TV show description:
While investigating a serial killer in 2006, Detective Chief Inspector Sam Tyler (John Simm) of the Greater Manchester Police is hit by a speeding car.

Sam awakens in the year 1973 as a recently transferred inspector at the same station. Is he crazy, in a coma, or actually a time-traveler?

While searching for a way to return home, Sam tries to come to terms with the old-fashioned technology and attitudes of the 1970s. He works under the command of old-school Detective Chief Inspector Gene Hunt (Philip Glenister) and begins to develop a relationship with Detective Annie Cartwright (Liz White).

Others in the station include jealous and sexist Detective Sergeant Ray Carling (Dean Andrews) and young, naive Detective Chris Skelton (Marshall Lancaster).

Canceled and renewed TV show
