The "batman" referred to in the title was not of the Caped Crusader variety, but instead the former valet to John Steed. When the man in question, who after WWII worked as a humble printer's assistant, leaves behind an estate worth over half a million pounds, Steed investigates. It turns out that the dead man was linked with an unscupulous banker (Andre Morell) who will stop at nothing to corner Britain's high-tech industry. Written by Roger Marshall, "Death of a Batman" first aired in England on October 26, 1963; the episode made its American cable TV bow on March 11, 1991. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide

I've been an Avengers fan for a long time, but have never seen the original series with Honor Blackman. I started watching the show when Dianna Rigg joined the cast. The crimes being being committed in this original series are a lot more "ordinary" than the bizarre cases that John Steed and Emma Peele investigated. The scenes are sometimes so dark, it's hard to see what's happening. The sound quality is poor and has to be turned up loud to catch all of the dialog. And what is with the manic bongo playing in all of the fight scenes?
