Hey All

Just a quick note to say that I'm sorry for the lack of posts, news is a bit dry as it usually is after a series ends. Anyway, I'm going away tomorrow, so I won't be here for a few days, so if anything finds any news, feel free to post it on the cbox for others (and me!) to see. Cheers!

Episode 7 - Calculations and Final Series Ratings

According to my calculations using your votes from the poll, Episode 7 has managed a very positive 93.9%, which means it is your favourite episode of the series - joint with Episode 6. Weird that they got exactly the same percentage, eh? 0_o

This means the average for this series according to you, the viewers, was 88.8%, which is very good.

The Series leaderboard stands thus (posh words ennit):

Episode 6 & 7 - 93.9
Episode 2 - 91.9
Episode 4 - 87.8
Episode 3 - 87.5
Episode 1 - 86.8
Episode 5 - 80.4

The only surprises I find here is that Episode 2 is so high, and Episode 5 is so low. In my opinion Episode 2 was one of the worst, and Episode 5 was at least as good as Episode 1 and 2. But that is just my opinion.
Please post your thoughts below and vote on the new poll! We can compare the results!

Tim Haine's teases

Nabbed this one of digital spy:

Primeval co-creator Tim Haines has revealed details about the show's fifth series.

He told SFX that the show's next run will further explore the mysterious motives of millionaire scientist Phillip Burton (Alexander Siddig).

"At the end of [episode] seven, there is some serious stuff starting to happen with Connor and Phillip and that's sort of the cliffhanger over into the [fifth] series," he explained. "You realise there's a much bigger story beginning to brew [involving] the reason why Matt's there."

He continued: "Very much in the fifth series, we focus in on who's the baddy [and] who's going to be causing trouble, and that has an effect on our central characters."

Haines also confirmed that several monsters from the show's past will reappear in future episodes.

"There will be a return of the future predators at one point, in a slightly different guise," he said. "We got the biggest creature that we've ever had... and some old favourites like raptors [and] burrowing creatures."

The fifth series of Primeval will premiere on Watch this summer. ITV will also air the series at a later date.

By the way anyone heard the new GaGa song, is awesome!!!

Episode 7 - Ratings

Episode 7 managed an average of 3.6m, 15.4% of the ratings for that time slot. This isn't the highest or lowest this series has had, but is rounadabout average for the series, so perhaps we are looking at an axe after Series 5, although I hate to say it... ;/

Episode 7 - My Thoughts

Well, sadly it has just hit me that Primeval Series 4 has finished. It went by so quickly!! And now all I have to do is persuade my parents to get Sky, as Primeval returns on Watch in May. And according to the announcement following tonight's episode, Series 5 will be back 'later this year' on ITV, contrary to rumours circulating that it will in fact return in 2012.

Anyway, if you haven't watched Episode 7 yet (WHY NOT? (Forgive me people in other countries who do not have ITV)) here is my review. I thought it was a very good episode, but it didn't feel too finalelyy, or was that just me? I think it severely lacked Jess, she's usually on the line at all times, she wasn't this episode... ;/ I think Danny was used really well, and the episode really wet my appetite for Series 5! I would've also liked some explanation on how Connor's dating calculator works.

So Philip's evil! But what's he going to do? And what did he have to do with Helen Cutter? And Ethan WAS Danny's brother all along, which is what many did guess at, does't stop him being a pyschopath... Is Becker alright??? Matt is from the future, where they all have to live underground, but what happens to make that happen? And can it be avoided? And if it can, does that mean we lose Matt as time is changed? But isn't that a paradox? I ask too many questions!

According to some sources, Danny will be returning for a further 2 episodes in Series 5, but I am unsure at to whether Ethan, or should I say Patrick, will be returning. For now, we just have to wait until Series 5! Which will be coming to Watch in May, and to my computer screen via some internet site in May too...

Episode 6 - Calculations

Well before I go on about everything concerning Episode 7, I thought of doing just a little post to reveal how well Episode 6 did on the poll! Well according to my calculations Episode 6 scored a very positive 93.9%, which makes it the best episode of the series (currently excluding episode 7) according to you, the viewers! But how will Episode 7 rate? Be sure to vote on the poll!

1 Day

Tomorrow is the final of Primeval!! 7.30 on ITV this week Danny comes through an anomaly along with a Terror Bird, which keeps appearing in different places. What's going on with the anomalies? And what is this information that Danny knows? Meanwhile, Ethan is hiding in the shadows and Jess wears another pair of trendy shoes.

In other news, Laila Rouass, who played Sarah Page in Primeval, will be introduced to the cast on Tuesday February 15th if anyone's interested. There's an article here.

Can I just take a chance to thank anyone who's sent links for news articles on the cbox. And I'd also like to thank the site FarFarAway, where I have got most of the pictures from Series 4 from. I'd also like to think Digital Spy, who has had just the odd article on Primeval that I've nabbed from there. Thank you!

Also, make sure you vote on the poll, I'd love to see 50 votes! We've had 45, so make sure you vote if you haven't already. Episode 6 looks like its going to beat the past episodes, but will Episode 7 be better? We'll have to watch and see...

2 Days!!

Who else is majorly excited for the final of Primeval? You aren't? Why the hell are you on a Primeval Blog? Blogwalking? It's like Anomaly walking... like what Emily does... You don't know what an anomaly is? Hop along to another blog then!!

Anywaysss, according to the Radio Times Primeval will be back on our screens in April, butt I hasss a second article unconfirm it, well actually the radio times could mean that Watch starts repeating Series 4 in April... Anyway, here's the article! Thanks for the link Shelly! Link here:

The fifth series of Primeval will start airing on pay TV channel Watch in May, UKTV have today confirmed to CultBox.

The final episode of Series 4 airs at 7.30pm this Saturday on ITV1.

Watch will then precede Series 5 by repeating Series 4's episodes weekly from April. UKTV told us: "At the moment the plan is to have a break of one week between the two series".

Series 4 and Series 5 of Primeval were shot as one block of 13 episodes, following a deal between ITV and UKTV with producers Impossible Pictures. BBC America and Germany’s Pro7 were also co-production partners for the episodes.

Series 5 is expected to air on ITV1 in early 2012.
