Much better than reviews suggest
6 December 2016 | by See all my reviews

I am frankly surprised by the negative reviews of paranoid. The series is by no means an award winner but it is very entertaining and suspenseful. Casting is a plus and settings in UK and Germany make it interesting. As for the premise: evil pharma- quite believable. Indira Varma from Luther and Robert Glenister (Code of a Killer) are well suited to their roles as dysfunctional police.I plan to source a few more with Christiane Paul who plays the German police officer Linda Felber. She was that good. To reiterate: don't be deceived by a few negative reviews.There are many worse ways to spend a few hours.

Definitely open to the idea of a second series.
