Two episodes of a TV series based on Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's 'The Lost World'. very loosely based - in fact pure hokum.

The plot isn't, really, just a succession of set piece dramas with dinosaurs, woman-on-woman squabbles and the occasional neck bite. I found it hard to convince myself that the whole thing hadn't been made up as they went along.

Despite the folk memories of the local tribesmen (who want to marry the women, etc), and and several equally plausible tales of why one of our lost heroes should start biting the others, the one explanation never considered is good old fashioned rabies. After a while, the one that sticks is the 'infection theory' - and the management is to 'poison' victims, to kill the infection. In their anxiety to promote their disease theory, the writers failed to notice a vampire being shot, turning to dust (as in Buffy).
