The Primeval team are back and Nick Cutter is fighting to re-focus his embattled team who are still reeling from Stephen’s death and the scale of Helen’s betrayal. Cutter’s crew are joined by some new recruits in the form of maverick policeman Danny Quinn, sparky Egyptologist Sarah Page, and the new leader of the ARC’s security forces Captain Becker. But as the anomalies continue to present an unrelenting series of threats, the task in hand seems almost impossible. With events getting even wilder, creatures steeped in ancient folklore begin to make an appearance and it becomes clear that the origins of myths and legends are linked with the mysterious anomalies. But it’s not just deadly creatures the team has to contend with; the cloak of secrecy behind which they have been working is beginning to slip and questions are being asked as the conspiracy spreads its net wide. And as deadlier creatures continue to rampage through the anomalies – the team faces a threat to the future of not just the ARC but of mankind itself..
DVD EXTRAS: Cutter’s Odyssey Genesis of a Creature AUDIO Commentaries
Let season three of Primeval finally be known as the point when it managed to fully gel together. Unfairly dismissed in recent years as ITV’s attempt to rival the BBC’s Doctor Who juggernaut, and also as a monster of the week blockbuster, the show’s third series adds plenty of meat to the proverbial bones.
At heart, Primeval remains vibrant Saturday night entertainment, and very good entertainment at that. Each episode is action-packed, and boasts steadily improving special effects, as different creatures from time continue to appear in the present day. However, for Nick Cutter and his team, there’s a deeper problem, with a conspiracy to uncover alongside the various monsters to survive.
And it’s the underlying narrative that really strengthens this series of Primeval. Taken aside, the individual episodes are welcome slices of entertainment in their own right. But as Cutter and his team begin to unravel things around them, the show builds up to a compelling and interesting climax. It’s, as a result, an increasingly confident show, and one that’s willing and capable when it comes to throwing major twists and turns into the pot. With rumours now of a big screen version in the works, Primeval goes from strength to strength, and season four simply can’t come soon enough. --Jon Foster

Great fun for my kids..and myself
Sadly, this is actually the last series, as - almost unbelievably if you didn't know that they're making severe cutbacks - ITV have now axed the show.
In recent television history, only two British science fiction shows have been of high enough quality to beat the North Americans at their own game, and those are Doctor Who and Primeval. It's so sad that ITV - a limp organisation with no ambition - have chosen not to even bother trying to replicate the international success of shows such as Stargate SG-1 (not an American series incidentally - it's produced by Canada, so why can't we do the same for the Americans with Primeval?). Despite favourable reviews from American TV critics, if it's not a gameshow format ITV are not interested in pushing it. Why the British audience should pay the price for their indifference is beyond me - if this show was taken up by a major US network it would undoubtedly be a hit. I can only hope Sky, Channel 5 or some other channel picks it up. Please, don't let Primeval become extinct!
