The Avengers' indisputable impact and popularity is clearly reflected
through the numerous websites dedicated to the series. Hundreds of pages
covering every imaginable aspect of the showfrom general information
to memorabiliaswarm over cyberspace from every corner of the world.
Although most of them are in English, there's a small yet significant
collection of sites in German, Italian, French, Dutch and Swedish, which
surely will be the polyglots' pride and joy. Needless to say, at the time
of its launch, Los Vengadores was the first Avengers site in Spanish,
and, to the best of our knowledge, it is still the only one.
This page offers a selection of links to the sites we like and love the
most. For the sake of clarity, we've put them together thematically, according
to the following scheme:
- The Series: general information; episode
reviews; images and sounds.
- The Stars and Their Characters: information
on the actors and actresses starring the series; tributes to the different
- Forums: Want to know something in particular

things first: our home
TheAvengers.TV - a family of sites about
A family of sites dedicated to "The Avengers"? That's right.
Originally created as a new URL for his own site, David K. Smith generously
decided to expand his project, making of TheAvengers.TV
the home for international Avengers websites. Along with some of the authors
who best know about the series, like Alan & Alys Hayes and Mike Noon,
David established this singular home that hosts an increasing group of
sites (including ours!). Let's introduce our relatives:
The Avengers Forever!
A must! An absolute don't-miss site if you're looking for the most comprehensive
information about "The Avengers" and "The New Avengers."
David K. Smith has left nothing aside, and his site looks like a true
"virtual encyclopedia" (as he names it) which, in addition,
is constantly enriched thanks to the active participation of visitors.
Still more: David is the only host who has dedicated a special section
in his site for reports on "The Avengers" in other countries
around the worldof course, Argentina has its own page. To sum-up, "The
Avengers Forever" is a place that invites you to stop by for a long
while. Don't miss it by any means!
The Avengers eStore
"The place" in the Internet to buy Avengers books, CDs, videos
or DVDs. Conceived originally as the "Merchandising" section
within "The Avengers Forever," "The Avengers eStore"
was re-launched by David K. Smith as a new, separate website, as part
of "TheAvengers.TV" global project. Any purchase you make through
its links, will help to support the webspace of the site you're surfing
right now, as well as the other sites from "TheAvengers.TV"
on the Radio (UK)
What? "The Avengers" was also on the radio? Yup, on a South
African radio, no less. Here is your chance to find out about one of the
most bizarre chapters in the history of a bizarre series. Our trusty Alan
and Alys Hayes managed to track down the forgotten radio plays and carried
out a commendable restoration work of the original tapes. Thanks to their
effort, all of us can enjoy today these legendary 30-years-old radio shows
that undoubtedly are part of the ever fascinating Avengers universe. Alan
and Alys, you're great!
The Avengers Press And PR Archive (UK)
As always, the virtual Avengers library reflects Mike Noon's praiseworthy
trouble to compile every bit of the information about the Avengers published
in the media. Articles came not only from English newspapers and magazines,
but also from the rest of Europe, ranging from the very beginning of the
series in 1960 to the curtain fall with "The New Avengers" (1977).
Not only thatthe press section covers right up to the present. Hard
Don't panic! The old "Noon: Doomsday" died out... as a name
only! Host Mike Noon decided to split it up into two new websites: "Dead
Duck" and "Deadline" (see the next link below) both named
after the Avengers novels co-authored by Peter Leslie and Patrick Macnee.
"Dead Duck" contains an astonishing detail of Avengers merchandise
that Mike offered in his previous sitebooks, toys, games, songs, fanzines,
trading cards and all that your imagination can conceive. A true delight
for all fans.
The Avengers Illustrated
Another outstanding website from Mike Noon. This time, Mike devotes his
site to the many comic strips versions of "The Avengers." Annuals,
newspaper strips, cartoons and comic books originating from England, France,
Holland, Germany or other countries are carefully presented here. If you
always wanted to see Steed, Emma, Tara and even Mother in comic strip
form, then The Avengers Illustrated is the site you're looking for.
And now let's cordially introduce our neighbors...
We're Needed! (Australia)
Webmaster Piers Johnson claims to have put the first website ever devoted
to "The Avengers" on the internet. That's some pioneer! In line
with the site's name, Piers deals only with the Emma Peel seasons. Nevertheless,
you'll find here the most impressive (and complete) data on each episode
of the Peel series, with hundreds of screenshots and the most incredible
detailsfrom clothing to every drink consumed in every single episode.
Quite Fantastic Avengers Website Ltd. (UK)
Sporting "The New Avengers" logo in its beautiful graphic design,
QQF is essentially a site dedicated to review every episode of the entire
series, including "The New Avengers." You want more? Sure! Look
for the comments on the ill-fated Avengers motion picture, plus additional
information about books, videos, DVDs and other Avengers goods. Quite,
quite good show!
Charm And Bowler (UK)
Probably the Internet's most original Avengers website, With Umbrella,
Charm And Bowler offer us a different glance to The Avengers universe,
displaying one of the most exquisite senses of humour that you can find
within its bounds. To ROTFL for hours.
A site owned by Scot Alistair McGown, it was named after Mrs Peel's sports
car. Good entertainment, containing many useful thingslate breaking
news, images, episode reviews, articles... and, needless to say, the most
in-depth details of Emma's Lotus Elan.
The Nitpicker's Guide To The
You thought nobody has ever made any mistake in "The Avengers"?
Ask webmaster Sam McCallie! A unique, ever growing Avengers site, The
Nitpicker's Guide compiles all those slip-ups and omissions that occurred
along the different episodes, as proof that the camera cannot lie. A new,
excellent Avengers proposal showing that not even our favorite TV show
Tons of Avenging soundsfrom the original scores of each season to The
Joker's "Mein Liebling, Mein Rose;" from "Kinky Boots"
to the memorable "Eee-urp!" Wow! You'll find lots of sound effects
as well, dialogue, and the like, available in WAV, Real Audio, MP3 and
MIDI formats. Are you listening, pal?
Official Canal+Image Avengers
As the name states, this is the official site (duh!) of Canal Plus, the
company that owns the copyright of the original series both on video and
DVD. The photo album (official photos, obviously) is the largest you'll
find on the Internet. Also there's a cast/credits list in pop-up format
for each episode. As far as we know, this is the only Avengers website
that exists in two versionsboth HTML and Flash. Also we might have said
this was the only bilingual Avengers site (English and French)... until
Los Vengadores hit the web!
Authorised Guide to
The New Avengers (UK)
Without a doubt, the most comprehensive information on "The New Avengers"
is here, where Dave Matthews, the webmaster, has the last word. An exclusive
site for the Steed of the 70s and his partners Purdey and Gambit, that
in general smacks of a very good job, even though some sections would
benefit from an urgent update.
The Stars And Their Characters
Patrick Macnee's Official Homepage
Mr Macnee took his time to appear "officially" on the net, but
thanks to a little help from his son Rupert, his straightforward, user-friendly
website was eventually launched in August 2000. Don't miss the "Work"
section, which contains exhaustive detail of Patrick's professional career.
Now if you'd like to learn when Patrick will make his next public appearance,
do his next chat, etc, then go visit the "News" section, and
you'll be kept informed. Oh, and don't forget to sign the guestbookPatrick
indeed reads every message posted there, and loves hearing from his fans
Tired of visiting websites where only the Avengers girls (Mrs Peel, Mrs
Gale, Tara or Purdey) are brought up for discussion, ignoring our dashing
hero John Steed? Then drop by this one! Just pay it a visit and you'll
enjoy many photos, screen grabs and very intricate appraisals of the gentleman
with umbrella and bowler hat. A site 100% devoted to Steed... and very
well made! A round of applause for webmistress Judith Rolls!
Emma Peel Home Page
A personal homepage of its author, the very young Liz Eggleston, rather
than a site dedicated to Mrs Peel. However, in her section devoted to
Emma, Liz shows a collection of photomontages and other images of our
heroine in catsuits, both in black & white and color, alone or along
with Steed, that will delight everyone.
Actually this is a small tribute that Chris Johnson, our friend and host
of Cult TV-Memorabilia has paid to Linda. There isn't too much artwork
in this non-pretentious website, but information, some interviews, photos
and recent news on her. Well done, Chris!
is a Swinging Chick (USA)
As part of a site called "Swingin' Chicks of the ' 60s," containing
condensed biographies of almost 200 actresses who shone brightly in that
decade, Honor Blackman has her place. Not much for a star who'd deserve
a lot more, but acceptable. Of course, among those 200 names, also it
is Diana Rigg.

This is not a short tale, grant you. Author Margaret
Warren has written a book! A fascinating, very enjoyable Avengers
novel you can download through Margaret and Jim Warren's site, The
Sword and The Quill. "Rough Magic" is about 1 Mb in size,
enough to give us an idea of the effort Margaret has put into it. And
the story is so well written that it's a true joy to read!
Avengers Fiction Circle
Believe it or not, many of the biggest fans of "The Avengers"
are members of the Avengers Fiction Circle (AFC) and have written excellent
fanfic with such plots that would leave Brian Clemens himself puzzled!
