Goofs

In the opening episode, the characters of Diane and Sally are said to be Dr. Peter Brady's widowed sister and her daughter. But later segments refer to them as having the same surname as the brother/uncle, Brady, rather than that of the late husband/father, as if "Dee" is his widowed sister-in-law. See more »

Quotes

[first lines of series]
Dr. Peter Brady: My name is Peter Brady. For some time now, I've been engaged in highly secret experiments designed to bring about a great step forward in man's conquest of space and time. Here in my lab, working night and day, I've been prying into the mysteries of the future. Only a few hours ago I felt that there were secrets that would never be known here on Earth. And then suddenly, in the midst of routine experiments, a strange and unpredicted event took place. Whether a mistake or ...

A very credible series for its time
24 February 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This must have been a wondrous new addition to 1950s Television? Made by the ITC company, who always managed to produce something a little different from the endless cops and robber/western import shows from America. Its very easy to criticise this series in the 21st century, but if you look at it in the context of the time it was made, It was pretty darn clever. The special effects were ambitious for their day and still look effective, as good as or even better than an expensively made series like 'The Outer Limits'(1963) where there was no attempt to hide special effect 'wires' at all . It must have been terribly difficult trying to make a show like this in television time and budget? Certainly this show's effects stand up well against the 1975 'Invisible Man' remake series which used a lot of chroma key overlay for effects and consequently the large amount of blue fuzz, made it unconvincing.
