Hello everyone. 😦
Welcome to ‘Bradley’s Basement’ blog and I’m Tim Bradley.
Just want to share a tribute to Diana Rigg, well-known for playing Emma Peel in ‘The Avengers’ TV series from 1965 to 1968. I was shocked and surprised to hear the news that Diana Rigg had passed away, as I recently saw her in the second episode of the new ‘All Creatures Great and Small’ series.
I greatly enjoyed her as Mrs. Pumphrey in the new ‘All Creatures’ show. It’s sad to think there might not be another season of the new show with her playing the character. Diana Rigg has captured the hearts of millions of viewers who watched her as Mrs. Peel. I’ve enjoyed her in ‘The Avengers’ too! 🙂
As well as playing Emma Peel in ‘The Avengers’, I’ve also seen Diana Rigg as Mrs. Bradley in ‘The Mrs. Bradley Mysteries’ which I enjoyed recently. She was also in the ‘Doctor Who’ episode ‘The Crimson Horror’ and was in the 1982 film ‘Evil Under The Sun’ with Peter Ustinov as Hercule Poriot. 🙂
I’ve also seen Diana Rigg in the 1975 ‘Morecambe & Wise Christmas Show’. Diana has done plenty of movies and TV shows in her career, including playing James Bond’s wife, would you believe, in ‘On Her Majesty’s Secret Service’ and playing Olenna Tyrell in ‘Game of Thrones’. It’s an amazing career.
It’s so sad that Diana Rigg’s gone from us. Her legacy as an actress has been amazing. She’s survived by her daughter Rachael Stirling. I hope I’ll get to review ‘The Avengers’ TV show someday and I hope to honour her memory by watching her in ‘The Great Muppet Caper’ pretty soon for my blog. 🙂
Many thanks, Mrs. Rigg. You were definitely needed!
My prayers and thoughts go out to the family and friends of Diana Rigg.
