Ken Moss and Simon Exton are behind the Kinky Boots podcast - they are going through every Avengers episode reviewing them. Moss is quite new to the show whereas Exton is more familiar with it.

https://soundcloud.com/user-710164892

They've just done episode 15 covering - The Frighteners.

To cover the mostly missing season one episodes they cover the Big Finish audio adaptations.

Thanks for the recommendation! This is right up my boulevard and in my wheelhouse. I love the Big Finish re-enactments of Series 1. Really rounded-out my Avengers experience. Ironic that, as in the Biblical quote, "the first shall come last".

How did you find this, Darren, and how can I get in touch with them? Are they on twitter? Would like to show my appreciation beyond a mere "follow".

"I'm a little more woke, you're a little more gammon"

Though I am 53 years old and look like a gammon, I've been lifelong "woke" thanks to the tolerance preached by Dr Who Smile

"I'll shall go away and admonish myself..."

"Is that what you call it?"

LOL, good that the Avengers kinkiness goes on.

Also, great point that homosexuality was decriminalised in 1967, so a series with a pair of male partners with a "will they, won't they?" Emma/Steed dynamic might've worked, in the UK at least.

We're still waiting...

Me too, now... I'm really enjoying this. I loved their review of Nightmare. It's nearly as much fun as listening to the Series 1 episodes themselves. The medical perspective from a real doctor about Girl on the Trapeze (and other Keel episodes) is an amazing insight.

I did notice in season 12 of the current Doctor Who that Yaz told the others about her feelings for the Doctor - not in so many words, but it's pretty out there. She and Captain Jack have a heart to heart about being left behind by the Doctor. In the first episode of the Flux series we just had, Yaz and the Doctor fall through the front doors of the TARDIS and land on a big double bed (maybe a queen?) that's in the console room, so not much subtlety really.

There was a big heart-to-heart in the last episode of Flux too, as they're spilling their hearts out as Dan comes in or who knows what might've happened (and will, in lots of the fan fiction).

Needless to say it's been rife in my other big fandom, Blakes 7, for the past 40 years - there was even a big Fan War between the pro- and anti- "slash publications" factions in the 90s(?). That series did at least hint at the possibility of pairing-up, as it was shown in more of an adult-oriented "soap" timeslot (now occupied by EastEnders) than early Dr Who was.

Personally I think it's all part of the fun for some people, it says something that these characters and worlds are 'real' enough to them to feel like there is stuff going on beyond the screened stories.

there's the same mind set for many series in the States...the old 'what IF ? ' ETC

True. I think it works better in the minds of the audience than if actually enacted on screen; when Mulder and Scully "got together" romantically in "The X-Files" it wasn't interesting any more.

I used to enjoy "Moonlighting" with Cybill Shepherd and a pre-movies Bruce Willis (when he still had some hair!). They had a feisty relationship but you knew there was some sexual chemistry there.

I've gone right off this now. The unusually hectoring tone of the doctor about how you're not allowed to enjoy the Frighteners and Girl on the Trapeze, going on and on and on about it, just puts me off. He browbeats the other commentator who reasonably points out that Big Finish might as well have made the whole series for the sake of two episodes, and ignores the valid points about remaking Hot Snow. I get the strong feeling neither of them actually like the premise of the series.

As they're ruining my enjoyment of it, I'm going to give the rest of it a miss. Sorry. If I want to hear bigoted fans I can go on numerous social media to hear people slagging off Tara King, the videotaped episode, or that awful harridan Lhbizness here moaning on and on about how she can't stand anyone else playing Steed. Sod this. I need positivity in my life, not people running down perfectly good professional productions.

exactly...when Mulder ended up with Scully, the wind tended to go out of their sails..and it wasn't the same...Then again, every series has a decent run..and after a certain time frame, the scripts get stale, etc

as for Moonlighting, the rancor between Willis and Shepherd, was the engine that drove the series..and once they 'got together' the show went flat, and was soon cancelled.....in real life, there was NO love between those two...which did make a interesting relationship ..etc

you must have been reading my mind...I've felt pretty much the same...and social media, is riddled with numerous 'experts' slagging any number of productions and actors...

I don't have a problem with a legitimate slagging..persay, but 9 nines out of 10, the slagging isn't deserved..or the writer doesn't know squat, and they are just being keyboard commandoes...

Rather interesting interview with "Avengers" historian Dave Rogers in the new edition (tried posting a link... won't let me do it...)

All the best
