* ''Series/LifeOnMars2006'': Nelson is an oracle nonpareil who may just be the protagonist's subconscious. He's also a {{Fauxreigner}} in that he plays up a Jamaican accent so people don't take him too seriously ("Folks just seem happier with the other Nelson"). He turns up again in the very last episode of ''AshesToAshes'', which reveals (MAJOR spoilers): [[spoiler: that he's more or less the British coppers' equivalent of ''St Peter.'']]
