I loved life on mars ( i was only a little girl in the 70`s)but Ashes to Ashes Has to be the best programe on Tv at the moment,I felt like i my self had been transformed back to 1981, I love the 1980`s it was the best time of my life. The scrips, the costumes, have had some reserch, I cannot fault the show at all(this may be a little early to comment) but i dont think it will fail me.

It is unfortunate that the producers decided to go with a tongue in cheek approach to this series. Life on Mars was more gritty and gripping.

If you like a tongue in cheek then this production is fine, well done. Personally I enjoy a straighter production. The costumes that Alex Drake wears are bizarre and erodes credibility. In fact, the characters are more caricatures.

Gene Hunt and his two cronies are effectively a comedy trio. Which is a pity as Gene was a superb role in Life on Mars.

The first episode has a shoot out with the baddies, that could have come from the Keystone cops! Both Chris Skelton and Ray Carling's characters would fit better in the 80s comedy Hi De Hi...

Overall, the programme is to viewing, as to what fast food is to dining. Ok at time but quickly forgetable...

Loved all the series on the tv and so wanted the dvds. Set in the 80s with the music its just brilliant. Gene Hunt (wow) and Alex have a strong connection and you are always left wondering are they going to get together or not. All the characters make it a brilliant series and well worth watching.

Funny, exciting and nostalgic with 80's music and 80's humour combining to make a very enjoyable series (even better with NO ADVERTS!!!)

I'll keep this brief....
- Gene Hunt and his crew are charismatic, entertaining characters that continue to be utterly compelling.
- The 70's setting was more amusing than the 80's but the anachronistic stuff is still amusing if sometimes slightly forced.
- Our replacement time traveller is not particularly likeable, convincing or intriguing. Where we might have empathised Sam's plight in the previous series,( i.m.o it's ridiculous not to make the comparison ), the less time this irritating lady is on screen the happier I am!
- Both series have ridiculous and somewhat boring central 'sci fi / fantasy' themes. This one's is lame.
A summary is difficult as it's such a mixed bag. It is disappointing compared to Life On Mars but, as another reviewer pointed out, still a lot better than most of the tripe on TV these days.
I love seeing Gene and co doing there thing BUT let me just say this. When I realised that there would have to be another series to sit through my heart sank. Hmmmm........

I had seen the ending but missed the start so I purchased this first series of Ashes to Ashes. Great entertainment but I am still confused.
