"The Avengers" combined pop art, fashion, tradition, modernity, high Englishness, feminism, espionage, sadism, fetishism and much more. The programme was simultaneously satirical, commercial and self parodic. It is claimed as the highest grossing British television export ever, with sales to 120 countries. Here Toby Miller focuses upon the texts of the series, their broadcast contexts and the interpretations that followed. The chapters cover a basic industrial history, key themes from episodes (pop, fashion, sex, genre and postmodernism) through to stories of its fans. Overall Miller teases out just what made the series so popular.
