Billy did a lot of Diana's stunts in the b/w 1965-6 season, before Cyd Child joined the crew. Peter did the high diving stunt in "The Bird who Knew too Much" as well as appearing in tons of episodes, including Emma Peel and Tara King seasons.
I briefly held a theory that he appeared in every episode of 1967, as he seemed to turn up in the extras and stunt performers a lot.

NEW GUEST ANNOUNCEMENT



HONOR BLACKMAN

One of her earliest appearances on TV was in a recurring role as Nichole, secretary/assistant to Dan Dailey's character of Tim Collier in the 1959 series The Four Just Men. However it is for her role as Cathy Gale in The Avengers and as Pussy Galore in James Bond: Goldfinger that brought her to an international fame. Bond film supremo Albert R. Broccoli admitted that Blackman had been cast on the back of her success in The Avengers, despite the fact that the American audience had never even seen the programme.

Blackman's films include Quartet (1948) and So Long at the Fair (1950) with Dirk Bogarde, the 1958 story of the Titanic's sinking A Night to Remember (1958); Life at the Top (1965) with Laurence Harvey, The Virgin and the Gypsy (1970), and the Western films Shalako (1968) with Sean Connery and Brigitte Bardot and Something Big (1971) with Dean Martin. She played the role of Hera in Jason and the Argonauts (1963). More recently, the actress has had small roles in the films Bridget Jones Diary (2001) and Jack Brown and the Curse of the Crown (also 2001).

In 1986, she had a role in the Doctor Who serial The Trial of a Time Lord. From 1990 to 1996 she appeared as Laura West on The Upper Hand. Blackman took a guest role on Midsomer Murders as ex-racing driver Isobel Hewitt in the episode A Talent for Life. In September 2004, she briefly joined the Coronation Street cast in a storyline about wife swapping.

* LIMITED TO 60 TICKETS ONLY *
Tickets cost 35 and includes two free autographs per guest.
Extra autographs will be available at only 5 each.

Honor is such a grand gal to take time to do the appearance! That will most definately draw in the fans.

Of course, the name caused an even greater stir in 1959 when it first appeared in the hugely popular James Bond books series. She was the lesbian leader of an all-female flying circus whom Bond converts to heterosexuality. Fleming wasn't hot on realism!

Are you deffo going, Alan? I'm torn. London's a big trip from where I am, and my missus won't be that chuffed, but might forgive me for a chance to meet Honor Blackman. It'd be nice to bump into some members of the forum(s) at the same time.

We're trying to buy 4 tickets, does any one know if there is any left - when we type 4 it turns into one ticket?

Hi Ive just joined the Forum, just thought i would let you know that i attend alot of the Fantom Doctor Who Events. I got back into "Fandom" and attending conventions a few years ago and have to say that Fantom events are the best ones around, and excellent value for money.
Im going to one of their Doctor Who events tomorrow (Sunday) they have 10 guests, and you get two free autographs off of each guest (20 autographs for free!) There will also be some Avengers guests there tomorrow.
They will interview one-three people at a time and then you queue up for autographs and then another interview etc
I will ask tomorrow if they have any more guests announcements for the Avengers event.
Be seeing you

Oh, you lucky people in the UK. Of all the Avengers stars, the one I'd most want to meet is Honor Blackman.
