This 5th period of the series is shot more than fifteen years later, and Patrick Macnee no longer feeling credible in the wrestling scenes, we saw appearing on our screens at Christmas 1976, a trio, steed serving as mentor for a young couple: PURDEY (the particularity of which is not to have a surname), and Mike GAMBIT, loaded on the muscular side of the investigations. Purdey and Gambit's relations had to recall those that Steed had with his past partners. But the realism of the new episodes (deliberately avoided by the old seasons), the disappearance of the typically “British” side which made the charm of “Melon hat and leather boots”, as well as cash problems caused the loss of the series.

Hat Melon and Leather Boots (The New Avengers) is a British television series which was broadcast for the first time in 1976. The series features a group of characters who fight against the crime and the forces of evil using gadgets High-tech and skills in martial arts.

The main character in the series is John Steed, an elegant and refined British secret agent who wears a melon hat and leather boots. Steed is accompanied by a series of female partners, including Emma Peel, an expert in martial arts and science, and Tara King, a young agent of American origin.

Together, Steed and his partners face a variety of criminals, spies and super-lives, using their intelligence, their tricks and their fighter talents to defeat them. The series was greeted for its humor, its elegance and its very choregraphed action scenes.

Over the seasons, the series has introduced new characters and new enemies, offering viewers an exciting and entertaining adventure. Although the series lasted only two seasons, it has become a classic for British television and has been broadcast in many countries around the world.
