1. Ah, thank you for posting this. Yes, AOBTD to be sure.

    I was 8 or 9 years old when I discovered The Avengers here on the ABC network. The so called “British Invasion” was still all the rage. I was, and still am, a rabid fan. Emma Peel and her Lotus Elan; Steed in his Bentley – Bowler hat and walking stick at hand. Everything a pre-pubescent boy could ask for. This was, no doubt, the very beginning of my love affair with British sports cars and dark haired women – and my everlasting connection between the two.

  2. Oh how I wish I was that rope! wow, since even before I knew about hot women Emma Peel fascinated me. most any other woman tied up like that would be trashy but this is almost like a work of art. Closest I can get to seeing her now is her daughter in the Detectorists. Definitely one of the best ever! Got to find out where I can watch some Avengers episodes now.

  3. Sigh. Question: What did she say about Steed to Joanna Lumley as they passed on the stairs after Mrs. Peel’s husband was found in the jungle and she was leaving the show?

      1. I was wrong. It was Linda Thorson who came after Diana Rigg. Lumley came later in a restart of the series.

        She said: “He likes his tea stirred anti-clockwise.”

  4. As someone wittier than I said on another blog: “She was responsible for more spilled seed than Archer Daniel Midland.”

  5. Best hope nobody sends a link for that pic to a Japanese friend. The blog will be slammed for days, heh, heh, heh.
