The Infinite Worlds of H.G. Wells is a thrilling science fiction anthology series that was produced by Sonar Entertainment in 2001. The show takes inspiration from the works of the famous British author H.G. Wells, who is often referred to as the “father of science fiction.”

Each episode of the series features a stand-alone story, loosely based on one of Wells’ literary works. While the stories are set in different time periods and locations, they all explore timeless questions about humanity, morality, and the nature of existence. From the depths of the ocean to the outer reaches of space, this series takes viewers on a journey through the unknown and challenges them to consider the possibilities of the future.

The show’s first episode, “The New Accelerator,” tells the story of a young couple who take a mysterious drug that increases their intelligence, but also speeds up time. As they struggle to keep up with their rapidly changing environment, they begin to question the consequences of their actions and the value of knowledge. This episode serves as a prime example of the series’ use of paradoxical concepts to challenge viewers’ understanding of reality.

In “The Stolen Bacillus,” a government scientist creates a deadly virus and accidentally releases it into the public sphere. As the virus spreads, the scientist must hide from the authorities in order to protect his creation. This episode touches on themes of responsibility, scientific ethics, and the dangers of unchecked power – all issues that are still relevant in modern society.

Other memorable episodes include “The Truth About Pyecraft,” in which a man eats a magical weight loss pill and finds himself drifting into the sky, and “The Door in the Wall,” which explores the concept of alternate realities.

The cast of The Infinite Worlds of H.G. Wells is led by Tom Ward, who portrays Wells himself as he introduces each story and provides commentary on its themes. Ward’s performance is engaging and charismatic, and he does justice to Wells’ legacy as a visionary writer and philosopher.

The series’ visual effects are another major highlight, showcasing impressive practical and computer-generated effects that bring the show’s diverse settings to life. The production team was especially adept at creating convincing period settings, with accurate costumes, props, and background details that transport viewers to different eras.

The Infinite Worlds of H.G. Wells is an entertaining and thought-provoking series that fans of science fiction and fantasy will undoubtedly enjoy.
