I have purchased both the American version and this, the UK version, of this series as they are way above the average TV fare. Emotional, gripping and entertaining. Both are about a man who has either time-travelled, is in a coma or something else. The UK Gene Hunt is a really powerfull character, so over-blown you wonder what he's going to do next. The story lines with the UK and American versions are mostly the same but with many differences. The greatest difference being the final episode, which are totally different. I must say the American ending was TOTALLY BRILLIANT and made a lot more sense. Having said that, I love having both versions as I now have thirty-three episodes to enjoy instead of just sixteen. I give this a Gold Star.
