Crazy, in a coma, or back in time? Struck by a passing car in modern-day Manchester, detective Sam Tyler (John Simm, State of Play, Doctor Who) wakes up in 1973, where he’s the newest member of his old police squad. Sam’s respect for proper procedure and 21st-century mentality clash mightily with his bullying boss, DCI Gene Hunt (Philip Glenister, Cranford).

|Comparing the UK and US versions?||
There isn't a comparison. The UK series is original and monumentally well done. The American version is a cheap knock off with a cop-out (no pun intended) ending. Don't bother with it. And check out the UK sequel which completes the story.

|UK version great!!!!!!!!||
I agree that the UK version is terrific television. I do want to mention the bad service done to viewers by the dvd release: The DVD's appear to be a third generation framerate conversion, from 24fps film to 25fps PAL to 29.97fps DVD. The result is that the dvd's are not optimal quality.... Read More
