dressed up like Napoleon to teach the chapter on the Battle of Waterloo. It has the fan feeling about it, like they actually watched the show with the rest of us and being fans themselves, knew what a fan would want.
I love the behind the scene pictures, especially the class picture with everyone draped around the Cortina at the end of filming the last episode.
I love the fact that we get complete music listings for every episode because now I can finally finish my LoM Mix CD.
I love the "Interviews" with all the characters from the show. I think my favorite one is DC Skelton's.
Simply put, I love everything about this book except for the fact that I will probably have to buy a second one so that I can keep one of them perfect and manhandle the second one to death.
Full marks Guy and Lee. Bring on the next one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent - A labour of love maybe by the writers?,
This review is from: "Life on Mars" (Mass Market Paperback)This book is everything that 'Spooks - Behind The Scenes' isn't. It's clear here that the writer and designer know and love the series and have put a lot of effort in. Not only is there background on the production, but there is even an attempt to flesh out the characters even more with elements of fiction, like stories in an tv annual.
Speaking of which, the design of the book is fantastic. The idea of making the bookcover beneath the dust-jacket look like a typical tv annual from 1973 is an inspired one, and perfectly in keeping with the style and spirit of the show.
I can't recommend it highly enough.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great TV,
This review is from: "Life on Mars" (Mass Market Paperback)We love this series. It was great watching it on TV and I was worried about watching it again so soon (two years), but it is like we were watching it for the first time. There were so many things we missed the first time through. The picture, sound and subtitles are great.
5.0 out of 5 stars You must have your own copy if you are the fan of Life on Mars,
This review is from: "Life on Mars" (Mass Market Paperback)With this excellent quality of book in hand, you will definitely feel more about the whole series of Life on Mars. You gonna love it!
