Excellent performances from the leads, Phillip Glenister and John Simm, but the rest of the cast more than do their own bits to make this watchable time and time again.
Oh, and of course, possibly the *most* satisfying conclusion to a tv series *ever* :)
John Simms is, as always, excellent in the lead role, and particular praise to Phil Gennister who has, in the role of Gene Hunt, being given continuously frankly superb dialogue and made it even better by his acting skills.
This is a series to cherish and revisit on a regular basis. Comparisons have been made to The Sweeney, but that is quite a myopic point of view; this is so much more, and will have you guessing how it concludes. Indeed, it's conclusion is an interesting talking point, one to discuss with those in the know for years to come. 10/10!
I am so glad I did - Life on Mars now has a position in my top 20 series of all time. Each episode was full of mystery, action and irreverent fun! Just thinking about the series makes me laugh.
John Sim and Phillip Glenister were the BEST - they developed such memorable one of a kind characters that will stand the test of time.
The ending was one of the best in TV!!
Although the US version had some really first class actors, the remake for our market just missed the mark and I am so glad I decided to 'catch' the original.
I recommend that everyone have a copy in their DVD library.
I wish the scientists already invented the device for erasing memories out of one's mind, so I could rewatch the series again and again and again with the same fresh, puzzled and clueless eyes as the first time!
