Trivia

bulletJeremy Brudenell previously appeared as Immortal Nicholas Ward in the second season story, B16, 'The Vampire'.
bulletMichael J Jackson makes the third of his four appearances as Sean Burns. Originally, the producers hoped to bring back a multitude of previously featured British-based Immortals for this episode, but the budget wouldn't allow it.

Another great Highlander comedy. Performances are top-notch throughout the entire cast, and the story romps along, shifting neatly between past and present. A-
