The Original British TV Cult Classic

Avengers '64 - Volume 3

A woman of science, dressed in leather, subduing villains with brutal blows and judo throws. A gentleman-gladiator, dapper with bowler and bumbershoot, ruthlessly crushing the Empire's foes. Join the irresistible f-rce, Mrs. Cathy Gale (Honor Blackman) and the unflappable object, John Steed (Patrick Macnee) as they make the world safe for gentility as The Avengers.

Build A Better Mousetrap

Cathy, having joined a motorcycle gang, asks two old ladies for permission to hold a "scramble" on their fields. Denying the request, the ladies cast a spell. Lo and behold the motorbikes inexplicably stall, along with every mechanical device for miles around. Is it witchcraft? The local nuclear test facility? Or something even more sinister?

The Outside-In Man

When an anti-British activist once marked for termination arrives in England with diplomatic immunity, the agent sent to kill him years ago "returns from the dead" to finish the job. Now Steed must protect the traitor from a fellow British agent! Look for a rare appearance of Steed's "superior", Quilpie, undercover in a butcher's shop.

The Charmers

When a number of agents -- friend and foe -- are murdered, Steed suspects a third party is responsible. An exchange of hostages, including Cathy, facilitates a shaky cooperative detente that leads The Avengers to a charm school for gentlemen assassins. The Charmers was later remade, with Diana Rigg, as The Correct Way To Kill.

Avengers '64 - Volume 4

Military madmen, traitors, terrorists, smugglers, arsonists, lobster trawlers and gigantic men in kilts. Have Mrs. Cathy Gale (Honor Blackman) and John Steed (Patrick Macnee) - the incomparable Avengers - ever faced as formidable an array of foes? Or have the nefarious f-rces of Network Programming intentionally saved the most delightful adventures for Cathy Gale's final episodes?

Concerto

Who stands to gain from discrditing a visiting Russian pianist? Has it anything to do with upcoming international trade talks? Steed and Cathy again find themselves cooperating with the enemy as they race to prevent an unseemly international incident -- namely, murder.

Esprit de Corps

An attempted military coup by Scottish conspirators places Steed in front of a firing squad and very nearly places Cathy upon the throne of England! The unprincipled Private Jessup (the late, great Roy Kinnear) provides the loose thread that unravels the tartan terrorists' tactics.

Lobster Quadrille

An agent dies in a suspicious fire, leaving only a rare chess piece as a clue. Dope smuggling, kidnapping and resurrected lobstermen set the tempo for Cathy Gale's farewell Avengers episode. The final scene features Steed tweaking Cathy about her plans to "pussyfoot around" on the beach in the Bahamas. Off camera, Honor Blackman has decided to leave the show to play Pussy Galore in Goldfinger.
