Linda Thorson portrays Polly, and dominates the stage with a striking presence of white hair, fitness-model svelteness, and no idea at all that she is a bully under her charm. She runs the household, and the play.

Those are great shots of Linda, especially the one with her eating the fruit. She looks lovely in both. Great finds, Denis. Very Happy

I've just been reading the PDF of the TV Times from 1969 with Linda on the cover in the Pandora wedding dress. It features an interview with Linda as well as comment from others involved in the show.

Then I came across this comment:

"Early last year, John Bryce confirmed rumours that he and Linda were fond of each other. "There is a romance but Linda's focusing very much on her career and I'm working very hard mine.""

I had always dismissed this one as a nasty bit of gossip that Brian Clemens had pushed as he didn't agree with her casting.

It's an interesting interview as it mentions things like bits in the paper saying that Linda and Patrick were at loggerheads which she dismisses as rubbish. You can get a much softer view of the media from the 60's but they're not that different from these days - printing rubbish.

It doesn't say that she got the job because she was Bryce's girlfriend. That was pure Clemens, who presumably was not around for the extensive auditions and screen tests (which expensively included male actors as Steed, as well as the numerous candidates for Tara) since he'd been sacked.

Good to know also there was nothing illicit about their relationship. So the sole reason Linda got the scurrilous "Avengers Dossier" first edition pulped was the incorrect allegation of her only getting the job by sleeping with the producer.
