Shame-I loved the Avengers. Good age though. 93
He always seemed to be in my life. I was delighted when he showed up on the Oasis video! RIP.
Wow.... 93..... well.... but a shame..... always used to watch "The Avengers!"
Loved the Avengers, too. I had an Emma Peel doll, complete with leather catsuit.
I too loved The Avengers. Another one gone!
DT I was so envious of Emma Peel's jumpsuits. I made a couple but would have loved a leather one!
Blimey. If that's still in the attic you could treat yourself to a decent weekend break on the proceeds of flogging it.
Patrick McNee as John Steed - a one-off character, and so swinging sixties. More than a few nods to him in Austin Powers. RIP.
Another figure from my youth gone
I hate getting older
I'm not reading any more RIP threads just in case I appear in the title
Heheheh. Now I'm tempted to start a thread on rip tides just to get you spraying your Cornflakes all over the monitor.
Oddly, I thought I had read of his demise years ago. I did like the Avengers as a kid, but it is pretty unwatchable now.
My Dad was an avid Avengers fan, although not, I suspect, because of Patrick McNee. For him, Honor Blackman encased in black leather and riding around on a big Triumph 'killed two birds with one stone'. For me, the Avengers was like listening to Round the Horn; I found Honor Blackman, and later, Diana Rigg, exciting to watch but I was too young to know why.
There were some repeats recently, extremely dated but still watchable I thought.
