Paradox is a gripping and intense British television series that was aired on BBC America in 2009 and 2010. Starring the talented Tamzin Outhwaite, the show follows the investigation of a group of scientists and police officers into unsettling and seemingly inexplicable events.

At the core of the show's narrative is a mysterious airplane crash that triggers a series of bizarre and inexplicable events. The crash seems to defy all known laws of physics and logic, prompting the investigation team to delve into some of the most cutting-edge theories of science and technology.

What sets Paradox apart from other procedural dramas is its blend of science fiction and real-world issues. The show explores complex themes such as time travel, parallel universes, and the implications of advanced technology on human society. The investigative team is led by tough, no-nonsense detective Rebecca Flint (played by Outhwaite), who is forced to confront these issues head-on as she tries to solve the case.

As the investigation unfolds, the team gradually connects a series of seemingly unrelated incidents, uncovering a web of deceit, secrets and hidden agendas. Along the way, they face some of the most daunting moral dilemmas and ethical challenges which require them to question their own beliefs and motivations.

One of the key strengths of the show is its characters. While Rebecca Flint is the lead, the rest of the ensemble cast, including D.I. Ben Holt (played by Mark Bonnar) and the scientist Dr. Christian King (Alec Newman), have their own backstories and motivations, which add depth and complexity to the narrative.

Another strong point is the show's attention to detail, particularly in its portrayal of the scientific concepts and theories. From the subtle nuances of quantum physics to the ethical implications of advanced biomedical technology, the series explores some of the most intriguing and thought-provoking ideas in modern science.

Despite its engaging characters and intriguing plotlines, Paradox maintains a sense of realism and gravitas throughout, never straying too far into the realm of far-fetched fantasy. The show's writers have clearly done their homework when it comes to scientific accuracy, a level of attention that distinguishes it from other genre shows.

At the same time, the series is not without its share of thrills and suspense. The investigation team must contend with a string of intense and often life-threatening situations, including high-speed chases, terrorist attacks, and assassination attempts. These moments of action and danger provide a welcome counterbalance to the show's more cerebral and contemplative elements.

In summary, Paradox is a smart, engrossing, and thought-provoking show that pushes the boundaries of the traditional procedural drama. With its top-notch cast, complex characters, and richly detailed storytelling, it is a must-see for fans of science fiction, crime drama, or anyone who enjoys a good mystery. It is a true testament to British television at its best.

Paradox is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (5 episodes). The series first aired on May 12, 2010.
