"Fire up the Merc; the Quattros dead!" Who was Gene Hunt?

#1
So, the last episode - the end of 'Ashes to ashes' - the Quattro is riddled with bullets and Gene Hunt is looking at a Mercedes-Benz brochure and the team have made it to the pub...

So, who was Gene Hunt?


Answers on a post-card, please! :policecap:

Easy:
A character in the BBC TV series' 'Life on Mars' and 'Ashes to Ashes' played by the actor Philip Glenister

Ohhhhhhhh, I see you want to know who he was meant to be, woops :x ...I'd say he's a sort of St. Peter (or an archangel of somesort) figure trying to help the souls of troubled policemen (and women) reach heaven whilst DCI Jim Keats is Satan and trying to take their souls down his lift to hell! :police:

The poor quattro :( !!!

did anyone notice how the door of the Quattro on Gene's side was riddled with bullets... when it was the side **away** from the Dutch smugglers when they opened fire?

There is always a spotter, to fuck up, a non sencicle plot.

well, seeing as they were at least a dozen, surrounded by shiny metal where they'd stripped the paint, and the shot lingered on the Gene Genie, I couldnt help but notice.

So Gene Hunt was in Copper Vallhalla! Quite a nice ending I thought. Helping dead coppers through purgatory.
Raymondo topped himself for being a walt and a disapointment to his Soldier Dad priceless!

Gene, was St Peter who through his methods enabled members of the police profession in Limbo to make there way to heaven. The other guy was Beelzebub trying to collect souls,

So St Peter drives a red Quattro? That begs the question what the F*** does God drive?

Personally, I think it's a Mercedes 230TE estate...

Au contraire-if he's drunk and driving who's gonna stop him?

Does that make the Landlord of the pub (I forget his name) God??

God doesn't drive, he's already everywhere. But if he did, it wouldn't be a car - it'd be a chariot pulled by bulls.

Jesus, on the other hand, would drive a Prius or possibly a segue. Always was a disappointment that lad.

God drives the harlots and false prophets out of his temples. You, my friend are going to hell. Jesus is going to butt fcuk you(With no reach around)
Oh how I laugh in the face of your discomfort.

No, not God. I think that Gene Hunt isn't St Peter, Nelson, the dreadlocked chap at the end, who is the pub landlord in life on mars is more likely to be St Peter. The Wiki listing for him is here:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Life_on_Mars_characters#Nelson

Yes I know it's Wiki and potentially as reliable as the Hitler diaries, but it's all we have to go on at the moment.

Gene equates to Jesus I think, shepherding his flock through limbo. I've done some searches on the name 'Jim Keats' and there doesn't appear to be any obvious religous links, but in the last episode it's fairly clear that he is Satan trying to tempt Alex, Ray, Shaz & Chris and cast doubt on their belief in Gene/Jesus.

Whichever way you put it, pub = heaven.

There is also a complete list of ashes to ashes characters on wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Ashes_to_Ashes_characters#Main_characters
