Primeval is a British science fiction television series created by Adrian Hodges and Tim Haines and produced for ITV by Impossible Pictures which follows a team of five scientists tasked with investigating the appearance of temporal anomalies across Great Britain and containing prehistoric and futuristic creatures which enter the present.

The series originally aired in the UK on ITV from 10 February, 2007 to 6 June, 2009. It was officially cancelled by ITV in June 2009 but a deal was struck between ITV, Watch, Impossible Pictures, German broadcaster Pro7 and BBC Worldwide to produce two new seasons of the show for transmission in 2011.

Primeval premiered in South Africa on DStv's BBC Entertainment channel on Tuesday 14 October 2008, at 20h30. See "Seasons" below for seasonal broadcast dates and times.

Season 3 premiered on BBC Entertainment on Monday 15 November 2010, at 21h40. Thereafter new episodes broadcast every Monday at 21h20. There are 10 episodes in the third season.

Season 3

Primeval roars back onto the screens for a third season and the action continues to evolve with more new faces joining the team.

Still reeling from Stephen's death, and with the depth of Helen's betrayal now revealed, Nick Cutter must fight to re-focus his embattled team in order to continue the work they started.

But as the anomalies continue to present an unrelenting series of threats, the task at hand seems almost insurmountable.

With events getting even wilder, creatures steeped in ancient folklore begin to appear, and it becomes clear that the origins of myths and legends are linked with the mysterious anomalies.

From a Pristichampus, a creature which bears a striking resemblance to the ancient Egyptian crocodile demon Ammut, to a Dracorex being hunted by a deranged Knight who is convinced it's a dragon he must slay, it seems there's no limit to the dangers spilling through the anomalies.

But it's not just the creatures the team has to contend with...

The cloak of secrecy behind which they have been working is beginning to slip - as deadlier creatures continue to rampage through the anomalies, questions are being asked as the conspiracy spreads its net ever wider.

Primeval was created by Adrian Hodges (screenwriter of the film Tom & Viv) and Tim Haines (writer/director of Walking with Dinosaurs).
