Trivia
bulletDuncan's absence is explained by the fact that he is in London attending a concert featuring fellow Immortal Claudia Jardine (D11, 'Timeless').
bulletAccording to official Watcher history, the Watchers were created around 2,000BC when Ammaletu the Akkadian saw Gilgamesh come back to life. This also explains why Gilgamesh had recuperative powers.
bulletBenedick Blythe played Count Otto Von Munchweiller in an episode of The New Statesman, opposite Rik Mayall.

Verdict
After an unpromising start, this Methos/Joe vehicle picks up pace and rattles on to a barn-storming finish. So why didn't Methos get his own series, then? B+
