Spotlight: John Simm

Name: John Simm

First Impression: As Sam Tyler on the only Life on Mars worth watching.

Lasting Impression: The Master. He has just the right amount of maniacal glee... of course they still could have edited him a bit.

What else you've seen them in: Simm has been busy acting... from the original State of Play miniseries to Cracker, to Canterbury Tales to The Devil's Whore, there's no knowing where or when Simm might show up on tv... but Christmas day I have a feeling he'll be bleached and on BBC 1!

Can't believe it's them: Remember the season 2 premiere of Spaced where Daisy returned from India. Remember the mystery man at the airport which landed Daisy in trouble? Yes, that was Simm in a totally memorable role, though he never said a word.

Wish they hadn't: Nothing so far that I detest... though if he doesn't make an apperance on the final season of Ashes to Ashes we might have words.

Bio: Manchester United supporter... I knew you had to have that fact.
