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.

5.0 out of 5 stars The good one March 30 2013

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Time Travel or is it? Feb. 23 2013
Verified Purchase
I found this UK series intriguing. A modern policeman puts his modern-day insights to the previous generations cases. In some cases he learns a lot from the 70's cops.
