      There’s a TV series that has been taking the UK by storm and, if you live outside the UK, it’s quite possible that the BBC will export it to your country. It’s called Ashes to ashes and is a sequel to the series Life on Mars.

      The story in both series is essentially the same: a British cop of today has some kind of accident,


      and transported back through time to Britain of several decades ago. In the case of the current series, Ashes to Ashes, it’s 25 ago and in Life on Mars it was 35 years ago.

      I liked Life on Mars because the social climate and policing methods were so drastically different 35 years ago, so the contrast was greater and more comical. But in Ashes to ...


      • Ashes, things are visually more similar to today, so the differences are more subtle, while a lot of the humour comes from seeing the “dinosaur” police officers (many of whome also featured in Life on Mars, st in the ’70s) trying to adapt to more modern policing methods.

        The main character in Ashes to Ashes, who has been transported back 25 years is both a

        cop and a psychological profiler… and the character is female. At least two out of those three factors would have been unheard of 35 years ago in Britain!

        Added to this there’s a fantastic soundtrack to the Ashes to ashes series, consisting of hits from the 1980s, which makes the show even more nostalgic and appealing to those, like me, who can remember that era.
