The increasingly barmy
is supposed to be a thriller, but when its central mystery is boiled down by one of its characters as “the whole thing is about words typed on paper”, interest starts to drizzle away.
But then Paranoid has so many things NOT going for it – characters without a scrap of believability, dialogue that makes not a jot of sense (“the biggest cop, the cop that will get you, is the cop in your head”. What?) and a plot that’s all over the place.
If you’re still hanging on by your fingernails (there are another FIVE episodes after this one), the thick DC’s suffocating, crimson-lipped vamp of a mother (Polly Walker) provides most of tonight’s fun.
Alec is rescued from the water and rushed to hospital, where he receives an unexpected visitor. In Dusseldorf, Linda's suspicions seem justified when she has a breakthrough and starts to believe Ruben Locana's death was not an accident. Back in the UK, Bobby, Nina and Alec face a race against time as they try to locate the pages at the heart of the case. Conspiracy thriller, starring Robert Glenister, Indira Varma, Dino Fetscher and Christiane Paul, with Lesley Sharp, Neil Stuke, John Duttine and Anji Monhindra.
