A  thought on the time difference. Why not make the FK part the flashback
and the Flashpoint (or whatever) the present time? It doesn't always have to
stay in the show's format.

I like that idea.  Even if you are one of the "they  (nearly) all  died"
purists, LaCroix could be in the present day Flashpoint part of the story
with the other FK characters in the flashback.

Flashpoint, for those of you who have never heard of it, is a Canadian
police drama that also airs in the US. It is a summer replacement series,
Friday nights on  CBS. CBS picked it up a few years ago during the Television
writers strike and it has enough of a following that it has come back each
summer for the last few years.  It is set in  Toronto (as Toronto!) and
focuses around the "Strategic Response Unit".  They are an elite  Metro
police unit that have dual training as both negotiators and as S.W.A.T.
The episodes almost always start  in the middle of the story, the
"flashpoint" where things will ultimately either go well or go badly. Then
it will slide back to an earlier time period where the story begins. My
favorite thing about Flashpoint is that it doesn't always have a happy ending.
Sometimes the SRU can bring things to a good conclusion, sometimes they have
to take the bad guys out.  It  keeps you on the edge of your seat.  One of
the things that strikes me as odd is that while  it is produced in Toronto
there are very rarely actors that I recognize from Forever Knight.  I  have
seen a few Due South alumni from time to time.  I would love to see Nigel on
this  show.  As LaCroix would be great but really any kind of evil genius
would be fun.

I wondered if anybody had written any crossover fiction yet because it just
seems like it would be a natural thing.  They are in the same city and work
for the  same police force. Granted there is the chronological lag but as
mentioned above, the FK part of the story  could be the flashback. Or we can
use our mental digital cameras and edit in more current technology elements.
(Hey if George Lucas can do it, so can we!)

Subject: The loft

Can someone remind me please of the addresses for the buildings used as the
loft and the first season precinct, the old bank building? I'm trying to
Google Earth-search them and GOogle itself isn't helping.
