New identification.

It turns out the British actor and singer Glen Stuart (better known for his participation in music band Magna Carta) played in The Avengers.

He appeared as Biker Roderick in Avengers episode Build a Better Mousetrap (1963).



Mention of his participation in the series can also be found in other sources, including newspapers from different countries, for example the Netherlands:

I had just flipped through unidentified extras on Piersí website, and stopped on one person:



Hmm, looks like David Baker, according to Movie-dude, although there is no certainty as can't see the full face. Confused

My problem with David Baker is that last photo - it's not the same man!

Yes, Piers, I agree, the men in these screenshots from the movie-dude looks somewhat different, which causes doubt. I wonder if there is a real David Baker among them? Or is it just a guess... Confused

It turned out that a long time ago it was known by the fans of the TV series The Professionals that the actor in the photo below is Reg Woods.



For credibility, I checked it by watching the TV mini-series Kessler, where Reg played Agent. Yes, it's our person, on pic above. Wink

Reg as extra participated in many TV series 1970s, such as Fawlty Towers, Doctor Who, Blake's 7, mentioned The Professionals, and TNA.

As for The New Avengers, he appeared at least in four episodes! Wink


1. Gangmember in episode Sleeper (1976).



2. Soldier in episode Dirtier by the Dozen (1976).



3. Derek Wigmore in episode Medium Rare (1977).



4. Photographer/Journalist in episode The Lion and the Unicorn (1977).

Thanks for that, I've been looking for Reg's name for ages.

Episode Escape in Time.

Scene "Tubby looks out the window and sees the rider".



I have to say, I used to always think it was Joe Dunne, but now, thanks to Blu Ray, itís clear that the extra look like... Mike Stevens.
Personally, I'm 99 percent sure that this is Mike Stevens. Wink

Could be Mike, looks a bit like a fatter Peter Roy as well.

Yes, I thought about Peter Roy too, but then when I watched this footage again, I realized it was less likely than Mike Stevens, since Peter Roy is an actor and a stand-in, while Mike Stevens is a stuntman and an actor. Of course, maybe Peter Roy has the ability to ride a horse, but if watch the fotage carefully, it is seen that this is not just a rider, but a professional rider. At first, when he appears in the frame, the horse runs, and he dismounts from the horse very quickly and confidently.

As I know, to shoot a professional rider immediately turn to the stuntman rather than the actor and stand-in. Because why waste time and film on shooting someone who does not have specificity in it (logically). I doubt that Peter Roy could have done this, otherwise he would have appeared in various movies and TV productions as a rider too. But I do not know not one. I did not see any documents and did not read any mention that Peter Roy is a professional rider. Mike Stevens appeared as a horseman in movie Carry on Cowboy (1965).
Thus, it became obvious to me that there is only one stuntman who looks like this professional rider - Mike Stevens. Wink
