- Me, Myself, and I
- Ashes to Ashes is a BBC television drama series which is the sequel to the 2006 series Life on Mars.
As with Life On Mars, Ashes To Ashes's name comes from a David Bowie song of the era in which it is set, in this case the 1980 single "Ashes to Ashes".
It is known that DI Alex Drake, a trained police psychologist, has been studying the suicide of DCI Sam Tyler and is familiar with the detailed description he recorded of his experiences of life in 1973 (while he was actually in a coma in 2006). Viewers saw Sam send this tape to Alex (referred to only as a police psychologist) via a voice recorder in the final episode of Life On Mars.
This was the seed planted for the creation of Ashes to Ashes although Alex was not mentioned by name, nor was she seen.
