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.

1929, Fitzcairn Manor, North Tidworth, England: The events of the entire episode, as it happens.
+ This is only the second ever episode of Highlander to be set entirely as a flashback (the
first was The Stone of Scone, E16).
+ The late Nicholas Clay, who sadly died recently, played Lancelot in the 1981 film Excalibur (opposite
Nigel Terry, who played Piton in 'Eye of the Beholder', no less).
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+
