To answer some of your other questions - the book is with the same people that announced it - I am one of the partners at Unstoppable so no move to different publisher Smile. I deal with the design side and the book is completely under our control "as it were". I have quite a lot of experience in designing these kinds of books so hopefully i have done a good job here!

I am trying to put together some kind of video to show more of the inside of the book to give a better idea of it's scope

I would say if you are sitting on the fence then the discount codes won't be around forever and this IS a strictly limited edition book

As for Rigg and Thorson - as I say we have every intention of moving on to them next (and much faster).




any sales to the U.S. ?? can I get one ?

Thanks for the info, just seen the video on Facebook, book looks incredible. I have ordered two signed copies, one for myself and another for a good friends 50th birthday.

I received the book. I was surprised and delighted at the number of rehearsal photos, easily spotted as Honor Blackman has yet to have her hair styled and makeup applied.

There is an error in an actor's identification on Page 114. The middle and lower photos on the left incorrectly state Philip Latham as Prof. Cartright. They should read "Peter Copley as Henry Barker" instead.

Thanks for this comment. Just yesterday Unstoppable announced the start of shipping operations worldwide and on the same day it was already received by several customers (people from different parts of the world started writing about receiving this book yesterday). It is very likely that the delivery operation really began to appear on 25 May, and yesterday's announcement was a reminder.

One of the customer comments on 28 May:

I got one too!!! It's a coffee table size book...the pictures are wonderful and many I have not seen before...

According to the parcel tracking info I received, my copy isn't due to arrive until next Thursday - 8 days after it was posted. I live in the UK, which says a lot about the local parcel delivery services... Crying or Very sad

They tried to deliver a parcel to me, it is waiting at my local post office. I won't be able to collect it until Tuesday, but I hope it is The Book!

It will be great to hear your feedback on the book, Franky, when you receive it. Wink On the whole, it seems now that the book has paid off. Hopefully we'll hear about from Steve (Unstoppable) later.

My copy arrived today, a couple of days earlier than expected, and really securely packaged. Only had time for a quick glance, but it looks very good indeed. Very impressed with it so far.

Yes, I've got mine, have not had much chance to read it yet or look at many of the pages but what I have seen is top quality and it's really nicely made. A lovely tribute to the lovely Honor and her time on the show. The extras were nice too like the high-quality prints and bookmarks etc, but which page are we meant to stick the signed book plate on?

There's a new listing on Unstoppable's website for "The Avengers - The Diana Rigg Years - Winter 2022". No other info as yet.
