The pilot episode, " Hot Snow ," aired on 7 January By , The Avengers was shown in more than 90 countries.
The Avengers was marked by different eras as co-stars came and went. The only constant was John Steed , played by Patrick Macnee. A stranger named John Steed, who was investigating the ring, appeared, and together they set out to avenge her death in the first two episodes.
Steed asked Keel to partner with him, as needed, to solve crimes. Hendry was considered the star of the new series, receiving top billing over Macnee, and Steed did not appear in two episodes.
As the first series of The Avengers progressed, Steed's importance increased, and he carried the final episode solo. While Steed and Keel used wit while discussing crimes and dangers, the series also depicted the interplay—and often tension—between Keel's idealism and Steed's professionalism.
As seen in one of the three surviving episodes from the first series, " The Frighteners ", Steed also had helpers among the population who provided information, similar to the " Baker Street Irregulars " of Sherlock Holmes.
The other regular in the first series was Carol Wilson Ingrid Hafner , the nurse and receptionist who replaced the slain Peggy.
Carol assisted Keel and Steed in cases, and in at least one episode " Girl on the Trapeze " was very much in the thick of the action, but without being part of Steed's inner circle.
Hafner had played opposite Hendry as a nurse in one episode of Police Surgeon. The series was shot on line videotape using a multicamera setup.
There was little provision for editing and virtually no location footage was shot although the very first shot of the first episode consisted of location footage.
As was standard practice at the time, videotapes of early episodes of The Avengers were reused. At present, only three complete Series 1 episodes are known to exist and are held in archives as mm film telerecordings : "Girl on the Trapeze" which does not feature Steed , "The Frighteners" and " Tunnel of Fear ".
Production of the first series was cut short by a strike. By the time production could begin on the second series, Hendry had quit to pursue a film career.
Macnee was promoted to star and Steed became the focus of the series, initially working with a rotation of three different partners.
Dr Martin King Jon Rollason , a thinly disguised rewriting of the Keel character, saw action in only three episodes, which were produced from scripts written for the first series.
King was intended to be a transitional character between Keel and Steed's two new female partners, but while the Dr. King episodes were shot first, they were shown out of production order in the middle of the season.
The character was thereafter quickly and quietly dropped. Nightclub singer Venus Smith Julie Stevens appeared in six episodes.
She was a complete "amateur", meaning that she did not have any professional crime-fighting skills as did the two doctors. She was excited to be participating in a spy adventure alongside secret agent Steed although some episodes—"The Removal Men", " The Decapod "—indicate she is not always enthusiastic.
Nonetheless, she appears to be attracted to him, and their relationship is somewhat similar to that later portrayed between Steed and Tara King.
Her episodes featured musical interludes showcasing her singing performances. The character of Venus underwent some revision during her run, adopting more youthful demeanor and dress.
The first episode broadcast in the second series had introduced the partner who would change the show into the format for which it is most remembered.
Honor Blackman played Dr. Cathy Gale , a self-assured, quick-witted anthropologist who was skilled in judo and had a passion for leather clothes.
She was said to have been born on 5 October at midnight, and was raised in Africa. Gale was in her early-to-mid 30s during her tenure, in contrast to female characters in similar series who tended to be younger.
Gale was unlike any female character seen before on British TV, and became a household name. Reportedly, part of her charm was because her earliest appearances were episodes in which dialogue written for Keel was simply transferred to her.
Said series scriptwriter Dennis Spooner : "there's the famous story of how Honor Blackman played Ian Hendry's part, which is why they stuck her in leather and such—it was so much cheaper than changing the lines!
Venus Smith did not return for the third series, and Cathy Gale became Steed's only regular partner. The series established a level of sexual tension between Steed and Gale, but the writers were not allowed to go beyond flirting and innuendo.
Despite this, the relationship between Steed and Gale was progressive for — In "The Golden Eggs", it is revealed that Gale lived in Steed's flat; according to Steed, her rent was to keep the refrigerator well-stocked and to cook for him she appears to do neither.
However, this was said to be a temporary arrangement while Gale looked for a new home, and Steed was sleeping at a hotel. During the first series, there were hints Steed worked for a branch of British Intelligence, and this was expanded in the second series.
Steed initially received orders from different superiors, including someone referred to as "Charles", and "One-Ten" Douglas Muir.
By the third series, the delivery of Steed's orders was not depicted on screen or explained. The secret organisation to which Steed belongs is shown in "The Nutshell", and it is Gale's first visit to their headquarters.
Small references to Steed's background were occasionally made. Since the ties he wears are either cavalry or old school, it is apparent that he had attended a number of leading public schools.
A theatrical film version of the series was in its initial planning stages by late , after Series 3 was completed.
An early story proposal paired Steed and Gale with a male and female duo of American agents, to make the movie appeal to the American market.
Before the project could gain momentum, Blackman was cast opposite Sean Connery in Goldfinger , requiring her to leave the series.
During the Gale era, Steed was transformed from a rugged trenchcoat-wearing agent into the stereotypical English gentleman, complete with Savile Row suit, bowler hat and umbrella, with clothes later designed by Pierre Cardin Steed had first donned bowler and carried his distinctive umbrella during the first series, as "The Frighteners" depicts.
The bowler and umbrella were soon changed to be full of tricks, including a sword hidden within the umbrella handle and a steel plate concealed in the hat.
With his impeccable manners, old-world sophistication and vintage automobiles, Steed came to represent the traditional Englishman of an earlier era.
By contrast, Steed's partners were youthful, forward-looking and always attired in the latest mod fashions.
Gale's innovative leather outfits suited her many athletic fight scenes. Honor Blackman became a star in Britain with her black leather outfits and boots nicknamed " kinky boots " and her judo-based fighting style.
Macnee and Blackman even released a novelty song called " Kinky Boots ". Blackman also carried a pistol in "Killer Whale". Some of the clothes seen in The Avengers were designed at the studio of John Sutcliffe , who published the AtomAge fetish magazine.
Series scriptwriter Dennis Spooner said that the series would frequently feature Steed visiting busy public places such as the main airport in London without anyone else present in the scene.
Well, it wasn't like that. It's just that Steed had to be alone to be accepted. Put him in a crowd and he sticks out like a sore thumb!
Let's face it, with normal people he's weird. The trick to making him acceptable is never to show him in a normal world, just fighting villains who are odder than he is!
The fourth series aired in the US from March to the beginning of September The US deal meant that the producers could afford to start shooting the series on 35mm film.
The use of film, rather than the videotape of the earlier episodes, was essential, because British line video was technically incompatible with the US NTSC videotape format.
Filmed productions were standard on US prime-time television at the time. The Avengers continued to be produced in black and white.
The transfer to film meant that episodes would be shot using the single-camera setup , giving the production greater flexibility.
The use of film production and the single-camera production style allowed more sophisticated visuals and camera angles, and more outdoor location shots, all of which greatly improved the look of the series.
As was standard on British television filmed production through the s, all location work on Series 4 was shot mute, with the soundtrack created in post-production.
Dialogue scenes were filmed in the studio, leading to some jumps between location and studio footage. New female partner Mrs. Emma Peel Diana Rigg debuted in October The name of the character derived from a comment by writers, during development, that they wanted a character with "man appeal".
In an early attempt to incorporate this concept into the character's name, she was called "Samantha Peel", shortened to the awkward "Mantha Peel".
Eventually, the writers began referring to the idea by the verbal shorthand "M. Appeal", which gave rise to the character's ultimate name.
After more than 60 actresses had been auditioned, the first choice to play the role was Elizabeth Shepherd. Her on-screen personality was deemed less interesting than that of Blackman's Gale, and it was decided that she was not right for the role.
Another 20 actresses were auditioned before the show's casting director, Dodo Watts , suggested that producers Brian Clemens and Albert Fennell check out a televised drama featuring the relatively unknown Rigg she had earlier guested in an episode of The Sentimental Agent that Clemens had written.
Rigg's screen test with Macnee showed that the two immediately worked well together. A prologue was added to the beginning of all the fourth-series episodes for the American broadcasts.
This was to clarify some initial confusion audiences had regarding the characters and their mission. In the opener, a waiter holding a champagne bottle falls dead onto a human-sized chessboard, a dagger protruding from a target on his back.
Steed and Mrs. Peel dressed in her trademark leather catsuit walk up to the body as the voice-over explains: "Extraordinary crimes against the people, and the state, have to be avenged by agents extraordinary.
Two such people are John Steed, top professional, and his partner Emma Peel, talented amateur. Otherwise known as The Avengers.
Peel replaces her gun in her boot. They clink glasses and depart together as the screen fades to black and the opening titles begin. In contrast to the Gale episodes, there is a lighter, comic touch in Steed's and Peel's interactions with each other and their reactions to other characters and situations.
Earlier series had a harder tone, with the Gale era including some quite serious espionage dramas. This almost completely disappeared as Steed and Peel visibly enjoy topping each other's witticisms.
The layer of conflict with Gale—who on occasion openly resented being used by Steed, often without her permission—is absent from Steed's interaction with Peel.
Also, the sexual tension between Steed and Gale is quite different from the tension between Steed and Peel.
In both cases, the exact relationship between the partners is left ambiguous, although they seemed to have carte blanche to visit each other's homes whenever they please, and it is not uncommon for scenes to suggest that Steed had spent the night at Gale's or Peel's home, or vice-versa.
Although nothing "improper" is displayed, the close chemistry between Steed and Peel constantly suggests intimacy between the two.
Science fiction and fantasy elements a style later known as Spy-Fi also began to emerge in storylines.
In her fourth episode, "Death at Bargain Prices", Mrs. Peel takes an undercover job at a department store.
Her uniform for promoting space-age toys is an elaborate leather catsuit plus silver boots, sash and welder's gloves. The suit minus the silver accessories became her signature outfit, which she wore primarily for fight scenes in early episodes and in the titles.
Some episodes contain a fetishistic undercurrent. In " A Touch of Brimstone ", Mrs. Peel dresses in a dominatrix outfit of corset, laced boots and spiked collar to become the "Queen of Sin".
Peel's avant-garde fashions, featuring bold accents and high-contrast geometric patterns, emphasise her youthful, contemporary personality.
For the season, some of her most memorable outfits were designed by John Bates , including graphic black-and-white Op art mini-coats and accessories, and a silver ensemble comprising a bra bodice, low-slung trousers and jacket.
According to Macnee in his book The Avengers and Me , Rigg disliked wearing leather and insisted on a new line of fabric athletic wear for the fifth series.
Alun Hughes, who had designed clothing for Rigg's personal wardrobe, was suggested by the actress to design Emma Peel's "softer" new wardrobe.
Pierre Cardin was brought in to design a new wardrobe for Macnee. Eight tight-fitting jumpsuits, in a variety of bright colours, were created using the stretch fabric crimplene.
After one filmed series of 26 episodes in black and white, The Avengers began filming in colour for the fifth series in It was three years before Britain's ITV network began full colour broadcasting.
The first 16 episodes of this series were broadcast concurrently in the US, in colour, and the UK, in black and white, from January to May Eight further episodes were broadcast in the UK beginning in late September, while these episodes were withheld in the US until early , where they would be immediately succeeded by the first batch of episodes featuring Rigg's replacement, Linda Thorson.
The American prologue of the fourth series was modified for the colour episodes. The show opened with the caption The Avengers In Color required by ABC for colour series at that time , followed by Steed unwrapping the foil from a champagne bottle and Peel shooting the cork away.
Unlike the "chessboard" opening of the previous series, this new prologue had no narrative voice-over, and the scene was also included in UK broadcasts of the series.
The first 16 episodes of the fifth series begin with Peel receiving a call-to-duty message from Steed: "Mrs. Peel, we're needed.
The messages were delivered by Steed in increasingly bizarre ways as the series progressed, for example.
On one occasion, Steed appeared on Peel's television set, interrupting an old science-fiction movie actually clips from the Series 4 episode "The Cybernauts" to call her to work.
Another way Steed contacted her was in the beginning of episode 13, "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Station", when she enters her flat and sees a Meccano Percy the Small Engine going around a circular track with a note on one of the train cars that says "Mrs.
Peel" in bold letters. She then walks over to Steed, who says, "You're needed. She turns to see Steed in the apartment removing another strip of wallpaper, revealing "We're needed" painted underneath on another wall.
In another instance, Emma enters Steed's flat to find that he has just fallen down the stairs, and he painfully gasps, "Mrs.
Peel, you're needed. Peel, we're needed" scene. In "The Superlative Seven" the call to duty and the tag both involve a duck-shooting situation in which unexpected items fall from the sky after shots are fired.
The series also introduced a comic tagline caption to the episode title, using the format of "Steed [does this], Emma [does that].
Three other colour Emma Peel episodes were rewrites of Cathy Gale episodes. The "Mrs. Peel, we're needed" scenes and the alternate taglines were dropped after the first 16 episodes, after a break in production, for financial reasons.
Stories were increasingly characterised by a futuristic, science-fiction bent, with mad scientists and their creations wreaking havoc.
The duo dealt with being shrunk to doll size "Mission Highly Improbable" , pet cats being electrically altered to become ferocious and lethal "miniature tigers" "The Hidden Tiger" , killer automata "Return of The Cybernauts" , mind-transferring machines "Who's Who???
The show still carried the basic format: Steed and his associate were charged with solving the problem in the space of a minute episode, thus preserving the safety of s Britain.
Humour was evident in the names and acronyms of the organisations. The series also occasionally adopted a metafictional tone, coming close to breaking the fourth wall.
In the Series 5 episode "Something Nasty in the Nursery", Peel directly references the series' storytelling convention of having potentially helpful sources of information killed off just before she or Steed arrive.
This then occurs a few minutes later. In the tag scene for the same episode, Steed and Peel tell viewers—indirectly—to tune in next week.
Rigg was initially unhappy with the way she was treated by the show's producers. During her first series, she learned that she was being paid less than the cameraman.
She demanded a raise to put her more on a par with her co-star, or she would leave the show. The producers gave in, thanks to the show's great popularity in the US.
On 25 October , to mark 50 years of Emma Peel, the BFI British Film Institute screened an episode of The Avengers followed by an onstage interview with Rigg, during which she discussed her reasons for leaving the show and Patrick Macnee's reaction to her departure.
When Rigg left the series in October , the British network executives decided that the current series formula, despite resulting in popular success, could not be pursued further.
Thus, they decided that a "return to realism" was appropriate for the sixth series — Bryce had a difficult situation to handle.
He had to find a replacement for Rigg and shoot the first seven episodes of the new series, which were supposed to be shipped to the US together with the last eight Emma Peel colour episodes.
Bryce signed his then-girlfriend, year-old newcomer Linda Thorson, as the new female co-star and chose the name Tara King for her character.
Thorson played the role with more innocence in mind and at heart, and unlike the previous partnerships with Cathy and Emma, the writers allowed subtle hints of romance to blossom between Steed and King.
King also differed from Steed's previous partners in that she was a fully fledged albeit initially inexperienced agent working for Steed's organisation; his previous partners had all been in the words of the prologue used for American broadcasts of the first Rigg series talented amateurs.
Bryce wanted Tara to be blonde, so Thorson's brown hair was bleached. However, the process badly damaged Thorson's hair, so she had to wear wigs for the first third of her episodes, until her own hair grew back.
Her natural brown hair was not seen until the episode "All Done with Mirrors". Production of the first seven episodes of the sixth series began.
However, financial problems and internal difficulties undermined Bryce's effort. He only managed to complete three episodes: "Invitation to a Killing" a minute episode introducing Tara King , "The Great, Great Britain Crime" some of its original footage was reused in the episode "Homicide and Old Lace" and "Invasion of the Earthmen" which survived relatively intact except for the scenes in which Tara wears a brown wig.
After a rough cut screening of these episodes to studio executives, Bryce was fired and Clemens and Fennel were summoned back. At their return, a fourth episode called "The Murderous Connection" was in its second day of production.
After revising the script, it was renamed as "The Curious Case of the Countless Clues" and production resumed.
It was just my favourite show to work on. Clemens and Fennel decided to film a new episode to introduce Tara King.
This, the third episode filmed for the sixth series, was titled "The Forget-Me-Knot" and bade farewell to Emma Peel and introduced her successor, a trained but inexperienced agent named Tara King.
It would be broadcast as the first episode of the sixth series. Tara debuts in dynamic style: when Steed is called to Headquarters, he is attacked and knocked down by trainee agent King, who mistakes him for her training partner.
No farewell scenes for Emma Peel had been shot when Rigg left the series. Rigg also filmed a farewell scene for Emma that appeared as the tag scene of the episode.
It was explained that Emma's husband, Peter Peel, was found alive and rescued, and she left the British secret service to be with him. Emma visits Steed to say goodbye, and while leaving she passes Tara on the stairway giving the advice that "he likes his tea stirred anti-clockwise.
Bryce's original episode introducing Tara, "Invitation to a Killing", was revised as a regular minute episode named "Have Guns Will Haggle".
These episodes, together with "Invasion of the Earthmen" and the last eight Peel colour episodes, were shipped to the US in February For this series the government official who gave Steed his orders was depicted on screen.
Mother , introduced in "The Forget-Me-Knot", is a man in a wheelchair. The role was taken by Patrick Newell , who had played different roles in two earlier episodes, most recently in Series 5.
Mother's headquarters would shift from place to place, including one episode in which his complete office was on the top level of a double-decker bus.
Several James Bond films of the s would make use of a similar gimmick for Bond's briefings. Added later as a regular was Mother's mute Amazonian assistant, Rhonda, played by uncredited actress Rhonda Parker.
There was one appearance by an agency official code-named "Father" , a blind older woman played by Iris Russell. Russell had appeared in the series several times previously in other roles.
They were going to make no more, so in that series we went right over the top; we went really weird, because they knew there weren't going to be any more.
Spooner said the series "worked because it became a parody on itself, almost. You can only do that so long. The film buffs used to love it.
There were always lines in it that people knew what we were talking about. The revised series continued to be broadcast in the US.
Steed and King could not compete, and the show was cancelled in the US. Without this vital commercial backing, production could not continue in Britain either, and the series ended in May The final scene of the final episode "Bizarre" has Steed and King, champagne glasses in hand, accidentally launching themselves into orbit aboard a rocket, as Mother breaks the fourth wall and says to the audience, "They'll be back!
The series featured a jazz-influenced theme by John Dankworth. Library music was used sparsely as a soundtrack, sometimes with variations based on the main theme.
Dankworth's theme music was reworked for the third series. Dankworth's first theme was recorded on the Columbia label, on a 45rpm single, and a new recording, similar to the reworked television theme was issued on Fontana in A very faithful cover version was released by Johnny Gregory.
When Rigg joined the series in , the opening credits of the series were redesigned and new theme music by Laurie Johnson was introduced.
This was based on a previously released title, on LP called "The Shake"  which capitalised on " The Shake " dance craze of the 60s.
Johnson re-scored the theme when Linda Thorson joined the series, adding a counter-melody on trumpet, based on the leitmotif for Tara King from the final Rigg episode "The Forget-Me-Knot".
The new theme debuted in the closing titles of the episode "The Forget-Me-Knot", which introduced Thorson. It was altogether more dynamic, and included a much more frenetic percussion section, for the revised teaser sequence.
Importantly, the filmed episodes contained specially composed scores by Johnson. To accompany Steed's request "Mrs Peel — we're needed!
For the 'Thorson' series, a characteristic piece was composed to accompany the tag scene, at the end of each episode.
Owing to a professional commitment to score for the film Hot Millions starring Peter Ustinov and Maggie Smith , Johnson requested assistance from his keyboard player, Howard Blake , who scored some of the episodes of the final season, as well as additional music for other episodes which Johnson did not have time to complete.
These were composed in a style remarkably similar to Johnson's. Of the original Johnson theme, countless cover versions have been released on vinyl and CD, and the opening motif was retained on the series The New Avengers.
Johnson subsequently collaborated with Clemens on other projects, including the theme for The New Avengers. The cars used in the series became almost as famous as the actors.
During the first Peel series Season 4 , each episode ended with a short, humorous scene of the duo leaving the scene of their most recent adventure in some unusual vehicle.
Mother occasionally appeared in a silver Rolls-Royce. Sydney Newman , who would later go on to spearhead the creation of Doctor Who for the BBC, never received screen credit as the creator of The Avengers.
Newman explained that he never sought on-screen credit on the series because during his previous tenure at the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation , such credits were not given, and he never thought to get one for The Avengers.
The production team changed during the series' long run, particularly between the third and fourth series, but the influence of Brian Clemens was felt throughout.
He wrote the second episode and became the series' most prolific scriptwriter. Succeeding producers Leonard White and John Bryce, Julian Wintle became the producer of the 4th series with Brian Clemens credited as associate producer and Albert Fennell credited as "In charge of production".
For series 5, made by A. For series 6, after its initial producer John Bryce left, Clemens and Fennell returned as co-producers; early episodes also credit Julian Wintle as consultant to the series and Philip Levene as story consultant.
Ray Austin became the fight arranger for series 4 and 5, introducing kung fu to the series. Ray Austin, Diana Rigg and Chee Soo were later awarded a Guinness world record  as the first people to show kung fu on television.
Later he became a prolific television director. Joe Dunne took over for series 6. Six series of The Avengers were made between and There was an enforced break in filming and transmission towards the end of series five due to financial problems.
Television researcher Andrew Pixley and authors Paul Cornell , Martin Day and Keith Topping in their book The Avengers Dossier: The Unauthorised and Unofficial Guide consider the last eight episodes produced after the break as constituting a short series six, and therefore count seven series in total.
Within the internal production of The Avengers the last eight episodes were considered to be a continuation of series five.
Although telerecordings of the second and third series were seen in Canada as early as , the first two series of The Avengers were not broadcast on television in the United States.
ABC purchased the rights to broadcast seasons 4 and 5 in the United States in The sale of The Avengers to United States television prompted a change in production style from the line British multi-camera stand to the single-camera shooting method, originated on 35mm film.
The series' stunt man and stunt arranger Ray Austin expressed the opinion that the show's violence ultimately harmed its popular success in the United States.
There The Avengers was given a late timeslot due to its violence. They put us on at pm on CBS [ sic ], because it was too violent. Austin said that on The Avengers "we were determined to do the show our way, the English way, and no one was going to stop us!
And, indeed, no one did stop us. We never, never got to prime time. And it was our own faults, because we would not comply to the Midwest.
That's where the money comes from in this country, nowhere else. If the Midwest watches your show, you've made it.

The advertisement's success spurred financing interest in France for new episodes of The Avengers. The result was a new series, The New Avengers.
