• Hate to say it, but after watching this one I had to go on YouTube and watch Part 2, which has already aired on Space. It is absolutely amazing.

    • Glad to hear you enjoyed it. Did it tie up all loose-ends?

      • CountdownsAreAwesome

        It did tie up already existing loose ends but it also created some more.

        • Oh dear. Oh well, if it explains the Mac plot, I’ll be happy. I’ve already got an idea about that one.

          • That is pretty much explained, even if it is slightly confusing!

  • Another cracking review David! I’ve really enjoyed your reviews of this series, and you’ve persuaded me to buy the DVD, although I think I’ll wait a while before buying it or perhaps wait for my birthday in June. :D

    Also, I know this isn’t related to Primeval but I – and probably a lot of other DWTV members as well – was just wondering if you’re feeling okay now after your hamster’s death. :)

    • Thanks. Did you see the original series? If so, I’d highly recommend this.

      Thanks so much for asking. I was severely depressed for a while; it was my first ‘adult’ experience of loss, so I found it really hard, and the memory of haivng him put down and the last time I saw him kept coming back, which was quite a struggle. But to help me get over it I’ve got another Hamster as I was sobbing before every time I walked past his cage, so I think having another one has helped me to get over that. He’s a Syrian (unlike my last who was a Russian Dwarf). He’s called Barney and is really friendly and fun – I wasn’t planning on getting one but I was feeling really down and he was being picked on by the other Hamsters in the pet shop, so he’s pretty pleased to be out of there.

      Thanks for checking on me. I hear it’s anarchy over at DoctorWhoTV.

      • Yes, I have seen the original series and really enjoyed it (although Series 4 and 5 were quite weak). I can’t wait to check this out. It sounds very interesting, but the fact I do not have Sky (which, of course, means I don’t have Watch) has prevented me from viewing it. I’ve debated watching it online but have never got round to doing so.

          I wondered what happened while I was on holiday thanks for clarifying, it would be a shame if we lost the general discussion page due to it.

  • Great review David as always! I must get the box set of this when its out! How you feeling about your poor hamster? Was so sorry to hear about it. :( DWTV comments all now under moderation and the Whoniverse Discussion page is closed due to a lot of off topic comments.

    • Thanks.

      Thank you for your support. For the full explanation about that, I’ll refer you below to my reply to @IAmTheCommenter:disqus .

    I only looked at the score given that when I get round to it I want the episode to be a surprise. I find it a shame the series seems to be picking up in quality only to be cancelled, it seems Primeval is one of the worst treated shows in the history of television anyhow I finally finished series 2 and wow it was amazing. I just loved everything about it (with the exception of Hannah Spearritt as Abbey).

    Sorry to hear about your pet I was on holiday when you announced the news but I hope you are okay.

    • Glad you enjoyed it (what did you think of the finale?). You’re onto Series 3 now, so don’t read anything beforehand – that’s very important. And don’t worry about Abbey; she improves considerably in Series 4-5.

      Thanks – I was pretty devastated at first but I’m feeling better now.

      • Nova Doctor

        I found the final to be amazing, I really liked seeing the future predators return because I thought they were a great concept. I thought it was a great sequence seeing James take on the future predator. The death at the ending felt a little bit forced but I like the fact that Primeval isn’t afraid to kill of main characters like many shows do.

        I also loved the arc and think it was a great idea and I cant believe the twist with Jenny, even though she is on the cover of the series 2 DVD I didn’t notice her and it came as a massive surprise at the end of the first episode.

        • I’m glad you enjoyed it.

          Series 3 is my favourite series, and there are way more twists yet to come. I particularly enjoy the third and fifth episodes, but don’t read up on them!

    The next episode is sadly the last Primeval episode because unfortunately, I don’t think a network will be willing to pick this show up…which is a huge shame.
