Personal Trivia:

  • Peter Watts's Millennium Group Database login is the phrase: "My God, its full of stars". Our forum member Laurent advises that although the phrase "Oh my God! It's full of stars!" is first seen in Arthur C. Clarke's novel version of 2001, Kubrick didn't use it. So technically, as far as the movies are concerned, it's from 2010 in which it was heard.
  • Peter's wife is Barbara.
  • Peter's daughters are Chelsea, Erin, and Taylor.

    I was disappointed when Millenium was canceled. I thought it was a great show, especially in the first season. They tried to soften it a little in the second, but still I thought it was nice and dark... and moody

    I don't know what they intended at that time. I think they wanted to leave it open, but since the show was killed, I guess we can say that Peter was too... a little closure.
  • Peter Watts appeared in 39 episode/s of the Millennium television series.

Peter Watts's Millennium Character Profile

Millennium profile image.


Peter Watts left his position as Assistant Director of the FBI's Violent Crimes Task Force to join The Millennium Group, which promised him, like Frank, understanding in a chaotic world. He later became a senior member of the Group and Patron to Frank Black, assisting him on numerous Group assigned cases.

As the Marburg Virus spread across the Pacific Northwest, Frank challenged his colleague and friend to realize the controlling, manipulative nature of the Group. While trying to reach Lara Means, the Group abducted Peter and somehow restored his loyalty.

Peter then followed Frank to Quantico and worked toward damaging both Frank's credibility and his accusations against The Group. Ultimately, he accepted the truth of Frank's claims and to protect his family (wife: Barbara, daughters: Chelsea, Erin, and Taylor), tried to expose The Group by giving Frank a folder of sensitive information. His actions saved Frank and Jordan's lives... at the suspected cost of his own.
