These DVD partworks comprised a magazine and a DVD they are generally referred to as the 'kiosque edition'. Usually, the magazine's content would be focused upon the episodes included on the DVD. Although the magazines were printed in French language, all the DVDs had English soundtracks and French subtitles. The DVDs of Emma Peel and Tara King eras had additional French dubbed soundtracks, as did those of The New Avengers. The DVDs featured no extras unless stated.

DVDs are listed in release order. These releases were available in shops and by mail order.
