|Steed and Cathy Gale|
Dr. David Keel (Ian Hendry): Dr. Keel was investigating the murder of his wife when he first encountered Steed, who was impressed enough with Keel that he asked Keel to continue solving crimes with him.
Venus Smith (Julie Stevens): Steed's second partner, apparently attracted to Steed. Venus was a singer when she wasn't assisting Steed, which may be why she only assisted Steed six times.
|Steed and Mrs. Peel|
Emma Peel (Diana Rigg): The partner best known to US Avengers fans. Mrs. Peel's husband went missing while flying over the Amazon prior to her teaming up with Steed. Beautiful, self-assured, intelligent, and an accomplished martial artist, Mrs. Peel lasted the longest of Steed's partners.
Tara King (Linda Thorson): Tara teamed up with Steed and Mrs. Peel, fresh out of training in the British Secret Service, and shortly became Steed's new partner (Mrs. Peel's husband had been found alive and rescued – and was apparently Steed's physical double). More innocent and inexperienced (though better trained) than Mrs. Peel or Cathy Gale, Tara seemed to have much more of a crush on Steed than his previous female partners.
