Since DCI Sam Tyler awoke, dazed from a car accident, things have felt a little off kilter. About 33 years off kilter. No rational explanation is forthcoming. He's dreaming. He's in a coma. Maybe he's lost just a few of his marbles. A passionate, meticulous, modern policeman, Sam still conflicts with his chain-smoking, bigoted, and dangerously dodgy colleagues at every turn. And none more so than his Guv, DCI Gene Hunt. But Sam continues to strive to use his knowledge and the techniques of the future to solve crimes as he would do in the present. As he does so each case offers some key to the mystery of Sam's life. Gradually the messages appear to be linking up to form a meaning. However the meaning is something that chills Sam to the core, he now has to consider whether the retro life he assumes has any real foundations. If so, how on earth is Sam Tyler going to get back home . . . And where, and when would that home be?

|5||VideoEpisode 5||Sam Tyler has been on sick leave for a couple of days, but he still feels strange – at least, stranger than normal. This becomes apparent when he gets vivid hallucinations about what CID is doing. Whilst trying to work out why on earth this is happening, he also has to take command of an urgent investigation. Sam stumbles into A-division, dazed and confused, and sees a man about to hang himself from the canteen ceiling. Sam Tyler is needed.||51:57||£1.89||View in iTunes|
|6||VideoEpisode 6||DCI Gene Hunt and the team are called to the scene of a shooting of a young Ugandan Asian man, Dipack. As usual, Gene jumps to conclusions and assumes it is drug-related after finding a suspicious bag of white powder on the body. However, Sam has to ensure the bigoted, knee-jerk attitude of the police doesn’t condemn the new immigrant community before a fair hearing.||52:26||£1.89||View in iTunes|
|7||VideoEpisode 7||Sick of trying to comfort a self-pityingly drunk and angry Gene Hunt, Sam goes home. He is woken in the middle of the night by Hunt, who tells him, “I appear to have killed someone.” A local underworld bookie has been shot. While Sam gets to work on proving his obstreperous colleague’s innocence, he himself is being monitored by the stand-in DCI, Frank Morgan from Hyde division, a man intent on doing the internal investigation by the book.||51:38||£1.89||View in iTunes|
|8||VideoEpisode 8||Whilst Sam is in utter turmoil, he has little time to work out who to trust as he and his team head into lethal danger, facing down enemies on both sides of the law. But even he could not picture how disastrously events unfold when CID begins to learn the truth about Sam Tyler, just as a heist is in progress. All Sam’s, and our own, presumptions about his past, his future and his very soul begin to unravel in a heart-stopping climax.||53:06||£1.89||View in iTunes|

Life on Mars is easily one of the best, if not the best, drama to have been on Brit TV for the last couple of years - I was totally hooked when it was broadcast, right to the end, and glad to see it here. Funny, witty, crazy, but also touching (maybe because I was also five in 1973, just like Sam). And Gene Hunt's exacting skill in (not so politically correct) one liners makes Hollywood's greatest talkers look like extras a big silent movie. If you've not seen it... well, where have you been?! Mars!? You've missed out. Biggety big time. Get it. Now. Before I send in the armed b**tards with guns...
At last a good auld British tv series, was fed up seeing US programes on iTunes. This is a fantastic series, Thankyou BBC.
