Queen of Swords background info

Return of Highlander... kinda. Peter Wingfield, Valentine Pelka, Anthony De Longis and David Abramovitz (Creative Consultant aka head writer on Highlander) are involved in a new series called Queen of Swords, which will be filming in Spain during spring and summer this year. According to Cinescape:

Queen of Swords takes place in Spanish California in 1817. Much like Zorro, the Queen of Swords is a masked protector and righter of wrongs who uses whip and sword to punish her enemies. Unlike Zorro, however, Queen has distinct mystical elements. In her normal identity of Tessa Alvarado, a young woman of wealth, she is advised by Marta, her governess, a middle-aged woman of gypsy blood who uses the Tarot to guide and advise her young charge.Tessa also receives messages via her dreams, sometimes conveyed to her by the spirit of her dead father.

Peter and Valentine Pelka have recurring roles in the series. Peter is playing Tessa's love interest, Dr. Robert Helm, and Valentine is the evil Colonel Montoya. The Paramount press kit describes Dr. Helm as:

... an English Doctor who trades his musket for a scalpel, vowing to save lives, not take them. He has little patience for Tessa, believing her to be a spoiled member of the nobility, and less for the Queen of Swords, despising the blades with which she deals justice, yet Helm keeps finding himself strangely attracted to the beautiful avenger in black.
