"I don't want to be a tree"- In the original ending, Craven turned into a tree, but after much argument, the filmed ending is more enigmatic. Either that, or he becomes a flower.

Troy Kennedy Martin - was also a writer on Z-Cars.

Martin Campbell - went on to direct GoldenEye.

Joanne Whalley - played Craven's daughter. She went on to marry Val Kilmer.

Eric Clapton and Michael Kamen supplied the music. They also worked on the Lethal Weapon franchise.

The Knights of St John - although the show can be read as a simple thriller, it operates at many levels. There are even hints at the conspiracy being the latest battle in a centuries-old struggle between two secret medieval societies. Bergerac it ain't.

Repeats, please - Edge of Darkness was so popular it was almost instantly repeated.
