Joanna Lumley makes a foray into the world of espionage as a sexy young New Avenger.
Ten years after the end of the original Avengers, its creators brought the British spy series back with a 1970s twist. Instead of the classic man-woman team, John Steed (Patrick Macnee) was paired with two other agents - Purdey (Joanna Lumley) and Gambit (Gareth Hunt).
This 8 disc collector’s edition of The New Avengers Series 1 & Series 2 follows the adventures of John Steed and new accomplices Purdey and Gambit as they have to deal with extravagant plots and scandalous villains.

If you can enjoy its mixture of the extraordinary Avengers plots and setups, and the darker, hard-edged style of The Professionals, then there is a lot for you to admire. The writing is frequently very good, the more-grounded plots genuinely engrossing, and the banter between Steed, Purdey and Gambit will often raise a smile. Steed remains the same, albeit with a little more development when around his companions, and more is shown of his stake in the delicate espionage scene. Purdey is both a fusion of previous female characters' traits and her own character. Gambit is a tougher character, foreshadowing The Professionals, and his (ultimately useless) flirting with Purdey is priceless. That, together with a smattering of recognizable guest stars and willingness to take up subjects that were likely taboo in the original Avengers years (just watch the first episode), generally makes this a wonderful collection to own, even if it's a little scant on the special features.
Looking at the New Avengers now it's clear that they tried to combine the fun and style with a few less kooky scripts and in that it did pretty well reviving a fun series and giving it new life
Certainly well worth a watch
All said it's a fair package 26 episodes for around  pounds all the leads are emminently watachable and don't take the show too seriously well worth your time especially if your an Avengers fan
