    It would appear that Gene Hunt makes his return next Thursday night. Do you think it will be any good?

    Hope it doesn't clash with Trial and Retribution on ITV.

    I will be watching the first episode, although I think they were running out of ideas a bit on the second series of Life on Mars. It looks to star Zoe from Spooks (forgotten actresses name). I suspect it might be a bit average but hopefully it will confound my expectations.

    I await with anticipation. And a tinge of sadness - Tom and I used to watch Life on Mars, mainly so that we could get over excited about the various 70's cars. It was one show we'd always try to be in to see. Not sure it'll be the same without him. But I think the line "Fire up the Quattro!" seen in the trailers is going to become a classic. And there'll be a whole new set of cars to go "oh, we had one of them!" Prize for spotting the first Mini Metro?

    Keily something? I read about it in the Indy last week, apparently, they had her in mind before they'd written the series....

    Oh is that his name. Didn't know. Might be good, I'll watch the first and perhaps second

    Ah, but do you also remember the four citrus fruit fizzy drink of the time - Quatro? I was quite addicted to it for one summer I seem to remember.

    I'm sure that's a more up to date logo than I remember. I recall the can having a quartered design, four blocks of colour, but I don't remember the lettering - I'm sure it was more blocky and 80's than that...

    I'll be watching it. I just hope they don't milk any fun out of it like they did with Auf wiedersehen Pet.

    It was great while they were filming the '70s one in Manchester - walking past the BBC carpark every day was a real treat. Managed to snap a couple of the cars too;

    pics.

    Oh, wow, yes, that's it. Only it was in cans when I was drinking it.

    I almost want a can now. But really, I'd rather have a cup of tea...
