Wonderful!

I wonder if we'll ever see any of those rare slides and print/negative photos which were in the Ebay lot that sold for 3000 or so a few years back. Much of them were taken for things like publicity and never used.


Yes, there is a chance. These rare photographs began to appear unexpectedly for the wide public since last year. Some apparently were bought from the archive Rex Features, some taken from private collections. I would like to believe that this someone (s) will continue give to fans the opportunity to regularly see rare photo material.

More great photos, Denis! Very Happy Thank you for sharing them. Some particularly great ones of Linda, too--I love her outfit with all the pockets. Cool


Thanks for kind words, Jay!
This is a funny Linda's costume (outfit with four the pockets). Very Happy
Interesting would be to look at it, if costume used in The Avengers. You can put in the pockets of a good spy set, leaving a brick in your bag for careless villains. Laughing


I wish she'd worn it during the course of the series. I like her hair, too! Very Happy

Thanks dennisrigg Very Happy Love the photos of Linda ! She looks incredibly sexy on the bonnet of the Hillman Exclamation Would have loved to see Linda and Joanna Lumley posing together ! Often wondered if Joanna studied some of Tara's poses as some Tara and Purdey poses look similar Surprised Linda looks very classy in a hat...but so does Joanna-shortly post New Avengers Very Happy Linda has incredible legs but her choice of boots doesn't show them off to best effect...a lot of Purdey's boots would have looked incredibly sexy on Linda Embarassed

I wonder if Margaret Thatcher picked up tips from Tara. She was popularly supposed to have "a brick in her handbag" in the 1980s. Maybe The Forget-Me-Knot episode had a big cultural impact!

It's possible that the photographers gave the same direction to Linda and Joanna... or they might even be the same photographer!

Oh, I love this wonderful photo series on the River Thames with Patrick and Linda. They used a lot of the costumes shown earlier in The Avengers. For public, the most famous photos with costumes from episodes You'll Catch Your Death and Noon Doomsday. Linda in hat is most favorite for me out of this. Very Happy


That costume for Steed would've been an interesting departure from his usual ensembles - his "off duty" floral shirts got rather bizarre, but this stylish Nehru-inspired suit was way ahead of its time and would've looked great. Both Linda and Pat look very slim and fit there - they were probably suffering from the "slimming pills" though!

Well, I like Linda as a whole. Tara was first, when I started watching the TV series in 1995. I wish I could see these her hair in The Avengers. John Bryce lost some opportunities. Crying or Very sad And maybe there was a need a suit with dozen or more pockets? Laughing Wink In each episode Tara demonstrates secret spy set from one of them. Very Happy

Tara, below, is tired Super Spy, returning home with the some dangerous mission. Surprised

It would be definetely interesting to see Linda and Joanna together. I think that some kind of style for character of actresses could take an element of the roots from Julie Stevens. At least Linda accurately was closer to Julie, as they both look young in the series, have similar traits. Purdey is a mixture of Emma Peel, Tara and character heroines 70s, but except having its own self. I agree that there are similarities Joanna with Linda's poses, but I think it's a certain model school that teaches this. Linda probably learned it at the studio, as she had no experience, but Joanna coped excellently without outside help. Well, we have two actresses from one school to pose, apparently. I doubt that anyone would like to Joanna posed as Linda, since the character of Tara seemed unfortunate for most , including people from the studio. Nevertheless, I do not know for sure. Confused
Oh, I know that Linda could look much more wonderful in other suits and boots, but tah we see in series was a kind of fashion of the late 1960s. Sadly but Tara is not fully revealed by the end of the series and I think that if there would be a second season, we could see a new Tara's image.
Producers, I believe, would have thought about it after the ratings of first season. Wink

Hmm ... This is an interesting point, Frankymole, because when I read various newspaper articles about Linda, then noticed that the brick in a Tara's bag mentioned no once. Probably, it was a very memorable moment.
Well, Tara with brick was only once, and I do not particularly pay attention to it when watching The Forget-Me-Knot , nonetheless it is interesting to know what things are best remembered by the people. Very Happy Tara and brick!!!

Most likely the studio decided to advertise in the special day everything that was at hand. Fun to see in one photo the costumes for actors from different episodes.

Patrick - Noon Doomsday
Linda - Super Secret Cypher Snatch



Patrick - again, Noon Doomsday
Linda - My Wildest Dream



etc

I do think Linda looks lovelier with longer hair--every time she wore extensions as Tara, I thought she looked great. These shortly post-series shots are fun because they give us a bit of an idea how Tara might have looked had there been a second season for her.

I've always had mixed feelings about the Nehru jacket - on the one hand, I like that they gave Steed different styles throughout this series (somewhat similar to his vacation ensembles in Season 2), rather than just the three piece suits. His floral shirts leave a lot to be desired, as though Emma departed and took his fashion sense with her. But the jacket is nice. Can't say I like his accessory, though...

A great image of Linda's Ford Mustang, which she acquired before she had passed a UK driving test.

Tara certainly would have done justice to the Purdey Bob Cool She had killer legs...incredibly fit and shapely ...would love to have seen her step in beside Purdey in a pair of mid-calf boots and shorts Cool
