If you think youve read the definitive account
of THE AVENGERS lost year... think again!
Two Against the Underworld brings together eight years
of research and combines and updates two previously published Hidden Tiger
books (The Strange Case of the Missing Episodes and With
Umbrella, Scotch and Cigarettes) to tell the story of The Avengers
from both sides of the camera, and is now further revised following the
recovery of the episode Tunnel of Fear.
Authors Richard McGinlay, Alan Hayes and Alys Hayes lift
the lid on all 26 Series 1 episodes. Comprehensive chapters detail the
narratives, often with script extracts, as well
as the production, transmission and reception of each episode, and the
talented personnel who were involved in making them.
The creation of The Avengers, the departure of Ian
Hendry, the series' destiny, and the mystery of the missing episodes, are
explored in a series of essays, each of which has been revisited
to incorporate fresh information.
Avengers scriptwriter Roger Marshall and Neil
Hendry, who runs his uncle Ian Hendry's official website, both contribute
forewords to this volume. The book also boasts lavish black-and-white
illustrations by artist Shaqui Le Vesconte and 70 pages of appendices that
deal in depth with the unproduced episodes of Series 1, Keel and Steed's
further adventures in the comic strip The Drug Pedlar and the novel
Too Many Targets, and much more.
