Let me introduce the main character and inventor of the Dream Machine, Dr William Hobton:
Our doctor, once a youthful inventor and a leading light of the Royal Society, has staked his reputation on a radical new method to make humanity better. In 1792 he dedicated his life to ridding people of “fear” and retreated within his sleep hospital, the Old Steine’s Marlborough House, to begin his bold dream experiments. There he has remained jealously guarding his discoveries (and his patients!) for the last three hundred years or so. His only companion is his incredible Dream Machine, the contraption by which he keeps his patients in their eternal slumber.
As you can imagine by 2010 his youthful zeal has faded to bitter old age, disillusioned and distracted, unable to complete his experiment, the Doctor dwells within the mansion. There is something he is missing. And his patients, well, they want to wake up...
How will his experiment end? And just how long has he gone without sleeping?
The wonderful 18th century Doctor character design has been created by comics artist Andy P. The image above shows the Doctor at the beginning of his experiment, standing proud with his patented Dream helmet.
