THE AVENGERS: A CELEBRATION
50 Years of a Television Classic

Compiled with unprecedented access to the show's official archive, The Avengers: A Celebration is a glorious visual tribute to mark the 50th anniversary of the show that defined 60s television [Titan Books, Oct, 24.99].

Written by Marcus Hearn (Hammer Glamour, The Hammer Story), with a foreword by the legendary Patrick Macnee, this stunning, large-format hardback is packed with newly discovered photographs and exclusive memories from the cast and crew.

Fifty years ago, production began on The Avengers, a TV series that has yet to be rivaled for its wit, adventure and sheer style.

Urbane agent John Steed (Patrick Macnee) fought diabolical masterminds with a succession of impossibly cool female partners. These included Cathy Gale (played by Honor Blackman), Tara King (Linda Thorson) and of course the iconic Mrs Peel played by Diana Rigg.

The show quickly became a worldwide sensation syndicated to 90 countries, including the US, where it was a prime time hit!

"The Avengers is the purest and most enjoyable form of escapism."
The Guardian

"Impossible to take seriously, these incredible secret agent stories
nevertheless make compulsive viewing."
The Daily Express

"Sexier than Doctor Who, wittier than The Prisoner. Classier than The Saint."
Empire

Marcus Hearn is the acclaimed author of Titan's Hammer Glamour and The Hammer Story (with Alan Barnes). His other books include authorised biographies of filmmakers George Lucas and Gerry Anderson, and Eight Days a Week, the story of The Beatles' final world tour.
