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 »

ITV's answer to the Who phenomenon
10 February 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Okay, so the dinosaurs are a little hokey, but I really enjoyed the first episode of Primeval. The fact of the matter, you've got to look at it from the perspective that it's a UK-based fantasy series - so you've got to make sure you've taken a huge dollop of irony with the hole thing. I mean Torchwood is set in Cardiff - and making it look like a dynamic city took some hefty salt pinching on the viewer's behalf. So the Forest of Dean being the site of a portal to the past where dinosaurs can hide is really a walk in the park. So,getting past the dinosaur that moved like a Doberman - and the flying dinosaur that seem to have been taking cute lessons from my cat, the cast were interesting. Only Ben Murray and Hannah Spearitt were actors that I immediately recognised. I kind of knew Douglas Henshall's name. But the stand out actor of the first series was James Murray as Stephen Hardy. The tracker and hunter, with a penchant for playing chicken with huge carnivorous dinosaurs, is a good looking bloke. I reckon that he out-charisma-ed everyone off the screen. Ultimately, I laughed my socks off at the machismo, but that didn't stop me enjoying it.
