Whilst Lester appoints Jenny as temporary leader and Connor perfects his machine to close anomalies, a Giganotosaurus, a huge carnivorous dinosaur, appears in an aircraft hangar and eats a television crew summoned by greedy reporter Harper and his editor. To the team's initial annoyance, Danny Quinn arrives but proves his worth when they have to save a besieged air crew from the monster. Lester is suspicious that his boss Christine Johnson is conducting secret experiments in the ARC. Written by

Did You Know?
The 747 involved in the Gigantosaurus fracas was retired British Airways 747-236B G-DBXJ. It was modified for use as a prop in the movie Casino Royale. Its inboard engines were replaced with a mock-up of a pair of engines and its outboard engines were replaced with simulated fuel tanks. It was given the fictitious registration N88892 and was located at Dunsfold. See more
When the juvenile dinosaur comes through the anomaly, the Documentary Presenter identifies it as a "...velociraptor...from the late cretaceous". This is correct, and he then goes on to say that it's "...eighty million years old". However, the estimated range of the velociraptor species is 75 to 71 million years ago. Furthermore, the Giganotosaurus predated velociraptors by some fifteen million years, so unless the other end of the anomaly is shifting, the two creatures could not have come from the same time and place. In any case, the chronological age of any living thing passing through an anomaly is not changed by the number of years it has traversed. See more
The door's jammed, Connor, go round the other side.
Oi, I give the orders around here.
Connor, round the other side.
