For Avengers fans, here super photo of young Paul Weston (one of main stunt doubles for Patrick Macnee). Found on Facebook.

Great pic.

Here's how he looked 2 weeks ago:



I should be seeing him next Tuesday too as he's attending the Ray Austin talk in London.

Thanks for pic. Smile This is good to see that Paul is very active in last time too.

If you will have the opportunity to communicate with Ray Austin on planned event, Mariocki, it would be great to know on which beach were taken photos with Diana and Patrick in 1965.... well, if you do not mind. Wink

Although it was already so long ago,... Rolling Eyes

Not only was Paul there, but Rocky Taylor too. A good night with some great stories.

@Denis - I've answered your question in the other thread.

Great to hear - Paul and Rocky in one event! Smile This leads to good nostalgic - in last time I watch the colored episodes with Emma Peel again, I always take these two legend men as one team there.
You do not have a photo with Rocky on this event, Mariocki? Wink

Many thanks for answer about location of beach. Wink Go to topic in other thread.

Sorry Denis, I wasn't in a good enough position to take photos but some other forum members who were there may have done.

Yesterday I watched the episode The Winged Avenger for the first time on the Optimum DVD and noticed that when Emma Peel jumps over the fence, it's looks as a man in a suit and wig. Wonder if this is Peter J. Elliott again. It is most likely that this understudy jumped through the fence from the sort of trampoline.

Piers, I recently read the latest news on your site and there it is mentioned "a huge list of stunt performers to work through". If I understand correctly, do you plan to create a section for stunt team? Wink To admit, it would be excellent. Smile

It's not my intention because it takes so long to do. Phil has given me a list of performers who are known to have been in the Avengers. I think most of them are covered in Mike's book.

In any case, I'm glad to hear you are expanding your site to the topic of stuntmen. Smile If not secret, Piers - do you know, is this a list of performers fully from official documents or just Phil's notes? Wink

Piers, I just looked at the actor's list on the episode Game of your website, it's nice to find that all the stuntmen have been identified now. Really, I'm surprised, it seems so obvious now that Dice 4 is Del Baker. I was never even close to this idea. Smile Well done! Smile

A lucky encounter with Paul Weston filled in the blanks.

Aha, turns, Paul put the missing pieces to this puzzle.
I read the post on Facebook. Wink

Yesterday I finished watching the episode "Never, Never Say Die".

On DVD Optimum is already very obvious that this is Rocky Taylor as Steed in the scene of the fight between hero and the android. Smile Moreover, Eddie Powell performs as a permanent stuntman for Christopher Lee in necessary cases (road accidents, etc.). Wink

Also, recently was did very important post in topic Cyd Child, dated Jun 04, 2018 (11:27 am), related to episode "Never, Never Say Die":

Last important news

Identified Ray Austin as John Steed in two b/w episodes with Emma Peel. Previously there were only assumptions for these.

The Murder Market



This is the only good frame in which Ray can be calculated. Earlier, I had doubts when studying all the footages with the stuntman of Patrick Macnee in this episode, since there is another similar understudy, unidentified.

The Master Minds

Ray is in footage when, as Steed, he descends on a rope on Desmond Leeming (Joe Farrar). Also there is another stuntman for Patrick Macnee in final fight of this episode, unidentified.
