I know

deep down

if I don't do this,

I'll never be able

to truly live my life,

and always feel like

I'm not really here,

like it's a...

a dream.

How deep

do you think it is?

One elephant.

Two elephant,

three elephant,

four elephant,

five elephant.

Was that a splash?

I think so.

It must be well over

100 feet deep.

Maybe even a mile.

Silly goosey.

Silly gander.

Do you think

it leads to China?

More likely Australia.

Or perhaps

to another world.

One where dinosaurs

rule the earth.

What are you

two doing?

We weren't

doing anything.

You're not supposed

to play by the well.

We were

just exploring.

Bet you're too scared

to climb down.

Bet you are, too. I'm not.

But your mother wants you.

It's lunch time.

Race you.

He makes me rather


I know, dear, but I met

him such a long time.

It seems rude

not to invite him.

He was in your husband's

regiment, wasn't he?


he worked for some

cloak and dagger outfit

as an interrogator.

All very hush-hush.

He used to complain

about the bishop.

He doesn't strike me

as the religious type.

As in the chess piece,

you play the very subtle...


May I say, you ladies

are looking radiant.

Thank you, Robert.

Please help yourself

to some more food.

Oh, I've had sufficient,

thank you.

Ah, well, then perhaps

you'd be

so kind as to fetch us

a drop more champagne.

Jolly well played.


I believe.


look who's here?

Stephen and Conrad,

always as competitors.

Sometimes they see more like

the brothers than cousins.

You had a head start.

Stephen, take Conrad inside

and wash up for lunch.

And, you young lady,

you better scrub those nails.

Yes, mother.

Thanks, Victoria.

Hey, who's that man?

I bet

he's a mad inventor.

Or a brilliant professor.

I'm sorry

to disturb you.

But I was out

for my walk

and I seemed to have

got a little over heated.

I don't suppose

I could trouble you

for a glass of water.

Of course.

Come and sit for a while.

Stephen, will you fetch

a plate of food

and a glass of water for...

The professor?

Yes, yes.

You can call me


This is really

very kind of you.

Not at all.

Would you prefer

lemonade, Professor?

You know,

there's nothing in the world

I would like

more than for you

to pour me

a glass of that

delicious looking lemonade.

Thank you.

May I get you

anything else, Professor?

Oh, no.

Thank you.

You've done more than

enough for me already.

Mother, the professor

has been telling us

about time travel.

He says

it's quite possible.

Well, theoretically,

of course.

My father used to say

that the difference

between theory and fact

is that the former

could make you money,

whilst the later

actually does.


But what use is money

without love?

I shall give you

a demonstration.

My dear, can you

fetch me some card,

scissors and string?

Now imagine

the slits in this card

are incredibly thin.

So thin, in fact,

they had no height.

Now lead

your partners forward

in one direction

only, please.

Now if you'll keep

your heads even.

Don't look up or down.

You will see the world

as a creature

that lives in one dimension.

Now what do you see,


Just a little bit of

blurry green and some brown.

You see, creatures

that live in this world

have no concept of left

or right or up or down.

They can only

go forward and backward.

But now, my little

one-dimensional creatures,

imagine suddenly learning

of a second dimension

of left and right.

Now what do you

see now, Victoria?

Greens and yellows

and blues and browns
