The sequel to Life on Mars, Ashes to Ashes, is finally coming to ABC1.
Philip Glenister returns as DCI Gene Hunt but this time he is in the 1980s, flanked by his sidekicks DS Ray Carling (Dean Andrews) and DC Chris Skelton (Marshall Lancaster).
This time he is joined by DCI Alex Drake (Keeley Hawes from Spooks) who finds herself in 1981. But thankfully she had been studying detailed reports logged by Mars‘ Sam Tyler.
Based on another David Bowie song, this series has dragged everything into the Eighties, including swapping the Ford Cortina for a red Audi Quattro.
It premieres 9:35pm Monday August 10 on ABC1.
