'The Avengers' Series 5, episode 21...white coupe ARF956D

Several episodes of The Avengers on ITV Hub, folks.....Hurry up & catch the above episode as it is scheduled to drop off the programme list at 11pm this evening. It's a good episode where millionaires are being blackmailed & the coupe is heavily featured in the last quarter, I think. I have seen a clip on YouTube & a screen shot off Dave's wonderful site, but this is the first time that I have seen this episode & it's in highish definition. I'd be interested to hear expert comment on the car as I thought all 'D' plate cars would have been straight-6..........this one, however, has rimbellishers on steel wheels & twin exhausts...
As well as the 'King of Cool' - forget Steve McQueen......Patrick Macnee is yer man, it has the delectable Mrs. Peel having a fight in a river - worth watching for that alone... :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

D is 66, so V6 cars were introduced in October. Unfortunately it doesn’t look like the car survived :(

Just imagine the number of watcher views with the Topic title
"Mrs Peel having a fight in a river"

Thanks for the heads up (smiley face)

Your also spot on with Patrick Macnee - great casting there!

They're being shown on ITV4, I think, Terry - at odd hours such as teatime. It can be viewed on 'catch-up'......in this instance google ITV Hub, log in or register & you can watch it through a laptop or tablet etc........presumably your TV if you have a fancy system. But you do only have until 11pm this evening as it will then be withdrawn... :(

Sad to think the car doesn't exist anymore, Jim - & thanks for clarifying the switchover date to V6...

Thanks, Ronnie... :) :) :)

It was shown on Wednesday, 18th October, a week ago, Terry........hence only being able to watch it on 'catch-up'...
