RIP Gene Hunt

He has been one of the great TV characters of the age, and last night we learned the truth about Gene Hunt in the final episode of Ashes to Ashes. Whilst the finale of Lost will get all the hype, this was an absolute stunner of a conclusion to five series of time travelling fantasy of the highest order. And in HD, too. Anyone confused by what I thought the most breathtaking twist I've ever seen on TV should check out this interview with series co-creator Matthew Graham on the Guardian website. Me? I'm going to sit down and watch the whole of Life on Mars and Ashes to Ashes all over again.
