The Best SF Cliffhangers 3

Season One, Episode Six

Nobody expected anything quite like this from Primeval. It seemed to have settled into monster-of-the-week formula, but suddenly, the end of season one cliffhanger proved that the writers were going to have some fun with the show’s time travel elements. It was all-change in the most surprising way. The story seemed over, the villain and the monsters dispatched, but instead of a happy, back-slappy didn’t we do well final scene, our hero, Cutter, realises there’s something wrong: "Where‘s Claudia?” None of his team seem to know what he’s on about. Who's Claudia? Slowly it dawns on Cutter – he's in an alternative time line. Great stuff. We never realised the show had it in it.
