Life on Mars

Series 1 - Episode 1



Fantasy drama, starring John Simm as a detective who ends up in a coma while pursuing a serial killer - and when he comes round, he finds he has somehow been transported back to 1973. As he attempts to uncover what has happened to him, he must also contend with the macho behaviour of his Sweeneyesque colleagues, as well as a murderer whose crimes are oddly similar to the one he was investigating in his own time.
