That's right,Rocky Taylor did a lot of the driving stunts too.

It's the back of his head you see driving the Bentley when Steed loses control on Spout Hill in Death's Door.


Rocky was always the one stuck in the Cybernaut suit, too, wasn't he? (I know that's true for TNA at least, and that he was Gareth's double as well).


I believe it was another stuntman by the name of Terry Richards in the earlier Cybernaught stories.

One of Rocky's earliest appearances in The Avengers was as the student who gets a punch in the nose when he sneaks up on Steed in A Sense Of History.


Was he really? There are worse debuts. Very Happy I always like the way Steed deals with the students in A Sense of History. They deserve to be given a hard time, and it's priceless because they obviously think Steed'll be a soft touch, at least right up until he gets that cold look in his eye and starts threatening to break arms...

Whilst watching The Girl From Auntie this evening, I noticed one that slipped by.

When Georgie goes through the list of her theatrical costumiers, the camera shows a door that says 'Theatrical Costumiers - - John Jacques, Paul Jacques, George Jacques, Fred Jacques'.

Yet, when they enter the costumiers' shop, the door actually says 'Starr Bros. Theatrical Costumiers'.

My favorite - Invasion of the Earthmen.
Tara takes off her vest and wipes away the spider webs and crawls into the tunnel. Then we see her smashing all the spiders with her vest and then stuffs the vest into the hole. Then we see her coming out of the tunnel without her vest. Next scene she is wearing the vest. I am sure the vest was expensive, but what women is going to put on a vest that is full of webs and gooey spider juice.

Really? I missed that one but I pegged him as one of the red-herring martial artists in "The Cybernauts". I'll check it out and update the site...

In "My Wildest Dream" there is a scene where the character Dyson says something while we see his reflection in a car mirror, but his lips aren't moving.

That's the exact scene that sprung to my mind too, reading the topic of this topic. I just can't remember the episode either though - frustrating! Neutral

I do enjoy those little mistakes though: the fact that the filming did not always went as smoothless as it looks, has its charm.

There is also that classic one where Steed walks into a building in a light grey suit and walks out in a dark blue one Laughing Can't remember the episode.


That must be "Never, Never Say Die", I think wardrobe stuffed up the sequence, because there's a similar sequence later on when he enters the building in the blue suit.

(p.s. thanks Allard, glad to see the site is of use).

Well, we don't want to see our dear Mrs. Peel with soggy, wet hair for very long, do we? Maybe she whipped out a blow dryer? (Oh, I forgot; blow dryers hadn't been invented yet!).

Ah, You Have Just Been Murdered it was! Coming to think of it, didn't the producers rewatch the episodes before they went out? It's the first thing you notice watching this scene...

Maybe they didn't mind so much. I have a feeling continuity was less important in those days than it is now.

I especially like the trivia pages for the episodes. These are best developed for the Peel (colour) season, there just so much fun to read after watching an episode, and I remember that when I first became an Avengers fan I'd read up on every episode on your site.

They always seemed to have issues with continuity when it came to water. Steed and Emma emerge from their fight in the rain in A Surfeit of H20 completely dry, for example, and I'm pretty sure when Tara climbs out of the river in They Keep Killing Steed, only her clothes are wet. Maybe in Avengerland they buy all their clothes from some amazing waterproof shop? Laughing

One of the most startling bits of broken episode-to-episode continuity has to be Gambit's amazing kitchen--it magically disappears and reappears from story to story. It's no wonder I could never figure out the layout of his flat. Laughing

In the scene in "You Have Just Been Murdered" with Mrs. Peel in the pond, if you watch it on DVD when she walks the henchman down the road you can see the wheels of the camera dolly in the corner of the frame. This probably isn't really a blooper, because the entire image would not have been shown when broadcast. But it's still funny.

In "Noon Doomsday," while shooting at tin cans, Grant manages seven shots from a six shot revolver. Also, the first shot rings out before he even has a chance to draw his gun.
