Trivia

At the end of the last episode in Season one, it is revealed that Nick Cutter's trip back in time to the Permian Period changed the "present", with only he knowing the truth. The character Claudia Brown no longer exists, but has now morphed into Jenny Lewis (also played by Lucy Brown) and there is now the existence of the ARC - the Anomaly Research Centre. The remainder of the seasons play out in this altered time-line. See more »

Enjoyable fluff!
15 March 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I didn't expect a great deal from Primeval which is perhaps why I now find myself pleasantly surprised by it. The casting is excellent and story lines, although sometimes far-fetched, are nevertheless highly enjoyable. It's the little gem on Saturday night TV which these days are pretty much few and far between.

For those who are keen to compare it to Doctor Who and Torchwood, I must say I personally don't think it's similar to either of them. Yes, it's the same genre but give the thing a chance! -- I'm not sure half the people who have slated this have even watched it.

At the end of the day, Primeval was never going to be groundbreaking - and, to its credit, I don't think it sets out to be anything of the sort - but it is a great piece of telly fluff that'll certainly keep me tuned for series two.
