DCI Gene Hunt is back, but he's no longer the self-styled "Sheriff of Manchester." Flanked by his faithful sidekicks, Ray Carling and Chris Skelton, and drawn by the action and intrigue of the London Met, Gene's turned his attentions to taking on the "southern nancy" criminal scum. However, Gene did not expect to be thrown together with a sexy, intelligent DI Alex Drake. Single mother to daughter Molly, Alex has rapidly risen through the ranks of the Met and, in the modern world of 2008, skillfully uses psychological profiling to capture suspects. When Alex and her daughter are kidnapped, she makes a daring attempt at escape, resulting in a horrific incident. Alex suddenly finds herself in 1981, interacting with familiar characters, not just from her own lifetime, but also from the detailed reports logged by none other than Sam Tyler, which Alex previously spent months poring over. Alex is ripped from her current world of sexual equality and respect in 2008, and finds herself opposite...Written by
The historically inaccurate factual errors, such as the cars etc, could be explained away by some things that Alex Drake repeatedly refers to with the spoken dialogue, within the story universe. In season 1, Alex refers to everyone in "1981" as Constructs, as she assumes its her in a coma, based on her analysis of what Sam Tyler reported, so logically, everything else in the series is her "mis-rememberings" of that year.

There are many cars out of place during the course of the series, including a 90's era Peugeot 205, and late model Mercedes. Many of the stock cars are repeated throughout the show including a red Vauxhall Cavalier. See more »
Ashes to Ashes has proved that it is an original and well written TV series. All of the characters in the show are fantastic and you instantly fall in love with them. Gene Hunt is a god as far as I am concerned! Although he may be slightly caustic, his character develops before your very eyes. The relationship between him and Alex has been very intense from day 1, his team are all so different and diverse yet normal if that makes sense?! The final series has been a real eye opener. You find out the truth about Gene's world, who he really is and why Alex was there. I wont give the ending away in case some people haven't seen it yet but I thought it was incredible. No-one I know could guess the ending. Ashes to ashes is a classic and will be for many years to come!
