Quote of the day
Becker: Here, you need to drink this. That’s an order.
Jess: You’re mean, you know that?
Becker: Yes, I do know that, I’m very mean. Now, drink this.
Jess: I hate you.
Becker: No, you don’t.
Jess: I’m sorry. You’re nice, really. You’ve got lovely hair. Can I touch your hair?
It’s Primeval day today as the favourite episode of all Jesker fans airs tonight on ITV at 5.30pm. Notice the earlier starting time. Remember to watch and tweet #Primeval.
Philip and Connor secretly open an anomaly within the ARC, only to be invaded by a mass of scurrying future-beetles, who force the ARC into lockdown. The team have just moments to save the day before the ARC and the beetle threat is destroyed when Philip threatens to incinerate the building.
I just managed to find this newish photoshoot in high quality with no tags (except my own). It’s one of my favourite shoots ever and I hope you enjoy it too. Feel free to share but please credit me if you use the pictures.
Here’s Hannah analysing Abby and Primeval 5 back in 2011:
What does Series 5 hold for Abby?
“Her relationship with Connor gets a little… tricksy. All Connor and Abby have ever done is be honest with each other, but in this series they’re both burdened by secrets. Both of them always try to do the right things but their worlds start to get further and further apart.”
How has the relationship gone the other way so quickly?
“In one of the episodes in Series 5 Abby is let in on a secret, almost by default really because she catches Matt going into Connor’s computer. So there are secrets going on. It definitely gets heavy.”
Tell us about Abby’s relationship with Matt…
“At first she doesn’t really know what their relationship is, but as things go on she realises that Matt knows everything about her. But he never gives too much away to people and Abby is a bit wary of how closed off he is. They do make a real connection because of his love for Emily, and Abby sees this and it endears him to her.
“Trust plays a massive role in their relationship. She becomes aware of why Matt is here and that puts her in a really difficult position. And then it gets interesting – the seeds of doubt are planted in her mind for the first time about the man she loves.”
It’s Primeval day today and episode three starts at the normal time 6pm on ITV. As usual, check back for screen captures, ratings and reviews. And while watching, don’t forget to tweet #Primeval and trend our favourite show.
Following a displaced raptor through an anomaly, Matt ends up in Victorian London. Realising its to blame for several gruesome murders in the area, he tracks it down only to find Emily attempting to do exactly the same thing. Despite attempts from an angry mob and her own husband, Emily and Matt are forced through the anomaly with an angry raptor, where Emily is forced to make a tough decision about her future.
Here’s an old interview of Ben Mansfield talking about Primeval Series 5.
How does it feel to be back for Series 5 of Primeval?
“It’s been the same old hands, the same old crew and same old cast, so it was really good to get back into it. We all had a short break, and we were really excited to be back. The things is, we shot a lot of the scenes out of sequence so sometimes it was a bit confusing! But it was brilliant and the crew over in Ireland were amazing.
“It was actually really great filming in Dublin, and I tried to take advantage of living in such a beautiful city. I travelled around a bit – I went walking in the Wicklow Mountains and I went over to the west coast too. Lots of hiking and horse riding. I also got a taste for Guinness… I hope it doesn’t show! Ciarán and myself became avid fans of The Cream.”
Living and working in the same city for a while must make for a great atmosphere on set…
“Yeah, it really does. It was great meeting the new cast members and socialising with them. A couple of the guys are from Dublin originally, so they were great about showing us around the city, but I do like to go exploring myself. The good thing about Dublin is that there’s almost an iconic pub on every corner!”
Primeval writer Steve Bailie shared some interesting facts about Saturday’s episode on Twitter. Thanks to the Arcadians for the tip! Also, you may have noticed that we’ve added official Twitter accounts of the cast on the sidebar (see box 007).

As has been posted earlier, KCET in California is going to start broadcasting Primeval and they’re airing a special preview tomorrow. The first episode will be shown on Wednesday. Here’s their guide for new Primeval fans:
What You Need to Know About ‘Primeval’
When is KCET airing it?
We’re airing a special preview this Sunday, June 24, from 9 p.m. to 11 p.m. It’s the first two installments of the show. Then, starting next Wednesday, June 27, we’ll start airing the show in its 8 p.m. timeslot, beginning with episode one and moving through the series from there.
So it’s about dinosaurs?
Yes. “Primeval” is a British sci-fi series about prehistoric animals. Every episode features a dinosaur or some other prehistoric animal. They’re created with computer-generated graphics as directed by Tom Haines, one of the creators of the popular BBC documentary series “Walking With Dinosaurs,” so these beasts look amazing.
So these are actual prehistoric animals being featured on the show? Not just fictional ones that some TV writer made up?
Yes, that’s one of the coolest parts of the show. Each week, you’ll be introduced to weird creatures that, for the most part, actually did once walk the earth, swim the sea or fly through the sky. (There are a few exceptions, BTW. We’ll make a note of them.) And it’s not just obvious prehistoric creatures like Tyrannosaurus Rex and Pterodactyls: These are WEIRD creatures that you probably did not learn about in your childhood dinosaur books. Episode one, for example, features a Gorgonopsid. For our part here at KCET, we’ll be writing up little posts on the various creatures you’ll be seeing, giving just a bit more info on this prehistoric weirdos. (Click here to read up on the Gorgonopsid).
