H G Wells 's ideas haunt the 20th century, yet he is now disregarded critically. He is routinely credited as the grandfather of science fiction but this has overshadowed his other achievements. Brian Morton argues that Wells widened the "class catchment" of the English novel in a way which puts all subsequent writers in his debt. Producer Ian Docherty
