YA RLY, apparently:
Fear not, fans of John Simm drama Life on Mars, about to start its second – and final – series. Monkey hears that plans are afoot for a further time-travelling show featuring another police officer catapulted back from the future to Philip Glenister’s cop shop. Except this time round it’s a few years later – the 1980s rather than the 1970s – and there will be a new soundtrack, new cop car (Sierra rather than Cortina?) and a new title: why, Ashes to Ashes, of course. And it may even be a woman officer who goes back in time, which will presumably annoy DCI Gene Hunt even more. Less Sweeney, more Juliet Bravo, perhaps.
