TV: Paradox

tamzin_outhwaite Just caught episode 1 of ‘Paradox’ a new series on BBC1 starring Tamzin Outhwaite as cop Rebecca Flint. It’s only a short series – five episodes I think, but it looks promising (providing the plots don’t get too unbelievable).

The premise is that images are being downloaded from space to some sort of research laboratory in the UK. When they’re examined, they seem to indicate a disaster/crime that is yet to happen. Or do they? The episode then slowly pieces together the images and a race-against-time plot emerges.

Episode 1 was very watchable – good acting, UK locations and impressive special effects (but luckily, not too many!). Lucy Mangan, from the Guardian thinks otherwise (see the link to her review below)
