Product Description

It's one year on and following the death of Johnson, the ARC has been shaken by the long-term disappearance of Abby, Connor and team leader Danny. The government has appointed entrepreneurial-scientist Philip Burton to take charge of the operation, with a brand new building and new team. Ex-soldier and zoologist Matt, the highly efficient if unconventional Jess, the mysterious Gideon and anomaly-travelling Ethan all join the team, but are they ready for the challenges ahead?

As Connor and Abby finally escape the terrifying creatures of the Cretaceous to an uncertain welcome back at the ARC, Danny continues to fight his way through a Pliocene age Rift Valley, desperate to return to the team with a vital secret that will change their whole outlook. With a new team and new creature threats, the ARC team are facing their toughest challenges yet…

5.0 out of 5 stars Back on form! 6 Feb 2011
By Andromeda Descendent TOP 1000 REVIEWER
As a huge fan of Primeval from the beginning, I was gutted when the series was cancelled after series 3 and elated when it came back for a series 4. This series sees the return to the present day of Abby and Connor, now a couple, who get straight back to work investigating anomalies and hunting creatures. Some of the characters from series 3 are noticeably absent from the early episodes of series 4, but there are two surprise returns (although possibly one-offs) for prominent characters later in the series.

I know that the old characters have lots of fans, but the new characters are all welcome and interesting and settle in immediately. James Lester is still the boss, but he has been joined in the command role by private sector businessman Philip Burton (Alexander Siddig), who is more interested in the anomalies than the creatures that come through them. Captain Becker makes a welcome return, promoted to a lead character, and is given a love interest in Jess Parker (Ruth Kearney), who is responsible for tracking the anomalies in the control room. The role of male lead, following the mixed fan reception to Danny Quinn in series 3, was always going to be the most scrutinised and I don't think fans will have much to complain about in new character Matt Anderson (played by a brooding and serious Ciarán McMenamin), who seems to be one of the good guys, but is revealed to have infiltrated the ARC with a secret agenda, for which he has been training his whole life.

But this series is also noteworthy for its B-story involving time travellers Emily Merchant and Ethan Dubrowski (Ruth Bradley and Johnathon Byrne).

5.0 out of 5 stars We loved this series! 7 Feb 2011
By Paul N
We watch this show as a family and have enjoyed all the previous series. Our son (then 8/9rs) was very sad when the show was cancelled a couple of years ago, so he was thrilled to learn of it's return. We have all thoughly enjoyed this series with it's new twists and turns and will definately be buying it on dvd when it comes out.

Can't wait for the 2nd part of this series to be show on tv later in the year.

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly enjoyable 10 Feb 2011
By Mr. R. W. Graham VINE VOICE
As a newcomer to the world of Primeval, the first episode of the first series didn't grip me but i thought i'd take a chance on series 4 as i'd heard mostly good things about the previous series, this has come as a very pleasant surprise. Itv's answer to Doctor Who, and while not as good as that series it is a very enjoyable british sci fi series with a good cast and good effects. A lot of fun to watch and i'm already looking forward to the next series. A Primeval convert, this is the best thing itv has done in years. They were mad to even think of dropping it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great improvement on Primeval 26 Aug 2011
This fourth series of Primeval is a massive improvement of series one-three. Everything has changed. The scripts are more intelligent with many undercurrent story threads. The series has some continues story lines throughout that make the series more of an event.
The acting is very good too. The production and pace of the show has improved and the special effects are as good as ever.
The Arc is more believable and the whole show is much more enjoyable.
Series one-three relied entirely on the special effects, (which were excellent) but failed in terms of poor script and acting. This series takes a fresh look at the whole world of Primeval and it pays off.
I have seen all of the first four series twice now and this is easily the best one.
The best way to see this series is on DVD. The impact is lost through its TV, once a week showing. It is better to watch the episodes close together.
This is a good fun series and the DVD presentation is excellent.

I love this show, i used to watch as a kid/teenager and finding it again reminded me how much I love it. Its got quite simple content but most episode are exciting and make me want to watch the next one. The only thing is is the plot is similar in almost every episode.
