Trivia

The opening credits for the first 7 episodes of series one were edited out the first five episodes of the series, mainly "The Eagle's Nest" and "The Midas Touch". However, one shot featuring Joanna Lumley with long hair and Gareth Hunt in jeans was actually from their combined screen-test instead of an episode. From episode 8 onward, animated opening titles were used. See more »

Crazy Credits

The opening credits begin with the same fanfare that was used at the start of the original The Avengers (1961) series. See more »

In Love with Joanna Lumley
21 August 2001 | by edval24See all my reviews

Loved the 60's version a real mind trip and lots of fun with Steed and Emma...the only reason I viewed The New Avengers was to watch the resourceful, witty, beautiful and ultra-feminine Purdey played by Joanna Lumley, plain and simple.
