John Simm stars in the Emmy Award-winning Life on Mars, a fast-paced suspenseful crime series with a twist. After a near-fatal car crash Detective Sam Tyler finds himself mysteriously transported to 1973. Is he in a coma? Has he gone crazy? Or has he really travelled back in time?

Smart, savvy, sharp-suited detective Sam is at the top of his game. Cool, calm and collected, if he were a flavor he’d be spearmint. Sam has ultimate control over his work, his life and his relationships.
