    I watched that show when I was a kid - loved it along with the 60's version of Batman. He had a helluva good run going until 93.

    The chemistry between Steed(Macnee) and Peel (Diana Rigg) was so suttle. It was awesome.

    I'll add my condolences and thoughts here. Growing up, the Avengers was by far my favourite TV show and I never missed it - I watched it in reruns multiple times and it was always entertaining. Bless his soul and peace and comfort to his family and friends.
