One of the last 'M.F.U.' episodes made, 'The Deep Six Affair' went out
on Christmas Day 1967. Possibly mindful of the disaster that was 'The
Jingle Bells Affair' the previous season, it doesn't mention Christmas
at all. In London, Solo and British UNCLE agent 'Brian Morton' ( Peter
Bromilow ) are being held by THRUSH agent 'Comander Krohler' ( Alfred
Ryder ). A disguised Illya shows up with the ransom - plans to a new
experimental submarine - and promptly rescues his colleagues. That
would appear to be the end of the matter. But no. Brian announces his
resignation as he plans on marrying his fiancée 'Laura Adams' ( Diana
van der Vlis ). Mr.Waverly, who does not approve of his agents leaving
the organisation to get married, tries to dissuade him. Brian is
adamant. Laura is abducted by Krohler, and used to blackmail him into
helping THRUSH steal the submarine...
Written by Leonard Stadd - author of the same season's 'The Maze Affair' and the story of season 2's 'The Discotheque Affair' - this is a solid episode. Ryder appeared in villainous roles in other genre series such as 'The Invaders' and 'Mission: Impossible'. Donald Sinden-clone Peter Bromilow was 'Gerald Kafka' in 'The Avengers' caper 'Noon-Doomsday'.
Although Season 4 is often criticised for its perceived lack of humour, there are amusing moments to be found if you look hard enough. One comes just before the main titles when Solo beams with pride after learning he is regarded as the top UNCLE agent in America!
