Trivia
bulletJulian Wadham is a recognisable face on British television, with a string of guest roles on major drama series to his name. He occasionally gets to play military types, but The Raven is his only genre credit to date. His IMDb entry is here.
bulletRochelle Redfield previously appeared in the sixth-season story, F6, 'Black Tower' as a different character. Although born in Dallas, she appears to be based in France, judging by her list of IMDb credits (see here), appearing in a French sitcom over a 14-year period from 1992-2006.
bulletAmanda gets the quickening, but she doesn't take Heller's head. You can probably guess who has that pleasure.

Verdict
Another uninteresting villain with no redeeming qualities, but Nick's relationship with Lauren is brilliantly played by both actors, and helps give the episode a sense of gravitas it probably doesn't really deserve. B-
