I've heard somewhere, that Emma Peel's car is in a museum. Is that true? And where is that museum?
Thanks!

It's a wonderful museum, and it was a real treat to see (and sneakily touch) Mrs Peel's car. Highly recommended.

Thanks for the information, but that's a bit too far away! I travel to London in February 2010 and want to visit also some Avengers places. Can you propose me some locations to visit? I planned to visit "Duchess Mews", but It would be great, if you could make me some other suggestions. Very Happy

If you can get out of London, travel north to Aldbury (near Tring) which was the location for Murdersville - it looks largely unchanged. Also near there is Ivinghoe Beacon, where some location filming for The House That Jack Built was done. My cousin lives near Aldbury, so I've been there a few times - it gives you a buzz to think you're at the place where Diana Rigg was ducked in a pond!!

I think it was a contempoary car of it's time. I don't know if it was an especially exclusive model or anything.

The Lotus Elan has it own website ...

http://www.lotuselan.net/

... which includes a forum, and even a discussion on The Avengers

They have the colour era powder blue Lotus Elan 3S, and not the monochrome era white Lotus Elan S2, just so you know.

When I stayed in Keswick, also not to be missed were the Pencil Museum and the Beatrix Potter experience...

Maybe I'll visit some of the locations if I'm ever in London. They're great to view too online, thanks. Imagine living at 19a Chalcot Crescent and being a fan!

That's a shame, not least because a good proportion of the 'Cars of the Stars' will have no relevance in the USA.

Always a shame to see British heritage disappear overseas.

One could argue that they will get more paying British visitors in Florida than they got in Keswick.

The GRRC have just posted this on Facebook:

The official Goodwood Revival

This year’s Earls Court Motor Show at Revival will celebrate the ‘Great British Sports Car’.
From pre-war Bentley to 21st century Lotus, the display will include an example of each
of the iconic, and quintessentially British, sporting cars.
What are your all time favourite ‘Great British Sports Cars’?




They don't say whether SJH 499D will be part of the display.

Time for Tea?
Lotus Elan and Diana Rigg


How to celebrate half a century of the Lotus Elan? An Avengers/Diana Rigg/Lotus mash-up seems about right!
