Despite some people continuously saying that there will be Primeval Series 6 soon, in reality it has NOT been confirmed. Quite the contrary, people involved have clearly said it’s not likely to happen. Things can change but this is the current situation. Of course we all hope it would happen but posting false news doesn’t help.
There have been some speculations about how long our Primeval cast will be playing in One Man, Two Guvnors. The show was originally supposed to end in autumn but was extended to next year. I asked the production team and can now confirm that Hannah Spearritt will leave the show in September. Meanwhile Ben Mansfield will continue until January 13th. If you want to see them both on stage, book your tickets now.
Now that ITV has aired all five series of Primeval, which one do you love the most? I know, it’s a difficult choice… I can’t decide between the first and third. Then again, the second had a great storyline. I also loved the school episode so much in the fourth series and the final one is just epic…
Is this the end or will we see how the story continues? The final episode of Series 6 airs tonight on ITV at 5:25pm. Don’t forget to watch even if you’ve seen it, it’s epic.
Faced with the increasing dangers of Philip’s machine, the team are pitted against their darkest challenge yet as Matt’s prediction appear to start coming true. As they fight to save Connor’s life, the ARC is also put under threat by the onslaught of an army of future predators. As the situation worsens, the stakes are high and lives are lost as the dangerous world of anomalies comes to its climax.
After the Series finale it’s good to go back to basics with Watch: Series 1 starts on Monday at 11am with and continues with new episodes during the week from Monday to Friday. Thanks to the Arcadians for the info!
The last (ever?) Primeval episode airs on ITV on Saturday at 5:25pm. ITV has been playing with the starting times a lot so remember to get ready 5 minutes earlier than during the last few weeks. Here’s a quote to get you going:
Lester: Now I’ve seen it all, mobile phone reception when you really need it.
Jess: What if they failed? This is the beginning of the end. Just like Matt said. What if they’re all dead?
Lester: They’re not dead Jess and it’s not the end of the world. If it was, someone would have sent us a memo.
Here’s Ben Miller talking about his character Lester and how much he loves playing him:
It seems that Lester always has to lock horns with someone. Does he ever pine for a quiet life?
“Yes, it does seem that way! I think away from it all, Lester does have a quiet life. I imagine in his home life, his wife completely runs the show. I often ask myself how a man like that takes time off, and I come to the conclusion he gets bossed around at home. Either that or he’s got some very spoilt children that make his life an absolute misery.”
Did you always want to get into family drama and adventure?
“It’s not really genres that get me going, it’s the characters. It’s so much fun playing a character like Lester; someone who just sneers at everything that takes place. Someone who thinks that dinosaurs are an administrative inconvenience and the people who run the ARC are mental, have-a-go-heroes. He’s so brilliantly flawed, it just makes him so fun to play. He’s a man with extraordinary self-belief, but the thing is he’s actually quite sweet underneath it all.
“He does care about the team, but he just can’t bring himself to show it. There’s a sort of contradiction at the centre of him, and those sorts of characters are always interesting. The other thing that’s fun about Primeval is that it’s such a huge show. It’s a really huge thing. The effects they do… it’s just like doing a movie. It’s a very creative environment, with a large group of actors that I have got to know.”
Because of the lovely news we just got (see the post below), I thought I’d add some exclusive Becker pictures courtesy of Impossible Pictures. Two of them we’ve seen before in a smaller size, the third one is compleletely new. Enjoy!
