One of the most exciting events of last year was the discovery of the missing season one episode of The Avengers, The Tunnel of Fear. As Spy Vibers probably are aware, many programs in the UK, including The Avengers and Doctor Who, were routinely wiped so the studio could save money by reusing the tapes. Media archeologists and conservationists are always on the hunt to find materials and, against all odds, long-lost bits of film still turn up sometimes. Nobody expected to see early Avengers unearthed, that's for sure! With this new discover, Avengers scholar Alan Hayes has released revised edition of his book, Two Against the Underworld. The book is an in-depth guide to season one of the series. Spy Vibers can pick it up in paperback, hardcover, and ebook editions. More info at Hidden Tiger Books at Lulu. Also available on the site is Avengerworld, an omnibus celebration of The Avengers (I wrote the Afterword). More about Two Against the Underworld from the press release: "Two Against the Underworld brings together eight years of research to tell the story of The Avengers from both sides of the camera. It has now been further revised following the recovery of the episode Tunnel of Fear. The authors lift the lid on all 26 Series 1 episodes. Comprehensive chapters detail the narratives in extended synopsis form, as well as the production, transmission and reception of each episode, and the talented personnel who made them. The creation of The Avengers, Ian Hendry's departure, the series’ destiny and the mystery of the missing episodes are explored in a series of essays, each of which has been revised. Avengers writer Roger Marshall and Neil Hendry both contribute forewords to this volume. The book also boasts black-and-white illustrations by 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."
