I'm still not loving the idea. It's silly, because I came to Life on Mars for Phil and Phil alone. You'd think I'd be well chuffed about a show that's been created because Phil is just so damn good at playing his character. But I'm not. They got it mostly right the first time, why do they feel the need to try and replicate it? The things they got wrong, well, they don't see them as wrong, so there's nothing new to be gained.
I guess the thing that gets me is that it's not really a spin off, is it? It's a sequel. Three of the main characters, same basic plotline - it's Look Who's Mad, In a Coma, or Back in Time 2: Electric Boogaloo. And whilst I'm sure it really will be entertaining, I'm not sure I see the point.
