The wizards at Impossible Pictures who brought so many amazing creatures through the Anomaly in Primeval have set their hands and computers to the Sinbad legend. We’ve seen the first two episodes and can attest that the mythical beasts are of the highest caliber. Newcomer Elliot Knight stars as the errant sailor, and Naveen Andrews (Lost, The Buddha of Suburbia) is his nemesis, Lord Akbari, whose magical powers have a long reach. The constant wandering by Sinbad and his crew allows for some juicy guest appearances along the way from Sophie Okonedo (Oliver Twist ), Timothy Spall (A Room with a View  and Dougray Scott (My Week with Marilyn). SyFy has announced its plans to air Sinbad in April 2013, while in Canada the series is coming to the end of its first season on Space. Sinbad will be available on both DVD and Blu-ray.
