Dressed to Kill
The killing fields
of Series 3 (1963–4)


The Avengers

These pages list all the people killed in the 1963/4 series of The Avengers; as well as the people doing the killing, and their modi operandi.

Speaking trivially, The Little Wonders is the most bloodthirsty episode, in which seven people are gunned down, most of them by a nurse with a machine gun. The Outside-In Man may be the only episode in which no-one dies.
