I never would of noticed half of these bloopers! What with my eye sight lol!.. considering life on mars as been made in the 21st century! I think they did a brilliant job! And is quite authentic! And To the point of when I always watch it' it transports me back! Maybe not as much as the Sweeney! But never the less it does a good job!
Another blooper of sorts tonight while compiling the locations for Series 2 Episode 6.
Sam is seen driving to "Lancashire General Hospital" to see Layla. In reality this was Birch Hill Hospital in Rochdale. In the 1970s this was a fully operational Hospital, but by the time of filming Life On Mars, some of the Hospital Services had already started moving away to a new location. It shut it's doors for the last time on January 2nd 2013 and is subject of a new housing development for 400 homes.
In Life On Mars we see Sam pull up outside the Hospital in his Marina. To the side of him we see a huge window that has been boarded up. When he gets out of the car and runs into the Hospital, we can clearly see another window boarded up, indicating that parts of the building had already been closed.

It's strange that they never picked a more suitable building to shoot the scene. Perhaps the crew turned up on the day of filming not expecting the windows to be boarded up, and it was to late to pick another location ?
