In case anyone has lost count, or was thrown in part by yesterday's second part to our third part of our part Morgan, part Wong week, this is day four.

Today we make a welcome return to the ouroborus and the Millennium, having drifted into some of M&W's other rather excellent circles. To take us on our ever circular trip, we welcome the return of our favourite-reviewer-in-a-mask, DiRT! Today, DiRT will be talking to us for ten on the exciting world that is Millennium, on an episode from season one that was touched by the penship of Morgan and Wong... Dead Letters!

So without further ado, let's do the flashy player thing, and press play! And watch out for the blooper! Nice come back DiRT! :)

A reminder that our competitions are open until Sunday. To win a copy of the X-Files Season 4 Boxset, or Space: Above and Beyond boxset, simply put your name and address on an email to - with "X-Files Competition" in the header for the X-Files competition, or "Space: Above and Beyond" in the header for the Space: Above and Beyond Competition (please send separate emails for both competition entries).

Please note, with humble apologies we've discovered we've been having a few problems with our emails for the first part of this week - if you've sent us a comment or competition issue entry on Monday-Wednesday night, could you PLEASE resend so we're sure all entries and comments have got to us for that period. Apologies again.

Finally, thank you to Steven Trotter for the base design that I used to flash up our Morgan and Wong week header. He's been using a similar one he created to promote the Morgan and Wong week on his Millennium Facebook Group. I think both looks great, don't you?

I loved this. Three reasons:

1. I'd never considered this episode retrospectively. I'd always seen Frank seeing James as himself from the past, which I think at the time, you're meant to; a man struggling to find the same place Frank is at, but as you say, retrospectively, it's clear it's Frank from the future. Fascinating.

2. The notion of Frank's position in the show - well put. Summed up simply by Carter: "Who cares?" Frank does.

3. The blooop! Very amusing.

Thank you DiRT!

I think I said "amazing" too much. My reviews need a drinking game.

To my shame, I hadn't realised Morgan & Wong wrote this episode and therefore had a hand in the story of "Millennium" from such an early stage.

Again, very interesting to revisit the themes and character inter-play from this episode and to muse upon what this says about how they envisaged the character of Frank Black.

Really looking forward to this weekend's podcast too.

Another stellar review DiRT. As James said earlier, I never considered the episode retrospectively either and watching your review makes me appreciate the episode that much more!
