-->'''For the ''Series/DoctorWho'' episode, see Recap/DoctorWhoS31E01TheEleventhHour'''

Science-themed Crime Drama about the exploits of Dr. Jacob Hood (Professor Ian Hood in the UK version), a special government consultant dealing with crimes involving [[RippedFromTheHeadlines advanced science concepts the viewer has probably heard about on the news]].

Hood is ably assisted by an attractive bodyguard, Rachel Young, as he uses his genius to solve crimes based around things like [[CloningBlues cloning]], [[HumanPopsicle cryonics]], and genetic engineering. His exploits have allegedly made Hood some powerful enemies, though none of them have yet surfaced.

The original UK series starred Creator/PatrickStewart in the lead role, and is notable mostly for the fact that Patrick Stewart is the lead. A [[TransAtlanticEquivalent US remake]] with a more attractive cast (but less actual sex, due to differing SafeHarbor regulations) is more ongoing, and is most notable for being perhaps the only time a character on US television has been portrayed simultaneously as a genius and a human being with the capacity for emotion and social interaction who isn't suffering from some form of autism (See notes at SpockSpeak).

The series bears some similarity to the older series ''Series/{{Probe}}'', but is somewhat less fanciful.


----
!! This series provides examples of:

* ActionGirl: Rachel
* BritishBrevity: The original UK series lasted only 4 episodes.
* BunnyEarsLawyer: Hood is brilliant, but requires Rachel to keep an eye on him.
* CloudcuckoolandersMinder: As Hood's bodyguard, Rachel also acts in this role.
* CulturalTranslation
* ExecutiveMeddling: Seventeen episodes in, a new character, a physically large, unexperienced, slightly inept FBI agent, joins Hood's protection detail. You can almost hear network executives saying, "You know what this show lacks? A [[PluckyComicRelief comedy relief]] black guy."
* FakeAmerican: Rufus Sewell.
* FatalFamilyPhoto: In an episode dealing with an outbreak, a construction worker who mentions his son's birthday is sure enough the first one to show symptoms.
* IAlwaysWantedToSayThat: Hood: "Duty calls."
* {{Meganekko}}: Agent Young's glasses.
* OmnidisciplinaryScientist: Hood
* PhlebotinumAnalogy: Hood is fond of destructive analogies involving Rachel's luggage, toiletries, etc.
* ScienceIsBad: Subverted and played straight - the science is (generally) good; the people abusing it are bad. Examples:
** A suspended animation serum for long-term space travel is good; using it to attack teens on Spring Break [[spoiler: for raping the attacker's teen daughter]] is bad. [[spoiler: And somehow it became an STD that puts you in a coma, and then as a reward for waking up from the coma gives you ''flesh-eating bacteria''.]]
** A nanotech "virus" capable of creating super-efficient batteries is good; sabotaging it [[spoiler: which causes it infect humans, leaching them of metal to create an ultrafine layer of metal that's attractive to lightning]] is bad.
** Stem cell cancer treatments are good; stealing them for ultra-botox is bad. [[spoiler: Abusing it causes BodyHorror.]]
* ToadLicking: The solution to "Cardiac" turns out to involve this.
* TooSoon: Likely reason that the culprits behind heavy water experiments in "Miracle" were changed to white supremacists in the US version from ''the government, trying to secretly create false evidence of dangerous middle-eastern nuclear programs as a pretext to start an unjustified invasion''.
* TransAtlanticEquivalent
* WellIntentionedExtremist: The villain of the week tends to be this, ranging from [[spoiler: a park ranger poisoning Lake Michigan with mercury to raise awareness about pollution to a neurosurgeon performing illegal experiments on autistic teens to find a cure for autism.]]
