As we reported earlier, not everything has survived, but the remaining episodes of the first series of The Avengers, along with the second series, have been reissued on an eight-disc DVD boxset, courtesy of Optimum – and we have one of these superb boxes to give away.
Just two and a half first series episodes survive, but thankfully all of series 2 is still around, all fully restored (for the first time) and of course with Patrick Macnee playing Steed, Honor Blackman doing the partner thing as Catherine/Cathy Gale. The entire eight-disc set has a running time of 1,520 minutes, augmented by extras including a 132-page book covering series one, a series one scrapbook, scripts, materials, stills, promotional brochures, audio commentaries and an Honor Blackman interview – most of that new for this release.
It's available from this week (5th October 2009) and priced around £79.99, but if you want one for nothing, we have a box to give away. Just follow the link to the competiton page on our Modculture site.
