STUDIES IN LIGHT
Fellow Immortal Greg Powers invites MacLeod to his photography showing. At the gallery, MacLeod is deeply disturbed by the violent images of his friend's work, but what becomes more disturbing than the fact that Greg's personality has been replaced by that of a hardened cynic. As he reviews Greg's work, he comes across a photograph taken of himself 50 years ago, which triggers a flashback of a time he spent with a young photographer called Linda Plager. In a chance meeting, Linda - now 73 years old - recognises Duncan as her old mentor and lover, which thoroughly convinces her nurse that she's senile.
