Still confused by what happened at the end of the British Life On Mars? The series finale of spin-off Ashes To Ashes will explain all, according to its creator... As well as make the series seem like one show.

Mars and Ashes co-creator Matthew Graham told Digital Spy that the end of Ashes would finally reveal everything about both show's time-tossed craziness:

The idea is to unify the two shows. Series three unifies Life On Mars and Ashes To Ashes and makes them one show. By the time you get halfway through series three of Ashes To Ashes, you will actually feel like you're watching series five of Life On Mars! ...In a way what we're saying is that we're going to finally explain the mythology we've created... There's no way we could do another series after this. There would be no mystery left.

As someone who liked the ambiguity of Mars' end, I'm not sure how I feel about everything being explained, but it'll still be interesting seeing what they come up with to do so.
