Product Description

Product Description

Back at full strength, with Abby, Connor, Lester, Jess and Matt on board - the ARC team must race against time once again in its fight to save the public from the terrifying creatures appearing through the anomalies. The members encounter vicious burrowing creatures, enormous underwater predators, a raptor on the rampage in Victorian London; a Tyrannosaurus Rex prowling the streets and a mass of ferocious future-beetles laying siege to the ARC Headquarters.

But even as the team faces its most formidable challenges yet, it may have more to fear from inside the organisation. Can any of them they trust the new lab assistant April? Why is Connor set on helping Philip? And can Matt and Abby do anything to stop them? As secrets, plans and betrayals come to light, it’s time for the team to decide just whose side its on…

Special Features

  • New Dawn--Making the New Primeval Part 2

From Amazon.co.uk

A series that survived cancellation, saved thanks to a bold deal with cable television station Watch, the fifth season of Primeval is, as a result, likely to be discovered by many for the first time on DVD and Blu-ray. After all, this wasn’t screened on ITV this time around, and the audience, in turn, was smaller. But don’t be fooled--the production values here remain as strong as ever, and the ongoing narrative takes some very intriguing twists and turns. This is a full-on series of the show, and an exciting one at that. Thus, we get Primeval’s usual blend of monsters and critters causing all manner of problems, but also the secrets bubbling under the surface.

At its best, Primeval is terrifically good fun, particularly when it busts the budget and really goes to town on its monsters. There’s some excellent work in this series of the show, and it’s exciting, blockbuster television entertainment, with increasingly intriguing storylines. A sixth series would be very welcome indeed, and with any luck it’ll have a little less trouble getting commissioned… --Jon Foster

Ok so I've just finished watching the last episode and I have to say it was incredible. Having been with Primeval since the very first episode, I, like many other fans can probably say that it is different to how it was then. This series not only bought closure to Primeval as a whole but also left it open for what (HOPEFULLY) will be a sixth series.
For those who were disappointed with series 4, then I suggest you check out what is probably the last series as it was a definite improvement over it, moving the plot forward and so forth.
The special feature(s) on this disk is similar to that on the fourth series DVD, so it should be quite interesting. I will be getting this the day it comes out and I hope everyone else, like me, has enjoyed 4 fun years of Primeval : )

Series Five of Primeval is outstanding. This is a great series. It is easily the best of all five seasons of this science fiction series. Also this series is the best British science fiction series for many years.
The whole production is excellent. The production, the scripts, the acting, the sets and the special effects are all first class.
This series five makes up for the weaker series one and two in so much as it brings all of the elements to a seemingly climactic ending. It makes the whole story from series one to five seem worthwhile. We get to understand all of the simplicity and un explained factors of series one and two through to the more developed series three to five.
Each series has improved on the last one because each has no ultimate conclusion. This series brings everything to a sort of conclusion. Any of the earlier series are incomplete without this one.

Each episode has its own uniqueness and theme except the final two episodes that are effectively a two part story.

This series five and the earlier series four are in fact a new beginning for Primeval. This series five is a continuation of series four. ( It is a bit like series four part two). And both series are distinctly different from the previous series one-three.

Priveval is a British Science Fiction series originally produced for ITV by Impossible Pictures. The first two seasons saw scientists investigate the appearance of temporal anomalies across Britain. Pre historic and future creatures came through the anomalies causing terrible havoc. Both seasons were successful in the UK and both did reasonably well in America when transmitted through BBC America.

Though it's called series 5, this is series 4 part 2 of Primeval. You can tell from the story arc, and there are some giveaways in the 'making of' feature- the scripts refer to these episodes as, for example, "series 4 episode 9" instead of "series 5 episode 2". It was clearly filmed as one thirteen-part series, and then split into two 'series' between filming and broadcast.

This makes a difference to the series as a whole- rather than having its' own original developing plot, it picks up where the previous seven episodes left off and if you haven't seen series 4, series 5 will make very little sense. So only buy this if you've already got or seen series 4.

The episodes themselves are great. Moving the show's production to Ireland gave it a new lease of life and it ends up being a very polished, confident drama. The special effects are mostly excellent and the acting is strong. It's a bit more predictable than something like "Doctor Who" but it's still good all-round family entertainment sci-fi.

The 'extras' (or rather, 'extra'- singular) is disappointing, as it's really the leftover bits from the 'making the new primeval' documentary that appeared on the series 4 disc, which feels like it's more aimed at trying to persuade new audiences to watch the show, rather than giving existing fans any real behind-the-scenes interest. Some more in-depth extras featuring longer interviews with the cast, or the writers, would've been very welcome.

As I write this the latest news is that "Primeval: New World" will be the next time we'll see Primeval on TV. It'll be American-made, feature a mostly or completely new cast, it'll "start fresh" plot-wise, and they haven't started filming it yet so it won't be on TV for quite a while. So while you're waiting, enjoy these last six episodes of the original Primeval.

From Series One until this one - this hugely entertaining British Sci-Fi TV series was underrated and misjudged. Shame. This amazing slice of British Sci-Fi did not stand a chance at peak-time telly against multitudes of vacuous tacky simple-minded "reality tv shows" that has infected British telly nowadays...'Nuff Factual Truth Said.

Well what a good ending !...or was it ?.....the final team were very strong and for me credit where it is due...cause prior this show has been all over the place, and it's good episodes get lost between many that are from the pick and mix of both acting and idea's.....it's main fault is it can't conclude an ending, and like a child it starts again when it should stop...my family disagree and love everything about it....I feel thank God it's over!
