In the first episode of ABC's new series of "The Avengers" tonight, the sky is literally the limit. Steed and Mrs Peel, played by Patrick Macnee and Diana Rigg, join the British Venusian Society which plans to land a satellite on Venus. But the programme title - "From Venus With Love" - does not mean that the series has gone over to Science Fiction. True, the BVS fears that mysterious ray attacks which turn people white as they kill them may herald an invasion from Venus. But with The Avengers nothing is ever quite what it seems, and a spokesman said; "The new series will continue to deal with the super-normal rather than the supernatural". Steed and Emma have some fairly hair-raising adventures in every kind of setting from a graveyard to an optician's consulting room before they discover the source of the ray.
