Goofs

The calendar in Alex's flat suggests that the events take place on and about 12 August 1981. One of the songs played in the club scene is "Don't You Want Me" by The Human League. This track was on the album Dare, which wasn't released until 20 October 1981. Originally considered by the band to be a "filler" track, it wasn't released as a single until 5 December 1981.

DI Alex Drake: What am I doing here really? What is the point of all this?
DCI Gene Hunt: To dress like a tart, wiggle your arse in my direction, and fill my days with glimpses of the depths of your depraved mind? It's good enough for me, Bolly.

Another good episode
27 August 2017 | by studioATSee all my reviews

This is another good episode of 'Ashes to Ashes', a decent show in its own right, while perhaps not currently as strong as 'Life on Mars' which it was spun off from.

There were some lovely tender scenes between Keeley Hawes and Russell Tovey, and these were actually my favourite moments, though there were some great comedy moments from Gene and co too.

This is an episode that touches on some important themes.
