Passengers on the London Underground weren't just desperately trying not to catch each other's eye, this morning. They were also stubbornly pretending there wasn't a giant mechanical dinosaur on board.

The T-Rex was unleashed at Charing Cross Station to mark the launch of Primeval: New World tonight (Tuesday 8 January) at 9pm on Watch.

One commuter said: “I couldn’t believe it when I walked onto the platform and saw the giant T-Rex stomping up and down. I had to do a double take! It definitely made my morning commute more interesting.”

Primeval: New World follows a specialised team of animal experts and scientists who discover dinosaurs and other dangerous predators emerging onto the streets of modern-day Vancouver through strange anomalies in time. The US spin-off features 16 land, sea, sky and sand creatures across the 13 one-hour episodes. The series stars Niall Matter (Eureka, Stargate Atlantis) and Sara Canning (Vampire Diaries, Smallville). Andrew Lee Potts also guest stars in the first episode as Connor Temple from the original UK series.
