Overview

Synopsis

Although it remained a rotating component of The NBC Sunday Mystery Movie (along with Columbo, McCloud, Quincy, M.E., and Lanigan's Rabbi), McMillan and Wife underwent quite a few remarkable changes for its sixth and final season on the air. To begin with, the series' title has been shortened to McMillan, reflecting the departure of star Susan Saint James. It is explained that the actress' character, Sally McMillan, has been killed in a plane accident, leaving her husband, San Francisco police commissioner Stewart "Mac" McMillan, a widower. Evidently this tragedy had occurred quite some time before the beginning of season six, given that Mac is showing no signs of grief and has even begun seeing other women. Also missing is Nancy Walker as Mac's housekeeper Mildred; her replacement is Martha Raye, playing Mildred's sister Agatha. And while John Schuck is still on hand as Mac's police assistant Charles Enright, Charles has been promoted from sergeant to lieutenant, his customary duties taken over by Sgt. Steve Dimaggio, a new character played by Richard Gilliland. Likewise new to the series are Gloria Stroock as Mac's secretary Maggie, and Bill Quinn in the recurring role of Chief Paulsen. The first of the season's six 90-minute episodes is "All Bets Off," in which Mac tries to track down some diamonds stolen from his current girlfriend in Las Vegas. In "Dark Sunrise," Mac, presumed killed in an explosion, uses his "death" to cover his tracks while investigating the matter. "Phillip's Game" pits Mac against an egotistical hit man who brazenly announces his crimes before committing them. In "Coffee, Tea, or Cyanide?," Mac investigates as several passengers die mysteriously during a cross-country flight. "Affair of the Heart" finds Mac crossing swords with an attractive deputy DA (Stefanie Powers). And in the series' final episode, "Have You Heard About Vanessa?" Mac reconstructs the events leading up to the suicide of a model (Joanna Cameron) who seemed to have everything. ~ Hal Erickson
