Win The Avengers Series 6 Blu-ray sets for nominating in the Cult TV AwardsThe Avengers – The Complete Series 6 on Blu-ray, with a RRP of £79.99, was the incentive prize for nominating your favourites in the Cult TV Awards 2015. Thanks to StudioCanal we had three sets to give away, with the winners chosen from all those who gave us their nominations, thus helping continue to make our Awards truly representative of UK television fandom.

This was the final season of the original series of stories featuring John Steed. It begins with the departure of Diana Rigg’s Emma Peel, who hands over to Linda Thorson’s Tara King. In retrospect, these episodes may be of varying quality, but when it gets it right we are presented with some of the best episodes of The Avengers EVER! The troubled beginning to this run of episodes, rescued by the return of producers Brian Clemens and Albert Fennell, followed Cathy-Gale-era producer John Bryce taking the helm for the best part of three episodes, which were little short of disastrous. These episodes were re-edited, where possible, to rescue the majority of work on them from the scrap heap.

All 33 episodes feature in this set, as you might expect: “The Forget-Me-Knot”, “Invasion of the Earthmen”, “The Curious Case of the Countless Clues”, “Split!”, “Get-A-Way!”, “Have Guns-Will Haggle”, “Look (Stop Me If You”ve Heard This One) But There Were These Two Fellers...”, “My Wildest Dream”, “Whoever Shot Poor George Oblique Stroke XR40?”, “You”ll Catch Your Death”, “All Done with Mirrors”, “Super-Secret Cypher Snatch”, “Game”, “False Witness”, “Noon-Doomsday”, “Legacy of Death”, “They Keep Killing Steed”, “Wish You Were Here”, “Killer”, “The Rotters”, “The Interrogators”, “The Morning After”, “Love All”, “Take Me to Your Leader”, “Stay Tuned”, “Fog”, “Who Was That Man I Saw You With?”, “Pandora”, “Thingumajig”, “Homicide and Old Lace”, “Requiem”, “Take-Over” and “Bizarre”.

Special features include:

  • Audio commentary on “Split!” with director Roy Ward Baker and scriptwriter/producer Brian Clemens
