    Apparently, he's from something called Life on Mars. I'd never heard of him, either.

  • That's a deeper question than you know (unless you do know, and you're just pulling our legs).

    The short answer is that Gene Hunt was a major character in two BBC period piece cop shows: the unbelievably terrific Life on Mars (set in 1970's Manchester) and the not-quite-so-unbelievably-terrific-but-still-pretty-darn-good Ashes to Ashes (set in 1980's London).  DCI Hunt was an unrepentent harda$$ cop.  A "civil rights are for innocent people", knock heads 'til you get a confession type.  A caveman with a badge.

    Even Daniel Craig's Bond would think Gene tended to go a little over the line.
