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)
