A lot of fun
13 July 2017 | by studioATSee all my reviews

After a lot of set up in the first episode, which all shows have to do, 'Life on Mars' settles into a bit of a natural rhythm, with the time travel element running alongside the cop show format, which sees Hunt and Tyler attempt to solve a crime in their own very different ways.

This is another good episode of the much loved show, that deserves the acclaim it gained at the time of broadcast.
