    rip Patrick. An effortless talent. By all accounts a lovely chap.
    Memories of the 60s.... hearing the theme music coming up the stairs when I was in bed as a child. The Avengers was a benchmark series for kids at school to discuss and emulate.
    Watching an episode right now on True Entertainment .... with a young John Cleese, Jimmy Jewell and Bernard Cribbins. Good fun.

      Me too. These repeats have really made my evenings over the last couple of months. I nearly got 'something in my eye' when Diana Rigg went off with her re-discovered husband.

        Sad news - Steed was ace - made suit wearing cool

          He also designed his own outfits, which makes him even cooler.

              Very sad but a cracking innings. One of those actors not unlike Peter Cushing who could appear in any old crud and still come out of it with dignity. From the many interviews he did over the years he came across as someone who never took himself too seriously and was surprisingly candid about his life and upbringing. He'll be remembered fondly for years to come.

                Indeed.



                Remember being in hospital as a kid having my tonsils out - and hearing the Avengers theme kicking off in the men's ward next door and the nurses not letting us get up out of bed to go and watch it.

                  This doesn't happen anymore does it? The kids of today don't know what they're missing. When I had mine done they thought they might as well do my younger sister's at the same time so we both went in.

                    I was jealous because tonsil patients got ice cream 4 dayz.
                    Still got my tonsils and my appendix. All they managed to get from me was my foreskin.

                      I remember I received a 'Dukes of Hazzard Wrist Racer' as a present for my troubles when I had mine done. Was quite chuffed as I'd been after one for a while having been tempted by the funky ads on TV. The only downer is they had run out of the 'General Lee' so I ended up with Roscoe's police car but that was a minor quibble. Finding this pic has made me want one all over again!

                          My sister and I got one of those new-fangled plastic transistor radios in bright red and bright yellow colours.

                              You lucky bastards. I got a few comics and then they chopped my hoodie off. Afterwards the hospital educational specialist made me write an essay so i wouldn´t miss any education.
