The Strange Case of the Missing Episodes - The Lost Stories of the Avengers Series 1 By Alan Hayes, Richard McGinlay, Alys Hayes
eBook (ePub): $1.24
EPUB Version. In the mid-Sixties, The Avengers proved itself to be a cultural phenomenon. Despite its quintessential Englishness, it transcended international barriers, and established itself as... More > British television’s most successful export of the day. Today, it remains hugely popular, perhaps because of the schizophrenic nature of the show as it developed; it was a series of many colours, with something for everyone. But the earliest episodes of the show have, since their 1961 broadcast, disappeared from view, the vast majority of the recordings lost forever. The Strange Case of the Missing Episodes lifts the lid on that first year, and retells the stories in extended synopsis form, covering twenty-four episodes, often with script extracts, in greater depth than ever before. The book also boasts a detailed introduction, which explores how these much sought after programmes came to be lost, and a detailed retelling of an alternative, untransmitted version of the episode Double Danger.< Less

The Avengers was a unique, genre-defying television series which blurred the traditional boundaries between ‘light entertainment’ and disturbing drama. It was a product of the... More > constantly-evolving 1960s yet retains a timeless charm. The monochrome filmed Emma Peel season had established a cult following for a series which became an intrinsic part of the ‘Swinging Sixties’. Backed by US dollars, the show was now filmed ‘in color’ and Avengerland becomes stranger and more playful than ever: Steed is shrunk to the size of a desk pad, forced to evade a machine-gun-toting nanny; Emma Peel is tortured in a medieval ducking stool and turned into a living cybernaut. Mrs. Peel, We’re Needed draws on the knowledge of a broad range of experts and fans of The Avengers as it explores the wonderfully mad Technicolor world of Emma Peel. “The Avengers in pop culture is The Avengers with Diana Rigg and Patrick Macnee, in colour. It is this season that defines the show.” (Piers Johnson)< Less
