Interviewer:What New Monsters are in the Series?
Adrian:A group of future monsters similar to a spieces on earth probably what they evolved into but 100 times as fierce,100 times as strong,100 times as fast and 100 times bigger,i might have exaggerated a bit but you sort of now what i mean.
Interviewer:Any Production Notes?
Adrian:There will be five action packed episodes,this is because they are further than we have went before,we wouldn't have the money for more thats how action packed they are.There will be a 4 part conclusion which proves to be terrifying with everyone in danger as a massive invasion of the future begins...
Also,episode 1 is a bit of an invasion of the past which features a t-rex which we have planned to put in the series since the start as well as fictional past creatures which closely resemble unfictional past creatures.
