As DCI Gene Hunt, Philip Glenister has travelled back in time to 1974 and 1981 - and become a national treasure in the process. Now, in his hilarious and fascinating book, Things Ain't What They Used to Be, he takes the reader on a hilarious, personal journey through the 70s and 80s and compares them with how we live today. Was it really all so much better then? Or should we throw away our rose-tinted spectacles? Along the way Philip ponders many vital questions, such as: which decade had the best cars? Which had the worst haircuts? And exactly how heavy were the original 'mobile' phones? Already one of our best-loved stars, in THINGS AIN'T WHAT THEY USED TO BE Philip Glenister also reveals himself to be a witty, warm and perceptive observer of life. If you're going on a nostalgia trip, you couldn't ask for better company.
Philip Glenister was born in Harrow, north west London in 1963. He has appeared in many hugely successful TV series including LIFE ON MARS; ASHES TO ASHES; CLOCKING OFF; and CRANFORD. Visit www.philip-glenister.com for further details.
