    This was the most disappointing show on Ness I’ve seen in a long time. Caught it last year and he barely spent any time at Loch Ness, but was all about Greenland sharks…

    My thoughts exactly, springheeledjack. The normally excellent River Monsters show did itself no favours with the conclusion that Nessie is actually a Greenland shark! I believe the producers and scriptwriters have a lot to answer for. In the interests of getting another episode in the can, they chose to ignore many important points of this centuries old mystery.

    The Greenland shark theory just doesn’t match the over 3000 eyewitness sightings in Loch Ness. Like all sharks, it has a dorsal fin. Smaller than say a Great White, but still a dorsal fin. To my knowledge, no one has seen such a fin in the loch. Also, a shark doesn’t fit the relatively common ‘upturned boat’ description and the producers conveniently ignored all the sightings with reports of long necks.

    Jeremy Wade, please lift your game!

  3. silverity responds:

    Yes, it was good as far as it went. I doubt Jeremy believes it was a shark!

    Loch Ness documentaries are getting a bit stale. Same old faces and the Surgeon’s Photo hoax always gets trotted out.

    What could be done to make them more intersting?

  4. springheeledjack responds:

    If he would have just followed his usual pattern and spent his time at Ness, fishing and trying different approaches I would have been happy no matter what happened, but seriously I think less than a quarter of the show was spent in Ness.

    As for new shows…unless someone comes up with a way to take a new angle, I don’t know that we’re getting anywhere. It seems a handful of sightings trickle in, but that loch is long enough and deep enough that it’s about being in the right place at the right time…

    Shame on Jeremy.

    Of course there is no definitive proof, but my theory is plesiosaurs come and go from Loch Ness by way of vast underground river and cave systems that link up with the open ocean. This would explain why a breeding colony has never been found in the loch.

    I do believe plesiosaurs exist in the oceans of this planet. I have kept daily newspaper articles from the 80’s that state there have been “over 40 sightings of this supposedly extinct reptile off the coast of south-east Australia over the past few years”.

    Fishermen off Warrnambool have reported a 60 foot long creature keeping pace with their fishing boat while it was under full power. They said it had a long neck with a snake like head and two sets of flippers, each one being about 10 feet long. An incredible sighting! Australia wide, there have been over 400 reports up to the 80’s and no doubt a lot more since then. These include the Hawksbury river in New South Wales. There have also been many other sightings around the world.

    There is a lot of good eye witness evidence to support the survival of the plesiosaur in the deep oceans, so it is best to keep an open mind. An encounter by Captain McCamis a mile down in the famous Alvin deep sea submarine is well worth Googling. Now… if just ONE of these many sightings is true, we have some real, live plesiosaurs in the oceans… and that would no doubt shake the very foundations of science. Just hope some definitive proof emerges sooner rather than later!
