UNUSUAL SUSPECTS
It's 1929, and Hugh Fitzcairn is enjoying the life of a manor lord. He has good friends, a beautiful wife, trusted servants - until one of his nearest and dearest "murders" him. He calls in his old friend, Duncan MacLeod, to help him uncover his own murderer - before more bodies start piling up.

Trivia
bulletThis was the second of two episodes of Highlander to be set entirely as a flashback (the first was E16, 'The Stone of Scone').
bulletThe late Nicholas Clay, who sadly died recently, played Lancelot in the 1981 film Excalibur (opposite Nigel Terry, who played Piton in A19, 'Eye of the Beholder').

Verdict
You can always rely on later Fitzcairn episodes to lighten the mood, and boy did Highlander's sixth season need a lift. Not perfect, but good fun nevertheless.
B+
