Life After Mars?

The excellent time-traveling cop drama Life on Mars concluded, controversially, last night on BBC 1! In the tradition of the very best genre series, the ending is deliciously problematic and evocative of seminal semiological tour de force The Prisoner!

Given that I have experienced a coma, following a near-fatal head injury at St Michael’s Nursery & Primary School Kingsteignton in October 1977, which left me paraplegic, I can empathise with Sam Tyler's (dryly played by John Simm) 'Alice in Wonderland' adventure! Incidentally, unlike today's alleged "compensation culture", I received no compensation for my head injury!

Can't wait to see John Simm on Doctor Who. Who's betting he'll be playing the Doctor's brother, and arch nemesis, The Master? Russel T Davies make it so!

  2. Hi,
    I see you've got a list of 'Labels' at the bottom of your posts. Do you find this makes a difference re. SEO and the number of visitors ? Thanks, Vic

  3. Hi Vic,

    Thanks for dropping by and leaving a comment.

    I have noticed an increase in traffic from Technorati since adding 'Labels'! This has also had a positive affect on my RSS feed traffic as well!

    Best,

    John
