BBC America brings us a supernatural paranormal mystery thriller that surrounds a mysterious secret society named Qui Reverti, which for centuries has known that immortality can effectively be attained by taking control of another person's life. The premise is rather simple. Each person has two souls. Prior to the death of a member of Qui Reverti , their consciousness, and/or soul, is activated through the use of a trigger. (An object familiar to them in that life.) A Shepherd is given the task of activating them both prior to death, and again with that trigger once a life has been found that is suitable for intrusion. At least this is what we know so far. The show is shrouded in mystery which will make it quite appealing to anyone who enjoys the genre.

Based on the book "The Intruders" by Michael Marshall Smith, Intruders hosts an impressive ensemble of writers, directors, and actors to bring this show to life. Cast includes James Frain who plays Richard Shepherd, an assassin for hire and a shepherd/protector of Qui Reverti. Millie Brown who plays Madison O'Donnell, a 9 year old girl who is taken over by a centuries old serial killer named Marcus Fox. Mira Sorvino who plays Amy Whelan, a woman who is taken over by another woman named Rose Gilchrist. John Simm, who plays Amy's husband Jack Whelan, who is an ex-cop that gets caught in the middle of Qui Reverti's intrusion into his wife Amy's life and sets out to discover what happened to her.

Despite the somewhat slow story progression, and only 8 episodes in the season (hopefully there will be more) the combination of writing, acting and directing makes intruders one of the better new shows this year. The acting skills of Millie Brown at just 10 years old is simply astonishing. A phenomenal show! I for one have enjoyed this series immensely. I sure hope there is a 2nd season.

A must watch for any fan of paranormal or mystery.
