Yesterday I worked on the episode The Living Dead for website and found that even on the DVD Optimum it is noticeable that in the middle plan Paul Weston understudied Patrick Macnee as Steed in Bentley.



Well, usually he was stunt driver for Patrick Macnee in season 5, but in this case he just gets up from his seat in Bentley. Smile

In the colour Rigg episode titles when you see the clink of the champagne glasses, itís his hand you see holding the glass in the close up.

Wow, that's the news. Shocked Many thanks for this information, Mariocki! Just for curiosity, Paul was personally talking about? Wink It was recently?

It was last July but yes, he talked about it personally. He did mention who was doubling for Diana Riggís hands in that shot but I canít remember the name now.

Many thanks for information. Now when I will watch the opening titles of color Emma Peel episodes, my thoughts will be on Patrick Macnee, Diana Rigg and Paul Weston. Smile Have the assumption that since Paul Weston did clink of the champagne glasses, maybe Emma Peel's hands belong to Annabelle Covey (also known as Annabelle Heath and Annabelle Wise), who was the stunt driver and probaly stand-in for Diana in first block of season 5. Hmm... Confused

Now I watch the episode The Hidden Tiger, and discovered that in many scenes Paul Weston are as a stand-in and stunt driver for Patrick Macnee. Most surprisingly, I have not yet discovered Rocky Taylor in this episode at all - apparently he will appear by the end of the episode as a stuntman.
Yes, it's well demonstrates that at certain production point, Paul Weston began to appear on the screen more often than Rocky. Smile In the mentioned episode, Paul almost the star!!! Very Happy

This is he with collegue exploring the grounds of Sir David Harper, it's he going to Purrr, this is he examining the body of Walter Bellamy, etc. Smile

I watched the episode The Hidden Tiger to the end, and came to interesting conclusions: it's very possible that Paul Weston understudied Patrick in all the scenes, where it was required.
There's only one footage where Rocky could be - it's a run of Steed from the van to the fence and climbing through it. I was not able to identify the understudy on the DVD Optimum in this footage, but I'm sure many who have Blu Ray will be able to do this at the next point:



As for Diana Rigg's understudy, she looks like her driver, which says it's more like Annabelle Covey. Hmm... Confused

Thanks to Moviedude (http://movie-dude.co.uk):
Stand-in for John Woodvine in the episode The Murder Market is Jack Mandeville.
