The International Emmy®-winning series seen on BBC America
Same place, same job. Different time, different rules. That’s the situation facing detective Sam Tyler (John Simm, State of Play) in this British drama that TV Guide calls "an entertaining collision of bare-knuckled police-procedural realism and mind-blowing surrealism."
Knocked unconscious by a hit-and-run driver in 21st-century Manchester, Tyler wakes up in 1973. Is he dreaming, time traveling, or just plain crazy? Whatever the case, he might as well have landed on another planet. Although shocked by the brutality of his bullying boss (Philip Glenister, Cranford) and the callousness of his squad mates, Sam gamely adapts to crime solving in this retro world. But even as romance blossoms with policewoman Annie (Liz White, The Fixer), mysterious voices from his former life keep calling him home. Trapped in the past, he must decide where his future lies--and how to get there--in the tension-filled finale.

Just watched the series again. It is so much better than the American version. The depiction of life in the 70s was quiet accurate. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Greg

This is a great show. One of my all time favorite British TV shows. One cannot help but be drawn into Sam Tyler's story wondering what is real and what is not. A must watch.... Read morePublished 17 months ago by Lynette

I got onto the British version after watching the U.S. version on streaming Netflix - signed up for Amazon prime because of this.
So much better - the U.S. Read more
Great show, but these "region free" blu-rays will only give US/Region 1 viewers access to the programme itself...not the extras! So do not buy if you are a fan of extras!Published on July 17, 2012 by Miss N
