Abstract

While Starz show Outlander is entertaining audiences with the prospect of travelling to the eighteenth century, another production with quite the opposite premise is struggling for its life. ABC’s procedural crime drama Forever may not feature time travel as such, but its story of an immortal man, born in eighteenth-century Britain and now working as a medical examiner in modern-day New York, works similarly to a time-travel narrative, inviting reflections on the nature of historical progress and the value of the past.
