Hello all
New here. My name is Derek and I currently live in Northern Ireland)(althoughfrom SE england originally). I'm a big fan of the Avengers, obviously. I have to admit that it was the New Avengers that hooked me first as that was on when I was growing up and I didn't see any of the Avengers until the C4 repeats in the 90s. I've tried to make up for it since!

Looking forward to joining in here

Thanks all for the welcome! I do seem to have spent an inordinate amount of money on Avengers stuff in the last couple of years...

Oh I like all the avengers eras... Personally I think the Cathy Gale stories are sadly neglected by many and some of the Tara stories are amongst my favourites (and I desperately want a pole to slide down in my house!)

I do like the Diana Rigg episodes (obviously) but it was refreshing to see Linda and Honor do most of their own fight scenes rather than Diana who seemed to be doubled at every oportunity (not quite so bad when doubled by a female...).

On the Diana front, I did a week as an extra on Game of Thrones last summer and at least I can say that I have appeared in a scene with her! (in the same room anyway...)
