[show]SPOILER: Orson Welles provided the voice of Robin Masters, whose face was never seen in the show. Producers eventually wanted Welles to be revealed as the face of Robin Masters too, but he died before the series ended its run. In season seven, Magnum began the theorizing that Higgins was Masters.
