  • Notes

    • The makers of The Avengers wanted Steed to carry a gun. Patrick Macnee refused because he had seen so many friends die in World War II and never wanted to touch a gun again. When asked what he thought Steed should carry, Macnee replied, 'An umbrella'. So Steed carries an umbrella with a concealed sword in it and it is left to his sidekicks to deal with guns.
