Reminds You Why You Loved The 80's,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Ashes to Ashes - Complete BBC Series 1-3 (New Packaging) [DVD] (DVD)
This show is the spin off to the Police Drama Life on Mars which saw DCI Sam Tyler be hit by a car and wake up in 1973. This time it's DI Alex Drake who gets shot and wakes up in 1981. The show's third series see Alex try to understand why she is here, who is DCI Gene Hunt and most importantly make it home to her daughter. The show is well written and even though it is a drama it still managed to throw in a good laugh. Needless to say this is a great show if you are looking for a good mystery to get stuck into. The last episode does answer all questions including those unanswered from Life on Mars. Each Series contains 8 episodes of 1 hour each. The box set itself is nice and small and fits neatly onto shelves. A Good Purchase. If you find you enjoy it, try LIfe On Mars and if you watched Life on Mars and are unsure of watching Ashes to Ashes, don't be. The show keeps up the standard of it's prequel and Alex Drake gives Gene Hunt a run for his money.
