Storyline

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

What A Delightful Program & I Didn't Know What To Expect
28 October 2001 | by See all my reviews

This was truly an engaging series, a sensational treasure to view. I thought about Steven Spielberg's Young Sherlock Holmes from years ago, which didn't work for me. Infinite Worlds did work wonders on me and I was more of a Jeremy Brett/Sherlock Holmes fan than I ever was an H. G. Wells fan.

Infinite Worlds never gets too technical to leave someone out who may not grasp much about science and math, like me, nor does it get too ficticious, reminding one of Doctor Who. It was never campy either and never quoted Shakespeare. The acting never required going over the top, but it was right on level, no chewing up the scenery among these professionals. The feel, the imagery were all splendid.

Of the six stories, the first two bordered on the most tragic, especially the first one, which set the stage for the entire program. The third one was reminiscent of War of the Worlds. Try not to think of Aliens too much, but the ending with Mrs. Cave and Davey the dog was very surprising. The fourth story was truly an original one done in an original manner, the last two were very romantic, I think the final one was truly the funniest and had me wishing there was more to see when it ended.

An exceptional contribution that set the mood was undeniably Stanislas Syrewicz musical score, as it played each time to signify not that a movie was simply ending, but we were seeing closure in another H. G. Wells chapter.

I recorded this program off, not sure if it was going to be a documentary or docudrama, so I didn't know what exactly to expect. I was not disappointed at all.

Minus commercials, it runs about four and a half hours. How I would love to see more of this in some way shape or form. I would always say "there are worse things on you could watch" but in this instance I will say "there aren't many better things you can find to watch."
