For the unenlightened: During the 1960s in Britain, there were two very high quality Science-Fiction Shows: Doctor Who and The Avengers. This had nothing to do with an American comic book of the same name, so if you were hoping to see the Doctor take down the Hulk with his sonic screwdriver, leave now.

All right, so, some quick background. The Avengers were a team of spies, who took on threats ranging from giant carnivorous plants to "invisible" men to deadly housecats. They worked for a shady group known as "The Organization", which was run by "Mother", a man.

The most commonly known pair of Avengers were John Steed (Patrick Macnee), a dapper Englishman armed with only his Bowler hat and his umbrella, and Mrs. Emma Peel (Diana Rigg), a skilled fighter in hand-to-hand combat and estranged wife of a missing explorer.

Steed had 2 other partners during his career: Cathy Gale and Tara King. But they really are not central to this storyline.

So without further ado…
