Umm, no sure that actor below on photo from episode The Fear Merchants is Rocky Taylor: Confused



Rocky had haircut like Patrick Macnee. And think it was not a wig, as he is not rare performed various difficult stunts in series so, since 4 season (well, in adding hardly can imagine that someone would be allowed him to use the some amount of same wigs for difficult stunts - as we knows, wig costs a lot of money). Wink



Rocky:



Rocky:



It is most likely that when shooting the scene "the pass from back the man in a suit and bowler hat", Rocky by certain reason was not available, and maybe they not had access to the wigs too (it is very possible if this scene was shot in the period when they not had access to film at Elstree studios, so they could not have the person who could provide them with part of the necessary things, for example).

One of scientists on TV screen in episode "The Thirteenth Hole" is Dickey Luck.



Earlier, actor as Darts player appeared in episode The Hour That Never Was.

Umm, when recently I watched the episode The Thirteenth Hole on DVD from Optimum, noticed that woman in golf cart (stand-in for Diana Rigg) in tag are very similar to one person from episode "The Hour That Never Was" (scene: Steed at party meets a woman and mistakenly takes her as Emma). Curiously, unfortunately we do not know her name. Confused

She turns up semi-regularly as a stand-in for Diana - especially driving scenes - so she may be Diane West.

Could she be Diana Rigg's stand-in Diane Enright?

Unfortunately, I've never seen a photo of Enright.

Oh, I have not seen a photo of Enright, too. Sad

But now, a big surprise.

I'm identified who is this person in the photo below.



Joe Farrer (or John Farrer), according official info pages in Mike's book "Bowler Hats and Kinky Boots".

Unfortunately, I absolutely do not know any biographical information about this stuntman, but now we can look at the list of Joe's works on The Avengers.

Episode "The Gravediggers"
Joe as one of Pallbearers (photo above)

Episode "The Master Minds"
Joe as Man in rowing machine



Episode "Castle De'ath"
Joe as one of Gillie



Also:
Driving Double for Tulip in episode Who's Who???
Stunt Double for Chadwick in episode Return of the Cybernauts (face of Joe is good seen)
Stunt Doubles for Alex and Danvers in episode Dead Man's Treasure
Stunt Doubles for Barlow and Ketteridge in episode All Done with Mirrors (face of Joe is good seen as stunt for Barlow)
Stunt Double for Vickers in episode Super Secret Cypher Snatch

Hmm, I don't agree with this one - Pat had more hair and was younger.

Good points, Piers, if we will do identify only by the shot above. At first I did exactly the same conclusion like you, when analyzed the person on a shot, but then I decided to watch the episode for sure. I noticed that when the actor, who similar Pat Halpin, lowers his head, he has as much hair as mentioned actor at the time.



That is, the lighting in the room placed so that it falls on the head of Pat and illuminates his hairs to such an extension, we thinks this actor have little hairs, but this is an illusion. Wink

Age of the actor

This is a very uncertain thing for identification. Often watching real faces of actors in different films, we can see that around the same time they can look or older or younger. It depends on the roles that they are playing (even if they do not use make-up).

For example, Pat Halpin in movie First Men in the Moon (1964)



and Pat in movie The Great St Trinian's Train Robbery (1966)



It seems that the actor suddenly rejuvenated. Wink

Piers, I reading on Britmovie, you updating the site now?

I forgot to mention about one uncredited actor from Small Game for Big Hunters.



Not John Harrison. Actor in the photo above is the Asian or semi-Asiatic type. Wink

Today I watched the scene from Decapod again, I agree, not Pat Halpin. Wink It is good that you have pointed out my mistake, Piers, I very don't like to mislead the people. However, as for the other performers in this topic (except actor, which mistakenly indicated on a moviedude as John Cam), I am confident in the results absolutely surely (like topic "Stuntmen").
Well, I'm doing the identifications film episodes at the DVDs of Optimum, while episodes from video-epoch, I have only as American TV broadcasting prints, early 1990s.

What do you think about actor, credited on your site as John Harrison, Piers?

I'm pretty sure it is John - the eyes, big ears and nose are the same, and he has the same distinctive crease in the chin. I need to watch that episode of Dangerman again to check for the pock marks on the left cheek. The lips look different but that may be because of the face he's pulling.

Stay tuned...

Here is other shot with actor from The Avengers, without face pulling:



Eyes are different and yes, lips, too. Wink
