The odd but good 1970s time travel detective thing returns to the BBC for a second season.

Sam Tyler (John Simm) is back and determined to find out just why he is still in the Seventies - solving crimes with Gene Hunt (Philip Glenister), Annie Cartwright (Liz White), Ray Carling (Dean Andrews) and Chris Skelton (Marshall Lancaster) - how he got there and how he can get back to 2007.

During this second and final series, Sam comes face-to-face with a couple of ghosts from his future past - sleazy casino owner Tony Crane (Marc Warren) and his own mentor, Chief Inspector Glenn Fletcher (Ray Emmett Brown) - although he is just a fresh-faced new recruit in 1973.

Among the storylines, a spate of bombings gives Gene an excuse to harass some of the local Irish community, and the invite-only parties of a middle-class suburban couple lead the boys to indulge in some interesting undercover work.
