Interesting facts


+ Duncan's absence is explained by the fact that he is in London attending a concert by Claudia Jardine (D11, Timeless).
+ According to official Watcher history, the Watchers were created around 2,000BC when Ammaletu the Akkadian saw Gilgamesh come back to life. This also explains Gilgamesh's recuperative powers as making him Immortal.
+ Morgan Walker 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+
