Detective Jeff Slade and his beautiful colleague Holly are armed with something very special in the ongoing fight against crime their very own time machine. Invented by Holly's father, Professor Frederick Turner, the time machine may be a bizarre mixture of D.I.Y. technology, but it works, just, sending the charming, maverick detective Slade on a dangerous roller-coaster ride through both the present and the past. Intriguing complex puzzles are solved with the aid of their unreliable collection of nuts and bolts and flashing lights, but they must always obey the rules of quantum physics, or risk being lost forever.

2 May 2000 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

I'm afraid I have to disagree with people who say this show is hopeless, it is magical, the effort and time it must have taken to build the Time Machine, and the acting is superb, it makes you want to believe that someone somewhere actually has a time machine hidden away.

Never mind the transparent plot, watch episode one and you'll be hooked until the eighth and last one.

It's addictive. And I haven't got the faintest idea why.
