The Break was something of a chiller that focused on psychiatrist Julian Burroughs (Gerald Sim) and his wife Jane (Mary Ure) who are celebrating their Silver Wedding with a dinner with their closest friend Gerald (Jack Hedley) but the night doesn’t go as planned and terror is soon on the menu in the form of Giles (Robert Shaw) and Crawford (Tony Selby).
 

At the time of filming Mary Ure and Robert Shaw were a real life married couple having met on set in 1963. It was a rare TV appearance for Shaw and he was given a prestigious TV Times cover for the week of broadcast in recognition of the fact. There was also a two page interview/feature inside.
