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.
A marine biologist, an insurance salesman and a teen-aged boy find their lives fundamentally changed by the emergence of a new, and often dangerous, species of sea life, while government agents work to keep the affair under wraps.
It's intelligent, it's funny, it's well written and it's catching. (Rufus and Marley will reel you in as if you were a fish on a hook.) It's also a great mystery and shame that it was canceled. When you hitchhike trough the TV-landscape it is exceedingly difficult to find shows that's not stupid. Once upon a time there was a great hope that television would better peoples life. Make us better and better advised. There was also great fear that this media would stupify people and make them numb. I always found both arguments naive. Of course that was before shows like "Real housewives" and "It only hurts when I laugh". And so on. Today I'm not so sure. It's therefore a relief when you find a show that entertain without stupifying.
Why was it canceled? No matter how hard I try I can't figure out how these TV-executives think. If they do at all. I suspect sometimes that they are merely instinctive beings.
But experts and executives aside, don't be stupid, don't miss out on the Eleventh Hour.
