The Avengers – The Complete Series 6 on Blu-ray in October

12 September 2015

John Steed (Patrick Macnee) and his new secret agent partner Tara King (Linda Thorson) embark on a string of crime solving adventures in the final series of the original cult TV series The Avengers.

Previously available only on DVD, this new box set includes the complete and Uncut series 6, on Blu-ray for the first time with a wealth of special features.

The Avengers – The Complete Series 6 will be released in the UK on Blu-ray on 5 October 2015 by Studiocanal at a currently unconfirmed RRP, but Series 5 retailed at £79.99 so we're taking that as a likely benchmark for now.
