Hood goes up against an FBI deputy director when a psychotic woman accuses the man of stealing her son, and the stakes go much higher when Rachel is taken hostage and Jacob is accused of complicity ...
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.
I don't get BBC America anymore. Now that I live in Sanford, my cable company doesn't carry it. When I lived in Saco, my old cable company did carry it. So I'm not familiar with the British version of Eleventh Hour. However, I am familiar with The X-Files. Eleventh Hour is a British remake of The X-Files. Both shows are similar. The series is about a government scientist who works for the FBI. (In the British version, it's the Home Office,) who has an FBI babysitter. Agent Rachel Young is Dr.Jacob Hood. The pilot, and episodes that followed, dealt with everything from natural gas in the water, to cloning. In the pilot, an unknown fertility doctor with the alias "Gepetto," is cloning babies. Gepetto was revealed to be a doctor who was infertile and wanted to remake herself. Another episode dealt with a Department of Environmental Protection official who was polluting the water supply of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, to make a point. Young is Scully, the skeptic, and Hood is Mulder, the believer, who thinks everything's related. There aren't any references to UFOs in this show, unlike The X-Files, but the stories are more mundane and down-to-earth.
