Paradox is nearly here

So we’ve been following this show for a while now but until today I had no idea when it was going to be aired.

I saw the first trailer for it on BBC One last week. I liked what I saw  and after Outhwaite’s brilliant performance in The Fixer  very I’m keen to see what she does with a series like this.

You can take a look at the trailer here.

The first episode  kicks off  on Tuesday 24 November at 9pm.

Dr Christian King, a world-renowned astrophysicist, claims to have received a series of images from space. The images show fragments of an event, an explosion in which many are killed. Shockingly, Dr King claims the disaster is yet to happen. It will take place in 18 hours time.

Is this an elaborate warning of a terrorist attack, or could it be something else? Uncertain, DI Rebecca Flint and her team investigate Dr King and the images. But as the pieces of the jigsaw puzzle come together, it becomes clear that this is a chain of events which no person could possibly predict or plan.

With time running out a tragedy drawing closer DI Flint begins to contemplate the impossible – that the images might not be a coded warning or an elaborate threat, but a genuine glimpse of the future.

Paradox is a bold, fast-paced, character-driven thriller from Clerkenwell Films for BBC Northern Ireland.

This gripping 5 x 60’series for BBC One stars Tamzin Outhwaite (The Fixer, Hotel Babylon) as Detective Inspector Rebecca Flint, who is thrown together with Space Scientist Dr Christian King (Emun Elliott) when a series of rogue images are transmitted from space into his laboratory. The fragmented images appear to be of a major incident but, shockingly, they also suggest it is yet to happen – it’s in the future.

With each episode of this high-concept and intriguing series set to a relentless ticking clock, Christian, Rebecca and her team, DS Ben Holt (Mark Bonnar) and DC Callum Gada (Chiké Okonkwo), face a race against time as they only have 18 hours to put together the clues of this most complex of jigsaw puzzles and try to prevent almost certain tragedy.

The reason how, and why, these images are being transmitted to them is a mystery. Forced to intervene in the course of destiny, the underlying question posed throughout Paradox is: “If you could see the future, would you change it?”

Created and written by Lizzie Mickery (Messiah, The 39 Steps and The State Within), Paradox is directed by Bafta award-winning Simon Cellan Jones (Generation Kill, Our Friends In The North) and Omah Madha (Law & Order – UK, Burn Up) and commissioned by Ben Stephenson, Controller, BBC Drama Commissioning, and Jay Hunt, Controller, BBC One.
