I really enjoyed Ashes to Ashes, the follow up to Life on Mars. the only bad thing was that I had to watch Ashes to Ashes to fully understand the ending of life on Mars as it never quite made sense.
There were, I thought, one thing that was not quite right in terms of chronology. Firstly, the can of Tab fizzy drink they had was not a memory I had of the 1980's. According to Wikipedia, tab clear was not sold here until 1993 whilst tab appears not to have been sold here in the 1980's, although I am ready to be proved wrong.
For me the drink that reminds me of the 1980's is Lilt. I used love it in the 1980's, but can't remember drinking it since then.
