The Avengers S2 E14 - Dead on Course


The Avengers is a spy-fi British television series created in 1961. The Avengers initially focused on Dr. David Keel (Ian Hendry) and his assistant John Steed (Patrick Macnee). Hendry left after the first series and Steed became the main character, partnered with a succession of assistants. Steed's most famous assistants were intelligent, stylish and assertive women: Cathy Gale (Honor Blackman), Emma Peel (Diana Rigg), and later Tara King (Linda Thorson). Later episodes increasingly incorporated elements of science fiction and fantasy, parody and British eccentricity. The Avengers ran from 1961 until 1969, screening as one-hour episodes its entire run.

Dead on Course is the fourteenth episode of the second series of the 1960s cult British spy-fi television series The Avengers, starring Patrick Macnee. It originally aired on ABC on 29 December 1962. The episode was directed by Richmond Harding and written by Eric Paice.

Could Be Anything (click to see category list)It was fortunate for the few survivors of a suspicious passenger jet crash that the accident took place near a convent—or was it? The real puzzle is that there was more than one crash at the same location in Ireland. Hmmm, it wouldn't have anything to do with the bank consignments being carried on the planes, would it?
