TimePortal

The Time Portal.

The Time Portal was a bubble-like doorway in time and space that Nigel Marven used to save prehistoric creatures from extinction.

AttributesEdit

PropertiesEdit

The Time Portal was transparent and expelled a bright light when open. It was concave circular in shape and the core of the Portal rippled like water when anything passed through and sometimes showed a blurry image of the other side. Humans, animals and objects could travel through the time portal simply by passing through one side to the other; however gases and debris could not enter. (PP: T-Rex Returns, PP: Dinobirds) While the 'home' side of the Time Portal was fixed on the Observation pen in Prehistoric Park in the 21st Century, the exact location in time and space that the Portal lead to could be changed, with the least known amount of time being 10,000 years ago and the greatest amount of time being 300 million years. (PP: A Mammoth Undertaking, PP: The Bug House) It was unknown if the Time Portal could be calibrated to open in the future.

Time Portal sticksEdit

The Time Portal itself was activated by placing two silver sticks in the ground, aproximately 4 metres apart, and priming both of them by twisting the shaft upwards and counter-clockwise. Once the sticks were primed, several blue lights would turn on, on the sticks and the Portal could then be opened by using a remote control (which presumably could change the destination time and location).

Altering historyEdit

Any adventures Nigel had in the past and any creatures he removed from their time periods, did not have any apparent alterations/ramifications on the present day. This would indicate that the Time Portal did not have any paradoxical effects on the timeline, meaning anything Nigel did or took from the past, had already happened.

TriviaEdit

  • The time-travelling Anomalies in Series 1 of Primeval were similar in appearance and sounds with the Time Portal. Both Prehistoric Park and Primeval were made by Framestore/Impossible Pictures.
  • The Time Portal was originally supposed to be hooked up to a large machine, but the idea was scrapped before production.
