So, last night I’m listing obvious names by Terry Nation (you know, Aridius, Desperus etc.) and it suddenly struck me. Malpha! The one that’s listed in the credits and does all the talking! Clearly the ‘Alpha Male’, or, as The Avengers would have it, the M Alpha (let us not forget that the first Emma Peel episode was broadcast exactly *one week* before Mission to the Unknown, so there was clearly something in the air).
