Classic Brit Crime Thriller with an international twist....
Paranoid is a Brit crime drama that follows the "classic formula" whilst adding in a twist, in the form of an international conspiracy.
Its hard to fault British crime series. They really set the standard for both realism and intrigue. This series is, for the most part, no different.
The story is engaging and interesting, readily capturing and holding your attention. The characters too, are rendered as real, flawed and oftentimes, fragile people.
Perhaps my only criticism is the pace of this series sometimes flounders and I felt some characters were a little redundant. In particular, the young detectives neurotic,controlling mother seems like a pointless addition.
All in all, still a worthwhile watch. Seven out of ten from me.
