I watched Primeval Series Three, hoping that it would be as great as the first two series. And it turned out to be just as good as the other two series! We get some great new human characters and cool creatures, in this third series. Sadly, the last episode of series three, leaves us with a cliffhanger ending!

Hopefully, when the movie version of Primeval hits theaters, we will get to find out what happens to Abby, Connor, and Danny. But, for now, we'll just have to wait and see. The DVD set contains all ten episodes of Series Three. The episodes are listed below and contain spoilers.


Episode One- An exhibition of ancient Egyptian relics comes to the British Museum and an anomaly opens in a mysterious monument called the `Sun Cage'. A Pristichampsus, believed in Ancient Egypt to be the demon Ammut, emerges and proceeds to wreak havoc in London. Cutter, Abby, and new head of security Captain Becker pursue it through the city while Connor and new recruit, the Egyptologist, Sarah Page try to block off the anomaly and prevent more Pristichampsus from coming through. Meanwhile, Lester encounters a new adversary: the ambitious Christine Johnson.

Episode Two- Three teenage boys break into a house and a Future Gremlin attacks them. Only one boy manages to escape. With the anomaly closed, the Gremlin remains stuck in the house for the next 14 years, by which time Cutter's model has led him to predict that another anomaly will appear in that very house. He sends Connor, Abby and Jenny to investigate but the three have a run-in with the creature and PC Danny Quinn, who is trying to find out who murdered his brother.

Episode Three- An anomaly opens in a London hospital, causing several Diictodon to emerge.

Just like the dinosaurs who decendants the birds are still around even if the larger branches of the species are gone this show isn't dead yet. The only problem with this series is that they never made enough episodes. So that main characters aren't around long enough. They should go for 20 episodes a season like they do in the U.S. I enjoyed this season for it's great stories but they removed the main villian and hero during it, which would take sixty episodes in a American Show. Well at least this fun show will be coming back in two forms: A feature movie, (which may or not be the same actors) and at least two series of 13 episodes in 2011. Not only has Primeval been revived from the grave, it will also get not one but two new series (series=seasons in the US) which will total 13 episodes.
here's the official story:

The fourth season will premiere on ITV early in 2011. The fifth season will premiere on UKTV later in 2011.

Primeval fans will be ecstatic, because the new deal is on top of Warner Bros. continued production of a full scale Primeval feature film.

So we fans fo this great show will get to see more great primeval eps!
The best place to start is season 1 and 2 , which are on a single boxset and then grab this one. THe show has incredible effects and engaging characters. So get primevalized!
on jan 1, 2011 on bbc america this hit show is coming back.

Handsome Male Lead: Danny Quinn, you are doing it wrong.

Sorry, but Primeval without Stephen was bad enough, but Primeval without Nick? No, not cool. Very much not cool. We stuck around until the cliffhanger end, the very annoying cliffhanger ending since the show has been cancelled and will possibly be sold to America to be completely re-done, but once Dougie was no longer the loveable Nick Cutter the show took a very large nose dive. If you already like Primeval, you're going to pick this up regardless, but new people, be warned: this show has a habit of killing the people you love, or even like, and it certainly doesn't stop in this season. Not by a long shot.

It's gratifying that, once in a while, the forces of good can triumph over evil, and by that I mean that PRIMEVAL gets a welcome reprieve from the axe. There is now projected to be a Series 4 and 5. Meanwhile, Season 3 churns out ten more fantastic episodes and continues to chronicle morose scientist Nick Cutter and his crew's explorations of the time rifts or "anomalies" that have been bedeviling modern-day England. More prehistoric creatures are featured, as well as more futuristic monsters. We learn the function of that mysterious artifact. And, oy, Connor gets to first base with Abby. Brilliant.

This series showcases a revolving door as new cast members arrive and old ones depart (some more permanently than others). But the quote from James Lester, snooty head administrator of ARC (the Anomaly Research Center), still applies: This crew is still very much "a highly strung and temperamental team of rank amateurs who just happen to be brilliant at what they do." New members include a dashing security officer, a feisty Egyptologist, and a resourceful maverick cop.

ARC is still doing its damndest to keep knowledge of the anomalies on the hush from the general public, but it's a herculean bear of a task as anomalies tend to sometimes pop up in the most inconvenient of places. Prehistoric creatures that menace the ARC crew number the crocodile-like Pristichampsus, a flock of carnivorous terror birds called the Titanis (they resemble evil giant ostriches), burrowing Diictodons which vie with Rex (Abby's pet Coelurosauravus) in cuteness, and the terrifying Giganotosaurus (which is larger than a T-Rex). Made up creatures include a fungi monster, a camouflage goblin, and a giant insect (as imagined by a contest winner).
