Interesting facts

+ Although this is officially episode A11, it was actually transmitted after 'Eyewitness' when first broadcast back in 1993.
+ John Hertzler is better known to Star Trek: Deep Space Nine fans as Martok, Chancellor of the Klingon Empire (among other roles on the same series). He also played a Klingon in a second-season episode of Enterprise, while other genre appearances have included Lois & Clark, Zorro, Quantum Leap and Charmed. He is sometimes credited as J G Hertzler.
+ Writer Brian Clemens is a veteran British writer best known for his work on The Avengers, The New Avengers and The Professionals. He has writing credits stretching back to 1956, and co-wrote the story for Highlander II: The Quickening with William Panzer.


An ultimately forgettable episode - in fact, the back story for Marcus as provided by the Watcher's Chronicles makes for a more interesting waste of your time. C-
