The New Avengers (UK)

Seven years after The Avengers ended, ITV launched The New Avengers. It tells the same sort of tales - elite British agents called on to deal with the nastiest criminals. This series focused a little less on the truly bizarre and more on Steed's past as an operative. Together with the younger agents Purdey and Gambit he takes on menaces to himself and to England from all over the world.

    With Skyfall (2012) and Spectre (2015/I), Ralph Fiennes became the 007th [= seventh] major actor or actress who has appeared in both the 'James Bond' and 'The Avengers' universes, the latter being the English spy one and not the comic super-heroes one. From the original television series The Avengers (UK), three actors appeared in Bond movies: Honor Blackman played Pussy Galore in Goldfinger, Patrick Macnee portrayed Sir Godfrey Tibbett in A View to a Kill, and Diana Rigg played Tracy Di Vicenzo in On Her Majesty's Secret Service. The latter film also featured as The English Girl actress Joanna Lumley who would later appear in The New Avengers (UK) which also starred Macnee. Whilst Nadim Sawalha appeared in both The Avengers cinema film as well as two Bond movies: The Living Daylights and The Spy Who Loved Me. Fiennes actually appeared in The Avengers cinema movie co-starring with former James Bond Sean Connery who played the villain Sir August de Wynter. Of these seven actors, both Fiennes and Macnee have portrayed The Avengers' character of John Steed, in the theatrical film and television series respectively, with the latter also voicing the Invisible Jones character in The Avengers cinema movie. In this 1998 cinema film, John Steed (Ralph Fiennes) and Emma Peel (Uma Thurman) get across the frozen river by 'walking' on the surface inside inflatable plastic bubbles which is similar to how James Bond gets aboard Ernst Stavro Blofeld (Charles Gray)'s oil rig in Connery's final official series Bond movie Diamonds Are Forever.
