John Simm is back as DI Sam Tyler, the time travelling detective who, after a car accident, has found himself in 1973, in the second and final series of the Award winning Life on Mars, which comes to DVD on 9th April 2007 from Contender Home Entertainment. Returning alongside Simm are Philip Glenister, Liz White, Dean Andrews and Marshall Lancaster as Tyler's Seventies colleagues, who are only just getting to grips with the DI's new-fangled ways of investigating crime.
