The beginning of this script is very descriptive, this is because the story is set in an alternative London of 1888 a date notorious in Victorian England as a series of gruesome murders plague the East End. The Ripper is abroad!
The story follows Slayter Helgass, the last royal heir hailing from the Old Eastern Block of Europe. The family dynasty lost 'The Grace' now control the countries under is fanatical rule, their power enforced by the notorious Kommandos.
Slayter is the key to unlocking a secret so fantastic that The Grace have sent their assassins, part man part machine. These creatures never tire, never stop and never show any compassion to those they are sent to despatch. Killing is their sole objective, a passion that burns deep in their mechanical hearts.
But Slayter has help in the form of Mrs. Gaffby leader of the free Faeries. She and her kind must balance the evil of The Kommandos as they search to uncover the riddle of the missing Giants.
As the story line reaches it's climax, Slayter discovers that the last machine his weapon maker 'Perkins of Whitechapel' has made is that of a Time Machine. With little time to loose, as the Kommando closes in Slayter and Detective Palmer of The Yard jump aboard Perkins invention and jump into a 'new-time'.
But as the machine winks out on its journey the Kommando manages to jump aboard. All three are destined to continue their struggle in the London of a different time!
But is it the future or the past?
And will they now uncover the fate of The Giants.

I have been involved in a number of shorts and decided to start turning the ideas in my head into scripts. I had an agent but they thought my scripts were too difficult to place actually it was probably me that was not the right fit for them. So make your mind up if you read any of them. They are all different. There are four more that I need to polish before I add them here, 'Dig Deep' a bonkers black comedy, 'Perculiar Foul' a Steam Punk Horror, 'The Golem of SunnySide Towers' a Modern Dark Horror and 'The Funny...
