Kevin McKidd (Trainspotting) stars in this 13 part time travelling tv drama from 2007.
McKidd is Dan Vassar, a journalist who suddenly finds himself transported to different periods of time. His purpose for being there soon reveals itself and he faces a series of problems to solve ranging from preventing a murder to re-uniting estranged family members.
Along with these situations Dan also runs into his dead ex-girlfriend. She too has the ability to time travel and things get complicated when he encounters earlier events from his own life.
This show fell victim to the cut-throat world of US tv ratings but it’s great fun and Scottish actor McKidd even manages a pretty convincing American accent.
Fans of Quantum Leap and Back To The Future will love it.
Journeyman: The Complete Series is available as a 4 disc
DVD box set in the UK now.
