mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm...Diana Rigg was a hottie. Love all those old Avengers episodes. Good stuff.

Too much makeup in this still, but it does little to diminish her beauty. Still a handsome woman. And talented and game to put up with some of what the AVENGERS folks asked of her. (The lesbian manager of one of my bookstore gigs had a large photo of Rigg in an AVENGERS catsuit up on her office door during her incumbency. And who could blame her?)

Some of the "martial arts" scenes in those old shows are almost funny now, but she looked good, anyway.

When I was a teenager in the 'sixties I thought Patrick Macnee had the best job in the world. Remember Emma's "Queen of Sin" get-up in the A TOUCH OF BRIMSTONE episode? I do.

My goodness she is beautiful. Another actress that has the same aura about her is Emily Joyce from the Britcom MY HERO.

Mrs Peel, always Mrs Peel !!!

As if Diana didn't deserve to be known for all what she did !

Whoever thinks that she's old is wrong ; she is her soul's age, and I'm sure that she's got an angel's soul. Angels are always young ! :)

She was wonderful in everything she did, but the image that's burned into my mind is that of Mrs. Peel for better or worse.
