How come I didn't know that there was going to be a new series? I thought that it had all been cancelled!
However - Saturday 1st January 2011 at 7:30pm on ITV1 - new series grin

Oooh - I thought it was cancelled as well - although it did leave characters stranded in the past.

ooh, goody - I thought they ran out f money and cancelled it. Love the hamminess - right proper family sofa entertainment!

Another one who thought they had cancelled the series. DS1 and DS2 are happy now! grin

Fans saved it and Watch TV agreed to help finance it.

The new series trailer looks pretty good grin

My DC will be thrilled. I have to admit, I quite like watching it with them too. smile

Is the feisty blonde bird from S Club Jailb8 still in it?

Fantastic, I have dts some Primeval goodies for Christmas as well as they adored the show. I knew it was coming back but not that soon - just early 2011.

I thought it had been cancelled too - all I can say is 'hurrah'!

Bring it on! grin

It was cancelled, but unusually for TV got a reprieve. Possibly because ITV have little else SF/fantasy/adventure-wise to combat "Doctor Who"/"Torchwood"/"Merlin" - and the BBC are starting "Outcasts" soon as well!

I have to say though Primeval did go down hill lots without Nick Cutter and the other sexy guy who got eaten by velociraptors (excuse spelling).

Katisha Wed 22-Dec-10 08:59:02

Yes they can't rely on that drippy bloke in the hat to keep the ahem whole family interested...(ie mums.)

Just a little reminder in case anyone is interested...........................
and part two is on tomorrow night! I do hope I'm not disappointed.

Watching it now! Am so pleased it's back on as DS loves it. Definitely not the same without Nick Cutter - he was gorgeous.

ilythia Sat 01-Jan-11 19:46:01

Yay! And becker is still in, that makes up for losing cutter...

IShallWearMidnight Sat 01-Jan-11 19:46:29

we stopped watching a couple of episodes into the last series (when they refused to explain then ending of the first series - wasn't the high tech Anomaly Centre from a different timeline?) bu apparetnyl it impoved. Did I miss much, nad is it worht gettign back into (and trying to track down the eposides we refused to watch missed? And is there any male totty?

IShallWearMidnight Sat 01-Jan-11 19:46:59

aplolgies for rubbish typing and lack of previwing btw

JoBettany Sat 01-Jan-11 19:59:20

Definitely Becker has potential. New guy looks a bit like a whiskery potato (IMO).

ilythia Sat 01-Jan-11 20:08:15

becker bit pouty but better than nothinggrin

Furball Sat 01-Jan-11 20:29:12

lol abby playing s club 7 music

JoBettany Sat 01-Jan-11 23:48:42

I am liking Becker's tight black t shirt.

Kept expecting abby to start dancing!

hattymattie Sun 02-Jan-11 08:40:58

Abby must've had a mascara in her handbag in the cretaceous! Connor seems to have improved over one year as caveman! We're keeping watching tonight!

2shoes Sun 02-Jan-11 09:58:42

who was Danny
I just can't remember who the hell he was

Katisha Sun 02-Jan-11 10:02:49

Oh yawn zzzzz more disfunctional team antics and possible fifth columnist etc etc.
Hope it gets less predictable.

JoBettany Sun 02-Jan-11 14:56:30

Was Danny not the one who joined after Nick Cutter left? He was a police officer and drove around on a motorbike, spent ages trying to get the 'gang' to take him seriously... I think he was only in the last series. I did not find him easy on the eye!

I do think it's vitally important that if TV is offering family entertainment that there is at least one hot guy to stop me falling asleep and ruining it for my DS.
