Recap: Primeval S 1 E 4

The team lets an angry Helen slip through their fingers, but there's a bigger problem. Connor's geeky friends have stolen a dodo, thinking it's proof of a sinister government conspiracy. The dodo (which is actually carrying a virulent parasite) bites one of them and infects him. Now the team have to track him down before chaos breaks out.


  • Blatant Lies: Helen threatens that a pack of sabre-toothed cats will be come through the anomaly. This is just a trick to bring her there so she can get past them and escape.
  • Conspiracy Theorist: Tom and Duncan take this to ridiculous extremes
  • What Measure Is a Non-Cute?: Abby says the dodo's can't be blamed for dying off. Connor notes she never felt that way about the gorgonopsid.
