Charles Dance starred as genetic researcher Edward Forester, whose work leads him to create a man-gorilla hybrid, using his own sperm and cells taken from a female gorilla. He then raises the baby as his own son, only to find that there are horrifying consequences for playing God.
A portion of filming took place in and around the North Wiltshire area, with the Foresters family home scenes having been filmed on location in Calne. Woodland scenes from Episode 2 were primarily filmed on location at Savernake Forest near Marlborough, but were subsequently mixed with footage filmed on location in Switzerland. Longleat Safari Park was also used in filming as the setting for the kidnap scenes at the end of Episode 2.
2entertain Ltd released the serial on Region 2 DVD in the UK on 17 July 2006.
