'''''Primeval''''' (2007-) is {{ITV}}'s answer to the revived ''Series/DoctorWho''[[note]]''Series/TheTomorrowPeople'' being their weapon against the classic ''Doctor Who'' series[[/note]], with less traveling through the cosmos, but more death (of recurring characters, anyway) and more underwear. Or, more accurately, {{ITV}}'s answer to the ''Series/DoctorWho'' spin-off ''Series/{{Torchwood}}''.

** The Jenny/Claudia arc from series 1 and 2 has gone this way as of series 3, mainly due to Douglas Henshall leaving the show.
** The whole thing with Sarah at the end of Series 3. The creators couldn't have filmed the scenes with Sarah dying ''BEFORE'' moving to Dublin, could they? No, it doesn't seem like they could... so, she dies off-screen (we see a little of her death in the first webisode; she's in a car, trapped, mauled by a Future Predator and cries "Becker! ''BECKER!''") in what was, apparently, her plan.

The show looked like it was exploring the conflict of a romance between them - where Cutter loves Claudia and not Jenny - but [[spoiler: Cutter dies and Jenny leaves the team, later showing back up to get married to someone else]].
** Sarah ends the Season 3 finale saying "I've got an idea." But when production moved from the UK to Ireland, actress Laila Rouass opted to stay to care for
her plan.young daughter. And so Sarah was abruptly McLeaned - with the only clue being a brief flashback to her screaming "Becker!" as a creature attacks her car.



** Nearly everything involving Cutter disappeared after his death.
** Danny Quinn chasing Patrick Quinn through the anomaly. Presumably, they both died.

* MisplacedWildlife
** In episode 4.1, a Spinosaurus is seen in the same forest as raptors and Pteranodons.
** Also, in [[Recap/PrimevalS1E5 episode 1.5]] a flock of Jurassic Anurognathus come out of the same anomaly as a Cretaceous Pteranodon (though they were apparently a new species evolved to feed on flesh rather than insects.
** Though really it's possible that these can be explained by the anomalies, something that is mentioned frequently throughout the series.



%% Just giving a name is not enough context, so TheCahrmer is a ZCE

Added DiffLines:

* MisplacedWildlife: The show has a convenient HandWave for this. Since anomalies pop up everywhere, any creatures in the wrong time could have wandered through one. More than a couple of episodes have dealt with a plot like this.

* HijackedByGanon: Invoked by Carter in season 2 when a "Cleaner" mook is killed while infiltrating the ARC. He states that it has to be Helen, and that it's always Helen.
*** [[JustifiedTrope To be fair]], Carter's got a point. A lot of the time, troubles can be traced back to Helen one way or another. Heck, she dings this trope ''again'' in series 5 by being the one who convinced Philip Burton that New Dawn was a good idea. She's hijacking the plot even after she was ''eaten by a raptor''.
