From the makers of Afterlife and Persuasion, comes a high octane drama series that sees a team of detectives in a race against time to change the future.
A series of mysterious images are transmitted from space. They appear to show an explosion, a major incident in which many are killed – but the images also suggest the incident hasn’t even happened yet – that it will take place in 18 hours.
DI Rebecca Flint (Tamzin Outhwaite) and her team, DS Ben Holt (Mark Bonnar) and DC Callum Gada (Chiké Okonkwo) investigate, alongside Dr Christian King (Emun Elliott), a top space scientist whose satellite picked up these rogue images.
As Dr King attempts to find the source of these images in the infinite possibility of space, the rest of the team struggle with their new found responsibility. Forced to intervene in the course of destiny, never certain whether or not the future is in their control, is it really their place to change the future, to play God? And is their very involvement actually helping to cause the tragedies they are trying to prevent?

maybe this didn't succeed because it wasn't American. It just doesn't have the violence in it that American programs have. I say that as many people say person of interest is the American equivalent and that has proved a hit, and that is so much more violent
it wasn't a success but this is great viewing and died the death because of poor viewing figures and being too tame for todays generation.
tamzin and the rest of the cast and writers should be proud of this production, I hope they are. it deserved so much more
The interaction between the main characters is fascinating to watch and leaves you wondering what will happen next
Without going into to much detail the endings to each episode always hold a surprise
Again like others have said before me the biggest disappiontment about the program is that there was no second series
I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys sci-fi or Police programs as i feel it links both genres very well indeed
Science-Fiction at its finest. Though provoking.
Causes you to think about the proper use of knowledge
and what you would do if you had foreknowledge of an event
occurring that would have serious ramifications for countless people.
Would recommend this to anyone who enjoys science-fiction and mysteries.
That's the good stuff. The negative aspect, as pointed out by a previous reviewer, is the undeniable fact that we only get HALF a story. Without giving away the specifics, at the series' conclusion we have three of the four main characters in deep trouble and then, as a parting shot, a tantalizing hint as to where the images MIGHT be coming from. And that's it, end of. Writer Lizzie Mickery must be furious, she had apparently set the story up to run over two, possibly three seasons, and now it appears that this one season is all the BBC is prepared to give us.. It gives me no incentive at all to invest time and attention on future BBC drama series, and as a result, I can't give this DVD the five stars which its fascinating premise and exciting execution probably deserve. To me, it's still a work in progress. I can only urge you to watch "Paradox", enjoy it and wonder what might have been! (Oh, and if Ms Mickery ever fancies turning her screenplay into a novel to explain it all...)
Like a simular show from the mid 1990s "Crime Traveller" that also was clever, inteligent, had hints of time travel and was also axed, this series has some good use of the science fiction genre. The BBC showed that they still have a set agenda of "what we like" even in 2009.
This is a good mini series that hopefully is safe on DVD.
