Aldus Crick is a character in The Tomorrow People U.S. TV Series. He is played by Nicholas Young, who portrayed John in the Original Series.

Crick was a scientist, and founded Ultra along with brothers Jedikiah Price and Roger Price.

Personal Life Edit

Crick was born on 7 June 1952 in Canterbury, England. He lives alone in a cabin, somewhere in Bar Harbor, Maine.

Professional Life Edit

According to TIM, Crick earned a Bachelor of Science degree from Princeton University in 1974, and a PhD in Physics in 1978. He was named Department Chair in 1983, but his tenure was revoked in 1994.

Crick taught behavioral science at Princeton University, where he met Jedikiah (who taught molecular biology). One day, Jedikiah approached him in the cafeteria and offered to introduce him to someone who would "blow his mind". That person turned out to be Roger, and soon the three began working together to explore the Tomorrow People phenomenon. But, according to Jedikiah, Crick's work became unconventional.

Under Crick's guidance, Jedikiah and Roger conducted research and dangerous experiments, so much so that they nicknamed Crick "Dr. Death", or "Thanatos" (the mythological personification of Death).

One avenue of reasearch was into Roger's ability to stop time. Crick hypothesized that by stopping time while teleporting, in the interval between disappearing and re-appearing, he would arrive "in a time out of time" that they termed limbo.
