Behind the scenesEdit

Othell Yarwyck

Dennis McKeever also portrayed Othell Yarwyck in Season 1

The character Dennis McKeever portrayed was assumed to be Othell Yarwyck throughout Seasons 1, 2 and 3. However, Brian Fortune, who had portrayed Bowen Marsh in Season 1, reappears in Season 4 and is credited as Othell Yarwyck, implying that the character portrayed by McKeever in Seasons 2 and 3 was not Yarwyck but another officer of the Watch.
