Girl on the Trapeze:
Season 1, Episode 6.
Written by Dennis Spooner.
The earliest surviving episode in full but this one does not have Patrick Macnee as John Steed.
The absence of Steed does not hurt this episode one bit as it works very well with just David Keel along with Carol Wilson.
Extremely enjoyable as Keel investigates about the titular girl.

On The Avengers Forever site read about the missing season 1 episode Hunt The Man Down:
http://theavengers.tv/forever/keel-11.htm

Written by site owner David K Smith, it says that the identity of the actor playing Frank Preston remained a mystery.

However other websites have stated that Frank Preston was played by Nicholas Selby.

The Avengers Forever page on Hunt the Man Down was last modified in 2006 and the site have stopped regular updates in 2008 so perhaps Selby being the actor who played Frank Preston was something that was revealed since then.

Incidentally Selby was offered to play Alastair Lethbridge-Stewart before it was eventually given to Nicholas Courtney in Doctor Who: The Web of Fear.

Courtney himself appeared on The Avengers shortly before the aforementioned Doctor Who serial, in the season 5 finale Mission: Highly Improbable.

The Frighteners:
Season 1, Episode 15.
Along with the Girl On The Trapeze & the first act of the first episode Hot Snow, The Frighteners is what is left of the first season.
Interesting the frighteners using the euphemism of massaging.
The Frighteners felt incoherent in places but quite a trick Keel and Steed pulled at the end.

Mr Teddy Bear:
Season 2 opener.
The debut of Honor Blackman as Cathy Gale. Even though this was the first of her episodes it was actually her sixth episode in production order which explained why she looked used to playing her here. In any case this was a pretty good debut episode for Cathy.
The title character is the villain of this episode and he is very creepy and it is amazing that when he eventually met his comeuppance he acts like a wimp!

Propellant 23:
Season 2, Episode 2.
Guest stars Nicholas Courtney and Geoffrey Palmer. Originally broadcast on October 1962, Courtney and Palmer would be reunited later for Doctor Who and The Silurians (1970) in which Courtney was in his regular role as the Brigadier and Palmer a guest star.
Here in Propellant 23, Courtney does not appear very much but Palmer makes for a good villain.
Jolly good fun regarding the episode title propellant which is a flask of a secret new rocket fuel and amusing scene in a lingerie shop.

The Decapod:
Season 2, Episode 3.
Debut of Julie Stevens as Venus Smith.
Guest stars Philip Madoc who sadly only passed away in March this year.
The premise of a murdered girl and the involvement of the President of a Balkan Republic might looked interesting on paper but it seemed to got muddled on-screen.

Bullseye:
Season 2, Episode 4.
Enjoyable episode concerning gunrunning and stockholders of a prominent British manufacturer being murdered.
Considering that she was absent in the previous episode The Decapod, Bullseye was quite an enjoyable episode for Cathy with Steed not appearing very much.

Mission To Montreal:
Season 2, Episode 5.
The first of three appearances by Jon Rollason as Dr Martin King.
Guest stars Mark Eden, John Bennett, Malcolm Taylor, Terence Woodfield and Pamela Ann Davy.
A rather ho-hum affair involving a famous actress, a microfilm and a cruiseliner.
Barely passable as it was quite muddled in a lot of areas.

The Removal Men:
Season 2, Episode 6.
Guest stars Edwin Richfield.
The episode title is a euphemism for assassins who are out to kill a woman for knowing too much on a certain information.
The episode felt bland with the resolution not very satisfying.

The Mauritius Penny:
Season 2, Episode 7.
Written by Malcolm Hulke and Terrance D(i)cks.
Overall a pretty enjoyable episode.
There is one notable aspect of this episode and that is with Cathy sneaking into a meeting of a neo-Fascist movement. This scene would later be reused for the Doctor Who season 12 opener and Fourth Doctor debut Robot with Sarah Jane Smith filling in the Cathy spot in the scene. The reason why the Doctor Who serial has the same scene as The Mauritius Penny is because it was written by The Mauritius Penny co-writer Terrance D(i)cks although he would later state it wasn’t intentional, it just simply remain in his consciousness without memory of where it came from.
The Mauritius Penny’s other writer Malcolm Hulke had also written for Doctor Who but not the aforementioned Doctor Who serial as it was a solo effort from D(i)cks.
Ironically not only did Hulke not write the Fourth Doctor’s debut but he did not write any of the Fourth Doctor stories as he stopped writing Doctor Who just prior to the Fourth Doctor’s arrival.
Another irony is that The Mauritius Penny guest starred David Langton and he was one actor who was approached to play Alistair Lethbridge-Stewart in Doctor Who but refused with the part eventually going to Nicholas Courtney with the character eventually becoming the Brigadier. Robot was one Doctor Who serial that Courtney appeared as the Brigadier. Therefore the irony is that if Langton had accepted the offer to play Lethbridge-Stewart in Doctor Who then he would have been the only actor to appear in both The Mauritius Penny & Robot.
