Cancelled Story ideaEdit

When series 8 was being planned out it was originally suggested that Episode 8.4 was to be completely set in the A.R.C and a pack of future Predators come through and more is leant about the 2nd Matt. However it was changed when it was decided that this would be to early in the season for something of this sort to happen and the story was changed and the script was rewriting for a later episode in the season Episode 8.10.


Lucien Hope makes a reappearance having last appeared in Episode 2.4 and along with every other child in the season has been kidnapped.
