OUT OF TIME

THE TV RE­MAKE THAT WENT NOWHERE

SFX - - Time machine time after time -

In spring 2017, ABC aired a TV re­make of Time Af­ter Time, tak­ing Wells and the Rip­per to con­tem­po­rary New York and adding an arc plot, a con­spir­acy some­how in­volv­ing the Rip­per called “Project Utopia”. Wells was played by Fred­die Stroma (Cor­mac in the later Harry Pot­ter films) and the Rip­per by Josh Bow­man. The 12-part se­ries was canned in Amer­ica af­ter five episodes, though the re­main­ing episodes re­port­edly aired in Spain and Por­tu­gal. Ar­guably, there’d al­ready been an homage to Time Af­ter Time in the 1990s se­ries The New Ad­ven­tures Of Su­per­man, where Lois and Clark are some­times helped by a gen­tle­manly time­trav­el­ling HG Wells.
