I am looking for the name of a miniseries that I had watched a long time ago. It's plot was about a scientist and his apprentice in a university. The time line suggested it was between 1920s and 1950s maybe taking place in London.

some more info about the episodes:

  1. truth serum stolen and poured in London water system.
  2. a scientist discovers a time slowing compound.
  3. an electrical technician who does time travel by accident.

    When is "a long time ago"? Please be more specific. – Catija Apr 24 '15 at 13:32
