I assume that the video for XTC's "Mayor of Simpleton" (which got many spins on CFNY back in the day) was inspired by The Avengers.

Diana Rigg was John Steed's second partner after Honour Blackman. I don't think the Blackman episodes ever aired in Canada. My personal favourite Avengers episode was the Cybernaughts. Robots in suits and sunglasses who karate chopped their victims to death.
