The site continues to be updated - I've just finished "The Secrets Broker".
http://www.dissolute.com.au/avweb/new.html

It's raised a question though, and I can't for the life of me remember the episode. There's a scene early in a black and white episode - probably Season 2 - where Cathy and Steed are discussing a case over breakfast.

the scene is notable because it has the most blatant product placement - Steed is cutting a coupon or cowboy or something out of his cereal packet, and basically holds the packet up to camera for several seconds to do so.
Can anyone remember where that was?

I think it's "A Conspiracy of Silence" but I can't remember for sure. If no-one replies in time, I'll check this evening (and add the trivia to the relevant episode).

I really want to see Steed waving a packet of Coco Pops* about now!

Easy peasy as it's one of my favourites.

The Golden Eggs.

Especially notable recently since that very scene went wandering to a later part of the episode due to the original DVD error.

Thanks Darren, it was indeed The Golden Eggs - I've updated the site, profusely illustrated throughout, as they used to say.

Just in case you're not subscribing to my updates feed, I've just added videos for Venus' songs to go with the MP3s I've been offering since last June.

Three updates in four days!

I've just uploaded new cast member photos for Seasons 2 & 3 - now mostly 500x400 (think 1/2 to 1/3 of most people's computer screens) in the cast lists. Stars of the show get 800x640.

Mugshots in the guides are 250x250 (e.g. other shows, regulars, who's killing whom...).

In case you haven't been keeping up to date (the good folk over at Britmovies have), Series 4 has the 500x400 cast member mugshots and Series 5 up to "The Hidden Tiger" does as well.

...and about a hundred billion extra continuity, trivia and production notes too.

There seems to be a problem with the dissolute website: the top two thirds of any page gets "blanked out". The contents are visible in a faded way, but no links can be clicked on. I suspect it is something to do with the pop-up ad. I've tried different browsers and PCs but it always happens.

Anyone else seeing this?

Yes me too, I first got the problem yesterday.

I have sent an email using the comments link (which luckily is at the bottom of the page!)

I'm terribly sorry.

I didn't get this myself on any browsers. I've taken off the ad, it was crappy anyway (and only supposed to appear when you *left* the site). The suppliers' code doesn't work properly.

Even more strangely, it wasn't supposed to be on the main page at all.

It is very nice to have a picture of the name of every episode as it appears on the screen. Great idea. Most names seem to be in capital letters but there are at least two that aren't :

LOOK - (stop me if you've heard this one) BUT THERE WERE THESE TWO FELLERS...
had these lower case letters in the middle

and

SEPET
SUCPRE
CNCEHC
SYPARE
has word anagrams (before resolving into the title)

Can anyone think of any others that are a little different, or are they really all in capital letters? And there isn't an oblique stroke for 'George', because I looked!

L♡ve All is a bit different.

I think they experiemented with different fonts for many titles of the TK series of episodes.

My favorite font is the one used for THE MORNING AFTER's title and PANDORA's (I think we're talking of the same font, right ?)

If you use the What the Font Font identifier online, you might be able to find out which font it is, if you do please share.

The font used on Pandora and The Morning After is quite common and was everywhere in the 60's and 70's so it shouldn't be too hard to pin down.



(From Piers' site).

Just thought! There's a thread about fonts on Roobarb's I can ask.

The A's and I's in those two title captions look different to me. Are they really the same font as each other?
