Hello All,
I hope this is the right place to post this, I am hoping that you can help me with A Minor Mystery...

I have a photo, taken on the set of 'Fog' which shows someone dressed as Emma Peel !
I'm not sure that it is really Diana ...
and anyway 'Fog' was a Tara episode... !?!
*confused and intriged*


I hope this scan shows up ok as I'm new to this forum stuff:

Any ideas?

Also can anyone put a name to the set painter in the background?

Thanks

Good grief! Is it Cyd Child having a laff?

Along the lines of "Come Back Bill Hartnell, All is Forgiven" in the Dr Who series??

Ha ha!
I'd not considered that option!

I wondered if perhaps Diana herself still was friends with a lot of the Avengers crew and visited behind the scenes? She must have still been on good terms with a lot of the people she worked with over the years surely?

Perhaps more likely is that Diana's stunt double was still involved in the productions in some way and she still chose to dress like Emma when not doubling for Tara ?

It doesn't look like Diana to me--something about the face isn't quite right. It might be Cyd--she doubled for both Diana and Linda, but facially she can look a bit Dianaish at the right angle, and she did have Diana-length hair in season five, which she might not have cut when she started doubling for Linda (they could have put a wig on her just as easily as they did Linda). The build looks about right for Cyd, too. My guess would be it's either her, or a stand-in for Linda who's there to help them set up the lighting or something. I really can't see Diana having any reason to come back to the set after she'd wrapped Forget-Me-Not, especially since she would have been in the middle of filming OHMSS at the time. Fascinating shot, though. Thanks for sharing!

Aha!
I didn't know that Cyd had been double for both Diana and Tara and was just guessing a connection but that certainly seems a very likely explanation to me.
Thanks very much indeed for that info.

I think the set dresser is likely to be Simon Wakefield, who was credited for this episode. I think she has to be Cyd Child as others have said, or Christine Galli as she is known today.

Yes, she went on to double for Joanna Lumley in The New Avengers as well, so she had a long history of the show. Happy to be of help! There's a good shot of Cyd from her time doubling for Diana (complete with flipped up Emma hair) here if you're interested. (Go to the second page for the picture).

I didn't know Cyd had changed her name. Do you know why she did, Mike? Is Galliford her married name?

I just edited my post as her surname is Galli and yes it is her married name. She was very helpful with Bowler Hats and Kinky Boots, telling me several annecdotes and confirming infomation. She also told me that most of her time nowadays is taken up with the running of a children's swimming club.

Thanks, Mike! Good to hear that Cyd was so helpful with the book, and that she's keeping her hand in fitness-wise. Hopefully she doesn't work those kids as hard when they're doing lengths as she did Gareth and Joanna during those infamous shuttle runs. Wink

Wow thanks! That is a really interesting article!
It has made me realise that I think I may have another photo of her as well:

It is from the same batch taken on set in 1968 and
I'm thinking this resembles her in that second page photo..

The hallway set which featured in several episodes, usually after undergoing a redressing.

The photos I have appear to be possibly used for set design (or/and continuity), because a few of them have markings on the photos pointing to some of the props, referring to them as Old Times Putney (or OTP), presumably from where those props were hired and had to be returned.

A few show people I can't identify ( and there's a nice one of Patrick in an apron in Steed's kitchen with a script on one hand and The Crown Jewels on the table! ) most are just of sets and props.
They are the main reason why I joined this forum really, to find out more about them and if they are unique or if 'proper' Avengers archivists ( like yourselves!) already have them.

It's not Cyd, I believe she had her hair cut and dyed and went through the same bleach trauma that Linda suffered, probably just a crew member.

Fascinating photos though, thanks for sharing!

Yeah, that one started in Noon Doomsday but the set dressing for this one is They Keep Killing Steed. I think it also pops up in Take Me To a your Leader.

The lady in the Fog photo is wearing Tara's awful jacket from The Morning After.

That's what they look like to me, too. I've never seen anything similar before, so these are pretty neat--the day-to-day workings of the show, so to speak. They look like they're getting people to stand in for reference or the like. Others, like Mike, who have done extensive research into production documents, may have come across something like these before (and be able to tell you even more), but they're new to me, so thank you for posting them!

That last shot is from The Great Great Britain Case (not Crime as usually said).

I love seeing these with the lighting set ups.

Yes, do keep posting! These are fascinating. That one with Patrick in the apron is pretty priceless indeed. Cool
