Trivia
bulletAndrew Divoff previously appeared as the mortal Bryan Slade in A6, 'Bad Day in Building A'.
bulletAccording to notes made by the Watchers, Larca hails from 15th Century Portugal, was a lawyer, then a pirate by 1510 and finally disappeared in Peru in 1526.
bulletJoe also reveals many other interesting things about the Watchers, including the fact that Duncan was 'watched' by a man named Rodney Fergus, who fought alongside him at Waterloo and later sailed to the New World with him.
bulletCarl Robinson (from B9, 'Run for Your Life' and E3, 'Manhunt') becomes Derek's teacher at the end of the episode.

Verdict
One of my all-time favourite episodes, this is the perfect tale of what happens when an Immortal abuses his power. Joe's insights into the Watchers are also fascinating. A
