Re-embrace your inner child by re-watching The Avengers! Even though I am in my twenties, and was not born when the programme graced our screens, I am slowly becoming a fan of this classic British comedy-drama.
Whilst the episodes are eccentric and serious at the same time, I am immediately drawn to Steed's sidekick, Emma Peel. Diana Rigg was the perfect person to play the role of Mrs Peel, her angular cheekbones and ability to fight a man two of her greatest characteristics. I love the fashion of Mrs Peel, with her wardobe designed by John Bates. The angular shifts, catsuits and mix of colors perfectly sum up the 1960s, and the spirit of The Avengers.
Check out the Emma Peel seasons (4&5) available on Amazon: The Avengers - The Complete Emma Peel Megaset (or simply search for the full seasons on Youtube!)
Keep your eyes 'peeled' for a post on The New Avengers very very soon!
