Mr Steed and Mrs Peel

A true classic TV theme to a quintessentially British series – this is The Avengers as it was always destined to become once Ian Hendry and Honor Blackman had left.

Who could forget those endings in particular, often involving Champagne, sometimes in a 'fountain'...

Here is the extended version of the theme, along with some stills from episodes of that era...
