I have been a fan of the 1960s British TV series The Avengers for as long as I can remember. Emma Peel is one of my idols. I found myself drawing comparisons between that show to the 1980s series Scarecrow and Mrs. King, and the potential for stories became immediately apparent. Produced decades and an ocean apart, these two spy shows created similar tensions between their main characters. In my stories I have elected to bring the later show back in time to the period of The Avengers, since the 1960s is so much a part of The Avengers‘ mystique (in fan fiction, you can bend the “canon”).
