When physicist Sophie Clarke builds a strange machine from long-lost scientific plans she unwittingly transports Nikola Tesla to modern-day London. Unfortunately Tesla brings another historical figure along with him: an autocratic automaton!
Dr. Sophie Clarke gives us a very brief overview of Nikola Tesla's life, including the development of his particle beam weapon or "peace ray." Sophie also has a few final thoughts about her experiences with Nikola.
It started off rather well until Tesla turned up. I just found him annoying and trying far far too much to be funny, serious, clever or whatever he was trying to be. In the end he was just annoyingly annoying and I had to switch it off. I'll never know what happens next. Hooray
I loved this, great fun. It deserves all the awards it got! Gillian MacGregor is wonderful as Sophie, Paul O'Neill over acts his part as Tesla a little, and I cannot understand why he has a sort of posh British accent, but apart from that, wonderful. If you want to see part 3 and 4 which are just as good, go to their website, address in the credits at the end, join the mailing list and you will be sent a link.
Thought this sounded interesting, but so far it is a couple of short (5 minute) episodes that don't really explain much. Most of it done in the interview mode with intermittent film slots. Somewhat melodramatic music and in a bullet point fashion no real story to it.
This is pathetic rubbish, the lead actress speaks to fast and the dialect is terrible. Story line is far to convoluted to make any sense.Comedy it is not, seems that they are trying to parody Monty Python and fail at every turn. Don't waste your time.
Brilliantly mad. Fabulously geeky (in a Brian Cox kind of way) And I loved the fact that it contained physics, sci fi and a great female lead. I really hope that the director gets to continue his vision. Please pick it up Amazon!
