Doc's voice is provided by Jim Byrnes, who played Joe Dawson on the TV series Highlander (1992). Doc is shown to be missing a leg from the knee down, a reference to Byrnes's real-life disability - Byrnes lost both his legs from the knee down when he was struck by a car in the 1970s, a disability which was written into the TV series, which established that Dawson lost his legs after stepping on a landmine in Vietnam. Byrnes also voices the bartender who serves MacLeod, another reference to the Dawson character, who owned a blues bar on the TV series.

An opening exposition text, which is traditional for Highlander films, was also added to the American version.
