Incredible price for what (IMO) is still the best UK drama series made in the last 20 years.

Add both to your basket and then apply code XMAS5

John Simm stars as Sam Tyler, a driven and ambitious young detective, determined to keep the streets of 21st Century Manchester safe. But after a near fatal car accident, he wakes up, dazed and confused, in 1973. Has he gone back in time? Is he in a coma? Or has he simply gone insane? What follows is Sam's 21st century account of 1970s life, where he feels like a fish out of water. He must come to terms with an unfamiliar environment and an archaic CID unit. There, using his modern know-how, he becomes integral to the unit. But he must adapt to their old-fashioned technologies and etiquettes. Sam works on some of the hardest cases he's ever been involved with. It's a world where witnesses are regularly intimidated, it takes two weeks to process forensics, and his colleagues will nail their suspect whether they have the evidence or not... Created and written by Mathew Graham, Tony Jordan and Ashley Pharoah (who all worked on Hustle), directed by Bharat Nalluri (Spooks, Hustle), John McKay (Canterbury Tales), John Alexander (Cutting It) and SJ Clarkson (Footballers' Wives).

How many things are left to post now with xmas5?

The code XMAS5 is not working for me. It registers while the item is in the basket but after trying to complete the order it states that the code is invalid. When is the expiry date on it?

Upscaled



Sort of. Got these myself - it is noticeably better than the dvd upscaled through a proper player.

received code in email this morning so tried there now and says code not accepted in check out after i confirm card details and goes to payment

Preferred the short-lived American version myself, but great price

cheers Andy was after these

thanks for posting Andy

Great series. Hot.

I already have both series but heat for this deal as it's a great show.

Code no longer working for me

perfect series

An excellent series.

This series was not shot in HD.

Watching SD source material on blu ray is a bit pointless. Go buy the cheaper DVD!

If that's true then the production company that did it, should be ashamed of selling it as a Blu-ray.

'Life on Mars' was probably shot on 16mm so it should look good on Blu-ray, with just a little film grain. Also it should have more natural contrast without the digital 'post processing' so over-used right now. I liked both series and it deserves better than that.

Do you mean the more expensive £13-per-season DVDs?

Really want Ashes to Ashes on blu ray. Netflix has HD but it's terrible

Awesome series.

If wikipedia is correct:
"Note: Due to the popularity of the show, Blu-ray editions of both series were released on 27 October 2008. However since the show's various effects were originally edited and mastered in standard definition, a true HD version would require a near-total overhaul. The Blu-ray editions therefore contained studio-upscaled footage of the original SD content, providing some improvement. This pseudo-HD version is not known to have been broadcast on television."

I used to think that up-scaling was a benefit, because that's what the marketing for DVD and/or Blu-ray players told me. I then read up on it as I started to think there was no benefit. The truth is that up-scaling slightly reduces image quality, unless you can see jagged edges (aka pixel aliasing).
