One of our biggest spy ranges is the classic The Avengers series. In 1961 The Avengers burst onto our television screens starring Ian Hendry as Dr David Keel and Patrick Macnee as John Steed. It began with a tragedy – and then pitted Keel and Steed against the underworld over the course of twenty-six episodes, of which only two episodes still exist in their entirety.
Enter Big Finish! Seven volumes of The Avengers: The Lost Episodes have since been produced bringing the TV series back to life on audio with Anthony Howell as Dr David Keel and Julian Wadham as John Steed. You can currently pick up The Lost Episodes with a massive 50% discount. Or why not save even more money by ordering the entire collection of The Lost Episodes in a bundle.
For those familiar with The Avengers featuring the character of Mrs Peel (played on television by Dame Diana Rigg), Big Finish has released two volumes of The Avengers – Steed and Mrs Peel. These audio box sets are recreations of comic strips from the 1960s, also available as a graphic novel. You can order the comic strip adaptations and the book either separately from the offer page, or in a bundle.
Big Finish has also brought another iconic spy thriller series to life 50 years after it was first broadcast on television. Based on the classic ITV series, two volumes of The Prisoner have been re-imagined for audio by Nicholas Briggs, with a third volume due out later this year.
The Prisoner was a psychological experiment in an unforgettable series in which hero Number Six, played on television by Patrick McGoohan, was constantly tested. The main antagonist, the sinister Number Two (played by multiple actors), would drive Number Six to extreme limits in their attempts to find out why he resigned from the secret service.
January 16th, 1967... A secret agent resigns, then wakes up to find himself imprisoned in the 'Village’ – a bizarre community with a cheery veneer, but an underbelly of mystery and threat. All occupants of the Village have numbers instead of names, with our secret agent forced to accept the mantel of Number Six.
As part of this special offer, all three volumes of The Prisoner are currently available at their pre-order prices. Or you can save even more money by ordering The Prisoner Volumes One and Two and pre-ordering Volume Three in a bundle.
Another resurrected series from the sixties on special offer is Callan. This edgy gripping TV series by James Mitchell starred Edward Woodward as David Callan, an assassin who worked for ‘The Section’. But Callan is an assassin with a difference, often operating against commanding orders, never trusting or being trusted by fellow spies or assassins, nor his sadistic senior colleagues. The only person Callan trusts is Lonely, a petty thief who has odour issues when nervous…
Callan Volume One contains four full-cast adaptations of Callan stories by Callan creator James Mitchell’s son, Peter Mitchell. Ben Miles takes on the role of David Callan and Frank Skinner plays Lonely. Murder, betrayal and model soldiers. It’s all in a day’s work for Callan.
Volume One is available now or why not save more money by ordering Volume One and pre-ordering Volume Two in a bundle.
The Treachery Game and The Assassination Run are narrated by Dan Starkey (Strax). The Fetch is read by Carolyn Seymour and The Evil Thereof is read by Barnaby Edwards. You can pick up all of these audiobooks on download at £5 each, or get them in a bundle together at £10 for two.
