That last batch didn't look visually very Avengers like.

I've just followed a hunch and they're actually sets from Gerry Anderson's live action show The Protectors starring Robert Vaughn and Nyree Dawn Porter (Who Sydney Newman wanted for Cathy Gale). It's Vaughn's character's apartment.
Harry Rule's pad! I thought I recognised the sofa. I wonder how ITC stuff got caught up with the ABPC/Thames Avengers lot?

I'll do my best with these...

If that rule holds true then all of the following should be Avengers, the possible exception being the exterior shot since that only has a two-digit number on the back...




Game - the entrance to Bristow's House (first appeared in Whoever Shot Poor George and then You'll Catch Your Death)



Killer - the reception to REMAK.



Killer - The house of the architect who designed REMAK (as far as I recall it's a while since I saw this episode.



Super Secret Sypher Snatch - Jarret's apartment (with a redress and a door shifting it becomes a flat in False Witness)



Take Me To Your Leader - I'm not 100% on this one but I'm fairly certain it's the entrance to the crypt that Tara gets locked in.



I've drawn a blank on this.

That looks like Bhaktivedanta Manor in Letchmore Heath (which was bought by George Harrison in the early 70's) and featured in episodes of Department S and Randall & Hopkirk (Deceased).

Ah yes, so it is.

It could be either series, they were made consecutively.

I think it's great how you can say:

and know the episodes so well that you can identify all these just from memory!

I'm sure you are right about the entrance to the crypt because there is also one of the crypt interior:



Here's also a few more (easier?) Avengers ones by way of variety:

this gets more and more interesting every day!
There are half-a-dozen interior shots with low numbers and I wonder if they are perhaps inside this house, or a different [non-Avengers] location entirely? A sample is below:

The second one is after the church tower has been rotted away in The Rotters.

Third one is the street outside Kreer's house in Stay Tuned.

And the fourth is the fancy dress shop from Fog. Which seeing this shot makes me realise it was a redress of a set from Take Me To Your Leader.

Isn't the church crypt interior (with tomb) again from "Take Me To Your Leader"?

This looks very similar to a shot that had Emma Peel getting in to her Lotus (in an obvious studio) from series 5. I think it appears in more than one episode. Though it'd be strange to have a series 5 photo amongst all these series 6 ones.

Darren, you're very good at spotting these reused sets.

Design is one of my interests. Ask me plot details and that would take some doing but I'm a visual person so I notice these things very easily.

The Avengers did the whole set reuse thing far less than many of film series of the time. Something like Randall and Hoprkirk had this big hallway set that was constantly reused throughout. And department S had a corridor that had many uses.

Incidentally the Take Me To Your Leader crypt became a rejigged Mother's office in Who Was That Man I Saw You With?

I had picked up on some of these and the general redressing of standing sets and they are mentioned in my forthcoming book Bowler Hats and Kinky Boots.

I know what you're thinking of, Epic (it's supposed to represent the street outside her apartment) but they aren't the same.

I must admit that I'm in a bit of a quandry about what to do with these photos now. On the one hand it's great to have such unique items as the centre of my Avengers collection, but on the other hand I know so little about The Avengers compared to most of the people on this forum that I wonder if they are historically important enough that they should really be with someone who could get much more out of them than I can. It's a bit of a tough call and not something I want to rush into and regret, but if I do decide to put them on ebay in the near future I'll let you all know first.
Thanks so much for all your help.

Yes, thank you for sharing them. I don't think you need be too concerned about owning them though as it was a case of supply and demand when you bought them and there wasn't much competition so you have them fair and square - it's been a huge boon to all of us to see them! There was a massive collection of unseen Avengers photographic materials a few years back, sold on Ebay, with negatives, slides etc and great swathes of them were unpublished, and hitherto unsuspected. I don't think any of those have seen the light of day and if I'd had 3000 pounds spare I would've bought them and published them for posterity, but they seem to have been acquired by a hoarder, or worse still perhaps broken up into small lots or sold to some commercial concern that's lost interest. You've done a massive service by letting people know what's in your collection and I think you deserve to keep them! Just ensure that they're sold or bequeathed to the BFI or somewhere that will value them as the historic TV treasures they are (maybe not the Canal archive...!)...

Thank you and that is a thoroughly excellent suggestion about the BFI. I had wondered if there was a central archive for Avengers items after seeing all the photos as extras on the dvds but hadn't thought of the BFI. As soon as I read that I felt that would ultimately be a perfect home for them if they want them, so I'm relieved now to enjoy them with a clear conscience and I'll donate them when the time feels right.

At some point I may also scan in all the remaining images and host them online as well.

Please do NOT leave them to the BFI - they'll be basically wrapped up in red tape forever!

Whereas with Canal they won't be looked after as they deserve to be... what a quandary. Is there another film/TV museum with staying power?
