Legacy of Death The Killing Fields
of Series 6 (1968–9)


The Avengers

Page 3

These pages list all the people killed in the Tara King episodes of The Avengers; as well as the people doing the killing, and their modi operandi.

Speaking trivially, Homicide and Old Lace is the most bloodthirsty episode, in which nine people are unceremoniously dispatched, although four are in footage recycled from Emma Peel episodes — so the mantle is passed to Have Guns — Will Haggle and the appropriately-named Killer with eight unfortunates apiece. There are no episodes in which no-one dies at all, although False Witness, Invasion of the Earthmen and The Morning After only have one each.

The guide is in three parts, use the links below to navigate them (or use those at the bottom of the pages).
