The stories are wonderful. You have to watch carefully to find the references to Wells's stories. The acting was also excellent, and I enjoyed the DVD so much that I have to keep it to watch it again and again. I even ordered copies of it from for Christmas gifts!

"Like "Time After Time," this three-part British TV miniseries features a fictional H. G. Wells embroiled in several fascinating SF adventures. Each segment runs 90 minutes and contains two stories; the entire show runs 4 hrs. 30 mins.

This is one of the best films I've seen this year. Each story (loosely based on Wells's fiction) is well told and the lead characters are utterly charming. If you're in the mood for some quality science fiction this is the best bargain you'll find.

Great acting, dialogue, story, sets, costumes --- thoroughly enjoyable!

"As a struggling young writer, H.G.Wells is introduced to some great scientists who become fantastic friends, while strange things begin to happen to him as some of his own short stories are woven into the fabric of this series.

I can't say enough good things about this series. Because it's made like a period piece, when the science fiction stories start happening it's all the more amazing! Each story is such an unusual twist, i challenge you to guess what's really going on.

Tom Ward (Dr Harry in the tv series Silent Witness) holds the series together with his self-assured and sensistive portrayal of H.G.Wells, but the real treat of this series is the developing friendship and love he finds with the scientists and his future wife within the stories.

By the end of this, the whole cast feels like a very close family and you wouldn't want to lose a single one of them, which makes the final scenes all the more poignant as Wells grows old.

This dvd is impossible to get in Australia, has never been seen on tv here, that i know of, you can only rent it in selected stores. God knows why it's treated like such a b-grade series, it's really outstanding, i saw it over a year ago and it sticks in my mind to this day."
Infinite Worlds of H.G. Wells

"This movie originally previewed on the HallMark channel ( @2001).
I eagerly sought after a copy of it then and was shocked to find out that they weren't releasing it. Well I gave up hope trying to get it for several years until recently seeing it available at Amazon. Wow, what a find. My wife and I love this film!
The adventures have a strong 19th century flavor to them and the budding relationship between H.G. Wells and his "lady" friend add a nice point of interest to each story. We've all read H.G. Wells fiction novels, but most of us have no clue of the life and times in which He wrote these stories. This movie offers a romantic view to that past."
