Avengers Cast

Steed and Mrs. Peel look for a corpse that isn't there. Disappointed, the two of them describe a spectacular fight scene, then give up and sit on a sofa - only to discover that under the bear-skin rug in front of them contains a rather shapely and very 'live' body, much to Steed's delight...

Patrick Macnee (John Steed), Diana Rigg(Emma Peel), Body (Valerie Van Ost)

Directed by James Hill

*This short film was shot on the set of 'Honey For the Prince'; it was meant as a colour test for the new series, but ended up being transmitted in America in 1966 as a trailer for season 5

*This was originally a twenty-minute 'mini-episode'; up until recently, only a three-minute version existed, but in September 2002, a ten-minute version was discovered in a California film archive
