So I cranked out another post for my WordPress Avengers blog, "Featherdusters at 400 Yards." It's another a series I've been doing about Steed as a trickster, in this case the ways he hides in plain sight by assuming a cover but dropping hints that he's not who he appears to be. You can read it here: https://therealavengers.wordpress.com/2017/11/25/cunning-old-foxes-iii-hiding-in-plain-sight/.

If you want to read the other posts in this series, you can do that here: https://therealavengers.wordpress.com/category/themed-blog-series/cunning-old-foxes/.

You can access the full blog at https://therealavengers.wordpress.com/.

One of my favourite examples is in "Build a Better Mousetrap" where he introduces himself as being from The National Distrust - a quango that doesn't trust the owners of stately homes to keep them properly maintained.

Yeah, Mousetrap has a lot of trickster stuff going on. I've written three blogs about it already, and there's still more to unpack.

New Blog Post on Featherdusters at 400 Yards

In this post, I examine the ways in which Steed and Mrs Peel's true courage and virtue are contrasted with the villainy of the Danger Makers.

Content notice for discussion of ableist themes and disabled-as-villain tropes.

Nother Blog Post

Here's a little something I tossed off about the conversation between Mrs Peel and the undertaker in "Dial a Deadly Number."

The Exclusivity Arc

So about a year or so ago, I went through the whole of Season 4 to figure out how the arc of Steed and Mrs Peel's relationship worked. The result was a 9-post series on Tumblr, which later sprouted a couple extra features. Since that initial series, I revised some of my thinking about stuff from "Too Many Christmas Trees" onward, so I've collated everything into only 3 posts (with revisions) plus 2 extras on my WordPress site, and it's now all there for your delectation.

You can start with the Introduction and Overview, which also has links to the other parts: https://therealavengers.wordpress.com/2017/12/17/the-exclusivity-arc-introduction-and-overview/
