From comments Diana and Patrick made in interviews well after The Avengers ended, it's clear they always regarded each other with the greatest affection. In a June 2015 interview (just days before Patrick's death), when asked if she stayed in touch with Macnee, Diana responded, "You'll always be close to somebody that you worked with very intimately for so long, and you become really fond of each other. But we haven't seen each other for a very, very long time."
I was struck by the poignancy of the "very, very, long time." I'm curious if anyone knows the date of when they last saw each other. Was it at the last reunion of all the "Avenger's girls"--a BAFTA award, I think? I'm just curious.

She popped in briefly to the Lumiere video launch I think, but left before the video footage starts.

Incidentally was that the last time Honor Blackman and Macnee met, or did she do some Breakfast TV or something with him afterwards?

Yes, Macnee, Blackman and Linda Thorson appeared on the re-launched Anne & Nick breakfast show that was now on the BBC. They were promoting the (then) new Lumiere videos of the series. It was great to see them and i still have it on VHS. This could well be the last time Macnee & Blackman,or all three were together-at least in public. Unless someone on the forum knows otherwise??!!

Was it 1993..? that the Lumiere videos started coming out. I assume the Ann and Nick interview was after the big event launch.

Patrick and Honor appeared together on Channel 4's Light Lunch with Mel and Sue. 20th May 1997.

The pair both cringed when reminded of Kinky Boots entering the UK Top 10 charts in 1990.

Yes, 1993 after the Lumiere launch, as you say.
I didn't know about the Mel & Sue appearance so that's good to know.

I remember watching the Mel and Sue interview, and Mel said to Patrick the one episode she remembered more than any other was the one with the blue finger, which she thought was quite scary. Patrick said he didn't remember that one at all. He said "Are you sure? I'm sure you're right, but I can't remember a blue finger at all." Mel was adamant, yes she definitely watched it. At first I thought she was mistaken, but then it dawned on me which episode she meant! Anyone care to guess Question Rich.

I assume she meant The Positive-Negative Man - the most fingery episode:)
