The main premise of the series is that Creator/JulesVerne did not imagine most of his creations but based them on his real-life experiences. He was unable to refer them straight because of their clandestine and classified nature. As a young student and struggling playwright gifted with tremendous imagination, Verne (Chris Demetral) was captured by the sinister League of Darkness and subsequently rescued by Rebecca Fogg (Francesca Hunt), an agent in the employ of British Intelligence and [[AroundTheWorldInEightyDays Phileas Fogg]] (Michael Praed), her cousin, technically also an agent but much more reluctant after being disillusioned by the government. Together with Phileas' valet Passepartout (Michel Coutremanche) they embark on various adventures. Determined to thwart any danger to the British Crown, they more often than not face the shadowy League of Darkness led by monstrous Count Gregory (Mike Overton).
