Trivia
bulletMethos - in his Watcher guise as Adam Pierson - presents an ancient journal to the Watcher Tribunal purporting to be written by a Watcher who befriended him
bulletGraham McTavish has a decent British TV CV, including a recurring role in Casualty. He's also enjoyed minor roles in movies, including King Arthur, Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life and Ali G: Indahouse.

An excellent premise - that Joe is finally brought to book for his actions supporting Duncan - is let down by the over-reliance on flashbacks to earlier episodes. For many people this was the final episode of season four, and it could have put them off returning the following year. B
