More

John Steed is a gentlemanly British spy who appeared in the TV series The Avengers from 1961 to 1969 and The New Avengers from 1976 to 1977. 

Steed was known for his rapier wit, stylish suits and his omnipresent umbella and bowler hat - the hallmarks of the quintessential British gentleman. He also had a fondess for champagne and vintage cars, driving numerous of these including his trademark 1930's blower Bentleys.

Steed was aided in his adventures by a number of partners, most notably a succession of attractive and independent ladies; Mrs. Catherine Gale (Honor Blackman), Mrs. Emma Peel (Diana Rigg) and Tara King (Linda Thorson). When he returned in The New Avengers, he was assisted by two new partners, a male agent named Mike Gambit (Gareth Hunt) and a female spy called Purdey (Joanna Lumley). He had also retired his vintage cars in favour of a new racing Jaguar XJ12C, but still wore his bowler hat. Steed was played by the British actor Patrick Macnee.
