Lewis's character appears to make a prophetic comment to Martin Shaw's character when Kilner says to Larry, "Maybe we should work together again sometime - a good team". But plans for Brian's next series were already well under weigh when this was filmed.
"I actually did a three-minute test for the part of Gambit in The New Avengers, with Gabrielle Drake as the female lead. I don't think I missed the part by much - probably got a bronze medal."
