"In this sequel to Life on Mars, DCI Alex Drake suffers Sam Tyler's fate when she is shot in the head. Except she is returned to the 80s, not the 70s, and she has a daughter to get back to. Luckily (?!) she is also paired with the fabulous Gene Hunt. Another exception is that this show had twice as many series as LoM. Alex also encounters her parents and gets involved in the mystery of their deaths. "
