interesting photo....year taken ?


Probably 1988 when she was awarded the OBE. Rachel looks like she's 11 there.

Something wonderful came in the mail today. I am enjoying it very much. Diana's humour and compassion comes through, and her absolute love of acting and actors. It's like she is talking directly into your ear.

Quite a few copies on Ebay, including a hardback signed by Dame Diana herself.

Mine's a paperback, with a little sticker in the back cover saying it came originally from a certain theatrical bookshop in London, which is nice.

Wow, a little sticker in the back cover (from a certain theatrical bookshop in London), is really special thing. My congratulations. I try to buy similar rarities on Ebay.

I was just watching the new adaptation of Black Narcissus. I liked it, in contrast to the original film, which teeters on the verge of excessive humor and some kind of fabulousness (only Kathleen Byron does look impressive while it's hard to believe in the images of others performers - they are either cold or a little grotesque). The new adaptation is completely serious, atmospheric, with hints of thriller and even horror. The actors play well - overall the cast is more appropriate than in the original film. Noticed that Diana Rigg does not appear in the last third episode, as indicated on the IMDb, for example, but is mentioned in the end credits: "In Memory of DIANA RIGG (1938-2020)".

It's great that Mother Love is being repeated on the BBC soon. I saw this again recently. It was her best TV role since The Avengers. She was brilliant in this role.

Be aware the 2nd and final part is on the following day, Wednesday December 23, at 9pm. Not a week later as might be expected!

Gatiss is very good, his documentaries (on horror movies, Dracula etc) are excellent. But the personal angle here makes it rather lovely. You certainly get a sense of Diana's very strong personality!!

I'll always love that Diana stuck to the term Actress rather than adopting Actor. Good for her!
