Dame Diana Rigg

On Her Majesty’s Secret Service

Episode 7
Saturday, 12 March 2016

— I find her fascinating. But, she needs a psychiatrist, not me.

— What she needs is a man… to dominate her! To make love to her enough to make her love him! A man like you!

Sean Connery’s gone, never to return (never!), and so we find ourselves with a long-running film franchise starring Australian heartthrob George Lazenby and his amazing seven-film contract. What could possibly go wrong?

In the meantime, we discuss overworked foley artists, Diana Rigg’s fabulous breasts (repeatedly) and Richard’s prepubescent frisson encountering a shirtless Lazenby at a 1970s dinner party. All while continually preventing James from making endless Doctor Who references. Oh, James.

Epic

Episode 44
Saturday, 26 September 2020

– You’re not feeling the part, Mrs Peel.

– I have a feeling I will be feeling it.

This month, we celebrate the life of the late Dame Diana Rigg, who left us earlier this month. And we do this by watching one of the most beloved — and one of the most disliked — episodes of The Avengers. It’s Epic, in which Mrs Peel is kidnapped by three washed-up actors playing two washed-up actors and a washed-up director, who are awful enough to believe that it’s fun to watch Mrs Peel being repeatedly threatened with certain death. And, turns out, it is.

A Touch of Brimstone

Episode 45
Saturday, 31 October 2020

– I’ve come here to appeal to you, Mister Cartney.

– You certainly do that!

This month, we all don our flattest Regency trousers and head underground for an evening of wrestling, wassailing and wenching to support the admirable cause of bringing down the British Government. And Peter Wyngarde is here too, looking as devilishly handsome as ever. It’s Part 2 of our Diana Rigg marathon: the 1966 Avengers episode A Touch of Brimstone.
