Primeval: New World Cast

A DC3 cargo plane comes into land at an airstrip, only to fly into a newly-opened anomaly. At Cross Photonics, Toby detects the portal and immediately contacts Evan; he collects Dylan and then rendezvous with Mac at the airport, becoming angry when he sees that Mac has also brought his date, co-worker Samantha. Hacking into the airfield’s CCTV system, the team view the footage of the plane disappearing into the anomaly. Leaving Mac and Sam on guard, Evan and Dylan step through the portal and quickly locate the plane; however, whilst its pilot, Jim, and co-pilot, Pulari, have survived their journey into prehistory, the plane has suffered damage to its wheels and flight systems. While Dylan and Pulari start work on the plane’s internal wiring, Jim and Evan fix the wheel strut – but then a swarm of carnivorous beetles scuttles out of a nearby nest, killing the pilot, before going after Evan. As the bugs close in Dylan uses a flare gun to start a fire, holding off the creatures long enough for Evan to get inside the plane. Back at the airfield, Mac and Sam watch as the nest’s eight-foot long queen emerges from the anomaly; their bullets have no effect on the creature’s armored carapace, and it sets off towards the airfield’s building to find a living host for its eggs. Meanwhile, Evan, Dylan and Pulari manage to get the plane working again – only to discover that the damaged fuel tank is now empty; with the beetles eating their way through the plane’s window seals, the trio need to find another way to reach the anomaly, and fast…
