Sage and Savant gallivanted through Season One with travels that ranged from the near future (NYC 1899 – episode 4) to the distant past (Pompeii 79 – episode 10). They even went into the distant future in episode 11, but it was never determined exactly how far forward they went. So, how far can they go?
There are so many places and times in history the creative team would like to explore—The Inquisition started by Pope Gregory IX ecclesiastical tribunal (1232 AD), Building of the Colosseum in Rome (70 AD), the Vandals sacked Rome (455 AD), The unification of China by Qin (221 BC), Hannibal crossing the Alps with elephants (247 BC), the building of the Library of Alexandria (288 BC), The Battle for Troy (~1190 BC), Ramesses II and the world’s first peace treaty with the Hittites (1258 BC), Göbekli Tepe, the world’s first temple (~10,000 BC). There is a new discovery of human remains dating back 300,000 years. Do we dare try to travel to the dawn of humanity?
Our story is not limited to events in the past either. There are over a hundred years of history that we could explore that are still in our doctor’s future, and more that we can do in the speculative realms of our shared future. We did some of that with episodes 3 and 4, but there is so much more to investigate. In Episode 11 Dr. Sage and Professor Savant travel to the distant future only to find themselves ‘guests’ of the Charge du Faire. What is the agenda of this mysterious organization? There is no limit to the potential futures we can explore.
Is there a limit? Should there be a limit?
When planning the next season, we are contemplating the ramifications of time travel and whether or not to put a practical limit on the distance our heroes can travel. We do this by asking ourselves endless ‘what if?’ questions. What if too much traveling causes memory loss? What if they land into famous bodies? What if they discover how to inhabit still living bodies? What if they can only travel based on the pitches that the human ear can hear?
So many fun questions! What questions do you think we should be asking? What places and times would you like to hear us discover?
Now we begin the search for answers, and as always we follow our motto:
DEATH IS NO BARRIER TO SCIENCE!
