I'm left scratching my head at the negative reviews this series has attracted. Maybe its mostly H.G. Wells purists, who don't like adaptations of his work?
Indeed, to be fair, there have been some horrible adaptations, of Wells stories. Thankfully, this is not one of them. Certainly, it by no means adhere's to the facts of Well's life or strictly speaking his stories as written but so what?
The fact is this is a well made series that's a mix of thriller and sci fi action. Viewed from this perspective its extremely enjoyable. The characterizations have depth, the sci fi elements meld into a Wells- ian centric universe and the action is well paced and enjoyable. I especially like how the series writers have creatively blended elements of H.G. Wells life and literature and the Jack The Ripper murder mystery.
Sure its a far fetched yarn but its still engaging stuff.I really like this series and plan to keep watching. Seven out of ten from me.
