Reviews

Eight more adventures for super-sleuths Steed (Patrick MacNee) and Tara King (Linda Thorson). In 'Invasion of the Earthmen' Steed and Tara take a look at the workings of the Alpha Academy, an educational institute dedicated to preparing teenagers for the conquest of space. In 'The Curious Case of the Countless Clues' Steed is unconvinced that a murder was committed by a press tycoon, despite overwhelming evidence. 'Split!' finds our heroes investigating a murder at the Ministry of Top Secret Information. In 'Get-A-Way!' three Russian agents escape from a monastery in order to kill Steed. 'Have Guns... Will Haggle' sees Tara and Steed duelling with gun-runners. 'Look (Stop Me If You've Heard This One) But There Were These Two Fellers...' finds Tara and Steed on the case when killer comedians go on the rampage. Fantasy becomes reality in the 'My Wildest Dream', when an agresso-therapist drives a businessman to murder. Finally, in 'Whoever Shot Poor George Oblique Stroke XR40', Steed and Tara investigate the sabotage of a government research computer named George.

Despite all of the negative comments Linda Thorson got when she joined the Avengers, who could, honestly do a better job than Diana Rigg??! She got a rough deal, was a little inexperienced and had to fill very big shoes- if you remove all of that, I think the character was a welcome addition. She was different to both of the partners before, and they played the inexperienced agent as part of the show, some of the story lines were a bit out there, but hey, it was the 60's and who knows what they were all on at the time! The Avengers, from beginning to end gets my thumbs up every time, despite the partner. Buy this box set, it's The Avengers for goodness sake!!! :)

It seems that when the Avengers went from monochrome to colour, things went on the slide. The later Emma Peel episodes are inferior to the first series and the story lines got dafter. Ths slide continues with the introduction of Linda Thorson and this was not helped by the fact that she did not have the acting capabilities of her predecessors and her character was generally a bit weak and vulnerable by comparison. Also Steed was a bit full on with Tara King - with Emma Peel in particular, a large part of the fun was the fact that the personal side of their relationship was only hinted at, and largely left to the imagination.

That said, Patrick Macnee continues to excel and this set is probably a better way of passing a few hours than most of the dross that is on telly today.
