 Diana Rigg (D)

Awwww geeez. Diana Rigg has died at the age of 82.

For a generation of lads growing up in the 1960s, there was no sexier sight than Emma Peel in The Avengers.

RIP pretty lady.

Ah that's poop news. RIP. Was a bit of a legend and was still putting in top performances in GoT.

Avengers was a classic. If you grew up in the 80s/90s you got the reruns so we didn't miss out.

Honor Blackman as Cathy Gale was a hard act to follow but Diana Rigg managed it. It was never the same after she left I remember it took me a wee while to twig that Emma Peel was a play on the words 'M(an) Appeal'.

I'd forgotten about Honor Blackman - she was class too.

Saw her on All Creatures too. Surprisingly good for C5. Felt more like ITV material.

So sad.

Anybody remember her in “Mother Love” about 30 years ago - she was outstanding and deservedly won an award.

RIP

Piece of trivia, her second husband was nephew of the founder of the SAS.

Had a struggle trying to get equal pay. She’s quoted as saying Patrick MacNee never supported her.

Great theme for the Avengers

RIP, Diana


Also, former boxer, Alan Minter passed away today too

Hard to argue with that, LA. 🙂

And here's the incontrovertible evidence to back your assessment.
