Episode-specific articles

TV Times issue 270, 30 December 1960, pages 1 and 6, Unknown, Unknown, England.  Previewing the first episode of The Avengers.
Note - this edition was for the ABC region only, and this covered the North West of England. The fact that this magazine was received by the library on 29th of December 1960 and has a picture on the front hints at the fact that these shots (and by implication the 'market' and 'sleuthing mac' shots of Ian Hendry, Patrick Macnee and Ingrid Hafner which have appeared in various books and magazines over the years - see pages 16,19 and 23 of Dave Rogers' 'The Ultimate Avengers', for example) were either taken in Chelsea on the 20th of December 1960 when filming took place for an insert featuring the gunning-down of Dr Keel's fiancée, Peggy, or that there was a publicity photo session from which came these various photos and the images used in the opening and closing titles of the show. Any ideas?

Manchester Evening News, 7 January, page 7, Max North's Telereview, ?, England.
A GIRL who hates illness and says she could never be a nurse in private life will play the nurse-receptionist in ABC's new 60-minute crime series, "The Avengers", which begins to-night. She is 23-year old Ingrid Hafner "born in London but with an Austrian father" who played a nurse in several episodes of Ian Hendry's previous series, "Police Surgeon". Ian Hendry was immediately signed for "The Avengers" when "Police Surgeon" ended its run and now plays the part of a doctor who is drawn into a crusade against crime by the murder of his fiancée. Patrick Macnee has a regular spot in the series as a professional crime-fighter.
