For anyone who is a fan of the 1960's British television series THE AVENGERS, this book is treasure trove of photos of each season of the show. Starting with Ian Hendry as Doctor Davis Keel, to Honor Blackman as Cathy Gale, Diana Rigg as Mrs. Emma Peel, to Linda Thorson as Tara King a collection of photos, many in color, tell the story of each season. Many of the photos were taken the set while shooting. If your into THE AVENGERS this is a must for your collection.
