Even darker than you thought

The Emma Peel-era of 'The Avengers' was one of my favourite TV series in the late 1980s*, and not solely for the leather catsuit.  The quirky combination of sci-fi, suspense, mannered wordplay and, okay, Diana Rigg in a leather catsuit, all fascinated me.  However, I never thought to question the title – why 'The Avengers'?  Few episodes seemed to be particularly about vengeance.

*: i.e. I'm not old enough to remember the first time it was broadcast, in the mid-Sixties.
