The New Avengers

Albert Fennell and Brian Clemens revived The Avengers in 1976, enabled by co-production deals with IDTV Productions of Paris and Neilson-Ferns Productions of Toronto. Patrick MacNee recreated John Steed, with 'action' requirements fulfilled by Gareth Hunt as Mike Gambit, and 'glamour' provided by Joanna Lumley as Purdey. Two series of 13 episodes were made, the last four of which were set in Canada.
