This chapter engages with notions of time travel, childhood and the ‘uncanny home’ within the BBC television series Life On Mars (2006-2007) and Ashes To Ashes (2008-2010). In doing so, it offers insights into the interplay between childhood and adulthood, and investigates our memories of our childhood homes as an unsettling site of the uncanny. The chapter also insists that both Life On Mars and Ashes To Ashes – through both series’ utilisation of time travel – are positioned firmly within the genre of British science fiction television.
