TIM is a sentient bio-computer who appears in The Tomorrow People U.S. TV Series. In the pilot episode, TIM is shown to be mounted on the ceiling of a room in the underground sanctuary of the Tomorrow People. His appearance is boxy and mechanical (unlike the organic orbs of the Original Series TIM).

In the episode "Thanatos", Jedikiah Price calls TIM "obsolete", and derides him as being the "eight-track of artificial intelligence".

History Edit

John appears to have stolen TIM from Ultra.[1]

Functionality Edit

TIM is able to access the various computer systems of New York City, including traffic cameras.[2]

He has an exhaust system which is set to trigger every six minutes.[1]

In "Girl, Interrupted", Stephen inserted a "dongle" into the Ultra mainframe that allowed TIM to access their systems. When Jedikiah Price discovered the device, he planted false information that led to Cara's capture. The dongle was later removed.

Casting Edit

At the 2013 San Diego Comic-Con, executive producer Phil Klemmer said that TIM will appear in every episode of the U.S. TV Series. Danny Cannon (executive producer on the pilot and director of the first two episodes) is the voice of TIM. As to how this came about, Cannon said, "I was in the cutting room, and they needed an English voice, and now I’m TIM. I spoke the way my mother always wished I would speak, as TIM, instead of this ‘North London rebel’ [accent]."[3]

On 04 September 2013, Entertainment Weekly announced that Dan Stevens, one of the stars of Downtown Abbey, will be the voice of TIM.[4]
