Details

The Avengers burst onto television screens in the 1960s, and the show’s mix of wit, adventure and beautiful women became an instant hit! Marcus Hearn has been granted unparalleled access to the show’s production archives and has collected a fabulous array of material. Lavishly illustrated, with many unpublished stills, behind-the-scenes photos, and snaps from the ABC & LWT private archive, this is a spectacular portrait of the world's best-loved cult action-adventure series, and its classic sequel, The New Avengers.

Here is every season, with John Steed battling evil with the help of Cathy Gale (Honor Blackman), Tara King (Linda Thorson) and, of course, the iconic Emma Peel, played by Diana Rigg. Loads of high clarity scenes from the series, and also behind-the-camera shots, publicity photos (a gorgeous one of Emma Peel), advertising promotions. This is clearly THE book on the series. In both black and white and very often in full color.

"Sexier than Dr. Who, wittier than The Prisoner, classier than The Saint." --Empire

"..the posh, winking savoir faire of The Avengers tickled the cusp of the sexual revolution...that was the show's real romance...the image of arch British reserve giving way to swinging freedom." --Entertainment Weekly
