A stylish early release for our Sixties recreation - the latest adventures of Steed and Keel are out now!
Originally transmitted in 1961, The Avengers was a groundbreaking crime adventure series, following the adventures of John Steed, a suave secret agent investigating Britain's strangest crimes - aided by the dashing Dr. David Keel. Together, they pitted themselves against the underworld's most devious and colourful villains.
Sadly, 24 of the 26 episodes of the first series no longer exist; but Big Finish have revitalised these missing episodes in a series of audio box sets, starring Anthony Howell as Dr. Keel, Julian Wadham as Steed, and Lucy Briggs-Owen as Carol Wilson.
