Sorry to read that Dame Diana Rigg has passed away aged 82.
Our sincere condolences to her family.
I heard this on the news driving home from work Scoop. Such sad sad news. Diana's Emma Peel was such a huge part of my Sixties childhood. I feel as though part of it has now disappeared. RIP Diana.
So weird. A few days ago, I was watching some of the early Avengers with Honor Blackman (who I think is highly underrated) with a friend, and our guest was his cat, who he dubbed Mrs. Peel! So of course we discussed Diana Rigg at length. Who knew she would be dead within a week?
I loved The Avengers in the 1960s, and still do. Diana Rigg was terrific as Emma Peel. One of my top three TV shows of all time (the others are Thunderbirds and Doctor Who) - I shall miss the wonderful Mrs Peel. Thank you Diana Rigg, for all the pleasure you gave the world. RIP.
