Time After Time (ABC) – Premieres 5th March – Cancelled
Sci-fi silliness based on the book and film of the same name, where after Scotland Yard work out that Jack The Ripper is in fact Dr John Stevenson, friend of H.G. Wells, they go to apprehend him while he is at Wells’ house.
Unfortunately for the 18th century police, H.G. has built a working time machine which Stevenson uses to evade capture to travel to 2017 New York. Noting that the machine works, Wells heads off in pursuit where with the help of museum curator Jane Walker and his great great granddaughter they try to catch the Ripper so Wells can bring him back to his own time.
All-in-all it’s a fluffy lightweight bit of sci-fi, and not really something you’d go out of your way to keep watching.
