From The TV IV
- "My name is Alex Drake. I've just been shot and that bullet has taken me back to 1981. I may be one second away from life, or one second away from death. All I know is that I have to keep fighting: fight to live, fight to see my daughther, fight to get home."
Ashes to Ashes is a followup to Life on Mars based on the same premise. It is 1981 and DCI Gene Hunt and his faithful sidekicks have moved on to the London Metropolitan Police where they team up with DI Alex Drake. A single mother, Drake is a psychological profiler in the ranks of the Met in modern 2008, but after having been shot she suddenly finds herself thrown back in time, just like Sam Tyler whose detailed reports she has read.
