This series was the best yet. Finally a Sci fi show to rival Dr Who, great effects, great plots, this series really found its feet. Some fantastic stories made it the best season so far. Ends on a great cliff-hanger which see varies members of the team trapped in different time zones. Ealier in the year ITV axed this series due to cutbacks in programme making but they have now had a change of heart and it will return in 2011 for 2 new seasons as a co production between BBC America and a German TV network. 13 new episodes in total will be made. Thank you ITV for having a change of heart on what is your best Sci-fi show ever.

Absolutely fantastic, always very gripping. Abbey and Connor make this series unmissable and the creatures are so lifelike they are terrifying.

So ITV have axed Primeval at its peak? Just shows that they don't have a clue about real entertainment value. Game shows and "reality TV" seems to be their forte these days and will probably be for a long time to come. The fact that Primeval is gaining excellent reviews in the USA, where sci-fi shows bite the dust with alarming regularity, should be an indicator to its true worth. OK, Primeval isn't the most logical programme on TV - some of the science is decidedly offish - but look again at one of the most popular sci-fi series ever - Space:1999 - and you will realise that this isn't too important to a whole lot of people. Primeval has fast plots, humour and likeable characters. You can watch it with the kids and not be worried about the content, but it still has enough bite - literally sometimes - to keep adult interest. Series 3 is sometimes infuriating, sometimes exciting, sometimes even thought provoking and shows great promise for a potential future series or two. The production values vary a lot and the special effects are sometimes less than state of the art - so what? - Doctor Who has had some very shaky moments, but is still with us. This is because the stories are good and rise above the limitations of budget and wobbly sets. Despite having minimal extras, this is a cracking DVD set and will certainly be a mainstay of my late night viewing for a while to come. As for the future of the show... There was once a TV series called Farscape which got axed on a cliff-hanger ending. The fans didn't give up and roll over, but kept on lobbying for another series. Eventually a mini-series was made to round it off. Email ITV to tell them how much money is to be made through selling abroad and merchandising as this seems to be their criteria for successful TV.Read more ›

Killing off and retiring half the cast was rather disturbing. I rather liked the characters and some of the new ones will take time to grow on me. That said it was good to see the nutty Helen hoist by her own petard and I imagine the new line up appeals to a younger audience. It is really good that a fourth season is in the offing given that at least two of the characters are stuck in time and there are a number loose ends to tie up.
The ARC is still under threat from MI5 but Helen sees to that in her own inimitable way, before deciding that the existence of man on earth is a bad thing. As the plot unwinds so does her mind. The "romance" between Hanah Spearitt's character and her would-be suitor does develop but one way adn onother other relationships split up. Not quite a Dr Who beater but well worth watching and far less predictable.

**** slight spoilers ****

OK so series 1 was a bit lightweight, but still did just enough to pique my interest. Series 2 was a welcome progression, introducing a few darker and more adult themes. Series 3 brings it all together with a far greater scope, more intelligent and involved story lines, improved CGI and much better characterisation. There are a few shocks along the way as a major character gets killed off, changing the whole dynamic of the team. And yet it all still works. The major new addition to the team is Jason Flemyng (of Lock Stock and Benjamin Button fame) who plays the new macho tough guy with just the right amount of ironic posturing and humour. Some of his stunts would make James Bond gulp in disbelief! A couple of the episodes struck me as a tad weak and whimsical (episode 2 with the invisible gremlin-like creature and 5 with the downright silly fungus man), but that was more than compensated by other intelligent and even profound plots. My favourite has to be episode 7 with the medieval knight still fighting dragons in today's London. The CGI was superb in this - the dracorex loping across those English country lanes was beautifully done. The 'Green Man' Inn figuring in the two time lines and the knight discovering his own tomb were genuinely profound and thought-provoking scenarios. Then, as if that wasn't enough, the writers stepped it all up a notch, switching from apocalyptic future glimpses, to an act of near-genocide at the dawn of humankind. It all ends on a real cliff-hanger and I hope they employ some very clever script-writers to provide us with plausible continuity for the start of season 4! As for the main players, Connor and Abby are as likeable as ever (you'll cheer when that long-awaited kiss occurs!
