Despite reservations that the series was only given life because of the success of Life of Mars, Ashes to Ashes stands on its own two feet as a fantastic police drama.
The story blends gentle science fiction expected of Hollywood blockbusters with the classic police dramas that Britain seems so well at churning out. The dialogue is realistic and never overhammed, but still manages to pull in the laughs at the right opportunities. The character interplay is fantastic and as opposed to the series that came bofore they develop some real growth.
Clearly anyone a fan of Life of Mars should invest in this series and anyone who come across this series afresh I recommend you approach with an open mind.
