Storyline

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.

Trivia

Was produced alongside season one of Jonathan Creek; the BBC decided to run with Creek as they felt it's main premise had more scope than Crime Traveller's. The feeling was that due to the limited abilities of the time machine within the narrative, every story possibility had been covered during the eight episodes of the series. Not all fans agreed with this however, some believed that extending the length of time the protagonists could travel back, (or even forward as a new take on the series), could have made for a respectable season two.

on DVD in Oz?
17 June 2004 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I found this terrific little show about 4 years ago on cable TV and have never forgotten it. I would race home from work every afternoon just to catch it, and was really disappointed to find that so few episodes had been made. Yes it was far-fetched, but what SciFi isn't? Yes it was lightweight, but what's wrong with that? Not every show needs to be Law and Order Yes it required some concentration, but only a little. I don't care if the effects were good or bad, I enjoyed this show because the acting was good, I liked the relationship between the leads, and I've never been able to resist the dejavu of characters witnessing their own previous actions.
