Trivia

As Watson is getting Helen released from jail, he speaks with a man named Lestrade. Lestrade was the nearly incompetent police detective in several Sherlock Holmes stories. See more »

Goofs

While Helen is chasing Adam in the past, she is shooting at him with her semi-automatic pistol. During the chase, she has obviously shot all her ammo because the slide on her gun has locked back. But right after that she is shown firing at him again with the same gun. Now she could have reloaded her gun between the two scenes, but when we later see a pile of her possessions there are no spare clips for her gun. See more »

"Tempus" was a weak opener.
8 October 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode was the one of the weakest starts to a series I have seen in a long time. The dialogue is dry and predictable, save for one or two lines such as "H.G would be thrilled." There was also a gaping plot hole. Jack the Ripper is apparently no longer John Druitt. I remember specifically being told that John Druitt was Jack the Ripper in one of the first episodes. The awkward romance between Magnus and Watson is just that...awkward. It does not fit with anything we have been told before, and seems to be there just to accomplish the effect of using every cliché idea in the world. However, I do like the concept of a 113 year vacation. I think it opens up many possible opportunities for this series to succeed. Many of these opportunities (such as the concept of time-travel) have been used in the least interesting way. I only hope that they can save themselves. I feel bad even giving it two, but I can't rate it any lower. Many points in the plot that were meant to be dramatic were only brought to fruition by the musical score(which was very good), one of which being where Magnus hides from herself. Hiding while dramatic music plays has to be the most overused, cliché idea in the world. All in all, I think it is possible that Sanctuary could be saved, and it does bring me some form of entertainment on Fridays, whether it be writing a bad review of it, or actually enjoying it.
