Mutated Predator

Future Predators (often referred to as Predators) were an extremely deadly predatory species from the future, which were encountered by the UK Anomaly research team several times.


The origins of the Future Predator species appeared to vary as history changed. Originally, when Nick and Helen Cutter first encountered the Future Predators, the team speculated that the Predator was a highly-successful future evolution of a bat. This was deduced on an analysis of a blood sample containing DNA from a Lion and a predator; which the lab thought the latter was "scrambled bat DNA". (Episode 1.6) The Future Predators captured from the future by Helen and Oliver Leek's organisation were identical to the first Predators encountered and were somehow fitted with neural control clamps. (Episode 2.6, 2.7)

Helen later travelled into a future world where humanity was apparently extinct and the leftover ruins of mankind's cities were inhabited by the Future Predators and Megopterans. (Episode 3.1, Series 3) Helen initially claimed that the Anomaly Research Centre's work would lead to Future Predators being created in an act sanctioned by Nick Cutter; then after killing Nick failed to change the future, (Episode 3.3) Helen blamed Christine Johnson (Episode 3.9) (who was having Predators taken from the future and experimented on in hopes that they could be weaponised), (Episode 3.4) but Johnson's death didn't change the future either. (Episode 3.9, 3.10) The true origins of these Predators were never revealed but they appeared to be slower than the other Predators.

In a different future; in which the Earth was sterile and dying due to New Dawn's effects on the planet's atmosphere, the Mutated Future Predators were among the surviving life that evolved in the future to adapt to the hostile environment; according to Matt Anderson, they were the only creatures able to survive against toxic wind storms and other inhospitable conditions out in the wastelands on the planet's surface. After this future timeline was negated, it is unknown whether the Future Predators still existed in the new version of the future or were erased from the timeline altogether. (Episode 5.6).
