Many will focus on the earlier series Life On Mars that spawned Ashes To Ashes, but for me, this sequel is much better, and I have enjoyed the series immensely. Life On Mars was brilliant in it's own right, but I believe Ashes To Ashes has taken that and extended the brilliance further. Not only do you have the essence of of the original series, but Keeley Hawes is surpassing the achievements of John Simm, and the new supporting characters are top class.

Don't get me wrong about Life On Mars, I love it as well, and also enjoyed the USA take on it. I have included a section on this page for Life On Mars.
