Tonight marks the series premiere of the new Sci-Fi thriller Time After Time on ABC, based on the book and film of the same name by Karl Alexander.

In the intriguing new series by creator Kevin Williamson (The Vampire Diaries), real-life writer H.G. Wells ends up in the present day chasing down the infamous serial killer Jack The Ripper, but there’s a twist. Thanks to Wells’ handy-dandy time machine, Victorian London doctor John Stevenson (aka Jack The Ripper) is transported to 2017 to elude capture by authorities. Wells follows him in an attempt to capture the killer, who just so happens to have been a close friend of his.

If this seems confusing to you, don’t worry. It was even confusing at times for the lead actor on the show, Freddie Stroma as well. In an interview with ABC News, Stroma jokingly explained, “We had many, many moments where we’re like, ‘Wait a second. I don’t think any of this makes any sense!'” The actor also said that the two main characters’ relationship with each other is most interesting because they are best friends turned enemies due to ending up on opposite sides of the law.
