I was flicking through the channels last night and came across EPIC on Britbox, good grief I was absolutely astounded, the picture quality was out of this world, I've literally never seen The Avengers like it before, the clarity and the colours Shocked were simply astounding, far superior to even the Blu Ray discs. EPIC is one of my least favourite episodes, but so bewitched by the absolute clarity of the picture and the eye popping colours that I sat through the whole episode, not for the content but simply for the visuals, I couldn't take my eyes off the screen, it was simply unbelievable!

No idea, but the quality was absolutely astounding. I've got the Blu Rays and they look archaic by comparison.

It bodes well if these are the new broadcast masters that Studio Canal are sending out.

One of my favourites, though not a widely-respected episode. Some very good actors in it. And initially very odd and unusual. A primary appeal of the Avengers for me was it's bizarreness.

Are all existing episodes remastered? I've started a 7-day free trial and they seem to have every filmed series, plus a couple of Dr Keel's episodes.

darn, you beat me to asking that question...i.e. all existing 'color' episodes remastered ? or have they included the monochromes as well ??

I love Thingumajig, a very unusual episode in many ways, I've watched it countless times. However I couldn't take my eyes off of Tara's sequined top last night, the detail shown in it in this print was eye popping!

Remastering: Very Happy

TV moving to VoD and DVD/BluRay probably going away over time: Sad
