The New Avengers was a British secret agent fantasy adventure television series produced during 1976 and 1977. It is a sequel to the 1960s series, The Avengers which was created by Sydney Newman, and the new version was developed by original series producers Brian Clemens and Albert Fennell. The series picks up the adventures of John Steed ( Patrick Macnee ) as he and his team of "Avengers" fight evil plots and world domination. Whereas in the original series Steed had almost always been partnered with a woman, in the new series he had two partners: Mike Gambit ( Gareth Hunt ), a top agent, crack marksman and trained martial artist and Purdey ( Joanna Lumley ), a former trainee with The Royal Ballet (which she claimed was where she learned the high-kicking skills she frequently used in the series) who was an amalgam of many of the best talents from Steed's female partners in The Avengers.
