Episodes 2&3 have featured very brief flashs of a POV shot of a boy (presumedly Sam Tyler as a child) in a buckled shoe, playing/chasing what looks like a blurry girl in a red hooded coat in a wooded place.

That alone would make them Don't Look Now references just for the film/TV buffs. But DLN was actually released in 1973...the year Life On Mars is set. Is that a coincidence or on purpose? Could Sam have witnessed an event when he was four years old that echos the film, which is why he's taken himself back to that year? Did he see the girl in the red coat drown? Could it be why he the girl from the test card talks to him? Is the girl in the red coat and the girl from the test card one and the same?

Anyone else noticed this?

Edited the sub-title of the thread to make it a generic dumping ground for posts on the show! Raven (24/01/07).

Suprb series but I couldn't stop thinking of Monkfish from The Fast Show while watching it.
