Let’s get Gene Hunt in print!

Life On Mars and Ashes To Ashes fans! We need your help, right here…

Have you ever wondered just what happened in the time gap between the television series Life On Mars and Ashes To Ashes? Have you ever wondered what happened to the characters, and even where the origins of Keats can be found? Heck, what’s the story surrounding the big move south between the two shows?

You might just have a chance to find out the answers to these questions.

The fine folks over at Monastic Productions, Matthew Graham and Ashley Pharoah, have plans for a series of novels to bridge the gap between Life On Mars and Ashes To Ashes, to cover the stories of all of the main and supporting characters, and even to print the books in faded, 70s style colours. “And the violent/sexy bits will be pre-dog-eared for easy access!”, they promise.

There’s also talk of e-books, with a live action intro from Gene Hunt, and the potential to get Philip Glenister in for the audio books, too. That would be fun.

The problem is that, while the potential publishers love the first book, they need convincing that there’s a market for a series of novels based between the two series. That’s where you come in.

All we need you to do is register an interest. To offer some proof of the viability of the project.

So, we’d just ask that you sign your name at the following iPetitions link (don’t worry if it asks you to donate, you don’t need to in order to leave your name). We’d be grateful, too, if you could pass this around, and let’s see if we can get enough names together to make this happen.

Thanks for your help and support.
