Mike R, I can see Jane Merrow in the role, also I think Valerie Van Ost, Reed and Peach would have been good too. Would love to have been able to see the complete list of actresses who were considered. Alas I guess we will never know.


myself, Van Ost would have been fine, but hey, Thorson was the best possible replacement


Yes! This! Poor old Linda comes in for a lot of bashing sometimes, and lets face it most of the time it's simply because she isn't Diana Rigg/Emma Peel. Well, neither would any of those other girls have been. I think Linda Thorson did a fantastic job, the Tara King season is one of my very favourites and I do think, though of course it's natural to speculate on things that might have been, that it's a little disrespectful to the actress when so many people express the opinion that they wished someone else would have played the role. Personally I'm very happy with how things turned out, the only disappointment for me is that the show never came back for another series. Perhaps Tara-bashers also blame her in part for the series' cancellation?
