Yes the Avengers all those years ago. It was of its time and Diana Rigg was excellent. RIP

Chapeau Melon et Bottes de Cuir was what they called The Avengers in France, it doesn't have the same ring.

I'm very rarely moved when someone well-known dies. It's the natural order of things and, although sad for their loved ones, I always think I have no business having feelings of sadness for someone I never met.

Diana Rigg, though. A special person and I actually feel quite sad at her passing. She always struck me as a true lady and fine human being.

Her death even made the last item on TF1 news tonight.

Very well known in France as was John Thaw, and many others whose names wont come to me at present.

I know this from the reactions of people who come into my house where the TV is muted but the images of all the old repeats on Sky are visible.

A good friend of mine who is 45ish (a gentleman never asks!) has always modelled her whole wardrobe and look around the late Diana Rigg

I'll start another thread & not divert this one.

I loved The Avengers, thought she was great in the Bond film and also The Game of Thrones. I did feel rather sad when I read she'd died.
