Hello to you all.

I have long been fond of the Avengers and during a period of searching yesterday I came across this forum. It looks really interesting. As a consequence of reading some of the threads, to my delight I learnt of the forthcoming UK DVD release. Woohoo!!!

Anyway, I would like to ask some advice. I have been purchasing some signed photographs recently and due to the large number of fakes around I normally try to buy from decent sources (UACC registered dealers etc.).

I have been trying to collect some Avengers related signed photos and have recently obtained Patrick Macnee, Honour Blackman, Linda Thorsen, Joanna Lumley and Gareth Hunt.

I have been looking at a couple of Diana Rigg photos and one of them is an ABC promotional image of Emma Peel holding a gun, looking at the camera. Now I have read a lot about Diana Rigg being reluctant to, or even refusing to sign Avenger related photos. Has this always been the case or is this a recent thing?

My question is, how many signed Emma Peel photos are there? Is this one I have seen likely to be a fake due to it's supposed rarity? The seller is not a registered dealer and just states that it is part of an old collection.

Due to my uncertainty, I am wondering if it is a safer bet to get a non Avenger related signed photo of her from a more reputable source.

I would value your opinions.

Thanks in advance.

Martin

Hi Martin,

Welcome to the forum.

I'm sorry I can't help you in regards to your questions about Diana Rigg's autographs. The only thing I know for sure is that she has stated in the past that most of the signed photos she had sent out to fans during the Avengers were actually signed by her mother. So chances are that if you were to come across a signed photo from back in the day, the chances that Ms. Rigg signed it are nil.

There are many people here who could give you some ideas of where to look for more recent authentic signitures.

Good luck in your hunt and have fun in the forum.

yup, old mom was rumoured for years, to hoist her pen..copping
Diana's autograph..as Ms.Rigg, wasn't a big fan of her tenure

however, perhaps, as the years have rolled bye, Ms.Rigg, just might soften her stance ..and could do a real autograph...if not, well..back to the drawing board...(sigh)
