It’s the final episode of ‘Primeval’ tonight, ITV’s ever-improving fantasy-drama series. Having taken the courageous decision to kill off the main lead character, Professor Nick Cutter (played by Douglas Henshall) earlier in the season, and darken the story-lines, episodes have gone from strength to strength. It’s becoming a real competitor to the traditional BBC Doctor Who timeslot and it’ll be interesting to see them go head-to-head (if Primeval is renewed) when Doctor Who re-appears in the schedules in 2010.
Since this series moved away from the monster-of-the-week storylines in favour of a longer story arc, the episodes have been far more riveting – and tonight’s was no exception. The sight of the first humans drinking from the river was quite moving (and the fx were excellent!) and the tension was maintained throughout. The only disappointment was the rather low quality fx for the future Earth scenes and the convenient way the chief villain was disposed of towards the end.
The episode finished on a cliff-hanger (as they all do these days) and it’ll be interesting to see if Primeval is re-commissioned.
I hope so!!!
I got into blogging quite late in life, not publishing my first post until 2004 – well into my 40s! My lifelong love of technology and communication (in all its forms), together with a fondness for the art of writing seemed to be the perfect combination to contribute a few words to the online community. But I’m no Samuel Pepys! If you’re looking for deep and meaningful comments on a variety of subjects, then you’ve arrived at the wrong site! I only pen for pleasure! On average, my posts appear about twice per month, covering family & friends, cinema visits, eating out, holiday experiences and techy stuff. Oh, and as this is my hobby, there are no sponsored links nor adverts here – it’s all done with love!
I hope you find it enjoyable, interesting and occasionally, even helpful!
