Episode 2 de 16 Monday 16th January 2006, BBC ONE
Uncertain about whether he really is in 1973, or in a coma in 2006 imagining the whole thing, Sam decides to make the best of his strange situation. But then the team arrest Kim Trent,
an elusive criminal high on the CID's wanted list. When Sam realises that Gene has planted evidence to secure Trent's conviction he intervenes and releases Trent. Gene's furious.
Sam believes that Trent has human rights. Gene believes that human rights are for human beings and Trent doesn't qualify, and besides, Gene's never fitted up anyone who didn't deserve it.
Having been released by Sam, Trent carries on with his spate of robberies and a young cleaner from the station, June, is critically wounded.
This world suddenly seems very real and Gene's methods even more appealing. But Sam knows that losing sight of who he is and what he believes in could take him even further away from 'home'.
Knowing that he has put things right, he successfully mixes his modern day knowledge, with a helping of Gene's unorthodox techniques, to nail Trent and his gang.
The title Life On Mars comes from a track by David Bowie. It can be found on his 1971 album.
Life on Mars is a British science fiction and police drama television series. It was first broadcast on BBC One between January 2006 and April 2007.
CAST: Central characters of the plot
DI Sam Tyler (John Simm) Detective Inspector (in 1973) and Detective Chief Inspector (in 2006).
Sam Tyler, a driven and ambitious young detective, determined to keep the streets of 21st Century Manchester safe. But after a near fatal car accident, he wakes up,
dazed and confused, in 1973. Has he gone back in time? Is he in a coma? Or has he simply gone insane?
What follows is Sam's 21st century account of 1970s life, where he feels like a fish out of water. He must come to terms with an unfamiliar environment and an archaic CID unit.
There, using his modern know-how, he becomes integral to the unit. But he must adapt to their old-fashioned technologies and etiquettes.
Sam works on some of the hardest cases he's ever been involved with. It's a world where witnesses are regularly intimidated,
it takes two weeks to process forensics, and his colleagues will nail their suspect whether they have the evidence or not.
DCI Gene Hunt (Philip Glenister) Detective Chief Inspector.
Gene's an old style cop, not scared of throwing a few punches to get a result.
Sam's new boss is hard-nosed DCI Gene Hunt, who gets results by trusting his gut instinct and, all too often, sheer brute force.
WPC Annie Cartwright (Liz White) Woman Police Constable then later a Woman Detective Constable.
A female in the police at a time when women were often undermined, underused, ignored, and taken for granted.
WPC Annie Cartright, an educated and open minded woman. As well as helping Sam battle criminals, she aids his quest to find the truth about his new circumstances.
DC Chris Skelton (Marshall Lancaster) Detective Constable
Chris is a cheeky but likeable character, who finds himself torn between the modern Sam and old fashioned Gene.
He's a bit of a dogsbody really - Ray and Gene send him on all of the rubbish jobs. When Sam turns up, Chris is impressed by his modern way of thinking.
But that leaves him torn between the differences in the old and new ways of policing. His loyalty is torn between Gene and Sam.
DS Ray Carling (Dean Andrews) Detective Sergeant
Ray's an old style copper, who goes with his gut instinct, often instead of looking at the evidence in front of him.
Basically, Ray's a bull in a china shop. He wades in before thinking. He's a man of his time and is the most un-pc PC.
That's the way that he's been brought through the ranks and he's been channelled in to that way of thinking.
