Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
The '68 Avengers were a crime-fighting team in transition: The unforgettable Emma Peel (Diana Rigg) had left, and many fans hurled their bowlers into the Thames in dismay. The Tara King era began with the handicap of carrying on in the shadow of the future Dame Rigg, yet Linda Thorson quickly connected with the dashingly dapper John Steed (Patrick Macnee), and the two established a fine rhythm. During the seven episodes compiled here, the duo encounter a high-voltage killer in a church catacomb, tangle with a mad bomber threatening to blow up England, and probe the deaths of unscrupulous tycoons -- all with their characteristic dry wit and aplomb. Digitally remastered and in full color, this two-DVD set is an essential part of The Avengers legacy. Episodes include:
  • "Thingumajig": A killer is preying on victims in a church catacomb.
  • "Pandora": Two brothers lure Tara into a plot to steal a fortune from their insane Uncle Gregory.
  • "Requiem": It looks as if Mother has met his maker. But things aren't always what they seem!
  • "Take-Over": With the flick of a lighter, a peace conference could go up in smoke.
  • "Who Was that Man I Saw You With?": An evil doctor programs people to act out their violent fantasies.
  • "My Wildest Dream": Steed tussles with an evil mastermind planning to bomb England.
  • "Bizarre": Steed and Tara dig for clues in the suspicious deaths of crooked tycoons.
