Primeval: New World May Need To Be Censored Before It Airs In The UK

A Canadian spinoff of the ITV and Watch show Primeval, airing on Space, may have hit a small bump.

The new series, Primeval New World has a new British cast member, Danny Rahim as weapons expert Mac Rendell, and the script has been written accordingly, with some British epithets to boot.

Such as “shite” and “buggered off”.

Which is all well and good for US and Canadian television. But probably unusable in pre-watershed Saturday afternoon British television, which is when the show has usually aired.

Did they do alternative takes? Will be get an audio dub with “awful” and “bugged” used instead?

“Sodding” should be okay these days. But even so…

Let’s find out. The show will air in the UK in early 2013.
