I have been looking forward to Primeval series 3 since the end of series 2. When my brother asked me 'Doctor Who or Primeval?' it was a huge dilemma for me. Could I pick the Doctor over Nick Cutter? Would I rather experience time and relative dimensions or go hopping through anomolies?
And this year I've been keeping all my Saturdays free in the hope that the first ep would be aired - only to find that it was to be shown on the one date I was out for something I couldn't miss, wouldn't be getting an ITV1 repeat (I don't have ITV2) and hate with a passion ITV Catchup/Silverlight. But anyway, as soon as I got home (at about 11-something) I went onto ITV Catchup to watch immediately and, guess what, it wasn't up yet.
YOU NEVER HAVE TO DEAL WITH THIS ON iPLAYER.
So I watched something on iPlayer (Being Human Unearthed) and then went to sleep. When I woke up today the first thing I did was go online to see if it was there (it was), install Silverlight (argh) and watch it.
Here are some of my thoughts on the first episode.
