Is there any interest in a series of post where we discuss the best films and TV roles of the Avengers lead actors outside of the Avengers. So which appearances are worth watching the most.

Why not? I love Diana Rigg in In This House of Brede, a moving story about a woman trying to reivent herself.

I just recently got the boxset "Diana Rigg at the BBC" - it's an odd collection, but I've really enjoyed watching Three-Piece Suite and I look forward to seeing Little Eyolf.

Patrick, meanwhile, is often the best part of bad movies (see: View to a Kill), but I particularly love him in The Howling (my favorite werewolf movie) and his vignette in the Dead of Night TV film. I also have a soft spot for Mister Jerico.

Three of my favourite Diana Rigg performances outside The Avengers are, on film: Contessa Teresa (Tracy) di Vicenzo in Ian Fleming's On Her Majesty's Secret Service - the finest Bond girl in the entire series, (yet only just ahead of Honor Blackman's wonderful Pussy Galore), Edwina Lionheart in Theatre of Blood - a deliciously evil character and on television, her unsurpassed, heartbreakingly poignant playing of the beautiful, ill-fated Lady Honoria Dedlock in Dickens' Bleak House. Gillian Anderson was superb in the same role but, I think, Dame Diana's earlier performance was even better - quite sublime.

she's had a delightful career...and stayed true to her stage roots
