    Shame-I loved the Avengers. Good age though. 93
     
  3. He always seemed to be in my life. I was delighted when he showed up on the Oasis video! RIP.

    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.

    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.
