Interesting facts

+ Nigel Terry is a seasoned British film actor. For me he's best remembered as Prince John in the Lion in Winter, and as King Arthur in Excalibur.

Verdict

I'm a big fan of Nigel Terry, and he makes a dangerous enemy for both Richie and Mac in this entertaining, fast-paced episode. B+
