The current work in progress – a quick summary.

For those of you who are interested, the piece I’m currently writing is part of the TV series canon, but is not strictly speaking part of the TV series itself.  I do have a place in the series 1 outline where I could tell this story, splitting into 2 or 3 episodes – or even interspersing a couple of scenes per episode through the first season of the TV series, but I think it needs to be created and scripted as a standalone feature-length movie.

The basic idea of the story (without too many spoilers) is that it outlines the history of the co-founders of Braithwaite Bio-Med (genius nano-technologist Orville Braithwaite, supported by Mike Sherwood on the money side) through the first public release of Asclepius, then diverges into a Faustian bargain in which a young journalist is offered her greatest desire.  When the devil comes a-knocking, Orville helps her turn the situation around and puts her back in control of her own destiny.

Core themes are the use and abuse of nano-technology and new models of capitalism being used with world-changing results.
