Re: Bowler Hats and Kinky Boots: The Ultimate Avengers Book

I've finally got round to buying this book, which arrived this week. This is the amazon version with 760 pages. Mike, does this differ in any way to the Telos first edition? This looks crammed with a lot of well researched information and will probably take forever to read! Looking forward to it. :...

Re: Rhonda Parker

Ther person who organised The Avengers event in Bradford many years ago that she attended and arranged for her to attend, say...

Re: Who owns The Avengers?

I do list the various copyright holders to The Avengers chronologically in my book Bowler Hats and Kinky Boots, as and when the changes took place, but you will need to read through it to come across them. Good thing I found this list amongst my files. The Avengers copyright holder 1961 – 1967 ABC T...

Re: 1967: exit of J. Bryce, entry of B. Clemens and A. Fennell

I think this situation was covered as well as anyone can cover it in my book Bowler Hats and Kinky Boots: The Unofficial and Unauthorised Guide to The Avengers published in 2014. I spoke and exchanged correspondence and emails with Brian Clemens and spoke with his close friend Dennis Spooner, plus R...

Brilliant photographs Geoff of what was a most enjoyable weekend.

Plus, I was extremely impressed with the Department S location that you found as it was completely new to the rest of us.

The Saturday night quiz at Arkley Golf Club was also memorable, mainly because you, Rick, Andy and I won it.

Geoff and Mousemeat Again thanks for taking another look at this one. Apparently John found an ally in Sam Wanamaker when they were filming the episode to Trap a Rat, but when that went pear shaped it did not go well for the second unit director and assistant producer Johnnie Goodman told him on mor...

Hi Geoff Thanks for taking the time to read and assist. I will take a look over at YouTube and see if Ray mentions this at all. John Hough who went the other way from The Champions to The Avengers gives insight as to why this occurred. It appears to be that John was too extravagant as a second unit ...

Does anyone know of an interview with Ray where he talks about how he came to work on The Champions as the second unit director.

He does not appear to have done many interviews over the years.

THE TREASURE HUNT IS BACK! The beginning of July marks a return to Avengerland (aka Elstree, Borehamwood, Hertsmere) for more visits to filming location used in The Avengers and various ITC series after a two year break because of Covid. I'm looking forward to seeing the usual crowd again as the Tr...
