Is a white dwarf on a collion course with the Earth. And what could a bowler-hatted spy and his leather-clad sidekick do about it?
Fascinating though flabby, an episode about the recruitment of spies in elite British universities, first transmitted just after Kim Philby had fled to the USSR
Mrs Gale is the focus of this episode, a slightly stodgy episode chiefly notable for pointing out how Victorian values and dress codes were still alive and well in 1960s London
The 1960s of letting it all hang out, the occult and the Iron Curtain all coalesce in this faintly Austin Powers-flavoured episode of The Avengers
A candidate for most boring episode of The Avengers TV series so far. No sign of Mrs Gale (Honor Blackman), which doesn't help things along at all. Instead two plotlines in search of excitement…
It's indestructible ceramic tiles for space rockets, rather than the arts, that's the nominal subject of an episode actually concerned with the dead hand of British industry bosses – again
Making the episode entirely her own, Honor Blackman's Mrs Gale pretends to be a German assassin in the first Avengers episode of 1963
John Steed and right hand man Dr Martin King head to Ireland, where a plane has crashed and an order of nuns is possibly implicated
The settings are exotic but the spycraft is practical in this Steed/Gale outing that sees them bouncing all over Central/South America
A barely-in-it Steed and a decidely prominent Mrs Gale investgate when a scientist is frozen to death inside a super-computer.
