Welcome to Feather Dusters at 400 Yards, my blog about the British television series The Avengers. There’s a lot of cool stuff to explore in this groundbreaking series that spanned the entire decade of the 1960s: the characters, the performances, scene and episode analysis, technical aspects of the production, and more. Plus there are Avengers music videos and fanfiction and now even fan art! So click on a tag or a category or something in the navigation menu, or just keep scrolling, and explore along with me.
I swear they’re out there, I swear; maybe angels….
Chapter 2 of “The Enemy of My Enemy Is My Friend” is up, wherein Steed attends a briefing with Bond and One-Ten, and Bond drops a (metaphorical) bombshell.
Wherein Steed cuts his walking holiday short to go home and visit his mom. https://therealavengers.wordpress.com/the-apprentice-and-the-beekeeper-3/
Wherein Steed is forced to work together with Bond on an important national security case.
A continuation of “The Apprentice and the Beekeeper” is up at https://therealavengers.wordpress.com/the-apprentice-and-the-beekeeper-2/.
And if you missed the first chapter, you can find it here:
Dame Diana Rigg, who played Emma Peel opposite (Daniel) Patrick Macnee’s John Steed….
… now plays the Duchess of Buccleuch in the TV series Victoria …
Introduction and Overview
The first extended blog series that I attempted when I started writing about The Avengers had to do with my perceptions of the arc of Steed and Mrs Peel’s relationship over the course of the entirety of Season 4. I’m republishing it here, since bits of it connect with new stuff I’m doing, and other bits of it might do so in future. As with the Medieval Maunderings series, I’m reposting here with some light edits that will remain unacknowledged.
There originally were nine parts to this (all of which have titles and subtitles taken from fencing terminology, in honor of the way Mrs Peel is introduced to the audience), to which I tacked on some addenda, and you can get to all of those by following the links below, by scrolling through the posts on my homepage, or by clicking on “Exclusivity Arc” under “Themed Blog Series” in the “Categories” menu.
