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…

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).Read more ›
Can't wait for the 2nd part of this series to be show on tv later in the year.
Now the subject of a private/public sector partnership Lester seems in charge in name only due to the presence of millionaire scientist Philip Burton. Ben Miller makes the powerless Lester work as he undermines Philip contradicting his wishes or pressuring him to back down. A nice touch is that while he never shows it to their faces he does worry over the fate of those trapped in the anomalies. It's tempting to see the new people coming in as art reflecting life as new investors came in for this run.
New faces include Jess-a sensible idea to have someone co-ordinating those out in the field and the perky character is well cast in Ruth Kearney, and the mysterious Matt. Matt is an intriguing character. Sometimes a little overdone e.g. him meeting Anton Lesser's strange character who is congenitally incapable of speaking without being cryptic in most episodes but generally he works as an enigma and a good addition to the team, perfectly cast in Ciaran McMenanim.
Ben Mansfield shows he could have done more in series 3 by working with a more developed character here. He carries guilt over missing or dead team members, is out of his depth with Ruth's obvious attraction to him and enjoys a testosterone fuelled rivalry with Matt.
Hannah Spearritt and Andrew Lee-Potter are as good as ever but let down a little with some of the writing.Read more ›
