Synopsis by Hal Erickson

Though its title suggests a spoof of The Man from U.N.C.L.E., this Avengers episode actually concerns a young woman named Georgie Price-Jones (Liz Fraser), who for reasons unknown is pretending to be Emma Peel. This is annoying enough, but when several people of Georgie's acquaintance turn up dead, things really take a nasty turn. Meanwhile, the real Emma Peel is in the clutches of a mercenary art dealer, who intends to auction her off to the highest bidder. Chock full of clever inside jokes and snappy one-liners, "The Girl from Auntie" was written by Roger Marshall; it was first shown in England on January 22, 1966, and in America on June 6 of that same year.
