Paradox -A new Sci-Fi thriller coming to BBC One this Autumn

So BBC have announced their new line up for Autumn and the only thing aside from Doctor Who that caught my interest was this five part Sci-fi thriller. The writer Lizzie Mickery was also responsible for the adaptation of The 39 Steps which I enjoyed a lot.

The whole stopping crimes before they happen has been done a few times before but it’s still an  interesting premise and I’m looking forward to seeing how they handle it.


If you could see the future, would you change it? That’s the dilemma facing Detective Inspector Rebecca Flint (Tamzin Outhwaite) and astrophysicist Dr Christian King (Emun Elliott) when a series of rogue images transmitted into his laboratory from space, throw them together.

The fragmented images appear to be of a major incident, but shockingly they suggest it has yet to happen; it’s in the future. Christian, Rebecca and her team, DS Ben Holt (Mark Bonnar) and DC Callum Gada (Chiké Okonkwo), have just 18 hours to work out the clues and prevent a tragedy.

A series of five episodes by Lizzie Mickery, Paradox is an intriguing, high-concept, high-octane, investigative drama, in which the team must not only prevent complex crimes and incidents, but wrestle with the moral and emotional implications of changing the future.
