…that’s my assessment of Ashes to Ashes after last night’s press launch. I’m fearful of embargos and the like though, so will say no more. I’m happy, I hope you’re happy too…

Well 2612 was just a room number and not “too sick, want to” as I thought for about 10 minutes during last night’s final installment of Life On Mars.
