Trivia
bulletAnthony Head has since gone on to bigger things (under the name 'Anthony Stewart Head') on Buffy The Vampire Slayer. This was after a brief stint on the first series of Jonathan Creek. He first broke into the UK public consciousness in a series of coffee commercials for Nescafé, and since returning to the UK has starred alongside Nigel Havers in Manchild, guested as the Prime Minister in comedy classic Little Britain and appeared in two plays simultaneously in London's West End. He lives just down the road from me, in Bath. Visit his official site here.
bulletPeter Guinness is an accomplished British TV actor, and can currently be seen on the BBC drama Red Cap. US viewers may recognise him as Johnny Depp's father in Sleepy Hollow. He also appeared in Christopher Columbus: The Discovery opposite two other guest stars from this first Highlander season: Nigel Terry and Georges Corraface.

Verdict
An effective - if somewhat plodding - morality play, where the resolution is a refreshingly satisfying one. B-
