5.0 out of 5 stars Keeley and Philip more than do the business in this 5-star affair, 22 April 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Ashes to Ashes: Complete BBC Series 1 [2008] [DVD] (DVD)
Keeley Hawes has more than proved her worth as D.I. Alex Drake alongside the foul-mouthed but irreverently funny always non-PC, Gene Hunt, played by the talented Philip Glenister. The show is different from Life on Mars, but with a variety of wonderfully and aptly selected 80's music - but then, this is a different show and proudly so.

Ashes to Ashes is all about the 1980s and the plots, characters and music as well as the two central characters I feel lift the show from being a mere follow-on to being a highly entertaining, well-crafted and superbly acted series. There is wonderful British humour and irony mixed in with class-clashes, male-female tension and that feeling that the 80s must have been a challenging but fun time to be a policewoman. You will not regret buying this.
