Fifty years ago, production began on The Avengers, a TV series that has yet to be rivalled for its wit, adventure and sheer style. The urbane agent John Steed (Patrick Macnee) swung his way through the 1960s with a succession of impossibly cool female partners, including Cathy Gale (played by Honor Blackman) and of course the iconic, catsuited Mrs Peel (Diana Rigg). The show quickly became a worldwide sensation syndicated to 90 countries, including the US, where it was a prime time hit. Here, thanks to unprecedented access to the show’s archive, is a glorious visual celebration of the show that defined 60s television, packed with rare and previously unpublished photographs and memories from the cast and crew.
