Is there Life on Mars?...

My favourite film growing up was Back to the Future, I’ve been in love with Philip Glenister since seeing him in Hornblower: Mutiny and John Simm has always reminded me of Simon Pegg (something which was joked about in Spaced), so the chances of me adoring Life on Mars were exceedingly high – and of course, turned out to be extremely well-founded. Oh, I’ve also always loved the Bowie song the title is based on.

It’s well written, well acted and beautifully shot. The soundtrack is brilliant. It’s clever, mysterious, suspenseful and generally just a Good Show. I adored the first episode of Life on Mars and can’t wait to see more.

It's about a DCI - Sam, who has an accident in 2006 and "wakes up" in 1973 Britain. Is he a time traveller? Is it all in his head? He doesn't know. As he's trying to figure it all out, he's solving crime. Life on Mars is therefore combining two of my favourite types of show - sci-fi and british cop drama, with a smattering of period piece thrown in for good measure.

And now, some icons (these are for anyone who wants them, as long as they know how to credit)...

Philip Glenister is just… the best. He really is. I love this guy’s acting. He never fails to please me. And Gene Hunt is such an interesting character. I like him, even though I feel like I shouldn’t. It’s the kind of character our Philip plays best. Complex, dark, against many of your beliefs, but somehow likeable.

John Simm is also fantastic as Sam Tyler.

And together, they rock my socks.
