Life on Mars’ Matthew Graham: There’s ‘another journey for Sam Tyler to go on’


This May, it will have been ten years since the story that began with BBC sci-fi police procedural Life on Mars in 2006 ended with sequel Ashes to Ashes, which said goodbye to Gene Hunt, Alex Drake, and the whole team.

Den Of Geek caught up with Graham to look back at both shows a decade after the Ashes to Ashes finale. Below, he tells us about Life on Mars ending much sooner than originally planned, why Gene Hunt is a joke that isn’t funny anymore, and his hopes to revive John Simm’s character Sam Tyler for another fantastical, comic and dark journey that has something serious to say about our times.
