Re: Terry Maidment (1932-2024)

Paul Weston is still with us, he's often around on facebook. Cyd Child as well, of course. Dinny Powell died last year so it might just be Steed and Emma's doubles who are still with us.

Re: 4.14 - The Town of No Return

I think the 1960s transcribers were watching the film in a booth because some of the dialogue sheets record the exact length of the reels, and they do vary. The 1980s dialogue sheets obviously had them watching videotape or some other medium as none of that information is in them. This is Man-eater ...

Terry Maidment (1932-2024)

Re: 4.14 - The Town of No Return

I made a guess based on the standard episode structure but I might need to look again,  let me know what you think!   It's really annoying we don't have the script for this episode.     And the ends of reels marked in the dialogue sheets are no indication either, one of them is even mid-sentence!

Re: 4.14 - The Town of No Return

I'm watching this again and it's a sheer delight, but it occurs to me I don't know where the original ad breaks were. Was the end of Act 1 the fade when Smallwood is killed, or the fade after Steed suggests it's time Mrs Peel were in bed? The first is more dramatic, but the second seems to fit the ...

Re: The Dissolute Avengers website

I'd never come across the term "wowserism" before - thanks for educating me!   My Antipodean outlook, I had no idea the word was more or less unknown outside Australia & New Zealand.   It's a great one, and I'm glad you used it! Only took a moment to google, and the history of it is f...

Re: The Dissolute Avengers website

I might remove that... the idea is the crew is 10% transparent (which results is slightly muted colours as I have a consistent white background for the content area). As cast & crew are rarely together on the same screen, I should probably remove it altogether.
