Eleventh Hour 2006

     Ian Hood is a science professor and he works as a consultant on special dangerous cases.  He is a special advisor to the government’s Joint Sciences Committee.  Rachel Young is a Special Branch agent and she is always with Ian as his protection.  These are the titles and breakdown for these episodes:
           Resurrection:  Investigation of human cloning.
           Containment:  An outbreak of a hybrid smallpox/tanapox virus.
           Kryptos:  A scientist vanishes, there is a mystery about his climate research.
           Miracle:  Young boy is healed from a tumor by the waters of a local spring.
     I thought all the episodes were good and they are from a different perspective.  Hood and Young are hard hitting investigators and they don’t give up easily.  Hood has a government badge and that gets him into a lot of places.  Young is a Detective Sergeant on special assignment.  Smaller police stations in the UK usually have five Detective Constables (DC) with a Detective Sergeant (DS) in overall command.  3 ½* (I liked this series)

90 min each, 2 discs, 4 episodes, TV, Sci-Fi directed by Stephen Gallagher with Patrick Stewart, Ashley Jensen, Jane Lapotaire.

Note:  Imdb 6.9 out of 10, 8.3 out of 10 with 137 votes, Amazon 3.5* out of 5* with 36 reviews.
Special Note:  Filmed in Manchester, Greater Manchester, England, UK.  This program had potential but there were not enough viewers in the UK to continue the episodes.  There is a US remake produced by Jerry Bruckheimer with Rufus Sewell that aired on CBS from 2008 to 2009.
