I've got the second annual. I've never seen the TV Times Souvenir Extra "in the flesh", sadly! I did see the New Avengers novelisations, as a teenager, but they were disdained by me as "too recent" and I passed over them in favour of James Bond novels (what an idiot I was - I also passed over the Saint books, which are utterly brilliant - however I read chunks of them in the second-hand book shop and was intrigued enough by the "period" 1930s settings, so they did stick in my mind and eventually ensnare me). The scary thing is that "The New Avengers" now is nearly 40 years ago, as old as the 1930s Saint books were to me in the 1970s.

But style - and great writing - never really ages. I'm sure someone in the 1880s was moaning how Dumas was a big part of the reading of his youth -and he still outsells many modern authors.

Frankymole: I used to have the second annual but, in a moment of weakness, I traded it for some Saint memorabilia. Thought I'd have no trouble finding another but as yet still no sign. I don't have online accounts so ebay is out. Must wake up and join the 21st Century!!
I have a huge collection of Saint memorabilia which stemmed from privately collecting anything on Roger Moore. That started in 1979, but slowly the collection veered towards The Saint so included were the Ian Ogilvy, Simon Dutton, Val Kilmer (God help us) and the earlier incarnations - George Sanders, Louis Hayward and Hugh Sinclair to name a few. I have just over 170 novels and not just UK versions but US, French and Dutch titles.
Was never a fan of the Bond novels and to this day have still not read one cover to cover!

cyberrich: Isn't part of that Hunt/Lumley screen test seen in the opening titles? I'd love to have seen Collins' Gambit audition too. Wow!! There must be some photos somewhere.

Yes it is. The scene where Joanna has longer hair is from the screen test, before she opted for that famous Purdey cut.

I'm not sure about Action TV but the significant Avengers articles in Time Screen are these:

Issue 2:
The Cybernaught Analysis
Albert Fennell – A tribute by Dave Rogers
TNA episode guide by Andrew Pixley
General article on Christmas episodes (include “Too Many Christmas Trees”)

Issue 8: Avengers Cars



Issue 13: “A Day In Avengerland” – location guide
Issue 19: List of the work of Brian Clemens
Issue 20: Interview / obituary Tony Williamson
Issue 21: Telefantasy in comics (includes Avengers)

They often appear on eBay at fairly reasonable prices.
Purdey certainly looks Top Avenger Girl here
