Primeval: New World Cast

Alerted by the Anomaly Detector, the Special Projects Team race to the Olympic Village, where a Pachycephalosaurus is menacing the shoppers. While Mac and Dylan subdue the frightened herbivore with tranquiliser guns, Evan tracks the portal to a locked building, only to be stopped by a police patrol. However, before he can be arrested Evan is saved by the timely arrival of Lieutenant Ken Leeds and some soldiers: it seems that Project Magnet is operational once more. Joining Dylan and Mac, Evan examines the sedated dinosaur – which promptly pukes in his face. Leaving Mac to stay to help Leeds with the task of taking the Pachycephalosaurus back through the anomaly, Evan returns to Cross Photonics to get cleaned up. However, when he leaves the showers, Evan finds himself face-to-face with an enraged Albertosaurus – the exact same one that killed his wife years ago. Evan immediately triggers an evacuation alarm, and then, once all his regular staff have left the building, he instigates a lock-down. Returning to the Tank, Evan briefs Toby, Ange and Dylan about the dinosaur at large in the facility; but Toby is confused: there is no sign of the monster on any of her surveillance systems. Leaving Toby and Ange safely in the Tank, Evan takes Dylan in search of the creature; after explaining the events that led to his wife’s death, he then shows her the Cold Room – but the Anomaly inside has vanished, and there are no signs of an incursion. When Evan sees the Albertosaurus again, Dylan sees nothing – and when Dylan tries to help Evan, he sees her as the creature, and tries to shoot her. Realising that the Pachycephalosaurus slime contained an hallucinogenic that is causing Evan to relive his past, Dylan warns Toby and Ange; knowing that they have to subdue their friend and get him to a doctor, they try to make Evan see reason, but he becomes even more unstable, hatching a plan to blow up the facility in order to kill the rogue dinosaur. Mac arrives on the scene and manages to calm his friend Mac by agreeing to help search for the Albertosaurus. Then Evan shows Mac the Cold Room, and the terrible truth behind the A.R.C. soldier hidden inside the cryogenic cabinet…
