And Nikita's dad.

Ahh, I didn't know that.

That's like Darren McGavin playing Frank Black's dad.

(though were the Nikita writer/producers thinking of him as the Equalizer or as Callan - although the Equalizer could be seen as a sequel to Callan?)

This was just in season 5. From what I remember of the commentaries, they did talk about Callan.

For the person who created Section 1 in the first place, they got Siân Phillips because of I, Claudius...

And the B5 spinoff.

He was one of my favourite actors in my teens.

I shall miss his voice. It made me go all tingly.

I really liked him in The Equalizer.
