    That's not the same guy who played him last time round is it? Looks younger. Perhaps they go back in time to see him at a younger age?

    I was thinking about this and she met her Father in an episode called Fathers Day where they went back in time to try and prevent his death, and no it wasn't John Simm that played him, he wasn't even called Samuel, he's was called Peter Alan Tyler in that episode, so i dunno how they are going to work that one, i'm bloody well looking forward to it though

    I wouldn't have thought a plot hole that big through...

    Should be interesting how they make it work.

    When's the new Dr Who starting BTW? This Saturday?

    Yup and Life On Mars isn't due to be aired until 2007

    I E-mailed the BBC before and enquired about the Sam Tyler/Samuel Tyler connection, this is their reply

    I note your appreciation of both 'Life on Mars' and 'Doctor Who' and your
    interest in the characters played by John Simm.

    However, full details of the news 'Doctor Who' series have yet to be revealed to
    us here at BBC Information and we are unable to comment on a possible link
    between the two characters.

    As a fan of the dramas, you may be aware of the character profiles, episode
    guides and more that can be found on their official BBC websites at:

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/drama/lifeonmars/

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/doctorwho/

    I hope that you continue to enjoy BBC programming and may I thank you again for
    taking the time to contact us.

    Regards
