  • I have always enjoyed the back to the future type stories and this is no exception

      If you watched Life on Mars last year then you will surely be watching this and it is proving to be just as enjoyable.

      Similar to Life on Mars a cop is injured and wakes up in the past and the main characters they meet are the same. These characters where great, so it is good to get a second helping of them, especially Gene Hunt the DCI played by

      Philip Glennister.

      It is now 1981 and Keeley Hawes plays Alex Drake, a police psychologist in present day, who has been transported to the fantasy world of the same characters from Life on Mars. She realises that having studied the case notes of Sam Tyler (Life on Mars) she has some how summoned up this situation in her own sub conscience, after being shot. She needs to get back to modern times where she has a daughter Molly.

      Being a girl ahead of her time it is very satisfying (speaking as a girl myself) to witness Alex showing the boys a thing or two about police work. The characters work well together, even though some of them are more charicatures. The serious story lines have a large amount of comedy mixed really well with them and the hint of sexual attraction between ...

      Alex and Gene adds interest.

      There is a new case each week but the continuing theme is Alex and her quest to figure out what is happening to her. It sounds so far fetched, especially the scenes where she meets with her mother, who really doesn’t like her. It looks to me like she is at some point going to try to prevent the death of her parents. I still

      find it very convincing though, as a story.

      I have always enjoyed the back to the future type stories and this is no exception. I can’t wait to see how this story progresses. Will Alex get back to her time? Will she meet herself? Will she or won’t she get together with Gene Hunt? Will she give up seeing her daughter again to remain in the time she currently exists in, or does she?

      A must see.
