MacLeod (Adrian Paul) comes up against Nicholas Ward (Jeremy Brudenell), an Immortal who conceals his murders by disguising them as popular hysterias. In the 1840's, Ward created a vampire myth in order to conceal the true motive behind his killing the owners of a business he wanted. Mac managed to prevent Ward from marrying (and murdering) the heiress, but Ward escaped. In the present, Mac teams up with Joe Dawson (Jim Byrnes) to discover what Ward is up to and protect the young woman he's set his sights on this time.
- The first and most successful of three TV series based on the "Highlander" movies ran for six seasons and was filmed almost entirely in Vancouver, Canada (which doubled as the United States) and Paris, France. - The series directly follows the feature film "Highlander" (1986), but according to the series, Duncan MacLeod (Adrian Paul, who also played MacLeod in "Highlander: Endgame" (2000)) is the younger clansman of Connor MacLeod (Christopher Lambert, who guest stars in the series pilot "The Gathering"). - Jim Byrnes, who plays Joe Dawson, also contributed many songs to the show's soundtrack. Some of these can frequently be heard as background music during scenes in Joe's bar. - Many of the episodes of the series have French actors with their voices redubbed by Vancouver-based voice actors Gary Chalk and Janyse Jaud.
