played Professor lan Hood in Eleventh Hour (UK)

Professor Ian Hood is a Professor Emeritus of Physics and now works as science advisor for the government. He is tasked to solve different issues revolving around modern science topics. For his research on these issues, he doesn't operate out of an office, and he has no support team, but works through his contacts and his influence on other scientists and institutions to get to the truth.

After receiving a death threat, he is provided a personal protection officer, Rachel Young, who is appointed to safeguard him on each of his further investigations. Although Rachel tries to keep him away from trouble, Hood occasionally ignores her advice, making her job even harder.

Although Hood is expected to supply budgets to the government for his investigations, which he has to predict and request before he starts a job, being empirically driven, he usually winds up underestimates the costs, which leads to the obligatory trouble with his accountant supervisor. However, these disputes don't mean much to him, because he does work nobody else is able to do, and the bills always end up being paid for anyway.

He is a committed scientist who doesn't believe in any supernatural phenomena. If no one can tell what's behind a mysterious occurrence, he will search and find the scientific explanation behind it. Although he had sought out alternative healing methods for his sick and dying wife at the point where science couldn't help her anymore, and after they tried almost everything else, and his wife still died, he came once more to the conclusion that only science can really lead one to the truth.
