Tonight, I'll watch one of the two remaining episodes with a full glass of scotch in hand. Thank you, Patrick. Rest in Peace.

A Sense of History and A Room Without A View. Not the best but. . . they're all watchable. (I was following David K. Smith's rating system and saving the lowest rated eps for last.)


A Sense of History is one of my favourite episodes and a splendid tribute film to watch with Steed as the Sheriff of Nottingham with his 'wait until its challenged' sword.

I watched "The Hidden Tiger" last night, one of my favourites.
Patrick was perfect, as usual, a fitting tribute to his characterisation.

I remember seeing The New Avengers first on bbc2 in the early-mid 90s followed by the Emma Peel and Tara King episodes on C4. I also remember a Cathy Gale episode turned up on C4s TV Heaven show with Frank Muir in the early 90s.

Here's a lovely moving piece by Patrick visiting his favourite old world Tudor village in Sussex from the series
One Foot in the Past (1997) introduced by Kirsty Wark.

Ah, "The Hidden Tiger" is one of the very best and a perfect tribute to the talents of Patrick and the magic of the Avengers. A perfect choice.

I wonder if Russia Today's nationalistic fervour is responsible for the evil sods from Britain First & UKIP trying to appropriate "The Avengers" for their own nefarious ends.

Yes Linda's tribute was lovely.

I always appreciated how she would discuss him. She did it with love but tried to be truthful and accurate

My first views must have been somewhere in the 70's. Even 1972 or 1973, I think. The coloured Emma Peel reels.

If anyone is interested, a few of us have started a 6th February is Patrick Macnee Day Facebook page. The idea will be to commemorate his birthday each year and raise a little money for an appropriate charity in the process. Please do come along and sign up if you're interested.

We got a wonderful tribute to his career and famous role as John Steed, last week on French television. 5 episodes from the fifth series were broadcast and it was a touching evening.

Patrick, we'll miss you enormously.

Has anyone posted Ray Austin's written tribute? If not, do you think he'd give permission for it to be posted (not everyone is on Facebook)?

We've heard and read Linda Thorson talking about the great man himself, Patrick Macnee, and reaction to his passing.

Joanna Lumley appeared on a couple of programmes this week, but I don't know if she was asked about him.

Have Honor Blackman or Joanna Lumley been asked to commemorate Mr Macnee, or offered any views on his life and career recently?

Obviously I don't want to intrude on private grief. I am however interested in sharing memories of the superb Patrick Macnee. Perhaps it may take some time, if ever, they feel like commenting. It must be an incredible loss for people who worked with him closely and knew this fine man.

I agree it must be hard for some express. I celebrated the man by watching Rehearsal for Murder. It's on YouTube

Always keep your bowler on in times of stress. And watch out for diabolical masterminds. R.I.P. Patrick!

I added a personal reflection today on Spy Vibe about Patrick's passing:
