I will never remember Camberwick Green in the same way again!,
This review is from: Life on Mars : Complete BBC Series 2  [DVD] (DVD)
I am one of those sad individuals who learn about a rave new TV show two thirds the way into the second series and as such, having missed the first series and a half, had no idea what to expect. The first episode I watched in both series was the final one of series 2. My timing has never been that good!
So when Ashes To Ashes came on I watched all of that - and look forward to the chance to get my hands on Keeley Hawes (did I mean that?) again when it comes out on DVD. So, to get the gist, I bought series 1 a couple of weeks ago and series 2 last week. Then, after a lot of watching DVDs I understood that final episode - or did I?
The whole idea is unique in a sense, unless you discount Dr Sam Beckett, for that is another series altogether, and the creation of DCI Gene Hunt is altogether fantastic but what entertainment! Laugh? There were moments I was crying with laughter. My wife says he reminds her of me - Mmmm.
But I was not prepared for the opening sequence for the later episode in series 2 which began with a mock version of Camberwick Green, with Sam Tyler coming out of the box to be asked how he was doing. What happened next was a coffee moment - if I had a cat it would have been covered!
Buy this, along with series 1 and have a great time. I cannot wait to sit and watch the whole thing once again, from start to finish.
Great TV. Worth the licence fee just to watch this!
