Life on Mars, Series 1

Heard of getting knocked into next week? Modern-day cop Sam Tyler (John Simm) is hit by a car and wakes up in 1973. This British sci-fi mystery (inspiration for a canceled U.S. remake) charms with its culture-clash story of social mores and forensics in the pre-CSI era.

Correction appended July 27: The original photo for this article showed an image from the American version of Life on Mars. It has been corrected to show the British version.
