Patrick Stewart stars as science professor Ian Hood, who works for the Home Office as a consultant on special dangerous cases that involve deadly viruses, cloning experiments etc. Special Branch agent Rachel Young is his partner.
Fresh out of the farm, Annie Walker must adapt to the challenging life of a CIA operative under the guidance of her handler, Auggie. But soon she realizes her recruit might have to do with her last boyfriend rather than her talent.
I enjoyed the combination of shows wrapped up into this one. This show is a blend of odd mysteries like House without the harsh character that I find hard to watch too often. It adds in CSI type investigations looking at microscopic details. The amount of science trivia adds interesting information about everyday things. There is puzzle solving similar to Monk or The Psychic where the main character uses his memory to piece together obscure information into the solution. I have not seen the episodes with Patrick Stewart, but the episodes with Rufus Sewell and I like the way he plays the character in a calm and cool, lost in thought manner. I think the time slot the show has is its biggest problem in gaining more popularity. 10:00PM is after many working people have shut off the TV and gone to bed. I think if this show was given the 8:00PM time slot in place of trashy shows like "How I met your mother", it would do much better in the ratings.
