Trivia
bulletAnne's brief reconciliation with Duncan ends with this episode, when her feelings of revenge towards Daimler unsettle her and convince her that a relationship with an Immortal won't work. She does, however, return in the fourth season story D6, 'Reunion'.
bulletRoger Brett previously appeared as a street vendor in the second-season episode B19, 'Legacy'.
bulletJean-Claude Deret reprises his role as Georges from A15, 'For Tomorrow We Die'.
bulletAndrew Woodall once played a Russian agent in the Nicholas Lyndhurst comedy spy vehicle The Piglet Files. Like Alexis Daniel in the previous episode C18, 'Testimony', Woodall is better known as a theatre actor.

Verdict
Another strong flashback sequence helps carry a less convincing modern-day tale.
