Product Description

Product Description

Crazy, in a coma, or back in time? Struck by a passing car in modern-day Manchester, detective Sam Tyler (John Simm, State of Play, Doctor Who) wakes up in 1973, where he's the newest member of his old police squad. Sam's respect for proper procedure and 21st-century mentality clash mightily with his bullying boss, DCI Gene Hunt (Philip Glenister, Cranford). Still, Sam gamely adapts to crime solving in this retro world, despite hearing strange voices that call him back to his former life. When he bonds with sympathetic policewoman Annie Cartwright (Liz White, The Fixer), Sam wonders: does he really want to return?

Winner of two International Emmys® for best drama series.

Bloody brilliant! Anyone who disagrees must not know how infectious this series is, especially when viewed as a microcosm of stereotypes. The US version pales in comparison and Gene Genie ripping around in his Ford Cortina makes Harvey Keitel look like a senior having a...well...a senior moment! And I'm not even British!!

A police procedure with a time travel twist. John Simm is wonderful as a Manchester policeman who finds himself in 1973 when policing was very, very different. Is he in a coma or is he truly in 1973? The only criticism I have is that the Guv, the chief inspector, was a little over the top. I worked for a Canadian police force in 1980 and even then they did not approve of policemen beating up suspects. Otherwise very enjoyable and very realistic.

Seen it before and bought the whole set. We watched it all over 4 evenings. Great entertainment. Unbelievable contrast from 40 years ago (it's set in 1973) with regard to attitude of men to women and police attitude to everyone and coming from England we lived through it.! Story takes so many twists that when the end comes you are still not sure what just happened.
However, having had our appetites whetted, now disappointed that we can't get the sequel "Ashes to Ashes" on DVD for region 1!!
Worth every penny and recommended to anyone who was a fan of the 70's and cop shows.

Life on Mars is one of the two British series I've enjoyed so far, the other being Sherlock. The song selections were fantastic and it's one of the shows that I can absolutely love all the characters. They've spent some time too to design the dvd according to the show so that was a bonus.
