Series cast summary:

 H. G. Wells (unknown episodes)


H.G. Wells foresaw the future in such visionary novels as The Time Machine and The War of the Worlds. On a night in London in 1946, newspaper reporter Ellen McGillivray arrives at the home of legendary literary figure, Herbert George Wells. Expecting to hear of the events and people who formed his prophetic imagination, she is informed of a world in which known scientific boundaries no longer exist. It begins a half-century earlier at London's Imperial College of Science where Wells meets Jane Robbins, a scientist equally fascinated by unnatural phenomenon, and a woman who immediately captures Wells' heart. Through midnight experiments and secret investigations into the paranormal, through the follies of chance and the miracles of fate, Wells and Robbins find themselves slipping into whirlpools of time, both past and present, they never thought possible. Since this mysterious universe can not be shared with the world, this becomes a wondrous secret that binds them forever. To Wells' ... Written by Echo Bridge Home Entertainment

Okay collection of Wells stories
4 December 2001 | by (Adelaide, Australia) – See all my reviews

Collection of six Wells short stories, ranging from time travel to martians to "acceleration", tied together with an ongoing romance between Wells and a female scientist, set toward the end of the 19th Century. It's not a bad production, overall, but most of what is good about the series is owing to Wells' stories themselves; the acting, makeup and effects can be dodgy at times, but that's what you'd expect from a TV miniseries from across the Pacific. Rating: 6/10.
