Default Worth Saving...

Re The Avengers: I wasn't aware that virtually all of the first-series episodes had been lost; my understanding was that Ian Hendry was something of a notable star at that time, and the program was originally built around him for that reason (Steed came on later, and quite a different figure at that!)...

Makes one glad that Honor Blackman's episodes fared better; especially as we Americans originally met Mrs Peel, long before we got to know Mrs Gale!
