Blip…blip…blip. My review of the second series of Life on Mars.
Starring John Simm, Phillip Glenister, Liz White. Written by Mathew Graham, Directed by Andrew Gunn. On BBC1, 9pm Tuesdays
I think I raved on about how I loved the first series, so I won’t bother doing it again. John Simm is still just as gorgeous. (Did I mention how he smiled at me at Run To the Sun festival in 2001?) (and that’s despite him being with some tall blonde model person) (and despite me being with my husband!) (Oh I did mention it? Sorry!) Where was I? Oh yes, how brilliant Life on Mars is. Truly original (well actually rather similar to the Sweeny and other 70s cop dramas) for our generation and the format works beautifully. If you’ve missed most the series, get the dvd which is out now. I may have to, to find out how it ends.
PS Just seen this week’s episode and the Camberwick Green thing was genius! We want to see a whole series of Life on Mars in Camberwick Green style!
Wow! What a good episode. But then they all have been. This is the best drama series I’ve ever seen on telly ever. Full of action, humour, suspense and a little bit of romance too. Not to mention John Simm to look at…
