LIFE ON MARS is a throwback to the crime-fighting style of the 1970s, drawing its inspiration from such TV series as THE SWEENEY and THE PROFESSIONALS. As was characteristic of classic 60s fantasy, the creators have taken some risks with the show’s politically incorrect references, daring to be slightly subversive. While its creators are quick to brush off comparisons to fellow time-travelling TV series QUANTUM LEAP, there are obvious thematic similarities, however unconscious. John Simm (HUMAN TRAFFIC) ably stars as Sam Tyler, the fish-out-of-water detective who must piece together the mysteries of his own predicament, while solving the crime du jour. The show takes its title from David Bowie’s haunting theme song.







 
50 out of 100  Stunning

One of the best things I've seen in years. Politically incorrect in the most wonderful way, this has you laughing and on the edge of your seat. Recommended to anyone over 25!

Awesome series, just brilliant. Humerous, atmospheric, brilliantly written and truely engages you and lets you sympathise with the protagonist. High quality stuff.
