Digital Spy interviewed Primeval star Ben Miller who provided more details about Sid’s character on the series:
Miller also revealed details about the upcoming fourth series, explaining that new character Philip Burton (Alexander Siddig) would be “a thorn in Lester’s side”.
“It’s horrible for Lester because before there was a fairly obvious hierarchy,” he admitted. “He reported to a minister and everybody else reported to him, but now he has this slightly shadowy billionaire character to report to.”
He continued: “Philip’s agenda is very much to do with the anomalies and scientifically exploiting them. He’s not really about protecting the public or worrying about what to do with all these creatures.”
Primeval premieres New Year’s Day on ITV1 and BBC America.
