Inspiration
I'm currently working my way through a rather cool book by the name of 'The Complete Mission:Impossible Dossier' by Patrick J White. It's a real comprehensive and apparently well researched book which is giving me great insights into the creation and inspiration of probably the best television series ever made.

In the book it state that '21 Beacon Street' was very much an inspiration for Mission, sharing writers, however it does comment that Mission creator Bruce Geller had not even seen this series.

It is described as being some sort of primordial mix of The A-Team and Mission. Where a private detective agency is hired by an employer to perform a task of intelligence and cunning which cannot be provided by official, governmental, forces.

Now I'm just adding this for a little information on the series, since no one had put anything about it. Plus maybe it'll poke a stick in the vaults and shove out a DVD of this old series, that is, if it still exists in any format.
