Found Mission Impossible on Netflix and to my surpise as I watched the 1st season no James Phelps (Peter Graves). Rather there is this guy Daniel Briggs (Steven Hill). Now I was very young when Mission Impossible first came on but all my life James Phelps = Mission Impossible like Tom Baker = the Doctor on Doctor Who. Most likely for the same reason the number of years he did the show. Which bring up the question why did Steven Hill leave the show?
