Trivia
bulletRichard Lynch has one of those faces that is instantly recognisable. Star Trek fans will remember him from the Next Generation two-parter 'Gambit', while he signed up to play Count Iblis in Richard Hatch's ill-fated Battlestar Galactica revival (series creator Glenn A Larson's version was eventually filmed as a TV mini-series, instead). His official fan club site is here.
bulletThe 1975 flashback is only one of three times that Duncan is shown in a flashback post-1958. The other two years are 1978 (E14, 'Ransom of Richard Redstone') and 1980 (A14, 'Band of Brothers').

Verdict
Another excellent and thought-provoking story. Things plod a little in the present day, but the flashbacks are excellent and fast-paced.
B+
