Containing Multitudes Since 2004
Excellent image Tom. 'The Avengers' was just great. They are showing it again, late on BBC4.
The Greatest TV Sex Symbol, and nobody else is close, in my book. Steed and Peel's repartee was a high point in '60s culture because it reached such a wide audience, with staying power way beyond its own era. Take one Lotus Elan, add some leather and guns, and what else does a growing boy, or girl, for that matter, need? Oh, yeah, that spiky dog collar!! Mrs. Peel had brains, class, and could kick yer ass. BCNU
I once saw Ms Rigg in a theatre production of Antony and Cleopatra. She made one entrance wearing nothing but a towel. At this point, there was a commotion a few seats down from me, and I later discovered that a member of the audience had suffered a stroke.As we say in South London, FWOOOAARRRR!!!!
The older Dame Diana gets, the sexier she becomes. No argument.
Love her. Love her, love her. She was an icon of my youth- what I wouldn't have given to have been as cultured, beautiful, well-dressed, and most of all British! Alas. But it is so good to know that she's out there.I read that she got the Emma Peel gig at the age of 19.
And hooray for her daughter Rachel Stirling ("Tipping The Velvet").
She'll always be The Queen of Sin.
