Yeah, this is an aspect of Jack's character that I'd like to see
explored further. I'd love to know more about these "time agents".
Tho' there is something really familiar about the phrase "time agent"
--was there another British SF show with time agents? a novel, maybe?
Sapphire and Steel were meant to investigate disturbances in time, but I
don't think they were ever referred to as "time agents" (and neither
character was really meant to be human either from what I picked up).
