Sounds interesting. Have you been researching a specific season/era or the series as a whole?

It's been series 1 as it's the 60th anniversary, but I've found material for all the series during my journey this last year or two.

I'd definitely be interested in reading the book if you write it. Have you unearthed anything on the New Avengers? It's always felt a bit vague regarding production dates, etc.

There is not much for The New Avengers that I've seen - just PR pieces and summaries for the newspapers. Perhaps Mike has something.

It was good fun, not a Q&A but Cyd was lovely and very approachable. I got to chat to her about driving the Lotus Elan in series five. She said it only had 28 miles on the clock before she got hold of it! She had to prove to Ray Austin that she could drive it fast so they bombed it up the motorway several times. She was able to use the car to get to locations on episodes like Dead Mans Treasure which she loved.

We talked about Chrome her parrot, Diana and Linda and she even signed my champagne flute! The book has a load of photos in from her private collection and many I have never seen before.

There were a mixture of Avengers, Bond and Judo fans there. Below are a few pics.

Great stuff and thanks for the new details about Cyd Child driving the Lotus Elan in series five. Very uplifting. I hope another meeting with Cyd will be arranged soon. Smile

The fans I spoke to really enjoyed it. It was only a small gathering but a nice mix of Bond, Avengers and Judo fans there. Cyd signed a few Stay Tuned books too and said some nice words about Dave Rogers who persuaded her to write the book along with others. Smile

I'm so glad that people like Cyd, who were apart of the series, was able to put together this book, and share her memories...before it was too late..and kudos to the fans..for showing their appreciation

WOW! My copy just arrived. What a beautiful book!! Really lavishly illustrated with photos (lots of colour), great quality paper and printing and copious and interesting text - Christine/Cyd's story looks fascinating, can't wait to stop work today so I can read it in detail.

My copy includes a lovely personalised dedication from the hand of the lady herself, and top quality signed photo too. Wonderful. Thanks for this huge pick-me-up. Even just reading Joanna Lumley's foreword made me grin like a loon.

The Zoom interview as part of the book bundle deal is provisionally set for 30 January at 19:00hrs (I presume GMT). I guess I should download Zoom!
