The quotes just demonstrate the issues he has coming to terms with being in the past and using modern terminology. The show wasn't that great to me just a bunch of fish out of water things like that happen and the music was great if you are stuck in a 70s mind. It was an okay show but I wasn't satisfied after being strung along. It doesn't pay off imo.

I understand what the sentences in the quotes mean, I just wasn't sure what about them demonstrated the brilliance of the show.

You really need to watch it to understand. It's the whole idea of such a thing as a PC being ingrained into our society as a personal computer, that we forget it was synonymous with coppers. And I laughed heartily at the IC1 male thing: just so him trying to be PC and nobody understanding. There's a lot of that sort of stuff in it. Also, wait till you see the "identity parade". And Gene Hunt.
Enjoy!

DJ I agree it didn't play out that well in the very end (to see the actual ending you have to watch all three seasons of Ashes to Ashes, be warned, as each series of Life on Mars ends on something of a cliffhanger) but I think it was more about the journey and not the destination for me.

I think Life on Mars would have been a much better complete package if it had ended the way that John Simm has said he'd like to it finish ie. never fading back out from black after he jumped, towards the end of the last episode (not wanting to spoil it). But that's just my opinion.

Sorry to continue this off topicness.

And yet you did. I'm sure those who intend to watch now will thank you.

Back on topic, sort of, did anyone else realise (surely did) that the sheriff in "A town called Mercy" was none other than Ben Browder, John Crichton himself from Farscape?

215: Time Flight

Doctor : 5th (Peter Davison)
Companions : Tegan Jovanka (Janet Fielding) Nyssa (Sarah Sutton)
Series : 19
Originally Transmitted: 22nd - 30th March 1982


We've gone back in time to late 1981 ,back to the Doctor Who production office to listen in on a conversation between Doctor Who's producer at the time John Nathan Turner and script editor Eric Saward on the planning of the series finale of Series 19.

...

JNT: Well everything seems to be going well, People like Peter Davison as the Doctor, the viewing figures have gone up, we just bought back the Cybermen and killed a companion. What we need now is a really spectacular ending for this series.


ES: Did you have anything in mind?

JNT: Concorde



ES: Concorde?

JNT: Yes we'll have a story that's about Concorde being hijacked by aliens and taken back in time 140 million years to prehistoric Earth.

ES: OK, and how much money do we have left to do this with.

JNT: Nothing

ES? Nothing?

JNT: Yeah it's all gone, We've blown the lot.

ES: So how are we going to do this?

JNT: Well we could film them all running up & around Heathrow Airport, maybe outside and on the roof as well. That'll fill an episode or two.

ES: And when are we going to do this

JNT: How about in February during the middle of an ice storm?

ES: Hmmm OK, and so are British Airways on board with this?

JNT: Oh yeah, they totally love the idea. It's free advertising for them.

ES: So we can film on board the aircraft?

JNT: Well not exactly, but they say we can film around it outside on the runway. We'll just mock up a cargo hold in the studio, stick the Tardis in it sideways and have the Doctor travel with it like that.



ES: OK then so how are we going to film Concorde on prehistoric Earth and how are we going to get it to the location?

JNT: Location?

ES: I assume we're going to some chalk quarry for the prehistoric Earth scenes?

JNT: No we'll just stick a few rocks and bushes in a brightly lit studio like we normally do, nobody will be able to tell the difference.




ES: OK and what about Concorde?

JNT: Well for main shots we'll just stick a great big aircraft undercarriage in the middle of the studio & have all the action revolve around that, for the long shots we can buy a model Concorde while we're at Heathrow. I think the budget will stretch to that.



ES: So these aliens, what's the deal with them?

JNT: Plasmatons, they're like humanoid blobs of energy psychokinetic field. They attack people with bubbles



ES: Bubbles?

JNT: Yeah it'll look great, They're not the main villain though.

ES: No? Is it Wendy O Williams?

JNT: You're thinking of The Plasmatics

ES: Oh, sorry

JNT: No, the main villain is Kalid. We'll give him a middle eastern sounding name. Trust me in 20 years time western Europe be petrified of other people with arab sounding names.



ES: Right, OK. Who's this Kalid guy?

JNT: This is the genius bit

ES: It is?

JNT: He's The Master.....



ES: The Master?????

JNT: In disguise

ES: In disguise?

JNT: Yes

ES: Why?

JNT: It'll be a big surprise to the audience

ES: But why is he in disguise when he's on an uninhabited planet with nobody around?

JNT: That doesn't matter, think of the ratings


ES: So I assume The Doctor defeats the Master, how do they get back to the present day.

JNT: Well the Doctor takes them back guiding Concorde with the Tardis

ES: How are we going to do that?

JNT: We'll get some stock footage of it taking off from British Airways, cut off the lower half of the film so you can't see the runway and superimpose our studio set over it instead.

ES: What about the birds flying in the background, they didn't have birds on prehistoric Earth.

JNT: F*ck the birds, not my problem. Anyway think you can find someone to write all that up



ES: Um OK, I'll see who's available

JNT: Great, this is going to be awesome. Anyway I'l leave that with you I have more important things to do like appear at a convention in Los Angeles this weekend & I have a pantomime with Sue Pollard & Bobby Davro to organise in Milton Keynes. Any problems phone my secretary I'm sure she'll be able to get hold of me for you in a couple of weeks, see ya.



ES: Bye then

****ing Fringe people. That show was ass. I could never get into it cause it seemed like a reverse of the X-Files. Instead of going into a case and exploring the scientific explanation first and then getting hit with bizarro world they give you something outlandish, after which they pull the bait-and-switch and you're usually left with some mundane, perfectly reasonable scientific explanation. Besides, Mulder > Olivia all day, baby.

There are numerous ways to interpret what I posted, it isn't a spoiler unless it's put in context.

Fringe gave me my supernatural fix that I was missing out on. I loved the show being a reverse of the X-files. Also, Fringe had a way better over arching plot than the ****ing smoking man bull****.

Yeah, but you didn't have to say it. That's what spoiler tags are for.
And as new viewers get into the series the significance of what you let slip is going to start becoming apparent. So it certainly is a spoiler, whether you like it or not. It will become one.
