Any Life on Mars watchers here? I thought it was a classic show, very intruiguing and best of all set right here in Manchester! Now the BBC has commisioned a sequel set in London in the 1980's. Philip Glenister (or Gene Hunt) is the only cast member to return. When I heard this news I was devastated. Typical of thos damn southerners at the BBC to take a great show set in Manchester, take the best actor out of it and then set it in London. There are loads of great BBC shows in London, why do they need another?
