Fabulous news hope they find more - watched the Tunnel Of Fear reconstruction last night on DVD extras before I heard the news (bit slow on the up-take ) decided to do a search as I didn't expect anything new but yay!!..whats happpening in comicland?
I'm more of a Black N White era Avengers fan and I did write a script in the kind of format the show originally had -3 acts not so fantastical as the later episodes -more of a Cold War vibe - also wanted to explore characters origins as they all have an interesting backstory especially Steed , Gale and Peel so I tried to get a bit of that in .. http://hipsville365ad.blogspot.co.uk/2016/05/avenged.html
I will try and get around to completing a "Knights Tale" the written side of it at least after Iwrite second part of latest Star Wars thing - where Emma and Honey West are caught up in a battle royale -a prelude to The Superlative Seven which starred Donald Sutherland and Lobot (Lobot was in quite a few Avengers come to think of it) Here's Dame Diana talking about her experiences on the show.
Very short excerpt of interview from 1964 with Honor in Cathy Gale gear about getting her role in Goldfinger (I'd like to think Cathy is Pussy Galore possibly worth exploring in another script -but Avengers/Honey West crossover first I reckon) In these uncertain times The Avengers are very much needed hopefully more archive of first series will turn up fingers crossed hopefully they'll release Tunnel of Fear somehow on dvd or on stream I'm most curious to see that one as Steed to be on top form (Undercover as a magician with Belly Dancers-a must see)
