Beetles and mini-saurs creeping about in the dark are all very well, but what kids really want is a dirty great T rex galumphing down the high street, overturning cars and suchlike. And the penultimate
of the series duly obliges.
It’s just one of the crises running the ARC team ragged as anomalies open up all over the world, spilling pre-historic and future creatures into the present day. It’s a going-for-broke episode that’s mad as a flapping pterodactyl, but wins the day with bold visuals and widescreen ambition. Best bit? Ben Miller as the laconic Lester taking issue with a beastie bouncing on his Jag: “Oi! Have you any idea how much that thing cost?”
As the exhausted team members at ARC let Lester in on the secrets of Matt's mission, they are interrupted by news that anomalies are opening everywhere and there are reports of a T-rex loose on the streets. Matt knows he must get to Philip's machine and switch it off before it can create further havoc, but when Philip escapes Connor's custody, the clock is ticking to stop him before it's too late.
