Trivia
bulletNigel Terry is a seasoned British film actor. For me he's best remembered as Prince John in the original 1968 film of The Lion in Winter, and as King Arthur in Excalibur. He hails from Bristol (or 'Brisssle', as it's sometimes pronounced round here).

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+
