Steed's tie for much of the film appears to be a Queen's Dragoon Guards tie. He also wears a solid crimson tie, a solid orange tie and a navy tie with a crest that is either a shield or three feathers, so it might be a Carlton Club tie (which might explain why he said he had been blackballed from Boodle's in The Charmers).
The moves in the chess match between the characters Emma Peel and John Steed are the same as in the match between Roy Batty and Tyrell in Blade Runner (1982):
Q-R5 N-N4 P-N4 P-QN3 N-Q5 P-QB3 N-N7 ch QxN mate
Another reference to the film is during the fight between Sir August De Wynter and John Steed, when Sir August says "Time to die". The same line Roy Batty says to Rick Deckard during their fight in Blade Runner.
