   According to Pretenders fan and fellow researcher, Robert Kacsich: The Avengers episode that was used for the Don't Get Me Wrong video is episode #25 of season #5, the last of the episodes with Diana Rigg. The clips were taken from the end of that episode. In the first scene, Steed looks out of the window to watch how Emma Peel departs. In the second scene, he welcomes her successor Tara King, whose image was replaced by Chrissie's in the video.
