Earlier drafts of the script differed greatly from the final cut in several aspects. The character of Kate was originally named Alexis, most of the flashbacks occurred in Shanghai China instead of Ireland. Methos and Duncan were living in Paris rather than London as they did in the end of the TV series. Hugh Fitzcairn and May Ling Shen were to appear in the Shanghai flashbacks. See more »
Kate/Faiths apartment is in the National History Museum in London. This is where Duncan and Jacob start their final battle. There is an obvious US Skyline in the final moments of the battle. See more »
Very impressive back & forth reworking of the story of the Macleods
Very cleverly scripted, flashing back and forth and, amazingly, providing even more backstory to Connor & Duncan (seen together for the first time!) Emotive, evocatively directed and scored with great action and character counterpoints to die for!
