Ernst Daimler

Interesting facts

+ Anne's brief reconcilliation with Duncan ends with this episode, when her feelings of revenge towards Daimler unsettle her and convince her that a relationship with an Immortal won't work.
+ Roger Brett had previously appeared as a street vendor in the second-season episode 'Legacy'.
+ Andrew Woodall once played a Russian agent in the Nicholas Lyndhurst spy vehicle The Piglet Files.

Verdict

Another strong flashback sequence helps carry a less convincing modern-day tale. B
