Added DiffLines:

* InternalAffairs: Frank Morgan appears to fill in for Gene as DCI while Hunt is under suspicion in the death of Terry Haslam, but he's actually leading a Greater Manchester police investigation intended to bring down Hunt and his whole squad. [[spoiler: According to Morgan, Sam is actually Sam Williams, a deep cover agent working for Morgan who forgot his real identity after the accident.]]

* ShoutOut: Sam cites [[Franchise/{{Robocop}} Robocop's]] three prime directives as his view of the Police's duties. Gene seems to prefer [[Franchise/JudgeDredd Judge Dredd's]] catchphrase: "I AM The Law"

Followed by ''AshesToAshes'', which shared some of the cast. Although the first two series of that show were largely a standalone story, the third featured numerous connections to ''Life on Mars'', and finally explained the truth about what was happening all along. '''This means that even if you've watched the ''Life on Mars'' finale, this page still contains spoilers.'''

* RunningGag: "That's not how it goes!" (Sam constantly getting the YouDoNotHaveToSayAnything speech wrong); "You are surrounded by armed bastards!" (even carried over to ''AshesToAshes''); Gene's flasks and fondness for American [[TheWestern westerns]].

Added DiffLines:

* AndTheAdventureContinues: [[spoiler: The finale we actually got instead of the aforementioned DarkerAndEdgier one. Sam jumps, ends up back in the 70s and runs into Annie. They talk and have the BigDamnKiss...at which point Gene roars up in the car and tells Sam to put her down, 'cause they've got a case. And so they all hop in and ride off to kick more criminal arse.]]

The most rational explanation is that he's in some kind of coma, as messages from 2006 keep entering his head. But Sam's 1973 is so perfectly detailed, right down to details 20far too minute for him to imagine, that he has no idea what is going on.
