Sky TV is apparently in the very early stages of developing a new television series based on H.G. Wells The Time Machine. The classic novella has previously been adapted for the big screen twice, now it will try its hand at the small screen.
The story follows an English scientist in Victorian England who constructs a machine that can move both forwards and backward in time. When the curious scientist travels far into the future he witnesses the devolution of mankind. Half the populace are known as the weaker and oblivious Eloi and the cannibalistic underdwellers known as the Morlocks.
