Actually, the marine reptiles WAS a Jurassic Period episode. Actually, the
number of episodes actually reflects the relative length of time of the
different periods of the Age of Dinosaurs: 1 for the Late Triassic, 2 for
the Jurassic, 3 for the Cretaceous.
As for the choice of the focus on marine reptiles in the 3rd episode: well,
it IS a BBC production, and the production team wanted to focus on Mesozic
England for at least one episode. England may not have much in the way of
non-avian dinosaurs (outside the Wealden, which was covered in episode 4),
but it has buttloads of marine reptiles!!
