OWEN MALLOY, caretaker at the local school, is approached by a shadowy figure named MELVIN (Patrick Barlow) while locking up one day. MELVIN appoints him ‘Caretaker of the World, Brighton and Hove Division.’ But is this MELVIN really a civil servant from the future or just a mad tramp?
After some haggling over a scooter, JAMIE agrees to be OWEN’S sidekick and so their mission begins: This involves the confiscation of some homebrewed beer which, according to MELVIN, will become contaminated in 2013. Curiously MELVIN needs it brought to him in order to ‘process’ it.
A British spin on the U.S time travelling saga, Quantum Leap.
