Created and entirely written by Anthony Horowitz, Crime Traveller ran for one season of eight episodes in 1997. The show focuses on Jeff Slade (Michael French) is a detective with the CID department which is led by Kate Grisham (Sue Johnston).
Slade is a good detective but oftens goes outside the box which annoys Grisham. Slade often works with science officer Holly Turner (Chloë Annett) who has a secret that Slade manages to uncover – she owns a working time machine that was built by her late father.
They use the machine to travel back in time to witness a crime as it happens and discover who committed it. As a result, Slade’s track record with crime solving goes through the roof with case after case being solved in record time! What could go wrong?
