Oh my Steed, finally, my eyes opened. Very Happy

Funny, for several years I could not figure out who it was in the screenshot below (photographer in episode The Midas Touch), although the face seemed familiar. This time I was able to identify immediately:



Alan Meacham

Hmm, other museum visitor in episode The Midas Touch looks like Bunny Seaman. Confused



For comparison, below is Bunny in episode Rachel in Danger (1978) of 'Armchair Thriller'.

This woman bares a very strong resemblance to a lady at the closing down part in The Hour That Never Was - she wears a hat there too.

Darren, I'm glad to hear you in this topic. Smile Good note. Thanks!

I looked at a lady with hat at the closing down part in The Hour That Never Was. Wink



Yes, I agree, at first quick glance this may seem like the same person Wink . With examination, can to see the biggest difference is the eyebrows. Bunny's eyebrows are in the form of a bit of half-wave. Second point, the eyes are different (even though screenshot shows a lady with closed eyes, can make calculations in form and location).

Bunny in the mid-1960s:

Here's a better shot of our photographer from The Midas Touch - it's not Alan but is in fact Joe Dunne

Hmmm, and now I think NEITHER woman is Bunny SEaman, but they are very likely to be the same woman. Bunny has a thinn square face, this woman is plumper.

Who played the hands cutting Emma Peel's photo in "The Joker"?

Very good, Piers. Yes, now it is clearly visible that this is not Alan Meacham, but actually not Joe Dunne too. Now I have no ideas for this one.

By the way, Piers, what you use TNA prints as the screenshots on your website? Wink UK?

Thanks Denis, well spotted - Paul, Graeme & Jennifer all confirmed from my end too.
I'm sure that photographer is a stuntman...

Wow, another discovery is: I was just on Moviedude (http://movie-dude.co.uk) and found out that character J. G. Henshaw in episode The Murder Market is credited as actor John Moore there (not Roger Milner).

Actually, ladies and gentlemen!!! Shocked Shocked Shocked

John Moore as Henshaw



Hmm, maybe Roger played in a different version of the episode than John Moore? (as the actor who lies in the bath is different) Confused



That is, maybe Roger Milner played in the version of the episode with Elizabeth Shepherd, while John Moore with Diana Rigg - or vice versa? Confused

If we consider the option that the person in the tub is just a understudy for John Moore, it's hardly Roger Milner, because the function was supposed to perform the stuntman or stand-in in fact.

By the way, interestingly, does anyone know where the point came from, that character was played by Roger Milner?

Well done Denis, definitely John Moore as moviedude has it.
I think the source of the Roger Milner attribution is Weary Sloth's Aveleyman.com but maybe he got it from somewhere else.
It's obviously one of those I took at face value and never checked, he's nothing like Roger Milner.
Interestingly, the original script of The Muder Market gives Terry Richards' character the name SIMMONS.

Oops, I forgot to reply to the message due to the work on site.
It turns out there were quite many well-known performers who simply were not credited in The Avengers at the least in one episode: Aleta Morrison, Anthony Bailey, Julian Holloway, etc.... Now, John Moore too.

Yes, it is possible that the information about Roger Milner came from Aveleyman at that time, when many identifications were taken from there as fact. Confused

Here is how, Terry Richards' character have the name Simmons in original script. Good find! Indeed, Terry had a relatively large role in the episode in order to got name. Smile

Howard Kinglsey's bit-part in "Toy Trap" has the name Robertson.

Well, I just wanted to say that when you find out that an actor with a big role had a name in the script you are not so surprised than for an actor with a small role. Wink

Back to topic.

In these latter months when I look through the list of unidentified Avengers extras, I have a feeling that the actor in the screenshot below, who played as medic in episode Wish You Were Here, is Colin McKenzie . Confused
